Henin-Hardenne
On the list because she completed the "Serena Slam" in 2003, winning the four majors in a row -- the 2002 French Open, Wimbledon, and U.S. Open, and the 2003 Australian Open. So powerful and dominant that in early April, after an eight-month layoff due to injury, she won the Nasdaq 100 in lopsided fashion.
On the list because the 5-6 dynamo was No. 1 in the world last year. Winner of three of the last four Grand Slams. John McEnroe has called her one-handed backhand "the best backhand in the world." And her mental toughness is a plus.
