Henin's mother routinely took the young Henin across the border to France to watch the French Open.Henin saw the 1992 final involving her idol Steffi Graf and Monica Seles.Her 22 singles titles put her second on the list of Major wins in the female competition since the introduction of the Open Era in 1968 and is third all-time behind Margaret Court (24) and Serena Williams (23).In 1988, she became the first and only tennis player (male or female) to achieve the Golden Slam by winning all four Grand Slam singles titles and the Olympic gold medal in the same calendar year.Can you look back on that kind of time and how different it was and maybe if you have any stories to share about that vacation with Angie?CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Actually, I don’t think it’s that different. So it’s not like we are separated, but it’s like sometimes like we have different priorities or there is just a little bit more busy now.
Notable features of Graf's game were her versatility across all playing surfaces, footwork and her powerful forehand drive. She is the only singles player (male or female) to have achieved a Grand Slam since hard court was introduced as a surface at the US Open in 1978.
She won 5 consecutive Majors (1988 Australian Open to 1989 Australian Open), and seven Majors out of eight, in two calendar years (1988 Australian Open to 1989 US Open, except 1989 French Open).
She reached a total of 31 Grand Slam singles finals.
Although Graf lost, the experience impressed Henin.
Since then, Henin has idolised Graf as her role model.
