OMG I just saw it on eurosport.


Out of 6 top 10 players anounced at some point, only one will have actually competed.
Luckily, it was the one the people in Antwerp want to see most

Donderdagmorgen om 9u15 heeft Justine Henin-Hardenne aan de WTA Tour gemeld dat zij zich terugtrekt uit de Proximus Diamond Games. Momenteel werkt de organisatie in overleg met de WTA Tour aan een nieuw spelschema voor donderdagavond.

De eerste wedstrijd van Justine Henin-Hardenne stond gepland voor vanavond en wordt vervangen door de kwartfinale in het dubbelspel van Elke en Kim Clijsters tegen Emilie Loit en Petra Mandula.

Een officiŽle mededeling in verband met dit laattijdig forfait volgt later. Justine wordt in de tabel vervangen door lucky loser Stephanie Foretz uit Frankrijk.

You can hardly say this isn't the best possible solution, which will still please quite a few spectators

Where would the tournament be if Clijsters wouldn't be playing?

yeah only a few..this is the day that all the Justinefans are coming. I doubt they will be very pleased to see a doublematch with Clijsters instead

The docter advised Justine not to play. I don't know what's wrong

Henin pulls out of Antwerp

Belgian world number one Justine Henin-Hardenne has withdrawn from the WTA Antwerp tournament due to a respiratory problem, organisers said on Thursday. Follow our LIVE coverage from 12 noon and on Eurosport TV from 13:30 cet!

"She is not playing, I just learned it from the WTA," tournament organiser Bob Verbeeck said.

Henin-Hardenne had been due to play her opening match against Czech Denisa Chladkova in the second round on Thursday after being given a late start to help her recover from a throat infection.

Defending champion Venus Williams, the third seed, pulled out of the event at the weekend with a knee injury. Henin's withdrawal leaves her second-seeded compatriot Kim Clijsters as the favourite.

I think Justine is trying to spook Kim mentally so that they only meet in GS finals ....................

Patiently waiting to join the silver surfers

...and the season is too long.

...not to mention that we should change the ranking system.

...and The Hand obviously contributed.
