Exclamation Doctors: Justine Has CMV Viral Infection; Must Rest Until Beginning of May

Updated: 08:35 AM EDT

Tennis-Doctors order Henin-Hardenne to rest

BRUSSELS, April 21 (Reuters) - Doctors have confirmed that world number one Justine Henin-Hardenne is suffering from a viral infection which she says is similar to glandular fever.
A medical report said her tiredness was due to a "CMV viral infection" and prescribed rest until the beginning of May.

She will be reassessed at the beginning of next month to see when she can start playing again, doctors at the Bois de l'Abbaye hospital, near Lige, said.

Henin-Hardenne is due to defend her French Open crown at the end of May. The claycourt grand slam runs from May 24 to June 6.

The 21-year-old Belgian withdrew from the Family Circle Cup in Charleston eight days ago saying that low blood sugar was causing light headedness.

She also pulled out of the Antwerp Diamond Games in February with a respiratory illness.

it's a CytoMegaloVirus. It's not really dangerous, and there's nothing special to do except for resting for the next 2 weeks.

She should be fine soon

I think it is highly doubtful she will be there.

It's a weaker form of the mono. It doesn't take as long to recover.

Indeed, it is doubtful she will play Berlin. She will probably just resume training that week.

At this point, I think the FO is the only tournament she will play on red clay.

I don't think so. The two things are unrelated.

This bit of rest may do JHH some good. Without the illness, she undoubtedly would have playing "deep" into these red clay tourneys. Now, with beginning to train in the beginning of May, she very well might be the freshest of all the top players for the French(=).

If she can train during Berlin, could she not ask for a WC to Rome?

She could, but she wasn't planning on playing that event.

Justine's problem would have been if this happened during the summer and fall because she had a lot to defend then.
