illness, my foot. Pure explanation of failure. Henin is overhyped. Simple. She has some good techniques but she is not all that like many claim she is. No matter her excuses, she should not have lost to Tatiana. It's makes me consider her a tier 2 or 3 player because she should have fared much better. Her overhyped forehand was a mess. That has always been her problem, and will remain until she makes adjustments. Her clay abilities, to me, have diminished, as you can tell throughout this year that in all her clay matches, she was taking too many balls early and mistiming wrongly like it's normally done on hardcourts. So, it's not sickness excuses like has been said, her improve techniques on hard have cost her some pain on clay in terms of timing and normal adjustments.
