Henin-Hardenne Likely Out For Season

Henin-Hardenne Likely Out For Season

09/29/2006

An examination of Justine Henin-Hardenne's injured right knee earlier this week revealed the knee condition has not worsened, but doctors have advised the second-ranked Belgian to rest her knee. It will be at least two weeks before Henin-Hardenne can return to the practice court.




The three-time Roland Garros champion has no plans to play any tournaments prior to the season-ending Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Championships in Madrid and at this point Henin-Hardenne's status for the November 7-12 Madrid tournament is highly questionable.

"Justine will not play any tournaments before Madrid. She does hope that the wound will heal properly to finally participate in the WTA Championships, but this is not yet certain," says a statement posted on Henin-Hardenne's official web site today. "For the last two years, she's made the final eight, but injuries held her back to appear and play at the big tour finale."

Nearly two weeks ago, Henin- Hardenne aggravated an existing right knee injury in her 6-4, 7-5, victory over Italy's Francesca Schiavone in the Fed Cup final between host Belgium and Italy, before Mara Santangelo defeated Belgium's Kirsten Flipkens, 6-7(3), 6-3, 6-0, to even the final at 2-2. Henin-Hardenne played two sets of the decisive doubles match partnering Flipkens before the knee injury forced her to retire while the Belgian duo trailed Schiavone and Roberta Vinci, 3-6, 6-2, 2-0.

"I felt something wrong, something very sudden, but have no regrets," Henin-Hardenne said immediately after the tie. "When I walk on the court it's to give 200 per cent. I couldn’t do more, I gave a lot to the team, it wasn’t enough." The woman who reached all four major finals this year suffered a "tear to the posterior part of her right leg" according to her web site. Mobility is an essential element of the 5-foot-5 3/4 Belgian's game, she will have been sidelined nearly two months by the time the season-ending tournament stars and when you consider she has not played the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Championships since 2003 — Henin-Hardenne has only played the season-ending event twice in her career — her status for the 2006 WTA Tour Championships, which debut in Madrid after a lackluster Los Angeles run, appears unlikely.

Good news that the knee hasn't worsened! Rest and come back to dominate again!

hopefully she is able to play at the YEC, otherwise the tournament will just be a hot mess

Walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone

that's sad for her. but on the bright side, she hates this part of the season, and she should be rested and prepared for the beginning of next year where she should shine.

the downer-- she may not end the year #1 now.

She should definitely just take the rest of the year off -- no sense in risking more damage. She's not defending anything anyway.

I've been saying the same thing since the Italians won FED CUP, Justine isn't going to play the YEC and can afford not to play and still have a good chance at the year ending number one.

Now that Tennis Week has said it maybe Justine Fan will stop bad repping me for stuff.

Of course you would know that, you were the last one to give me one.

Now what did I say that made you angry?
Ahh...I gave a Justine fan a good rep for making a poll about Justine being the best ever.
Very smart.
So if you're nice to Justine, you get bad repped.
When you're not, you get bad repped.
Fuck it I'll just go on a Beyonce crusade with Justine.
