Red face Maria has mixed feelings about Justine's Withdrawal

Maria's mixed feelings on Henin withdrawal

Jan 5 2007


By South Wales Echo

Justine Henin-Hardenne's decision to withdraw from the Australian Open due to 'personal family reasons' has been met with mixed reaction from world number two Maria Sharapova.

'It is very unfortunate for her and you always want to be playing against the top players,' said Sharapova.
'You always want to compete against the best players but you can't expect everyone to play in every grand slam.'

Link to the article can be found at:

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.

Re: Maria has mixed feelings about Justine's Withdrawal

Which of those quotes suggests she has mixed feelings?

All she said was it's unfortunate Justine couldnt play and you always want to play the top players.

Re: Maria has mixed feelings about Justine's Withdrawal

Yeah it's a shame Justine isn't playing. Now I would say the two favourite for the Australian Open are Maria Sharapova and Kim Clijsters. Mauresmo isn't far behind and Nadia, Sveta, Elena D and Martina are in the next category.

Re: Maria has mixed feelings about Justine's Withdrawal

Seriously I hate defending Maria and think that it's really annoying when people take things said about their favourite players to heart, but this article & the person who wrote it have to be stupid to think that those quotes are mixed feelings.
And Maria (and all other players for that matter) should be able to comment all they like, knowing the reasons hasn't stopped alot of people on here "commenting"

Re: Maria has mixed feelings about Justine's Withdrawal

By the way the thread starter over-dramatised it, you would think that is what she said

Re: Maria has mixed feelings about Justine's Withdrawal

What's Maria said that so wrong. All she has said that Justine not being able to play is unfortunate there is nothing wrong with that.

Re: Maria has mixed feelings about Justine's Withdrawal

of course she has mixed feelings. its not good for tennis, or for justine as it is a hard time for her. but it is good for masha, cos it makes the tournament easier for her.

Re: Maria has mixed feelings about Justine's Withdrawal

The thread title is ridiculous, there are no mixed feelings in that quote, I hate it when people try to create something that isn't there.
