How bad is Henin's ankle?

She keeps talking about it saying she needs rest, can anyone comment on the severity of the injury because shes zooming around the court like noone's business

Quote:
I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

She might slightly superstitious about what might happen if she doesn't use the tape. Or, just very cautious. Hard to tell from what we've seen and heard.

It cant be that bad... her movement hasnt been affected it seems and shes going to have a 3 day break until her match against Patty. Im sure if they treat it well and keep that tape on it she'll be fine for the rest of the tournament...

It's tendonitis.
She's said it's not affecting her movement and the taping is just a precaution.

Justine will be fine. She fights hard and with the way she's playiing tennis right now I see this as her year to complete the career slam. She's not gonna let this derail her from the ultimate goal.

Re: How bad is Henin's ankle?

She's said it's been annoying her but not affecting her movement.
I only know what she's said. I'm not her doctor.
