Justine's shoulder injury is very bad?

I got this bad news before the Toronto's final, but anyway, she won the title.
This will effect her show up at USOpen?

No, she was hitting the ball hard. Her chances of winning are better than anyones.

Re: Justine's shoulder injury is very bad?

hmm, i read in local papers, the injury was quite bad that they already arranged a friendly between jankovic n nadia incase henin withdraw from the finals.

henin wasn't even sure of playing the toronto finals till the last minute. however she said, she trainers did a fantastic job on her, allowing her to play.

however, i think it should be fine before the US Open. She would be resting few days in Toronto before going to US.

Re: Justine's shoulder injury is very bad?

the thing about shoulder injuries is that they pop up again when you don't expect it. i have had one all summer and it even hurts when I'm just running on the treadmill at home. they tend to linger and reappear unexpectedly.

Re: Justine's shoulder injury is very bad?

She has chronic tendinitis in the shoulder. It's an old injury to a weak tendon in her shoulder that pops up from time to time. She's used to dealing with it. For crying out loud, she beat the most in-form player on the circuit who was playing high level tennis. She's fine.

Havent you heard! She got an Oscar for her fake injury in Toronto! Once again she proved what a class actress she is.

NO


Jankovic suffers from severe Chinese syndrome! Only God can help her!

Re: Justine's shoulder injury is very bad?

She'll compete, and compete well. However, I think her serve has been her biggest weakness since last year's USO. I don't know what it is, shoulder or form I guess. She used to adjust better to the conditions than she does now. I know she changed her form last summer, and I don't think it's helped her percentage or her injury concerns.

Is it the 7-0 H2H that is making you so upset?

I like Jelena, but when it comes to Oscar's .... isn't Jelena the one that has the most retirements?

Re: Justine's shoulder injury is very bad?

I'm kind of worried about that too. Her forehand was a mess against Jelena for most of the match, and her shoulder could be the reason. She complained about it back after the Wimb QF.

Re: Justine's shoulder injury is very bad?

Personally, I think Justine runs around her backhand too often. John McEnroe alluded to this some time ago. In the final the other day some of her forehand shots were great, but the ones where she ran around the backhand wer way off. Also, according to McEnroe she exerts more energy by running around her backhand too often. As John also said, with that backhand, why do it? When Justine^s backhand is on, it is one of the greatest shots ever!

I hope not!

We need a healthy Justine to add to the US Open field for an interesting fortnight.
