Henin was not, by design, a tour runway model, no Williams sister or Maria Sharapova on the marketing side. For that reason, Scott stepped off a plane Wednesday from Rome to say, of Henin’s stunning exit as it relates to the sport a large, “We won’t lose any sleep over it.”
Cold as that sounded, Scott was quick to add that Henin was a joy to behold for the true tennis fan everywhere from the day she appeared until she telephoned Scott on Tuesday to tell him she was out.
He wasn’t shocked after she had confided to him late last year that “she didn’t realize until she put the racket down and went on holiday just how much the year had affected and changed her as a person".

Re: Larry Scott (WTA Ceo) on Henin - "We Won't Lose sleep over it".
what a jackass, he needs to be fired for him to say that about the woman who was just #1 before she retired.
He also has some cocky attitude,i would love to see him play tennis against some of the top 10 and they whoop his ass
