More Rumors: Justine Henin working with old fitness coach again!

Justine's working with eric houben again according to several articles.(her old fitness coach) Good signs if it's true. The article is also saying there are rumors about justine to return on gravel, not in australia.

Besides this i don't know if you all know it yet but i've also heard that the dubai exhibition will be against svetlana. Can someone confirm this?

Let's keep our fingers crossed! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

Test Henin in Dubai voor comeback op gravel?

De mogelijke comeback van Justine Henin blijft ook in New York over de tongen gaan. Naar verluidt werkt Justine weer samen met Eric Houben, de ex-hiphopleraar die voor haar afscheid al haar fitnesscoach was. Volgens de believers, een bevestiging van de geruchten als zou ze meer op het oog hebben dan alleen maar de exhibitiewedstrijden in Dubai en Charleroi. In hun scenario zou Henin Dubai en Charleroi aangrijpen als ultieme test voor een mogelijke comeback. Die dan pas voor het gravelseizoen zou zijn gepland. Wat haar ook de ruimte geeft om de sportinstanties tijdig - drie maanden op voorhand - te verwittigen. Wordt ongetwijfeld vervolgd.

All-Time-Great
Justine Henin

Elena, thank you for all the joy you gave me, you will always remain in my mind.

As usual only rumors. It would be weird for her to go to her fitnesscoach even before Rodrigues has even heard anything about a comeback.

If she is serious she will need fitness for sure! Is she ready to take the pounding week in week out from big girls again?Kim has natural power but justine is a tiny woman.It will be harder for her to get to her old level.

Re: More Rumors: Justine Henin working with old fitness coach again!

I think she'll be back. Her retiring was probably just a extreme reaction to how she was feeling at the time. Sounded like a rash decision at the time.

The very fact that she isn't saying something, despite rumors on her comeback, (perhaps) says something.
She and her entourage keep : could be a most meaningfull reply .

Re: More Rumors: Justine Henin working with old fitness coach again!

Honestly she needs to get back to tennis. She has an unreal level of talent and she is the real queen of Roland Garros in the last 15 years. Nobody played as well as Justine on red clay IMO except for Monica Seles or Chris Evert. Justine's game really is unbelievably versatile and well-suited for all surfaces but ESPECIALLY for the dirt. I do like Kuznetsova and Safina too but they are not really at the same level when at their best as Justine imho. Ivanovic was really an off the wall winner but, hey, who knows, maybe she can get her act together again same day.

Re: More Rumors: Justine Henin working with old fitness coach again!

So far I have stayed away from threads about Justine's comeback, but now I seriously think she is planning to come back. If she didnt plan to come back she would've strongly denied the rumours by now. I think she will see how the training sessions go, and will then announce.

That is very possible. If she were to come back, I doubt she would play a full schedule. At this stage she should not need a full time coach. At her comeback she would have no ranking and, therefore, not be considered a top tier player. Would she still be required to play certain tournaments like Miami or Indian Wells? I am inclined to think she would like to concentrate on European and Mid East tournaments and maybe US Clay tournaments. Her main goal should be to win Wimbledon or another FO. She should stay off the hard courts as much as possible! Whatever, I just want her back!!

My guess is she will return two years to the day after she "retired"- to coincide with the end of two-year "hush, hush" ban.

Oh please, she is not the only one to take drugs. Plus, she sells tickets so it would have no sense to ban her without announcing it to the press. Being quiet on drugs takers brings much more $$$ .
