IF Justine Does Not Win Wimbledon, Will She Make Change Of Plans?

Justine's motivation to coming back to tennis and starting her "second" career is to win Wimbledon.
IF she does not win Wimbledon, will we see a re-evaluation of her decision to come back?

Or it will depend on how far she goes in the draw.
  • If she reaches round of 16 or above, she could stick around for one more try.
  • If she fails to reach round of 16, she may decide to re-evaluate whether to stick around and give it another year or surprise everyone and hang it up righ there.

I think she'll definitely re-evaluate, then decide to give it one more go next year.

No. She wants to win again, and I'm sure she is prepared to work harder if she doesn't succeed. Plus, I'm sure it's not just about winning Wimbledon for her... she wants to win other slams as well.

She came back because of her passion for the game, it's her profession.

Re: IF Justine Does Not Win Wimbledon, Will She Make Change Of Plans?

well, she'll have to, because she's not winning it. don't be surprised if henin's "second career" comes to a halt without any additional slams. that's exactly what happened to hingis, who came back with huge expectations, only to discover that the game had evolved in her absence.

It looks like Justine has re-calibrated her expetation after RG loss

Beaten Henin keeps her Wimbledon expectations low

By DPA, IANS

May 31st, 2010

PARIS - Justine Henin said Monday she will take a day to digest her first French Open defeat in six years, with the former number one adding that she would not set any unrealistic goals for Wimbledon.

Henin lost her fourth-round match at Roland Garros 2-6, 6-1, 6-4 to Australian Samantha Stosur, who beat the four-time champion in Henin’s first return to the event since 2007.

The former number one quit the game in May, 2008, but made a u-turn and returned to the WTA in January, reaching the finals of her first two events (Brisbane and the Australian Open) and winning a title last month on clay in Stuttgart.

“Of course it is disappointing, it’s never easy to lose, and especially in this kind of situation,” said the seven-time Grand Slam winner. “I just wanted so much that the adventure could keep going.”
“I wasn’t at my best today. Samantha was the best player on the court, she took her chances, the opportunities.”

Henin said that her next goal will be to prepare for the grass season, but refused to detail just yet her possible schedule outside of Wimbledon starting in three weeks.
It is the only one of the four majors that the 27-year-old has not won, losing finals there in 2001 and 2006.

“In terms of what I’m gonna play before Wimbledon, I still have no idea about my plan. We will discuss this in the next two days.”
“I want to go as far as possible over there. But in 2010, it’s probably a bit too early to say, Well, it’s going to be my goal to win it. There are so many things I have to work on.”

The Belgian said she was not mentally crushed by her Paris loss. “I was really here to play match after match, and that’s what I did.”
“I keep some positive things from this tournament, I never considered myself as the favorite. If I could win have won one more match or two more matches, then you can start dreaming.”

“But that is not the case anymore.”

Henin is realistic, she knows that this year will probably be too early to win Wimbledon.

Re: IF Justine Does Not Win Wimbledon, Will She Make Change Of Plans?

Justine said from the start of her comeback that 2010 will be a year of transition: time to learn and re-adjust. An early loss at Wimbledon in a year in which she's trying to pick up her old tennis self won't change her mind. OTOH she comes across as someone who's re-evaluating herself constantly so who knows how her second career will develop.

No because she knows she won't win Wimbledon this year.
