Since when was Henin injured ?

Q. What was the injury?

JUSTINE HENIN: Still very early just to say what happened. I mean, of course, it's a little worse now after the match than during the match. I thought it was really the tendon. We're not quite sure, so I'll have to wait probably a day or two before checking what's happening there. I hope nothing serious.
But it's quite painful now.

Q. In the elbow?

JUSTINE HENIN: In the elbow.

Q. How much did it bother you after it happened?

JUSTINE HENIN: Well, it's very hard to say. I mean, of course, it's been mentally not easy to deal when I fall down on the court and the few games after. It was mentally not easy.
But after that, I mean, it was warm, and I could play. I don't really now how it affected it. So we'll see in the next few days.

Q. Was there a particular shot that it bothered you on the most?

JUSTINE HENIN: On serve and backhand a little bit. But we'll see.

Q. Did you hurt it jamming it into the ground or...

JUSTINE HENIN: No, no, it's not like I got shot on the ball.


She didn't seem to be injured to me. Plus why would journalists ask her that in the beginning of the interview ? Excuses, excuses...Even it she was injured I don't think that was classy of her to dwell on it, thus dwarfing Kim's victory.

She fell at 2-0 in the first set and had the trainer on a couple of times for her arm.

I think she called for the trainer when she was up 4-1 in the first?

Hmm. Responding to five consecutive questions about it during a mandatory press conference is "dwelling" now? Someone call Webster's.

Why is this bashing?

Henin had a very hard fall and may have hurt hurt herself.

In fact she did hurt heself.
Perhaps, some people were not aware of it.

Please don't start this BS! Justine literally said her elbow injury was not an excuse at all for her loss and praised Kim a lot for the victory.

So don't talk crap. Troll...

Re: Since when was Henin injured ?

Justine did not use it as an excuse at all and if you read the interview you will see that she was specifically trying to avoid giving that impression. It may have affected mentally however IMO.

Duh - do you have you a brain cell? She fell and the trainer was on giving treatment to it. And you wonder why journalists would ask her about that?

I agree, justine did not use it as an excuse.

Instead, I thought she tried to make it a non-factor.
In my personal opinion optinion, it may have been a factor.
It was her playing arm, her right arm, I beleive.

Re: Since when was Henin injured ?

She got injured after she lost the match, duh!

Then she realised she had the injury all through the tournament, obviously

That is not fair.
She called the trainer during the match, after the fall.

In her interview, she did everying not make it a factor in her loss.

This is bashing because people are making big deals out of everything. Very drama filled day.
