Henin Has become So Mentally Fragile.

When it gets tight
her Bh breaks down: her serve goes away. Her fh goes short
No and I don't think it's her elbow.

Her trade mark Bh seems to be her weakness now. She gets better with fh

She looked like a lost child.

It's surprising she doesn't get more coaching warnings.

Re: Henin Has become So Mentally Fragile.

Svetlana was just the superior player today. I hope Justine bounces back!

What happened to your 'typical Kuznetsova choke' thread?

How about starting out admitting you were totally wrong about Kuznetsova?

No matches, no big wins, no confidence Same case with many players on the tour.

Re: Henin Has become So Mentally Fragile.

I think her elbow really did hinder her to be totally honest.

I've never seen her ground game so ineffective at points.

DON'T WAVE YOUR HAND AT ME GURLLL!

Re: Henin Has become So Mentally Fragile.

Justine is not as good as she used to be.
For whatever reasons, Kim came back at the same level, Justine didn't. But maybe she can get back there.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there

Re: Henin Has become So Mentally Fragile.

Is it just mental? She seems to have lost her shot-making abilities..
She can do nothing there.

Kim came back to the same level because she didn't enhance herself before retirement.

Re: Henin Has become So Mentally Fragile.

When Kuzzy was choking badly and spraying backhands all over, Justine only needed to keep the ball in play and be more patient. But for some reason, Justine went for too much and ended up dumping everything into the net, even midcourt sitters. Her serve is another glaring weakness for her these days -- serving double faults in the most crucial moments.

Terrible.

How low is she dropping in the rankings? #25-30?

Mentally she isn't the same.

Kim came back refreshed after her hiatus, Justine came back lost.
