Re: Who has the better chance of regaining their form? Maria or Justine?
Neither. Henin isn't trying to regain her old form. She's trying for a whole new form. Henin 1.0 is history.
As for Sharapova, she has basically the same injury that ended Jennifer Capriati's career. The fact that she's on court is a success. But your shoulder isn't the same physical thing after rotator coff surgery. It's not a matter of 'healing'. Things literally attach to each other in different places.
She may eventually be just as successful a player, but she'll never have the same form.
Think Mauresmo '06 vs Maursemo '99. '06 never regained '99's form, post back-injury, but she was a MORE successful player.
Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
