I don't think with a blister that she will necessarily be impaired.....maybe it felt loose to her when she was running and thought it was best to fix it before it became an issue.

Hell naw, with her lil' cheatin' azz. Seriously though, I think that after what happened at the French Open this year, Justine will probably always be questioned about everything she does on court. There will always be this little light that goes off in the back of fans heads that asks "is she REEEEALY injured" or "is she TRUUULY gonna say she didn't want more time between serves" . I just think that she's gonna be labled as a person who stretches the truth for the rest of her career because of what she did at the French.

I didn't see the match. How long did this break take? Was it significantly longer than the break between sets? This was taken at the close of the first set right?

lol, she took an injury break to have her blisters retaped...it's not like she pretended to go through childbirth between sets or anything

what's next? If Justine takes a bathroom break in a match will people ask: "Did she really look like she needed to use the bathroom? or was she faking it?"

Yes but she'll have at least one grand slam trophy and millions in prizemoney and a place in tennis history (especially Belgium's). I'd rather be her than you. You can't complain much from her perspective.

Come on guys Kim had the match on her racquet I don' know what happend she just felt apart. And Please all Justine did was change the tape from her blister, that's not a big deal. I remember when they show Serena changing the tape and her huge blister.

I think she did appear injured cos she was slower than usual, although she started to turn the match around down 0-4 in the 1st set. Once she got off to a flier in the 2nd set Kim just sort of gave up.

It was Kim's poor mental game that let her down, obviously something of Davenport rubbed off on her during the semis.

I don't understand why Kim is saying how unfair it is that Justine apparantly takes an injury time out in each of their matches cos she is still ahead on the h2h so why complain????? Obviously it did not used to affect her but now that it does, she cannot get it out of her head, that is bad mental attitude and something only Kim herself can improve, instead of looking for excuses. She was just pissed off and a bit desperate after losing the match from a set up (Wimbledon anyone?) so she looked for excuses. I certainly do not hold this against Kim cos she is going through a tough stage at the mo, and I hope she gets through it.

changing a tape around a foot takes more time then a normal break between games..that's why they used a injury time-out.

She had a blister. If you didn't see that, then you need to wear glasses.
