Henin-Hardenne sustains slight ankle injury

VRT teletekst reports that Justine sustained a slight injury to her ankle during the first set of her match against Ai. Not to make matters worse she didn't take any risks during that match.
However the report she IS supposed to play her semi later today

Come on, have you guys watched the match?

On set point in the first set, she blocked her ankle and collapsed in pain! (They replayed this at least ten times on Eurosport )

I hope it's nothing, but it may bother her today...

Justine said after the match that her ankle is fine.
VRT people obviously hoping that she's injured.

The physical demands of the game on players who play a lot of tournaments, get deep into every one (juju is usually in the finals of the tournaments she plays), and train and travel constantly must be intense. I doubt whether any of us would last long at all without being plagued by injuries, cramping and soreness, fatigue, and minor illnesses. Perhaps Justine should cut down a bit next year, but that is a different issue.

I can only assume that people who constantly question injuries, aches, illnesses etc have lived lives wrapped in cotton wool and have no idea what an intense lifestyle is like.

Slight. Despite the injury, she'll still win...and ruin many of your respective Sundays.

it's the end of the season: i don't think justine ever played that many matches in one year (though this year, she played less tournaments)
Venus is out, Serena is out, Lindsay is out, Capriati is hurt ...
Of course, Justine can have many problems. Those doesn't really prevent her from playing (which is not the case of serena or davenport, though i wonder how venus' problem at strain can long that long).
The more she plays, the more she'll have problems.

Concerning the lost match against sugiyama, it doesn't really bother me : but this loss seems to shadow a bit her tournament (especially if she wins).

Nah, whoever wins will have earned it within the rules. It's just like the ATP. The eventual winner may well have one or more losses along the way. It makes it the more intriguing.

Go Justine (though I've gotta root for Momo in the semi).

Mauresmo better be in the practise courts, reading Justine's interviews will cost her dearly

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

She stumbled and fell. That's all.
