I love Justineīs game, but the last couple of times her competitive edge has been a bit TOOO much.

People say that the sisters always blame injuries for their losses, but thereīs the opposite too..and that is Justine.

Justineīs always saying: Iīm on crutches, I canīt breath, Iīm death....then starts running faster after that.

Always bet on black!

justine doesn' t always say : i'm on crutches, i can't breathe. Jounalists do it for her, because when they meet someone who's ill, who's coughing and looking pale( masters 2003 ), they notice it.

i know that your favourite hobby is to take kim and justine down( i mean, EVERYONE noticed it already ), but sometimes facing the truth doesn't hurt that much

I like to bring Justine and Kim down, huh?!

well hereīs the article:

Taken form tennis-ontheline.com:

Match 3: Justine Henin-Hardenne def. Anastasia Myskina 7-5, 5-7, 7-5.
Just when the evening looked to end at a reasonable hour, Henin-Hardenne and Myskina took the court and provided the drama of the evening. Spectators were stunned as Myskina dominated a slightly off-form #2 Henin-Hardenne and raced to a shocking 5-0 lead in the first set.

But then Henin-Hardenne made a move that should not surprise anyone who has followed the Belgian and her recent controversies. With Steffi Graf-like regularity, Henin-Hardenne has developed a tacky habit of announcing and dwelling on a myriad of injuries, illnesses and other assorted excuses.

Incredibly, Henin-Hardenne managed to announce a back injury 2 months before the upcoming Fed Cup finals. She made it clear then that while she would be able to fulfill her tournament schedule, she expected to be injured by the time Fed Cup would be contested.

Earlier today, word was circulated to media that Henin-Hardenne would bravely compete, despite a sudden “respiratory” issue that reportedly necessitated antibiotics.

And when she found herself down and out, Justine Henin-Hardenne naturally called an illness time out. Her trainer assisted her with an extraordinarily long treatment time (complete with blood pressure apparatus and stethoscope to spotlight the drama).

The tactic worked. Myskina cooled down as Justine Henin-Hardenne suddenly rediscovered her brilliant backhand, amazing all-court coverage and admirable resilience. Myskina crumbled and stood caught in her tracks like a deer in the headlights as Justine Henin-Hardenne trapped her time after time with audacious drop shots and breathtaking passing shots.

Rallying to take 7 consecutive games and the first set, the Belgian was poised to take complete control of the match as Myskina wilted in disappointment.

But a second wind and a few clever drop shots of her own and Myskina climbed back in, finally taking the second set (and a standing ovation) by the same score as she had lost the first.

Through much of the third set, both players competed at a very high level and most points were won rather than lost. And again, Myskina had her chances.

Leading 5-5 and 40-15, the Russian was unable to hold serve and just at the stroke of midnight Justine Henin-Hardenne closed in on a sparkling 7-5, 5-7, 7-5 victory (and yet another standing ovation).

A certain irony would ensue that turns into a reminder that one must not always believe what one reads. Several noted, prominent tennis writers were seen laughing at Henin-Hardenne’s suspect time-out. Later, the same journalists pleaded desperately with WTA staff to rush Justine into her media conference so that they could make their late night deadlines and because they had promised each other that they would grill Henin-Hardenne about the illness that they were so vocally doubting.

When Henin-Hardenne was presented to the media, she was not asked one difficult or controversial question. Her claims of a sinus attack and accelerated heartbeat were accepted at face value.

Those same reporters who cynically and very vocally blasted her behind her back and away from the ears of WTA staffers then printed stories this morning praising Justine Henin-Hardenne using terms like “bravery” and “heroic”. One of these same writers also deliberately changed the attendance figure provided by tour officials without any evidence that it was wrong. Another made up a quote in order to fill space.

Mmmm … could these be the very same “journalists” who have been covering the Bush administration?

Ooops, did I say that in my out-loud voice?


So is it just me or are other people thinking the same?!

Always bet on black!

there are haters everywhere.....the netherlands, the US, ....

if u can actually read you can notice that this "journalist" ( do i dare to even call him/her a journalist ) has made up her / his opinion even before the match

there was a thread about that specific kind of journalists some time ago( don'"t know if it was in GM or justintime ), with a link to an an article ( from a real journalist ) stating the proof that this kind of journalists already made their minds ezen before actually seeing the match.All i can do is suggesting u to read that article. Since you spend your DAYS on this board, checking for that thread wouldn't be a loss of time!!!

Listen wimpboy,what do YOU know about my days?! Because as far I can remember you donīt know me and I CERTAINLY donīt know you....so what makes you think that you know how I spend my days?! And EVEN f you did know me, it ainīt NONE of your business either how I spend my days.

If you think Justine is a saint?! Fine....I just happen to think that some of her behaviour was/is questionable....even moreso when her OWN coach comes out and says so. You donīt agree with me?! Fine..

Always bet on black!
