"Je ferai sans doute ma rentrée à Varsovie (30 avril-6 mai). J'ai besoin d'un break", a-t-elle ajouté après sa défaite face à l'Américaine Serena Williams (0-6, 7-5, 6-3). (CER) ..

She's going home to rest (she said that she needs a break)
and to take care of her respiratory problems and will return to play in Warsaw.

Noooooooo....:( Are you sure.

Oh, those respiratory probs?

But why not go to Charleston and see if it gets better. Although it's kinda scary that the cold sore also resurfaced.

:confused: looks like those falls hurt her more than it looked. Her body's frail to begin with (kinda like Venus) breaks down easily. Ohh well she doesn't really need the match play on clay, she good enough to still win the FO. Which is exactly what she did last year.

so it wasn't the fall? still a good decision for her. Her body breaks down easily so better to give it rest then to risk injury at charleston.

She will not play Charleston. She will go home and rest because she has had breath problem since she's in Miami. She will play her first clay tournament at Varsovie instead of Charleston. And she said she need a break.

Not an injury; it's her breathing probs. Probably wants to check in with her own doctors who know her medical history. The last thing she needs is a return of that dreaded viral illness, and she's probably somewhat worried about that. :sad:

Rest up and come back fit, Justine. :kiss:

She had 3 weeks break before coming to Miami. Something's up.

I thought she would at least wait awhile to see if those respiratory problems go away when she leaves Miami.

Janie, did she have breathing problems before the CMV disabled her in 2004?

That illness started with a sore throat, and this illness or condition started with a sore throat, too.

People should also remember that Justine is still emotionally fragile following this very recent split with her hubby. It's going to be a while before she gets her full resilience back. That will show up later on, when she's able to close out tough matches again, and able to shrug off illnesses and injuries a little bit better again. Have a heart; give the kid time. It's still a tough time for her.

By the way, I said the same thing when people were trashing the Williams sisters for sub-par performances following the murder of their sister. These players are HUMAN. They WILL be affected by what happens in their personal life. Fans have to be a little bit patient at times.

She played 100%...you do not need to make excuses for her, that is not doing justice to how god damn well she played for the majority of that match. Don't patronise her or Serena...:rolleyes:

You're right Janie. But funny enough, I was thinking about what she's been through, and I mentioned it to my mom and she commented it's no wonder she lost like this today.

But now I am a bit scared about this breathing problem. I never heard about the sore throat. I know there was a French article, was there an interview (in English) that mentioned the sore throat? Was it mentioned more than once by her?

You know, if you weren't so on the defense regarding Henin, you would see my post meant I much prefer her losing to having this breathing problem. What is wrong with you? And so what if I really think her trouble breathing cost her in some pts?

Henin withdraws from Charleston tournament
/ Associated Press
Posted: 22 minutes ago

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (AP) - Top-ranked Justine Henin withdrew Saturday from the tournament in Charleston, S.C., beginning April 9, saying she wants to return home to Belgium and rest before beginning her clay-court season.

Henin, who has been battling a respiratory problem, withdrew from the Charleston event after losing to Serena Williams in the final of the Sony Ericsson Open.

"I better go home and see a specialist for my breathing problems," Henin said. "I need this time off."

Henin said her next tournament will be in Warsaw beginning April 30.

Williams said she plans to play Charleston.

I am not in the defense. In only one post above this one you made you say about how your mam said she is not surprised Justine "lost in this way". What is this way? Against a better competitor on the day in an incredibly fought battle...the best match of the season, the best fight of the season? Justine has recovered from her emotional troubles; she played OUTSTANDING today, absolutely outstanding. And I think anyone looking for some half-assed excuses is doing a severe injustice to Justine, Serena, this match and the tournament.

Thankyou.

Point me to the bashing...I think you are hallucinating mate, there has been no bashing of Justine nor her supporters except by one idiotic poster who was obviously in the minoritiy and obviously being an irritating sod. Apart from that, nothing. You use the word "oversensitive"...wow, how apt.

Oh, no. I realize she needs the time off, but I'm really disappointed. First Amelie, now Justine. Justine's withdrawal doesn't affect me the way Amelie's did--I'm very disappointed about not getting to finally see my favorite player--but I'm sorry to lose Justine. She's such a vital part of the Family Circle Cup.

Justine loves to play at FCC. She's had some great memories from that tourney, so if she withdraws than she really does need that break. I hope that her breathing-problems are only due to the weather-conditions in Miami and nothing more serious than that. Get better soon :hug:

I was a bit shoced by the size of that fever sore<?> above her lip. Also, she seemed a bit frail but played very well till that fall. Hopefully her knee isn^t injured and the breathing problems are not serious. Congrats to Serena who again showed what a great champ she is.

OrdinaryfoolisNJ
Apr 1st, 2007, 01:16 AM
I was expecting it.

After losing such an emotional match to Serena, she's tactically smart to go home where she's more comfortable, and get some practice time in on clay before beginning the more important tournaments during the spring clay season.

I don't believe that she's injured at all, but rather being smart.

OrdinaryfoolisNJ

Venus could use the preparation in order to become "match tough." But is she scheduled to play Charleston? When is Amelia Island?

Conversely, I agree that Shrieky and Serena may pull out and take the additional time to practice more on clay before beginning the clay season with so little adjustment time. The event begins on April 9th, which doesn't leave for a lot of time to practice on clay before hand.

This isn't the old days where players felt duty bound to support the tour (and make some bucks). Now they're duty bound to prepare as well as possible for the grand slams (plus there's so much money out there -- who cares about missing a few paychecks).

Its funny, Justine missed the AO but has still played just about as much tennis as everyone else this year. She deserves the break and she knows she won't need as much practice on clay as everyone else.

Serena knows better than to mess up her chances at the French by skipping one of her tuneups. At least I hope she does.

tennnisfannn
Apr 1st, 2007, 01:57 PM
I expect serena will play charleston but no way is she playing berlin and rome back to back, though the last time she did, she won the fO, perhaps it is the routine she needs to adjust to clay.
Plus having won the AO, she is extra motivated to win the FO< coz if she can do that, the GRand Slam is within the realm of possibity.
