I don't think so. Every players have up and downs! Even if I am not a fan of her game I think that she will keep winning one or 2 other slams!!

nope. Henin will find her game again if she still wants it. A dominant season can often leave a player demotivated over the off season and that can carry onto into the new season. obviously it's been quite a long time since she paid it best but i think suggestions that her career is now in terminal decline are idiotic.

it is possible i think, but i think she'll wait til the end of the year


she has been hinting retirement a little in her interviews and although she says at least 2 more years, im not sure, she doesn't seem focused on tennis at all

So do I. I think certain fan bases *want* to believe that, but it's funny--in all of the gloating, no one's mentioned her knee injury.

Justine won't retire. Just because of a few uncharacteristic losses.

Even if she would, Justine would definitely NOT retire before the Olympics.

well said. wouldn't surprise me if she'll play for at least 3 more years.

But she doesn't want it. Her mind is clearly not in tennis anymore.

It seems like she can't wait to stop playing.

prolly not. She had her best year last year so it's not too surprising she would kinda have a let down. She said 2-5 more years and I think she'll stick to that and I think she'll prolly bounce back somewhere maybe even at RG where she is bound to find a lot a lot of confidence.

i dunno she is just focussing on wimbledon this year maybe
the clay tournaments except the FO may just not be motivating enough
when you have such a dominant year you can have a letdown
especially since she has to exert on her body very hard to be dominant

Destiny

No she won't

I hope not any way

Geez, everybody has bad loses and bad patches.
Now the Henin fans know how Venus/Serena fans feel if they lose...... "they should retire" is the most ridiculous statement ever.

Justine has a lot of expectations on her because of 2007 season, she'll find her form in due course.

This really sounds stupid.
She'll still be ranked number one in the world.
She'll still have a slam to defend.

I can't recall any player retiring before defending their slam excluding Pete Sampras.

Why should she retire she just going through a confidence slump and she will get over it like any other athelete.Even though I dont like Justine I soughta like her game,I will take Justine over the 'ovas' and the Serbs.

I can't imagine her retiring this year. Maybe this time next year if her results don't pick up.

Steffi did aswell.

Just like "other fan bases" start retirement threads when certain top players are in a slump. And they also gloat, bash the player, and NEVER consider the injury. It's funny when people get a dose of what they dish out all of the sudden they have a bit of clarity.

I'm just sayin:tape::haha:

I am no fan of Justine, doesn't matter to me if she retires but I can't understand why she would? She is going through a slump, all players have their moments. Serena and Venus have theirs and I don't think they should call it a day. Look at Roger, he has some losses lately in 2008.

I think if she does really badly this year, and doesnt get good results by wimbledon next year, she will retire.

Hopefully she turns it around at rome though, or at least RG.

Idk, i know she won't be number one for long if she plays like this. She has a lot of points to defend this summer. and the gold meadal is not looking to good for her. if she goes out in the quarters or before in RG she will begin her plumit. and she probaly won't defend Eastbourne or her SF wimbledon so she's on her way out. This is a big oppurtunity for the rest of the top five.

Get over the HATE! It is not SANE. We are talking about a tennis player, not a murderer.

I doubt it. At the very least she'll play till the end of the year but realistically I think she'll play for another 3 yrs.

Don't be daft. Every player loses sometimes and doesnt mean anything...........she didnt win Berlin the last two years and still went onto win Roland Garros!

Once time, Justine has said "I would really love to retire on winning a Slam like did Sampras or even Graf... That"s why I love Steffi. " a thing like this... :tape:

Why would she retire :confused: Justine is still a class above the rest in top20. She will win RG anyway :angel:

I think she should. Look at Kim for example. She retired while still at the top of the game and on her own terms. Henin is going to crash and burn out of tennis :lol: :o
