Hénin might play Indian Wells... If she gets a good start of the year she'll have the rankings to enter IW so she has to play there...

Pierce did say she was returning in 2010. She's currently in heavy training due to the fact she can actually run now. I predict her to jump straight to the clay season... probably a green clay event then two red clay.

The only way she would enter so many tournaments would be if she did poorly in other tournaments.

I think she'll actually skip eastbourne to be more fit during wimbledon, there also the possibility she skips an entire clay season, though that will be most likely the 2nd year, just to win wimbledon.

Agreed ;) I really hope she comes back though, but the clock is ticking..not everyone can make a comeback like Kimiko!!

It's not ISTANBUL as someone mentionned but DOHA.

Istanbul starts 2011 to host YEC.

I am stunned that Mary is coming back. But also delighted, and regardless of her results I will be chearing for her. it is strange that I was not a big fan when she was playing, but truly miss her now. It just goes to show.

I'm hoping Mary's five year rule is going to come into play - '95 Aus Open Champ,
'00 RG Champ, '05 RG, US Open and YEC Finalist, '10 ???

To step onto the court will be enough for me.

C'mon Mary, you can do it!

Wow. We've gotten to the point where Mary Pierce is the last player on tour to win a slam in the mid 90s.
Who would have thought when Mary started playing on the WTA tour in 1989, that her and Kimiko Date Krumm would be the only players who have played WTA sanctioned tournaments in 4 consecutive decades (Kimiko Date-Krumm will be the only player to have competed in slams in 4 consecutive decades if Fabrice Santoro retires).

I really hope she plays.
My mother's birthday was today. She passed away 5 years ago and both of these players are really the only link that I have to my childhood tennis years watching tennis with my mother.

Wawrinka's ass.

Skip an entire clay season? :confused: Justine Henin? :confused:

No. I find that highly unlikely. Before her retirement, she was making the latter stages of Wimbledon having played a full clay schedule and winning Roland Garros only a few weeks before. She is not that much older now, and if her game is as good as it was before her retirement, then there will be absolutely no need for her to skip an entire season just to win Wimbledon.

Oh and Mary!!!! :inlove: Please be a successful comeback. :sobbing:

Carlos rodriguez said the reason she won't win wimbledon is because of the french open, and he said there could be a year where she skips the french to be fresh at wimbledon :)

Justine is more likely to play Stuttgart instead of Rome...She has no ranking, is not forced to play Rome and she skiped it so many times

I think she will play the schedule we are used to No big chances.

Pierce coming back, too good to be true..

I would advice her to play a few challengers before wta level, she needs matches...won't get them if she enters premium events

:lol: Well Carlos Rodriguez doesn't have the gift of foresight. ;)

and he said there could be a year where she skips the french to be fresh at wimbledon :)
Okay, but I just cannot see her skipping Roland Garros in order to try and win Wimbledon. It would add SO much pressure come time for Wimbledon, and it's just stupid. :shrug: In the past, playing 7 matches at RG hasn't hindered her at Wimbledon. I see no reason why it would in the second part of her career, because there's no reason she won't be just as fit as she was before.

He said it could happen, but I'll be shocked if it ever does.
