First of all, crashing? She lost in three sets. Those were heavy conditions and you can agrue that if had been able to complete her match she might have won.
Second, Henin has been out for less than two years and comes back healthy and recharged. Maria was out with an injury that has changed a lot of her game. It's a struggle to find her old form again.
Finally, yes, Henin hasn't been all that convincing since her return either, but she still made the AO final and won a bigger clay title. But I agree that I wouldn't call it back on track either.
But I think fans should face the facts that things will never trully ever be 'back on track' anymore and just hope Maria can have a good healthy career.
This next Wimbledon is going to be very telling since she's sucked there with injuries and recoveries the last few years.
