I know Etcheberry has really gone to work on Justine, beefing her up and improving her endurance. But does anyone else find it strange that she seems to get injured in matches so frequently, despite all the training she does?

The semifinal at the US Open was three hours long, but I was certain that she, with all her conditioning and training, wouldn't have been staggering and cramping at the end. And keep in mind that she hadn't been tested at all with a string of lowly-ranked opponents till the semis.

So what is it, exactly? And is the solution just to train more and more, or is that what is running her into the ground?

The problem she has in her leg is a problem that has source in her back. Against Jennifer it was the 3th time this year she had this problem (the other 2 were against Davenport (AO) and against Kapros in the first round of USopen)

The doctors already examined it and the only thing she can do is rest. The problem probably also has something to do with stress.

Isn't it ironic there is always a new member bashing Justine everyday?

I can't prove it, However, I believe she is on some type of performance enhancing treatment.

Hence - Steroids.
I really don't think she'd be that cavalier about her health! It seems like if anyone would be willing to put in the work required to bulk up, Justine definitely is it. Martina Hingis doesn't seem to have bothered, but Justine is really gunning for the top position and works at it...
