Justine is still with the trainers on site:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Justine Henin-Hardenne was listed as questionable for the U.S. Open women's final against Kim Clijsters on Saturday night after being treated for dehydration with intravenous fluids following her semifinal victory over Jennifer Capriati.

Henin-Hardenne was troubled by cramps in her left leg in the final stages of her 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 (4) victory over Capriati on Friday night. She received intravenous fluids as soon as she came off court and left the National Tennis Center at 2:40 a.m., two hours after completing her match. She was treated by tournament physician Michelle Gebrian.

When Henin-Hardenne returned to the grounds after 3 p.m. on Saturday, she spent time with the trainers.

I really hope she play!
Still sad that there isn't more time for her to recover. What a task to play a huge match again not even 24 hours after such a dramatic match

:sad:

She should withdraw and reinstate Capriati to play Clijisters in the final. No one wants this all Belguim final in NY.
oh shut up! If Justine doesn't play the final this US Open will just be an even bigger mess.

The Open will not stand for a walkover final so that is why I think if the WTA tour do not declare her fit they will move the final to Sunday afternoon, with men's at night. The TV networks will suffer without a final so I think that is the only course of action. However, I think Justine will play and declare herself fit enough, she will run on pure adrenaline!

Even if she is not able to play 100% she will take the court just like venus did at wimbledon. To not play a grandslam final after earning your way there is unthinkable. She would have had to break a bone or something not to be there and even then she would show up with crutches.

In the juniors, there have been. In Masters Series events for the men, there have been. So my assumption is, no.

You shut up shap_half, your an asshole. No one in America wants a damn all Belguim final, the French was bad enough.
Speak for yourself.

I'd much rather have the Belgians in the final than seeing that ill-tempered bitch Crapriati in the final. It never ceases to amaze me just how pissy she is on court.
