Justine Henin Deals a Blow to Women's Tennis And Retires.......Again

I'm sad to say that Justine Henin has retired from tennis again.  It was so exciting to have her back to add a little depth and consistency to Women's tennis, but unfortunately, she is unable to recover from her elbow injury she received at last year's Wimbledon.  On her facebook page she states:

Dear all,

I address my letter to you because this is currently the best way to express meself, I now experience very difficult times. I have unfortunately not good news. I spent the last days undergoing  various  medical tests and they have confirmed that my elbow has been damaged by my adventure in Australia.

After my crash at Wimbledon in June, I knew it would be difficult to come back. But I had decided to keep playing and to give everything to overcome the injury. In these recent months I have rarely been spared from the pain, those last months were very hard. Time has passed, and the doubts have grown, and only return to the courts would give me answers. Not the answer I was hoping for... unfortunately. I suffered a lot the last week and every day gave me more and more pain, but I believed that my will would take the upper hand. Today, the examinations are clearly and and the doctors formally, my elbow is too fragile and hurt so that my passion and my profession at high level cannot continue to exist.

I'm in shock, of course, even with the work of these past seven months I had to understand that there might be a reason for all this. After having well considered and following the advice of doctors, it is now clear and I accept that my career here ... ... finally ends. Even though it's hard, very hard, while I came back with a tremendous fighting spirit.

I'm sorry ... I had hoped for a different return and dreamed of a different ending. I will need time to process all this, but I remain convinced that even with little progress, my level with my return did not meet my expectations, despite everything I've learned a lot over the past 15 months.

I turn, and this time, an incredible page of my life ... What a wonderful trip, I have experience during all these years. Today I'm calmer and I can create a positive and rewarding look back on this experience in my life.

I would never have reached this level all alone, and I insist to thank all persons who sticked with me during adventures. My coach and my friend Carlos, my family, my friends, my whole team, all those who helped me when it was hard and have shared in my joy. Thank you to my partners for the confidence they have given me, for their support in all circumstances. Thanks to my medical staff who, these last months, were always available and always with great professionalism  there for me.

Finally and most importantly, thanks everyone. Thanks for standing by my side during all these years. I will never forget your support and your loyalty. And if I only regret one thing, this would be that I've protected myself too hard and that I couldn’t stand closer to you.

I hope you will forgive me my clumsiness and a wonderful reminder of shared emotions will keep them together.

On the way to new adventures ...

See you soon, anywhere ...

Justine

You will be missed Justine.

Photos: Rally For (Comic) Relief

I tried to get this post up yesterday, but I was up WAY too late, partially to get myself on the Australian Open schedule, but also because I was analyzing the draw for hours, so do me a favor and take a look at some interesting women's and men's first round matches here and here.  With that said, if you missed the Rally For Relief yesterday, which was an exo to raise money for the devastating floods in Queensland, and if you are a true tennis fan......

Dude. You. Missed. Out.  

The first half cast was: Novak Djokovic, Andy Roddick, Andy Murray, Justine Henin, Victoria Azarenka, Caroline Wozniacki, Pat Rafter, Lleyton Hewitt, and umpire/emcee Jim Courier. They were split into two different teams, Gold and Green, to compete.  At this point I don't completely remember who was playing on what team because it got a little wild out there.

At times you had A-Rod facing 3 ladies because "men like options."  At times there was some singles going on between the players, but, the best is when Ana (you flirty girl you) was on the court.  The men definetely played up her sex appeal, and she and Andy Murray had a bit of a grunt fest when they hit the ball.  Seriously sounded like sexy-times (and YES, it was on purpose.)

Ana was definitely the break out star, (we all know Nole and A-Rod can hold their own at an expo).   All the funny sexual innuendo, (example her telling Novak to get behind her, and then saying "well, you know what I mean") her giggle fits, and tweeners......she just seems like a delightful person, and I am now officially an AnaKAD.

Other highlights:  Nole the photographer, and A-Rod the linesman.  Yes, he went there and called footfaults, even saying it was their right foot.  If you don't know what I mean, you need to google:  US Open, Andy Roddick, and footfault.  I'm SURE it will pop up.

The 2nd half was less entertaining where we had some doubles action between Roger Federer, Kim Clijsters, Samantha Stosur, and Rafael Nadal.  

The unfortunate part was that they didn't mike up the players, so after all the guffawing during the 1st half, it got strangely quiet.  

It got a little better when the women took on the men and won with a fabulous forehand winner from Kim! And then we got to see this:

Hopefully it will be loaded on YouTube at some point and I can share it with you if you didn't see it.  Don't forget if you want to donate to the Queensland Relief Fund, click here.

Rafa's Back, And So Am I

ATP Qatar ExxonMobil Open - Day Six

The end of the 2009 season was undoubtedly a long one.  There were too many injuries, too much complaining about the length of the season, and most importantly there was too little of Rafael Nadal doing what he usually does.......win.  But, it's a new year, and it seems that 2010 has the recipe for some exciting tennis.
