Henin out for the rest of the season

Justine Henin announced today that she will not play for the remainder of the 2010 season because of the elbow injury she sustained in July. The former world number 1 fell during her quarterfinal match at Wimbledon, and damaged ligaments in her elbow. She expects to begin practicing again in October.

Quite a contrast between the Henin comeback and the Clijsters comeback. It will be interesting to see how/if Justine gets it together.

It will. Henin's fall was most unfortunate. It really puts her behind.

Henin is still fragile physically. Playing with the big players takes everything out of her. Photos of Oudin show the same thing. A scrunched up face giving it every thing she's got. It must be difficult to be small on the tour. I am sure this puts back Justine's timetable for accomplishing what she wants.
