So Justine Henin announced her retirement due to the elbow injury she sustained at Wimbledon last year. Very sad. Incredible player. Shame I never got to string for her.

I do think the new gameplan to play bigger did her in. I mean it was her choice but why change anything after you left the game from exhaustion? If you come back older trying to bang shot for shot with Serena is just not smart! I guess her elbow paid the price. I will miss her beautiful game as more and more 2hbh baseline sluggers continue to clog the Wta ranks. Good night sweet Justine. Vive le Schiavone!
Yeah, it's sad to see her go again. One of the best one hand backhand in the biz will be missed dearly.
On the bright side, this gives the US Fed Cup team a gleamer of hope. ;-) Now it's just Clijsters, Wickmayer, & Flipkens to deal with. :-o Still not an easy task. ;-) Don't think Venus will be participating now that she's injured, again, at the AO 2011. Let's see if Oudin & Mattek-Sands and pull a miracle for the US.
