I understood little from what Justine had to say, but this is what I did understand(stupid French!Big Smile):


She is coming back to professional tennis in 2010, more precisely: the Australian Open.


Other details will follow later.


EDIT -- Justine is planning to go all the way to the 2012 Olympics.

[/quote] OUT = OUT !!   What is it with women's tennis these days !??? Kim ad Justine obviously think the game is crap !!  Too bad for Maria . Less chance to win tournaments.

That's allright, Amarylis, thanx. Justine was just great yesterday. She looked really fantastic, no longer that "little girl" we all knew but a self-confident, mature WOMAN. I really was surprised, never had seen her almost give away a 30'-speech. She told 'bout that internal tennisflame goin' lower but NEVER really away. She always kept on training(something McEnroe already mentioned almost a year ago) while doin' all that other stuff for tv, unicef or football(smokescreen). About her private life,she mentioned her sisters baby and how she would like founding a family, nothing more but that said enough for me. Three months ago she told Carlos about her wish to return on court and the game was on. What a determination(really!!) when she said she would not just return for a year; no, all the way to London. She must be really very, very sure about herself. Not that much about the comeback of KC, although it's always been the same song, "wherever Kim went, Justine followed". I'm pretty sure(can't explain it, but felt it so very much) we'll see "another" Justine when she starts her second career down-under.[H]( Anyway, it's all over the net, newspapers and tv).

Pleaseeeeeeee, let Justine not comeback !! It will be more difficult for Maria to win tournaments. Out=out !!


[/quote]


That is the only reason I have for not wanting Justine to return - the fact that it will make it harder for Maria, JJ and Kim to win slams and tournaments, but overall I think it's gonna be great for the WTA and I am kinda excited to see what happens with this rumour. [:)]

Justine was playing crap tennis the entire 2008 before she retired. If she were to return to the same level, she's still wouldn't be good enough. We'll have to see if she ups her level even higher than 2008.

Funny this wave of unretiring - or deretiring? So when a tennis player says she's gonna retire, we have to understand that she just wants to stay away to accomplish other tasks, let say getting married, having a baby, recovering from injuries or simply doing nothing until she comes back because tennis is definitely her thing!


Mauresmo also announced she's gonna retire. For how long? Is she gonna make a baby too??? IMO the only player we want to retire for real is Serena, right?

I hear that! [H] Yeah, it is absurd. It would be better if they just called it a sabbatical, though the rules wouldn't be any different. They're only dropped off the rankings when they request it. But if a player is gone over a year, all her points will have expired anyway.

Thanx, Tiger. [H] I felt sure there would be some sort of warm-up before AO.

Okay, here's one gonna raise some stink. [;)] Eurosport.ru reports former Russian star Evgeny Kafelnikov, calling for understanding of Andre Agassi's position, asserts his belief that Justine Henin left the game for a certain period because of a positive drug test that went unreported.


If there is anything to that, we'll be hearing some more.


Kafelnikov & Agassi

I think Justine will find it harder to come back than Kim. For sure she won't win in Melbourne. I'm honestly glad she's back though. I think she's matured with age and we will all grow to love her...(for those of you who dislike her).

SATURDAY, 12/12/09 - Henin against Petrova at the foot of the pyramids [ip]
Justine Henin will carry out an exhibition on December 12 in Cairo. She will meet the Russian Nadia Petrova in the open air.


The Italian Tennis Federation site http://www.federtennis.i...lioNews.asp?IDNews=44815 reports its channel SuperTennis will show the match: "...Cairo (Egypt), Justine Henin challenges in an interesting exhibition the Russian Nadia Petrova. The match will be transmitted in direct (LIVE) on "SuperTennis" from the hours 13.00 (CET)."


That will be 14.00hrs in Cairo (12:00 noon GMT) [07:00 EST in US]. As of the Fed Cup final, I was still able to access SuperTennis at:


http://free-tv.dk/tennis.html


There are other portals around the Net. Geeked




 


Justine Henin to Face Nadia Petrova in Exo in Cairo






Former world number 1, Justine Henin, is set to face world number 20, Nadia Petrova, in an exhibition match in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, on December 12th.

The Belgian star was set to play an exo in Dubai, but it was canceled and will now face Petrova at the Gezira Sporting Club in Cairo.

Petrova, who reached a career high of number 3 back in 2006, started her tennis career in Cairo, where she spent most of her youth training, since her parents were athletics coaches there.

Petrova and Henin have met on 13 previous occasions, where the Russian only managed to win twice.

Henin just won an exhibition match against her compatriot Kirsten Flipkens in Charleroi in straight sets, and will make her official return to the tour - after her 18-month retirement- in Brisbane next January.

Justine has a brandnew website now she's "back in action"(prefer the previous one, this one is somewhat "colder & businesslike). http://www.justine-henin.be
