Justine Henin wants everyone to know there’s absolutely no way she’s coming back to professional tennis.
“No, no competition is over for me. For me, it’s definitely over. When I took my decision I knew it was forever. So I don’t say I will never be back for an exhibition or for another event in the future. But for me (playing) on the Tour? Yeah, it’s in the past and I won’t come back. I made the right decision and I stick to my decision. I will never change my mind about that decision.”
That stinks, Justine! What I would do to have her come back. Women’s tennis got about 400% uglier to watch when she left and it just keeps getting uglier.

Serena Williams thouroughly demolished world No. 1, Justine Henin, in the Sony Ericsson quarterfinals, 6-2, 6-0, on Tuesday. Serena looked brilliant while Justine struggled with all of her shots, especially her serve, double faulting 5 times. Williams won the last 10 games of the match, giving the world No. 1 a bagel in the second set, Justine’s second of the year. Serena is seeking her fifth Miami title and could meet sister, Venus, in the semis. With the win, Serena takes a 7-6 lead in the pair’s head-to-head.

World number 1, Justine Henin, lost in the quarterfinals of Dubai to Francesca Schiavone today with a score of 6-7 (3), 6-7 (4). Henin was previously undefeated at Dubai, winning 17 straight matches. Could this be the beginning of the end for Justine Henin? I sure hope so. I’m so sick of Justine winning everything.
In more quarterfinal action we saw a less shocking but still surprising upset. Elena Dementieva took out world number 2, Ana Ivanovic, in 3 sets, 5-7, 6-3, 6-3. I know a lot of people are bashing Ana because of this recent loss saying that she’ll never win a grand slam and whatnot, but they really have to look at the big picture. First off, Dementieva is a two-time grand slam runner-up and former Top 5 player, not exactly pathetic. Also, Ivanovic is coming off an ankle injury that forced her to withdraw from Doha only a week before. So people, you can stop writing her off as an underachiever, she has plenty of time left.
