No more late-night chocolate boxes for Henin, at least if she is to listen to her nutritionist’s advice.
“I’ve had to stop eating a lot of things,” world No. 1 said on her arrival in Eastbourne for this week’s International Women’s Open. “I can’t eat sugar any more before going to bed. I miss Belgian chocolate a lot.” (Do you remember that severe stomach problems even forced Henin to retire in the middle of the Australian Open final against Amelie Mauresmo?)
Despite winning her fourth Roland Garros title only 10 days ago, Henin feels ready for Wimbledon. “I felt very good in Paris,” she said. “I won all my matches in two sets. I think I feel fresher than I was before Wimbledon last year.”
Maybe she feels so fresh because she has a new physical coach and a different training program.
BTW, I’ve chosen this photo because Justine really looks like: “Give me some chocolate, I was a good girl.”
