Justine Henin to miss US Open due to Wimbledon injury

Justine Henin

Justine Henin injured her right elbow during the fourth-round defeat by fellow Belgian Kim Clijsters at Wimbledon and will not play tennis for about two months. The break will affect her participation in the “Best of Belgium” exhibition match in Brussels against Clijsters on July 8 (Henin will only attend the event) and, more importantly, the seven-time Grand Slam champion will have to miss the US Open which starts August 30. The former world No.1’s diagnosis is partial ligament fracture at the right elbow. (photo: Ralf Reinecke)

    This is bad news…I was looking forward to watching her play in NYC.

    It must be a Partial ligament tear. Its quite a common injury, as she tried to break her fall on her hands…

    English is not her first language, so you should give her a pass for that. Hope to see her soon,I really wanted to see her at the UO. Ah well, at least Kim will play there.
