QUOTE OF THE DAY: Carlos Rodriguez

Justine is not a candidate for victory at Wimbledon. She has a chance, but there are girls who have more claim to the title than her. I'd like to [be] wrong, but she needs more time.

- Coach Carlos Rodriguez on Justine Henin's chances at Wimbledon next week

Carlos seems to be playing down the pressure since Justine said winning the Big W was the main reason for her returnament. Out loud. In public. But he'd know more than anyone where her game is sitting at the moment.

Still, I'm torn on this one. On the one hand I could see Justine doing well just because she's reached two finals at The All England Club and knows how to play on grass. There are so many lady ballers who don't have enough experience or aren't comfortable playing on the slick stuff.

On the other hand she can be overpowered on this surface and if her serve isn't working (which it hasn't been since her return) she could go out early. So much depends on where she lands in the draw.

I'm thinking a title run at Den Bosch this week would do wonders for the confidence in both of them.

  1. Damn! I forgot to see where Jussie got seeded today. Well, I'm with you, Richie. She needs confidence, her serve fixed, and an easy draw for once. In the meantime, I'll see if I can't light a firecracker under her Belgian a$$ to get her started. That is, if security lets me anywhere near her.

    Buh-bye, Richie! See you in a fortnight! WILL still be here, won't you? Won't you?? *lower lip trembles*

  2. Ah, WAIT! Are you off to "greener" pastures?!? GAH!

    She's seeded 17th...

    *blows kisses, sends firecrackers*
