Google Down the Line!: (UPDATED) QUOTE OF THE DAY: Justine Henin

Friday, February 25, 2011


[The ball was] more out than on the line…it touched the line. I admit it now.

- Justine Henin on the 2004 Aussie Open final she won against Kim Clijsters, when a TV replay showed Kimmie's swing volley on break point at 3-4 in the decider was actually good though it was called long (pre-instant replay, obvs.)

Along with her recent explanation of "Handgate" at the 2003 French Open against Serena Williams it seems the now-retired-for-good Justine wants to finally have a clear conscious about all those controversial moments in her career.

But why now? Why drudge it all up? No one is asking for an explanation or an apology for that matter. In fact, it may just be throwing rock salt in the wounds of those involved all over again. It seems pointless besides giving her peace of mind.

As you and most other ballers love to say, the past is the past. Move on Justine.

UPDATE: "The past is the past" my ass. Thanks palbi.

  1. I mean, it's not like Serena got over it either!/serenawilliams/status/40863954976641024

  2. Dishonesty festers and probably takes a lot of joy out of those big wins. Sounds like she's doing some cleansing. Bad tarnish.
