>Justine Henin has announced that her 2010 season has been ended by the elbow injury she sustained during a fall in her match against Kim Clijsters at Wimbledon a few weeks ago. Henin was last see at the exhibition match between Clijsters and Serena Williams that was originally intended to be ‘The Best of Belgium’.
At the event Henin was wearing an elbow brace to try and rest a partially ruptured ligament.
“I’m doing everything required by my medical team to get a good recovery of the injury I had at Wimbledon. I took several medical examinations in recent days and (things) are going in the right direction, it is encouraging news. It is still a slow recovery so I need to be patient again until the end of 2010.
For my preparation for competition in 2011 I cannot take any risks, so I hope to go back to practice in October and I will work hard to get ready for the new season.”
