Justin Henin 2011

El tenis mundial está de luto: Justine Henin anunció, a través de una emocionante carta en su perfil de Facebook, su retirada definitiva del tenis. En el año 2008 había dejado la raqueta de manera temporal, pero ahora en el prólogo del 2011 la cuestión no tiene marcha atrás. La lesión de codo que sufrió en Wimbledon terminó derrotando a la belga ex número uno que dejó su huella en lo más profundo del circuito WTA en el que obtuvo 43 títulos, siete de ellos cosechados en torneos de Grand Slam. Además, de la presea dorada en los Juegos Olímpicos de Atenas 2004. En el amanecer del año 2011, el tenis recibe una dura noticia: la retirada definitiva de Justine Henin, una de las jugadoras más destacadas de los últimos tiempos. La belga, ex número uno del mundo, marcó una época en el circuito femenino y con seriedad, perfil bajo y cara de pocos amigos, se ganó la consideración de propios y extraños, quebrando barreras impensadas e imponiendo su nombre en lo más alto, con siete torneos grandes como bandera. La retirada temporal del 2008 fue un anuncio. Un anticipo de lo que se desencadenó en este temprano 2011. El regreso a las pistas en el 2010 fue un augurio que jamás llegó a consolidarse, porque una maldita lesión en el codo terminó acabando con la paciencia de Henin y también con sus días como tenista profesional. Sensible, conmovedora y sincera, Justine eligió escribir una carta titulada "End of career..." (Final de la carrera), para comunicar su retirada definitiva del circuito. La publicó en su perfil de Facebook oficial y en la misma admite estar "en estado de shock" y que llegó a la decisión "después de haber considerado y siguiendo el consejo de los médicos, está claro que debo aceptar que mi carrera finalmente termina aquí. Aunque es duro, muy duro", argumenta traduciendo dolor en cada letra. A continuación la carta de su retirada definitiva

"Dear all, I address my letter to you because this is currently the best way to express meself, I now experience very difficult times. I have unfortunately not good news. I spent the last days undergoing various medical tests and they have confirmed that my elbow has been damaged by my adventure in Australia. After my crash at Wimbledon in June, I knew it would be difficult to come back. But I had decided to keep playing and to give everything to overcome the injury. In these recent months I have rarely been spared from the pain, those last months were very hard. Time has passed, and the doubts have grown, and only return to the courts would give me answers. Not the answer I was hoping for... unfortunately. I suffered a lot the last week and every day gave me more and more pain, but I believed that my will would take the upper hand. Today, the examinations are clearly and and the doctors formally, my elbow is too fragile and hurt so that my passion and my profession at high level cannot continue to exist. I'm in shock, of course, even whith the work of these past seven months I had to understand that there might be a reason for all this. After having well considered and following the advice of doctors, it is now clear and I accept that my career here ... ... finally ends. Even though it's hard, very hard, while I came back with a tremendous fighting spirit. I'm sorry ... I had hoped for a different return and dreamed of a different ending. I will need time to process all this, but I remain convinced that even with little progress, my level with my return did not meet my expectations, despite everything I've learned a lot over the past 15 months. I turn, and this time, an incredible page of my life ... What a wonderful trip, I have experience during all these years. Today I'm calmer and I can create a positive and rewarding look back on this experience in my life. I would never have reached this level all alone, and I insist to thank all persons who sticked with me during adventures. My coach and my friend Carlos, my family, my friends, my whole team, all those who helped me when it was hard and have shared in my joy. Thank you to my partners for the confidence they have given me, for their support in all circumstances. Thanks to my medical staff who, these last months, were always available and always with great professionalism there for me. Finally and most importantly, thanks everyone. Thanks for standing by my side during all these years. I will never forget your support and your loyalty. And if I only regret one thing, this would be that I've protected myself too hard and that I couldn’t stand closer to you. I hope you will forgive me my clumsiness and a wonderful reminder of shared emotions will keep them together. On the way to new adventures ... See you soon, anywhere ... Justine"
