    Ok, So Henin-Hardenne has just withdrawn from the Aussie, but this time it's due to a strained knee? Makes me wonder if it is still cause she is so tired?

    I never really understood this energy zapping virus that they say she has, what exactly is it, cause I can't remember hearing it about other athletes. I mean I admit when she was playing, she was playing a lot, but it's affected her for almost a year now, and it's not exactly an injury like some of the other players. I guess she is always tired after matches though, I mean I remember her having to get some IV's after some matches. So what's up with that?

    Even more is that she seems to have no affects of the virus when she plays, for instance when she won the olympics.

    Could someone explain what she is suffering from?

    Balco labs closed down. Now she's trying to avoid detection for doping. Maybe a WTA conspiracy. ;)

    It could be herpes. Justine gets a lot of sores around her mouth.

    There is a microfracture on her knee. She has been training in Florida. She looked great.

    This subject has talked about several times on this board. She has mono type virus (In April, she was diagnosed with cytomegalovirus, a virus that affects the immune system and causes severe fatigue.)
    , which ususally takes 6-8 months to recover. There were several athletes had this before. Several people on this board said they had before. It took a long time to recover.
