WHY JUSTINE HENIN REALLY CAME BACK TO TENNIS

As Justine Henin soars in her comeback to tennis at the 2010 Australian Open, it again begs the question – why REALLY did she come back to tennis? She ended her a 20-month retirement be venturing down to Australia to return to the WTA Tour and do what she does best – play tennis. As the following video clips show, we certainly know that what Justine does not do best is acting, singing and being a television presenter… Justine may have come to this conclusion and realized tennis wasn’t so bad after all….

Learn tennis by watching your idols on TV

It’s a given that any person who wants to improve their tennis skills must watch their favorite pros on television. Let’s just hope they’re not trying to emulate the games of Mikhail Youzhny or Serena Williams.

The frustrated Russian nearly gave himself a concussion while berating himself for losing a match point against Nicolas Almagro at the Sony Ericsson Open. He eventually won that match, but, without his head likely still rattling, lost in the next round.

And Serena destroyed a racquet after conceding a break point to Jelena Jankovic in the sloppy women’s final. (Video: Watch Serena’s racquet abuse.) Like Youzhny, Serena won her match. One can only hope she was deadpanning with this comment at the post-match press conference: “I smashed a racquet? Are you sure it was me? I guess maybe my hand must have been oily.”

Be nice to your racquets, folks! What did they ever do to you?

Do racquets make for good firewood?

After watching this video of Mike and Bob Bryan practicing the “Romanian Davis Cup Team” volley drill at Delray Beach, I’m ready to hang up my racquet forever.Do the Romanians really drill like that?
