Rodriguez plays down Henin's chances at SW19

Justine Henin's coach, Carlos Rodriguez, is playing down Henin's chances at Wimbledon this year.
"Justine is not a candidate for victory at Wimbledon," he told Belgian newspaper La Derniere Heure. "She has a chance, but there are girls who have more claim to the title than her. I'd like to wrong, but she needs more time.

"After [she reached] those two finals in Australia, everyone saw her as the queen again, but I knew it would be more complicated. In Australia, she arrived fresh, without pressure and could count on the element of surprise. Today, that's not the case.
"The main objective is to finish the season without injuries, because there's a physical and mental fatigue that sets in."
