Justine withdraws from Eastbourne.

I go to the Eastbourne grass tournament every year, since it's close to where my mother lives and a part of the world I grew up in. I have center court tickets for the semi-finals. There is usually quite a variation from year to year with the players who attend. Venus and Serena were there, once I think, and I'm pretty sure that was it. Possibly too English provincial for their jet-setting Californian life-style?

I was looking forward to seeing Justin Henin-Hardenne, but she has withdrawn following her win at the French Open. That's a pity for me, and the tournament, but I sympathise totally with her decision.
