Tennis: Justine time for champ.

FORMER world No.1 Justine Henin-Hardenne last night revealed she feared for her tennis career as an energy- sapping virus took its toll.

The Belgian began her preparation for the defence of her Australian Open title with an exhibition against Nathalie Dechy in Charleroi yesterday.

It was the first match Henin-Hardenne had played since September - and the 23--year-old admitted: 'I was down and had my doubts - lots of them.' #SCOTTISH ROCKS coach Steve Swanson has told his side they NEED to break their jinx against the British Basketball League's top four sides or risk being also-rans.

They travel to Chester Jets today on the back of a loss to Brighton - and Swanson said: 'The guys believe we have a monkey on our backs.'

#CARLSBERG CAPITALS will try to break their duck on the road in the British National Ice Hockey League at Newcastle tonight.

Dundee Stars host Bracknell while Fife visit Hull Stingrays. #HOSTS Scotland and South Africa will go head-to-head on Tuesday to decide the winner of their three match hockey challenge after the tourists' 2-1 win yesterday. #EX-BERWICK Bandits captain Claus Kristensen has joined speedway arch rivals Newcastle Diamonds.
