Justine Henin's gritty 7-6, 7-5 victory against Jelena Jankovic at the Toronto Cup on Sunday proved that the world No 1 is well prepared for her US Open title bid.

But the Toronto tournament also revealed a fragile shoulder could prevent the Belgian from walking away with the year's final grand slam.

Bothered by a sore right shoulder that flared up during her semifinal defeat of China's Yan Zi, Henin told Tennis Canada officials after Saturday's match that there was only 50/50 chance she would play in the final.

Henin's warning was so serious that tournament organizers hastily arranged an exhibition between Jankovic and Russian Nadia Petrova.
