Did Justine get a stinker of a holiday home in Thailand?



The recently-retired Justine Henin picked up a condo unit with ocean views in Infinity Samui, a new gated lowrise development in Koh Samui, Thailand. The 65-unit development is due for completion in mid-2009.

But did Justine get duped into the PR campaign of a sinking ship? As this forum shows, constructin on the island has run into lots of problems, forcing developers to dump unfinished projects back on the market.

We hope we know what she’s doing!

Maria Sharapova totes Fendi on one arm, slings her gold Prince bag over the other, and cradles her Sony Ericsson phone. Oh, the burden of celebrity!

She scheduled to compete in this week’s Qatar Open as the fourth seed.

(I’m not sure if that’s the actual link to the tourney website. If it is, then FYI webmaster: there are all kinds of things wrong with it.)

New digs: Haaretz reports that Masha bought a 350-square-meter luxury penthouse for 7.5 million Israeli shekels ($2 million). With all her commitments in the Middle East, it’s about time she got a place nearby.
