Justine Henin to Reportedly Announce Tennis Return on Tuesday
Former world number one Justine Henin will reportedly end her retirement and announce a comeback to professional tennis on Tuesday, says two prominent Belgian media publications.
Henin retired from the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour on May 14, 2008, ending a distinguished career that included seven major titles.
According to the Associated Press, Belgium’s La Derniere Heure and Le Soir have reported the news of Henin’s imminent return.
It has become somewhat of a trend for players to retire early from tennis, only to announce plans to return only a few years later.
If Henin does announce a return to the sport tomorrow, she will follow in the footsteps of other former number one stars including Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, and most recently her countrywoman and newly crowned US Open champion, Kim Clijsters.
