I think Justine may have two academys - one in Belgium and another in Florida.  No 100% sure however!

Yup...she does have two.

Thanks! I thought she only had one in Belgium. Didn't know about Florida.

Henin confirms tour return in Brisbane, Australia

BRISBANE, Australia (AP)—Former No. 1-ranked player Justine Henin has confirmed she’ll make her return to the WTA Tour at the Brisbane International two weeks ahead of her comeback to Grand Slam tennis at the Australian Open.

“After a 15-month absence I am pleased to begin my second tennis career at the Brisbane International,” Henin, a seven-time major winner, said in a statement Wednesday. “It will be great to get back to playing competitive tennis again and with the strong field, the same court surface and a similar climate to Melbourne, it will be the perfect preparation leading into the Australian Open.”

Fellow Belgian comeback player Kim Clijsters is also in the women’s draw, along with former French Open champion Ana Ivanovic.

Despite having a No. 1 ranking when she retired in May last year, the 27-year-old Henin does not have a protected ranking. She has been granted wild-card entries for the main draws at Brisbane and the Australian Open.

Henin announced shortly after Clijsters won the U.S. Open in September. Clijsters came back from two years in retirement and became the first mother since Australia’s Evonne Goolagong Cawley at Wimbledon in 1980 to win a Grand Slam singles championship.

The 27-year-old Henin has 41 WTA Tour titles, an Olympic gold medal and has won three of the four majors. She said her goal is to earn a Wimbledon title, the only Grand Slam singles event she hasn’t won. She plans to play at least until the 2012 London Olympics.

The only reason Justine came back to the WTA tour is Deuce.

Belgium's Justine Henin greets her fans after an exhibition match against Belgium's Kirsten Flipkens at the 7th CPH Women Tennis Trophy in Charleroi , Belgium, Saturday Dec. 5, 2009. After a year and a half of retirement, former WTA number 1 Justine Henin makes her return to professional tennis. Henin won 6-4, 6-4.

Can wait to see Justine get back to the number one spot!  It only a matter of time it seems.








Justine is looking like her number one form!

When she retired, I felt she'd come back at some point. Much like Clisters, Davenport, & Hingis did. She knows what it takes to get to the top  & I predict she'll reach the top 10 before the end of 2010.

I get back to you on that!  If she is the number one in 2010; I will fry you on your comments above!  Justine is coming back to win Wimbledon and for the thrills of the game.  Time will tell!  She was number one for 121 weeks straight before she retire!
