    Justine Henin will return on the WTA tour. She has ordered 14 new rackets strung the same way when she was still active on the tour.
    It will be confirmed tomorrow according to broadcast channel RTBF.

    Wow. This is huge.

    2010 can prove to be a very exciting year, and hopefully with more quality.

    Oh dear. I speak and write three languages but unfortunately not Dutch or French.

    Google translate!

    http://translate.google.com.au/tran...-se-precise-51686&sl=fr&tl=en&history_state0=

    Basically saying the same thing: she has ordered 14 racquets at the same specs she required while she was on tour, but no definitive news on when (or if at all) she is returning to the tour.

    IMO, if she does return, she should come back at Roland Garros. They'd give her a wildcard for sure, and she would win a slam in her first tournament back :D

    Her time is OVER. There is no place for Little girl tennis. She won't crack the top 50 or even 100. Today's game is Big Girl Big game Power tennis.

    Mindless power tennis though. She always outsmarted them, take for example her 6-3 record against Sharapova.

    Shows how very little you know about WTA...

    Henin also played power game, she was just very smart at it.


    Did you ever notice when Henin overpowered Serena?:shock:


    And Kim is not that big, she's even shorter than Jankovic, Serena, Wozniacki..

    Kim is not Big ?? kidding right? Kim has shoulders like NFL linebacker and Legs like Pele. in WTA, it is not height but the width. How much muscle you have in your legs and in your core. That is how woman generate power.

    and Henin beating Serena, Only time Henin beat serena is when Serena is off of her game and making tons of errors and giving away the match. Henin will just run down and keep the ball in play til Serena misses. so only time Serena loses to Henin is when she is off...

    Kim is a big girl... her height is understated in her stats. She was the almost the exact same height as Wozniacki who is 5'10... at the trophy ceremony.

    ^^NOT bad,,,,tiny body but very tight.....but lets admit it. IF Henin and Kim Armwrestled,,,,,, Kim will beat her 10 out of 10 times....... Little girl just has no Core power.. That is why her Moonballing is so effective at French open.......

    Please watch again the US Open 2007, where Henin outhits both Williams sisters on route to the title without dropping a set.

    If Justine and you armwrestled, I'd put my money on Justine's left arm to beat both of yours.

    Do you realize that she didn't retire in 1985?
    She retired last year as #1 WTA player.
    How much did the game change since May 2008???

    Nothing's changed since she left. She was #1 in the Big Girl era you are referring to. Clijsters showed that nothing changed. Henin probably couldn't take that the girl she owned won the US Open with a wild card. Now the Sistas will have to work harder. This is good for the WTA saving the tour from the Serena tirade.

    I have no idea but that's quite funny. Didn't notice before haha.


    It's a shame there's no arm wrestling involved in tennis because then that would be a valid argument... :?
    Check their overall H2H and then their slam H2H. Then come back to us with another LOLworthy post, thank you.

    this post makes you look really dumb. henin owned serena in 2007, beating her in 3 grand slams. serena plays a very high risk (and mindless) game, so of course she is going to make more errors than most. justine out-thought her and outplayed her in all 3 of those grand slams.

    Only place Justine can Outplay Serena is on Clay at the French. On any other court, Only way Serena would lose to Justine is if she is playing badly that day and beating herself.... on top of all this WTA players and Serena Williams have improved Vastly from just 3 years ago.:)
