    as you all know Justine Henin 7-time grand slam chapion announced that show will come back to the WTA in 2010.
    her first appearance will be at the 2010 Aussie open
    she might possibly have it easy because her first rival serena, is very "image conscious" cause her out burst in us open.
    Venus, is declining
    clijster's only major competition
    there are no DOMINATE players in the WTA



    info from inside tennis mag.

    She's quoted as saying she'll play Sydney, but I can't remember where the quote is...

    Not sure where they get this... Justine and Serena are about the same age (a year apart)... and Justine has been away from the game for quite a while now, coming back to competition is not easy for a young player... at 28 and near the end of your career I would not think it would be easy. However that being said... she is an exceptional player and should transition back easier than most. People that win... know how to win, now if only the body can keep up.

    Justine beat Serena and Venus in the past when they were at their best... why would she not be able to beat them now.

    As I said before, I'm looking forward to seeing her "upset" someone like Jankovic or Ivanovic in the 2nd round. haha

    Justine has been given a wildcard already for Brisbane International as a warmup.

    Wishing JuJu the best. I agree she was no angel but (judging from some childhood photos I've seen) she was a "nerd" who made good.
