J&S Cup; Henin top-seeded


J&S Cup, which takes place in Warsaw from April 30, has Justine Henin of Belgium as its top seed.

As the first four seeds have a bye in the first round, Justine Henin plays her first match either on Wednesday or on Thursday against the winner of the match between Kaia Kanepi and Anna-Lena Groenefeld . Justine has played Anna-Lena Groenefeld once, at 2006 Roland Garros, and won in straight sets. Estonia’s Kaia Kanepi and world No. 1 have never met so far.

If in the opening round everything goes according to Justine’s plans, she will face Nadia Petrova in the quarterfinals, and then have a semifinal meeting with Jelena Jankovic or Anna Chakvetadze.

This is Henin’s second time to play in Warsaw. Last time, in 2005, she came out as a winner defeating Svetlana Kuznetsova 3-6, 6-2, 7-5. The defending champion this year is Justine’s compatriot, Kim Clijsters, seeded second.
