Justine Henin to launch 2008 season in Sydney


After skipping the Australian circuit in 2007 because of personal problems, world number one Justine Henin is eager to start the upcoming tennis season at the January 6-12 Medibank International in Sydney.

“I am very excited to be returning to Sydney. As everyone knows the start of 2007 was a very difficult time for me personally and I really missed playing the Australian circuit, but this will make me even more eager to do well in January,” said the 25-year-old Belgian. “I was sad I wasn’t in Australia this year and I hope to take my revenge in a few weeks.”

Henin already won two Medibank International trophies, and in January she’ll compete for her fortieth Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles title. (via On the Baseline)
