The best thing in the second part of Justine Henin’s career would be a Wimbledon title and even though her coach Carlos Rodriguez doesn’t believe, or at least publicly, that she is capable of winning the grass court Grand Slam just yet, the Belgian former world No.1 is on a very good way to “complete” her career.
The top-seeded Henin defeated Germany’s seventh seed Andrea Petkovic 3-6 6-3 6-4 in the final of the Unicef Open played on grass. She needed three sets to win the last match of the event and rallied from 3-0 in the decider, but a win is a win and I see no reason for Henin not to go all the way to winning her first Wimbledon title.
