Henin beat Kirsten Flipkens in the semi-final of this tennis exhibition on Saturday and the next day she defeated Flavia Pennetta 6-4 6-4 to win the trophy.
Henin is due to make her official return to the WTA circuit in the Brisbane tournament that starts on January 3, 2010.
“It is another Justine Henin who will try and go out there and achieve her dream of finally winning Wimbledon,” Henin said. “I don’t know if it’s possible but that just makes it an even more passionate challenge for me.”
She added: “To be honest, I don’t have any big expectations as regards results in Australia.
“But I will be delighted just to return to the country again, I love it there, and to the official circuit.
“I’ve never regretted my decision to stop playing but now I’m really excited about the prospect of starting a second career that probably won’t look anything like the first, at least in my mind.”
