Justine Henin Blog: A Great New Adventure
After announcing her comeback to the Sony Ericsson tour to play professional tennis again, Justine Henin wrote a new blog post for all her fans to let them know more about her return to the tennis courts…. Check it out….
My Darling Friends,
After 15 months of absence, I am pleased to announce to you that I’ve decided to begin my second tennis career. I don’t want to describe it as a comeback. It’s a new life that opens for me. Photo
I left tired, exhausted and felt a deep need to prove that I can live differently than only through tennis. I wanted to be like everyone else – to live as an adult, not a child, but as a grown woman.
These past 15 months were difficult at times, but it was very rewarding. I learned new things, and discovered more things about myself. These moments gave me an opportunity to focus only on myself, and it helped me realize that I still had many things yet to achieve. I need to push the limits higher, and explore new challenges.
The challenge today is not about understanding size limitations, but of raising dimensions. And I plan to do exactly that, I am ready to do things differently, I can give and share. What I keep in memory is the human adventure, the bond with you; my fans. I want to give anticipation and emotions.
You probably wonder why I waited so long to make my announcement. I want to make a point and say that it’s not easy for me to keep a fabulous secret, especially to you; my fans.
I am ready today. My team is also ready. And You? Kim and Yanina at the US Open deserved all of your attention for their extraordinary exploits. I respect and owe you all these enjoyable moments too.
I thank you for your confidence and patience. I’m certain that we can leave all together for another great adventure.
Thank you for always being with me.
See You Soon!
