Justine Henin getting ready for a comeback?
Justine Henin retired from professional tennis 15 months ago but now she is training again and the rumors about a comeback started to sound everywhere.
Henin has been training for exhibition matches that she will play at the end of the year in Belgium and Dubai but several papers have speculated she may return to the WTA Tennis Tour like Kim Clijsters did.
Vers l’Avenir newspaper reported that “Juju has as good as taken her decision to return to competition from January” but neither the Belgian tennis federation nor Henin commented on the rumours.
Carlos Rodriguez, her former coach, said: “There’s nobody telling me of a return. We’ve not spoken about that. I am really astonished.”
But he did confirm that “she is training, yes. Two or three times a week to get herself in shape as she’s not played for a year. That’s all.”
Under international anti-doping rules Henin would have to inform the game’s authorities if she were to return three months beforehand.
