Reports: Justine Henin appears set to make her comeback

September 21, 2009 | 11:26 am


It appears another Belgian tennis star will be returning to the court.

Two Belgian newspapers are reporting that Justine Henin will announce her comeback to professional tennis on Tuesday. Henin, 27, retired in May 2008 while ranked No. 1 in the world.

Rumors surrounding Henin's potential comeback gained steam after compatriot Kim Clijsters' victory at the U.S. Open earlier this month.
