WHY JUSTINE HENIN REALLY CAME BACK TO TENNIS

As Justine Henin soars in her comeback to tennis at the 2010 Australian Open, it again begs the question – why REALLY did she come back to tennis? She ended her a 20-month retirement be venturing down to Australia to return to the WTA Tour and do what she does best – play tennis. As the following video clips show, we certainly know that what Justine does not do best is acting, singing and being a television presenter… Justine may have come to this conclusion and realized tennis wasn’t so bad after all….

A $2 MILLION DAY: ON THIS DAY IN TENNIS HISTORY

From the December 13 chapter of the book ON THIS DAY IN TENNIS HISTORY ($19.95, New Chapter Press, TennisHistoryBook.com

1992 – Michael Stich of Germany concludes an otherwise disappointing season winning the $2 million first prize at the Grand Slam Cup in Munich, Germany, defeating Michael Chang 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 in the final. One year after winning the singles title at Wimbledon, Stich struggles throughout the 1992 season, winning only one title in Rosmalen, the Netherlands, before winning the final tournament of the year with the biggest first prize in the sport. Says Stich after winning in Munich, “I would be much happier winning Wimbledon and getting $10,000 than winning here and getting two million. It counts more for me now that I won the tournament and beat four top ten players. The money comes afterwards, when I’m going to realize just how much I made.”

Justine Needs To Comeback, For Her Own Sake

The Belgian media have recently been speculating that former world No. 1 Justine Henin is preparing for a return to professional tennis at the beginning of next year. Henin, who will compete in an exhibition in Dubai this December, has denied the rumors through her former coach, Carlos Rodriguez.

However, based on her recent forays into the workforce outside of tennis via acting, singing, and as a television presenter, we hope she hasn’t truly quit her day job.
