Justine Henin will be taking preparation for French Open at Roland Garros

Justine Henin, who is the former world number one tennis player, is now focusing on Roland Garros that is scheduled to be held next month. It will not be an easy challenge for her to win this title fifth time as she was two years away from the clay court. Recently, she has beaten Julia Goerges of Germany in a competitive match in the first round of the Stuttgart WTA tournament on Wednesday. It was her first game on clay court since announcing her retirement in May 2008.

Justine Henin was suffering from broken finger. She wore a splint to protect her broken finger which she suffered in training last week. She was playing in aggressive mood and took the control of the first set in 53 minutes after Julia Goerges forced a tie-breaker.

Despite Justine Henin’s two years break from clay court, she did not forget to show her dominant form once again as she took the control of the second set for 7-6 (7/3), 6-1 victory.

Before taking preparation to play in the French Open at Roland Garros on May 24, she will play in the WTA tournament in Madrid which will start on May 8, 2010. Let’s see if she can get anymore trophy or not.
