Justine Henin claims it was Roger Federer, not Kim Clijsters, who really inspired her return to tennis – by sparking her longing for the one Major she hasn’t won: Wimbledon. These quotes come from her t.v. appearance on RTL-TVI:
“Roger Federer’s victory at Roland Garros spoke to me much more (than Clijster’s comeback) because it made me think of a lot of things in relation to Wimbledon.”
“I felt a lack and maybe for the first time I really felt that Wimbledon was missing from my list of trophies.”
“Winning Wimbledon is a dream. It’s more than an aim, it’s really a dream.”
“I’m giving myself the means to look to achieve great things but will that be enough to win Wimbledon? At the moment I don’t have the answer to that. I know I’m going to work for it though.”
Wow, that’s quite amazing, isn’t it? That one victory could re-ignite Justine Henin’s competitive fire?
