It looks like Justine Henin never left the tour! Here’s the former No. 1 beating Nadia Petrova 7-5, 7-5 in the first round of the Brisbane International on Monday. Henin entered the tournament with a wild card.
Here are some highlights from the match (sorry if the audio is a little off):
As the commentators mentioned, tournament top seed Kim Clijsters is on the other side of the draw, and in fine form considering her 6-2, 6-1 win over Tathiana Garbin in her first round match. No. 3 seed Ana Ivanovic is also through to the second round, after winning what was described as a “see-saw three-setter” against Jelena Dokic. Ana is on Justine’s side of the draw. Daniela Hantuchova is the No. 4 seed.
