Justine Henin to Win Porsche Grand Prix
And in sports news, Justine Henin beat Samantha Stosur 6-4, 2-6, 6-1 – in one of the finals of the Porsche Grand Prix on Sunday. It was a true moment of glory when she captured her first title after coming out of her retirement in January.
In a former No. 1’s victory on clay, it is going to give her a boost three weeks before the start of the French Open. Henin said that it meant a lot to her and since 4 of Henin’s Grand Slam titles have come on the Roland Garros clay, it inspired her to end her retirement and come out of her shell once again.
At the awarding ceremony, Henin said that this moment has revoked the fire in her and in addition, she also won a Porsche sports car. 18 months ago, the Belgian player was a runner up in Brisbane and at the Australian Open.
She controlled all the big points later on in the match, but in the first set, she lapsed a little. Maybe it was because of the way she felt amidst that raging crowd of spectators, but she finally got a grip and managed to do as much as she could. One year ago, Henin never expected and thought of coming back like this, so it was an emotional moment for her altogether.
