6:51 pm on 22 September 2009

The Seven-time grand slam winner Justine Henin is due to announce her return to competitive tennis tonight according to reports in her native Belguim.

Henin retired from tennis in 2008, while still ranked number one in the world.

Her compatriot Kim Clijsters recently won the US Open after two years away from the game.

And Clijsters former coach, Carl Maes, who is still heavily involved with tennis in Belguim, says although nothing official has been announced there are indicators Henin may be contemplating a comeback.
