Long there’s been no news about former world number one Justine Henin. Finally, here’s an update. On September 27th, the four-time French Open champion will officially open her new tennis academy at the Mission Inn Resort & Club in Florida.
We’ve known about Justine’s plans for the academy in Florida since March. The 1,000-acre Mission Inn Resort & Club is located in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida, thirty-five minutes northwest of Orlando. It’s Henin’s second tennis academy, the other one is in her home Belgium.
Since retiring from the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour in May, the winner of seven Grand Slam titles has devoted her time to furthering the sport of tennis in Belgium and now the United States. (source: On the Baseline)
