Justin Henin will be honored by a musical dedicated to her life and the Belgian tennis champion will make a brief appearance in the show which will premier next year at Henin’s tennis academy in Limelette near Brussels. Actors in the musical will mostly be children.
The seven-time Grand Slam champion retired in 2008 while still on top of the WTA rankings, but returned at the beginning of 2010 to experience the taste of competitiveness and winning again. She had a great comeback season, but later it was marred by injury and she retired for the second and final time in January 2011 because of problems with her right elbow.
