Justine Henin wildcard

Australian Open 2004 champion Justine Henin has been granted a wildcard into the 2010 tournament.

“I spoke to Justine’s team over the weekend and was happy to grant her request for a wildcard into the Australian Open,” Tournament Director Craig Tiley said.

“Justine is the ultimate competitor, the winner of seven Grand Slam titles, and we are looking forward to welcoming her back to the Australian Open.

“I know Justine will not have made the decision to come out of retirement lightly, and have no doubt she will be in great shape and prepared to compete against the world’s best.

“Watching Kim Clijsters’ amazing win at the US Open was inspirational – who knows, perhaps the two will meet again at the Australian Open – I’d certainly look forward to that match,” Tiley continued.

The Australian Open offers eight wildcards into both the men’s and women’s events as follows:

1. Reciprocal agreement with French Open

2. Reciprocal agreement with US Open

3. Top Asian players (male and female)

4. Australian Open Play Off winners (Australian players only)

A further four wildcards in both the men’s and women’s draw are allocated at the tournament’s discretion.
