Time flies when you’re having fun. It seems just yesterday that Roger was sobbing his nose out at Rod Laver Arena and now we’re already talking about wild cards for the Australian Open.


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.
