Justine Henin calls it quits…..for the second time!

Former world number one Justine Henin has been forced to retire from tennis for the second time because of a recurring elbow injury.

The 28-year-old Belgian announced the news on her website stating that her elbow had been “damaged” during the recent Australian Open.

“In these recent months I have rarely been spared of the pain,” she said.

“The doctors told me my elbow is too fragile and therefore I cannot continue my profession at this high level.”

Henin’s final match was a third-round defeat by Russia’s Svetlana Kuznetsova in Melbourne last weekend.
