Posted By: Staff

Brisbane (Australia), Dec. 29 (ANI): Former Grand Slam champion Justine Henin has arrived in Brisbane determined to make the most of her "possible" push to win the Australian Open in the third tournament of her comeback.

According to the Courier Mail, Henin had the first training session of her Australian campaign this morning at the Queensland Tennis Centre, where she will chase match practice with a wildcard to the Brisbane International, starting Sunday.

The seven-time Grand Slam champion is third favourite in betting markets for the Australian Open behind world No.1 Serena Williams and Henin's great Belgian rival Kim Clijsters, who will be top seed in Brisbane.

"I think anything is possible, all the time. I go day after day and I hope I have a good preparation the next two weeks," said Henin, who plays her first tournament in 20 months at the Brisbane International.

"I don't plan my career on the next three or four weeks - I plan it for the next three or four years now," she added. (ANI)
