of Belgium will be aiming to win the US Open title in Flushing Meadows New York this summer.
The Belgian came back to the WTA Tour at the start of the year and was very impressive in reaching the final of the Australian Open in Melbourne where she lost in 3 sets to world number 1 Serena Williams of the USA.
Henin was a strong favourite at the French Open where she was a 4 time champion however she suffered a shock loss to Samantha Stosur of Australia in 3 sets.
The Belgian then lost to her compatriot Kim Clijsters at Wimbledon in 3 sets in the 4th round.
Last year Clijsters won the US Open for the 2nd time in her career when she defeated Caroline Wozniacki in the final in straight sets.
Henin last reached the final in New York in 2006 but lost to Maria Sharapova in straight sets.
