Justine Henin will play at the Proximus Diamond Games in Antwerp. In the Sportpaleis, the world's number one will see Serena Williams among her competitors and this from 11 to 17 February.

This is a unique opportunity for Henin to be playing for a home audienceof Belgian fans. The title holder of the French Open, the US Open and the Masters will play her first match on Thursday 14 February at 7.30pm. "We really appreciate this gesture a lot", organising director Bob Verbeeck said. "We realize that it is not easy for Henin to reschedule her season. To be able to play in Antwerp, she has to pull out of the Doha tournament." Henin can expect fierce competition from 7 players from the current top 20 of the WTA ranking. Serena Williams, Tatiana Golovin, Daniela Hantuchova and Anna Chakvetadze will also be joining at the Sportpaleis. The organisation has one wild card left for one more top player. This year as well, the Proximus Diamond Games will offer Belgian talent the opportunity to get a taster of the top level. Kirsten Flipkens, Debbrich Feys, Soetkin Van Deun and Davinia Lobbinger received a wildcard for the qualifying draw. Yanina Wickmayer and Caroline Maes already got one for the main draw. Golazo
