Wild card entrant Justine Henin today returned to winner's circle after almost two years of mini-retirement and struggle to win the 2010 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, Premier WTA event being played in Stuttgart, Germany.
Henin opened the match on a good note and pocketed the opening set without much ado. The second set saw a shift in momentum when Stosur brought her A game together to level the match at one set a piece.
The decider turned out to be lopsided affair as Henin reeled off six gmes in a row to complete the 6-4, 2-6, 6-1 win in one hour and 40 minutes of play.
"I never thought I'd be back in Stuttgart a year ago. And especially for it to be on clay now, it means a lot to me," Henin said. "When I saw Roger Federer winning the French Open, it brought back the fire that wasn't there anymore before. It has been a lot of work but I'm ready for it. It's great to be back and share these emotions with all of you guys. I had a fantastic week. Everything was perfect."
This was Henin's third final of the year after runner up finishes in Melbourne and Brisbane. The victory today gave Henin her 42nd Sony Ericsson WTA Singles title, just one shy of current tour leader Venus Williams (43).
