We’ve missed former world number one Justine Henin since she shocked the tennis world last year by announcing her retirement.
Now, according to French sources, Henin is launching a second career – this time on television. The beloved Belgium tennis star will show her on-screen talents on RTBF channel, participating in two big programs.
Henin will take part in the show called De twaalf werken van Justine Henin, which translates as The twelve works of Justine Henin. The champion will take on twelve personal challenges such training with Belgian soccer team RSC Anderlecht, cooking a meal, and modeling on a catwalk.
Henin will also have a guest role in the highly popular French soap opera called Plus belle la vie, and it appears she will play herself.
In addition, Henin will also start hosting a music show that revolves around Lara Fabian – an international singer she adores and knows well.
Additional info: The new Justine for Kids website has been launched. There you can learn about her new charity organization and its upcoming projects. The website will feature personal stories, photographs and videos to let you follow the works of the association which supports children that are suffering from serious illness.
It will be good to have Henin back in the public eye.
