Once the undisputed queen of clay in the mid 2000s, Justine Henin retired during her prime, ranked No. 1 in the world.  Now she has comeback after a lengthy retirement. And although her main goal now is to attain the elusive title Wimbledon, Henin is a strong contender for the French.

Roland Garros, a title many great players have never won, has troubled many players such as the Williams sisters, Sharapova, Dementieva, and more.  Henin, along with Clijsters, has had some success on the red clay though.  Although Clijsters has one the last two meeting between the two, Henin has more mental toughness and consistency to win.  

Henin can gain momentum in the clay court swing this April and mid May, and culminate an excellent clay court season at the season's second grand slam.  Henin will have more confidence with her success on clay, and also the previous major, at Australia, in which she lost the final to Serena in three sets.

It would be an excellent comeback for Justine Henin to win this year's French Open, which she has an excellent chance of winning, and once again, hold the title of being the Queen of Clay.
