By the end of the year, Henin was ranked 7th in singles, with three titles to her name. In the fourth round of the Australian Open in Melbourne, she defeated Lindsay Davenport 7–5, 5–7, 9–7.
She began her professional career on the Women's Tennis Association tour in May 1999 as a wild card entry in the Belgian Open clay tournament at Antwerp and became only the fifth player to win her debut WTA Tour event.
Henin won seven Grand Slam singles titles; winning the French Open in 2003, 2005, 20, the US Open in 20 and the Australian Open in 2004. She also won a gold medal in the women's singles at the 2004 Olympic Games and won the year-ending WTA Tour Championships in 20. Tennis experts cite her mental toughness, the completeness and variety of her game, her footspeed and footwork, and her one-handed backhand (which John Mc Enroe described as having the best single-handed backhand in both the women's or men's game, and equated her complete game to a "female Federer") Justine Henin was born in Liège.
When Justine was two, her family moved to a house in Rochefort, situated next to the local tennis club, where she played tennis for the first time.
Henin recovered from a 3–5 deficit in the second set and a 2–5 deficit in the final set and was just two points from defeat eleven times. At her next event, the indoor Sparkassen Cup in Leipzig, she lost to Myskina in the final. Two weeks later at the indoor Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Filderstadt, Henin lost in the final to Clijsters. Henin, however, held this ranking for only one week as she declined to defend her title at the Generali Ladies Linz tournament.
She was treated for muscle cramps and dehydration overnight but returned to play in the final the next day. Had she won this match, she would have immediately replaced Clijsters as the world No. At the Tier I Zurich Open the following week, Henin reached her sixth consecutive final where she defeated Serbia's Jelena Dokić. At the WTA Tour Championships in Los Angeles, Henin defeated Myskina and Capriati but lost to Japan's Ai Sugiyama in her round robin matches.
