AVE-ET-AUFFE, Belgium - Justine Henin, who made an inspired return to the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour at the beginning of the season and had almost worked her way back into the Top 10 after just half the year, will unfortunately be out the rest of the year due to a right elbow injury suffered at Wimbledon.

Henin fell on her elbow in her match against Kim Clijsters at the All-England Club and had previously pulled out of all summer events, including the US Open, but has extended that until the end of 2010. She will return in 2011.

"I took several medical examinations... It is going in the right direction," Henin said. "For my preparation in 2011 I cannot take any risks, so I hope to go back to practice in October. I'll work hard to get ready for this new season!"

Henin spent nearly two years in retirement, from May 2008 until the start of 2010, then rocked women's tennis by reaching back-to-back finals at Brisbane and the Australian Open this year. She has won two titles since coming back.
