Justine Henin-Hardenne Selected Player of the Month for April

St. Petersburg, Florida – The WTA Tour announced today that Justine Henin-Hardenne has been named Player of the Month for April, as voted on by the International Tennis Writers’ Association. This is the first time Henin-Hardenne has been selected by ITWA for the monthly award since the program’s inception in January 2001.

In April, Belgium’s Henin-Hardenne won the Family Circle Cup title in Charleston, South Carolina defeating world No. 1 Serena Williams in the final. As the No. 2 seed, Henin-Hardenne halted Williams’ undefeated streak at 21 consecutive matches along with Williams’ quest to win four consecutive titles this season. Henin-Hardenne was making her first appearance in Charleston and by winning the title, the 20 year old increased her career WTA Tour singles titles to eight. This was Henin-Hardenne's second title of 2003, winning Dubai in February. This was also her second career Tier I tournament title and her first title in the United States.

Following is a list of the 2003 Player of the Month Award recipients:

January – Serena Williams
February – Lindsay Davenport
March – Serena Williams
April – Justine Henin-Hardenne
