Justine Henin to star in a new comedy show: "The Twelve Jobs of Justine Henin"

Justine Henin, former world No.1 and seven times Grand Slam champion, shocked the tennis world last year when she decided to retire at the tender age of 25.

However, even if Justine has tired of being in the lime-light on the tennis court she is is set to show off some further on-screen talents. According to “Le Soir” newspaper she will appear in the Star of the night TV show on French-language channel RTBF.

The new comedy show will be called “De twaalf werken van Justine Henin”, which translates as “The Twelve works of Justine Henin”.

The show will include the Belgian legend taking on 12 challenges in the hope of revealing more about her personality.

Training with Belgian football team RSC Anderlecht, cooking a meal and attempting to strut her stuff on the catwalk are just some of the challenges Justine will attempt.

OMG.

She'll kick ass on the football team (she used to do football as a kid), so I doubt that will be a challenge. But the catwalk.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Ahhh, you of little faith!!! I bet she does just fine on the catwalk, but you are right, the football field is where she will shine.

I'm a little worried about the cooking segment also - it could be dangerous !

She has nice legs, but her walk is kind of mannish.

She should be fine with the cooking. I saw her cook an egg (?) on the Pirette sketch. Or was it canned baked beans?

I think Justine would work better in a tragedy. Come back to WTA tour Justine!!

i doubt they mean comedy to mean she'll be cracking jokes and doing impersonations. i suspect it's just a translation for a light hearted lifestyle type show.

Haha good for her, you have to applaud the fact that she is expanding her horizons! I wish this would be in english though, I'm def interested in seeing it...I remember I watched her in something like "No Strings" and she seemed like a real genuine person. All the best Justine!

MEN LIE, WOMEN LIE...NUMBERS DON'T!!

Re: Justine Henin to star in a new comedy show: "De twaalf werken van Justine Henin"

A funnier show would be Justine mentoring 12 different WTA stars as they attempt new and exciting lives outside of tennis...

Serena as she opens a Thai restaurant...

JJ as she attempts to climb Mt. Everest...

Maria as she adopts a family of baby orang-utans...

Sveta as she attempts to break Mashona Washington out of prison...

Ana as she learns to speak Finnish...

Juju would mark each out of 10 each week and would eliminate the weakest one in a tense 'live' elimination show hosted by Fern Britton! A panel of judges would include Kaia Kanepi, John McEnroe and Sneki Jankovic, it could be called 'Justine's World'!!! Amazing!

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena
