Henin Becomes TAO Spokesperson, Visits China Academy

According to Le Vif Weekend, Justine Henin has become the ambassador of the drink Tao. The article states Justine and TAO have “the same values: a love and a respect for nature, the man, his body, his spirit.”

Today, Justine visited a branch of her Tennis Academy in Beijing, China.

“It is really my pleasure to be here. This is not only my first time to the academy in Beijing but also my first trip to China. The trip is very exciting. I want to share a lot with kids after so many years on the tour, not only about tennis, but also about our philosophy on sports and even on life as a whole,” said Henin at the Beijing Potter’s Wheel International Tennis Center, which hosts the branch of her academy.

The branch was set up in February of this year. Henin has praised the potential of Chinese tennis and said she found it interesting to be involved in the course.

“I hope Chinese players will be world No 1s and win Grand Slams. I strongly believe in the future of China’s tennis. That’s why I am here.”
