Stuttgart: Belgian wild card Justine Henin reached her third final in four months since her comeback when she defeated Shahar Peer 6-3 6-2 in the semi-finals of the Stuttgart indoor clay tournament on Saturday.

Henin is warming up for her first appearance at Roland Garros since winning her fourth French Open title in 2007.

She has already reached the finals in Brisbane and at the Australian Open since returning to action in January after a 19-month break from the game.

Peer hit back from an early service break to level at 2-2 but after that had little answer to the ruthless Belgian.
