Henin reaches third round after brief cameo in Paris

Paris: Belgium`s Justine Henin made a brief cameo appearance on Centre Court to complete a 6-3, 6-3 win over Czech Klara Zakopalova in the second round of the French Open on Friday.

The match was interrupted by dusk and rain on Thursday with the four-times champion holding a 3-2 advantage in the second set and the Belgian started confidently, breaking her opponent`s serve to open a 4-2 lead.

She was broken back but won the last two games to prevail on her fourth match point with a forehand winner down the line after one hour and 15 minutes.

The 22nd-seeded Henin, back from 20 months in retirement, will next face either Russian 12th seed Maria Sharapova or compatriot Kirsten Flipkens.
