Henin defends Eastbourne title
In what was obviously a very close match, Justine Henin defeated Amelie Mauresmo, 7-5, 6-7, 7-6 to win the International Women's Open in Eastbourne. The final lasted over 2 1/2 hours. The good news for Mauresmo fans is that--despite a very long break because of surgery, followed by a 10-day injury time-out--Mauresmo appears to be playing in form.
