Henin-Hardenne will miss Fed Cup
Justine Henin-Hardenne in action at the 2005 US Open
Henin-Hardenne has struggled with illness and injury
Justine Henin-Hardenne has announced she will not play for Belgium in the Fed Cup next year in order to protect her health and fitness.

The former world number one has been struggling with a virus, which leaves her exhausted, as well as injuries for the last 18 months.

As a result, she has had to curtail her playing and training programme.

Belgium take on reigning champions Russia in the first round of the Fed Cup in 2006.

Henin-Hardenne's withdrawal is a huge blow for the Belgians.

US Open champion Kim Clijsters has already indicated she will skip the event if Henin-Hardenne does not take part.
