5. Justine Henin-Hardenne

DOB: 01.06.1982
Nationality: Belgian
World Ranking: 5
Australian Open record: 
2002 :: quarter-final
2001 :: fourth round
2000 :: second round
1999 :: n/a
1998 :: n/a

Fresh from her marriage to childhood sweetheart Pierre-Yves, Henin-Hardenne has something to prove in 2003.

Having been hailed as a future Grand Slam winner when she burst onto the scene in 2001, the Belgian has since struggled to live up to that billing.

Nonetheless, the 20-year-old picked up two titles in 2002, reached the semi-finals at Wimbledon and was one of only five players to beat Serena Williams.

Widely regarded as possessing one of the finest backhands in the game, Henin-Hardenne will look to improve on her quarter-final showing at last year's Australian Open.
