Henin powers past Sania

Justine Henin overcame a slow start to beat Sania Mirza 5-7, 6-3, 6-1 at the Australian Open.

Henin, who lost the 2010 final to Serena Williams just weeks into a comeback to the tour, had one set point in the first, but allowed Mirza to break her service, then win the next two games to take the set.

The 11th-seeded Henin rallied in the second set, and then dominated the decider to advance to the second round. The seven-time Grand Slam winner said it was a difficult match. “Even if I wasn’t at my best, I was fighting at every point.”
