Melbourne, Jan.28 (ANI): Justine Henin has praised fellow star Kim Clijsters' for making the mother of all comebacks.

Henin, who will meet Serena Williams in Saturday's Australia Open woman's final here, said her achievement was nothing compared to what Clijsters, 26, has achieved.

Henin admits Clijsters' inspiring victory as a mother was tough to beat.

"I'm not quite sure I could do it, having a child and then coming back on the tour," Henin said.

"I mean, it's brave to do it, to travel with a child, to deal with being a mum and a tennis player. I think it's not easy.

"So it's great what she's doing. I have a lot of respect for what she did because it's not easy, and she has been (playing at) an amazing level very quickly, beating Venus and Serena in the same tournament," Fox Sports quoted her, as saying. (ANI)
