The 27-year-old retired in May 2008 but on Tuesday announced her comeback just over a week after fellow Belgian Kim Clijsters capped her retirement U-turn with a second US Open title.
Henin won seven grand slam titles and had previously insisted her decision to retire was final.
“A new future is ahead and I won’t go back on this decision,” she said last year.
However, she announced on live television on Tuesday evening that she plans to play two exhibition tournaments this year to prepare for a competitive return in 2010.
