Henin is playing at Roland Garros for the first time since 2007, when she won the tournament for the fourth time.

Henin returned to the tour in January following a 20-month retirement, and while she's seeded only 22nd, she's considered one of the title favorites.

Henin extended her winning streak at Roland Garros to 23 matches and 39 consecutive sets. She hasn't lost a match at the French Open since 2004.

Her match had been suspended late Thursday at 6-3, 3-2 because of darkness.
