Justine Henin
Justine Henin
was born in Liège . Her father is José Henin; her mother, Françoise Rosière, was a French and history teacher who died when Justine was 12 years old. She has two brothers (David and Thomas) and a sister (Sarah).

When Justine was two, her family moved to a house in Rochefort , situated next to the local tennis club, where she played tennis for the first time.

Henin's mother routinely took the young Henin across the border to France
to watch the French Open. Henin saw the 1992 final involving her idol Steffi Graf
Steffi Graf
and Monica Seles
Monica Seles
. Although Graf lost, the experience impressed Henin. Since then, Henin has idolised Graf as her role model.

In 1995, shortly after her mother's death, Henin met her coach Carlos Rodríguez who guided her career both before her retirement in 2008 and during her 2010 comeback. Following a conflict between Justine and her father over her tennis career and her relationship with Pierre-Yves Hardenne, Rodríguez soon became not only her trainer but in some ways a second father figure.

On 16 November 2002, Henin married Hardenne in the Château de Lavaux-Sainte-Anne , adopting the name Justine Henin-Hardenne. On 4 January 2007, Henin withdrew from forthcoming tournaments in Australia, including the Australian Open, due to personal issues. Henin confirmed three weeks later that she had officially separated from her husband. The same year, she reverted to using the name Justine Henin.

Since March 2011, Henin has been in a relationship with Benoît Bertuzzo, a Belgian cameraman, and secretly married him in March 2015. On 12 September 2012, Henin announced that she was pregnant, giving birth to a girl named Lalie on 20 March 2013. On 3 May 2017 she gave birth to a second child, a son named Victor.



Henin, known as "Juju" to many of her fans, was coached by Carlos Rodríguez of Argentina
. In 1997, she won the junior girls' singles title at the French Open. Early in her senior career, she regularly reached the late rounds of international competitions and won five International Tennis Federation tournaments by the end of 1998.

She began her professional career on the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) tour in May 1999 as a wild card entry in the Belgian Open clay tournament at Antwerp
and became only the fifth player to win her debut WTA Tour event. She also won her hometown event, the Liege Challenger, in July 2000.

Henin established herself as a major competitor in 2001, consequently reaching the women's singles semifinals of the French Open
French Open
and then upset the reigning Australian Open and French Open

champion Jennifer Capriati in the semifinals of Wimbledon , losing to defending champion Venus Williams

in three sets in the final. By the end of the year, Henin was ranked seventh in singles, with three titles to her name. Also that year, she reached the French Open
French Open
women's doubles semifinals with Elena Tatarkova and helped Belgium
win the 2001 Fed Cup
Fed Cup

In 2002, she reached four WTA finals, winning two of them, and finished the year ranked World No. 5. Her German Open victory, her first win at a Tier I tournament , was noteworthy as she beat Jennifer Capriati in a semifinal and Serena Williams

in the final, the then number two and number five ranked players, respectively.

in the semifinals of the Medibank International in Sydney. In the fourth round of the Australian Open in Melbourne, Henin defeated Lindsay Davenport 7–5, 5–7, 9–7.

In January, Henin returned to competitive tennis at the tournament in Sydney , a tune-up for the Australian Open . She was seeded fifth and played former World No. 1 (and newly returned to competitive tennis) Martina Hingis in a much hyped first round match. Henin won 6–3, 6–3.

At the Australian Open, Henin defeated top-ranked Lindsay Davenport and fourth ranked Maria Sharapova
Maria Sharapova
in three-set matches to set up a final against third ranked Amélie Mauresmo . While trailing 6–1, 2–0, Henin retired from the match, citing intense stomach pain caused by over-use of anti-inflammatories for a persistent shoulder injury. Henin stated afterwards that she feared possible injury had she continued to play. Henin was criticized by the press because she had stated after her semifinal win against Sharapova that she was at the "peak of her fitness" and was playing the "best tennis of her life". This was only the fourth Grand Slam women's singles final to end by retirement since 1900 and the first in the open era .

Henin captured her second title of the year at a Tier II event in Dubai defeating Sharapova 7–5, 6–2. This was her third Dubai title, having won previously in 2003 and 2004. At Tier I Pacific Life Open in Indian Wells, California , Henin lost in the semifinals to fourth-seeded Elena Dementieva

in a Fed Cup
Fed Cup
quarterfinal. She beat fifth ranked Nadia Petrova 6–7, 6–4, 6–3, and ninth ranked Elena Dementieva
Elena Dementieva
6–2, 6–0. Petrova had come into the tie with two consecutive clay court tournament victories and a 10-match clay court winning streak, while Dementieva had defeated Henin in their last meeting in Indian Wells and defeated second ranked Belgian compatriot Kim Clijsters
Kim Clijsters
on the first day of the tie. Three weeks later, Henin played the Tier I Qatar Telecom German Open , defeating Mauresmo in a semifinal 6–1, 6–2 before losing to Petrova in a three-set final.

At the French Open, Henin defeated second seeded Clijsters in the semifinals 6–3, 6–2. She then defeated Kuznetsova in the final to win her third French Open
French Open
singles title in four years. Henin captured the title without losing a set and became the first French Open champion to defend her title successfully since Steffi Graf
Steffi Graf
in 1996.

At the Eastbourne
grass court tournament just before Wimbledon , Henin defeated Anastasia Myskina
Anastasia Myskina
in the final in three sets.

Henin was the third seed going into Wimbledon and advanced to her third consecutive Grand Slam final without losing a set. She defeated Clijsters (who was seeded second) in a semifinal 6–4, 7–6(4) but lost the final to Mauresmo. The final featured two finesse players who used their all-court games, a break from recent years that featured a succession of power baseliners claiming the title. At almost every point throughout the match, both players approached the net to volley. Tipped as the tournament favorite, Henin won the first set. But Mauresmo recovered to win the next two sets and her second Grand Slam singles title and deny the Belgian a career Grand Slam. This was the only Wimbledon final of the decade that did not involve Venus Williams and/or Serena Williams
Serena Williams

Henin withdrew from Tier I events in San Diego and Montreal because of injury but played the tournament in New Haven, Connecticut . There, she defeated Kuznetsova and Davenport en route to the title. It was her 28th WTA tour title. She returned to the World No. 2 ranking and crossed over US$12 million in career prize money.

At the US Open , Maria Sharapova
Maria Sharapova
defeated Henin in the final after Henin had defeated Lindsey Davenport in the quarterfinals and Jelena Janković in the semifinals 4–6, 6–4, 6–0. Henin became the first woman since Hingis in 1997 to reach the finals of all four Grand Slam singles tournaments in a calendar year.

Henin won both of her singles matches during the Fed Cup
Fed Cup
final against Italy in Charleroi
, Belgium. However, Henin retired from the deciding doubles match because of a knee injury while she and her partner Kirsten Flipkens were trailing 3–6, 6–2, 2–0, giving Italy the championship.

Henin guaranteed her year-end World No. 1 ranking by reaching the final of the Sony Ericsson Championships , defeating Maria Sharapova in the semifinals 6–2, 7–6(5). Henin then defeated Mauresmo and won the tournament for the first time in her career.

Henin was the first player since Hingis in 2000 to win the WTA Tour Championships and end the year as the top-ranked player. Henin was the first woman to win at least one Grand Slam singles title in four consecutive years since Steffi Graf
Steffi Graf
from 1993 through 1996. Her prize money earnings for the year totaled $4,204,810.

Kim Clijsters
, Serena Williams and Jelena Janković
Jelena Janković
. Henin has been accused of feigning injuries to distract her opponents when she was behind in tennis matches. Her retirement in the second set of the 2006 Australian Open final against Amélie Mauresmo was heavily criticized.


At the 2007 French Open
French Open
, Martina Navratilova
Martina Navratilova
said that "Henin's offense is just phenomenal ... it's sort of like we've got 'the female Federer ', or maybe the guys have 'the male Justine Henin', because she is just head and shoulders above everyone else right now." Henin's footwork, balance, and court coverage—and she is adept at changing from a defensive style to an aggressive one. Compared to the rest of her game, Henin's serve was rather inconsistent. Her tendency to take risks on her second serve could sometimes result in a high number of double faults. When she first came onto the tour, Henin used a pinpoint stance (most common amongst the WTA) for serving, but later retooled her serve to use a platform stance, which is most common amongst male players. Nonetheless, despite her relatively small size, Henin was capable of producing powerful first serves, her fastest one being clocked at 196 km/h (122 mph) at the 2005 Family Circle Cup . Henin's single-handed backhand was the most powerful and accurate in the game. She could hit her backhand flat, with heavy topspin, or slice . Her backhand could also be used to surprise her opponents with drop shots, breaking up the pattern of a groundstroke rally. Henin's forehand was generally regarded as her most dangerous weapon, and the stroke that she normally used to dictate the play of a match. It was underrated as most only spoke of her backhand, but particularly in her dominant years of 2003 and 2007 she would dominate the tone of matches with her huge and versatile forehand. Like her serve, her forehand was something retooled during her career and took inspiration from Andre Agassi
Andre Agassi
's forehand.

A notable aspect of Henin's playing style was the completeness of her game – the variety and versatility she had. Her style was often compared to that of Roger Federer
Roger Federer
and to 5-time Grand Slam winner Martina Hingis as well. 4-time Grand Slam winner Kim Clijsters commented "Growing up together, she's always been the more touchy player. She has good hands ... she has those quick hands." Former world No. 1 Andy Roddick
Andy Roddick
praised Henin and Martina Hingis 's racket skills, saying "She has probably the best racket skills of any female player I’ve seen, maybe her and Justine." Hingis herself also similarly said "Players were better educated . Now it's sheer power. You kind of miss the players like myself or Justine Henin."


Henin had always been considered one of the better volleyers on tour, but soon established herself as one of the best in the modern era. 2 time US Open Champion Tracy Austin commented "At the net she's quite comfortable displaying excellent technique. She knows where to position herself – a contrast to many other players who get up to the net and look like a deer in headlights." Renowned tennis coach Nick Bollettieri included Henin as one of the few female tennis players he regarded as being a successful volleyer and an adept serve (F) finalist; (SF) semifinalist; (QF) quarterfinalist; (#R) rounds 4, 3, 2, 1; (RR) round-robin stage; (Q#) qualification round; (A) absent; (NH) not held.
