I really wonder if this is true, or if it is just the Justine N1 connection. It would be an interesting twist.

Re: Interesting Articles/News about Justine

Here's the rumour, as reported on tennis.com:

"Meanwhile, for those of you who haven't heard, it looks like Carlos Rodriguez, most recently the coach-for-life of the recently retired (but still French Open defending champion), Justine Henin, is probably going to coach Anna Chakvetadze.

"The two worked out together in Belgium recently and Rodriguez agreed in principle, although he insisted that he won't travel. This means that Chakvetadze will have to set up shop in Belgium (she currently lives in Moscow) to get the benefit of his full-service coaching (A hat tip for this update goes to my friend Bart Lagae of the Belgian daily, De Standaard).

Hmmm, interesting. Thanks for the update. I didn't think Carlos was keen on doing the traveling again, but I really didn't know if he would coach a WTA player again. Looks like he might very well. Well, Anna could use his insight and calm nature to settle her down. She has a great game, but the mental aspect needs some work. Carlos would be perfect for her.

Thanks again.

Justine would be a tough act to follow for Anna. Good luck.


Not the tallest or the most powerful but the bravest and the feistiest - she is poetry in motion and at her best she is the best

Adieu Justine. There'll never be another one like you

Re: Interesting Articles/News about Justine

OMGoooshh! I miss Justine!!

I was watching Serena and Kanepi and they showed commercials of Wimby;there She was, playing a slice with her lips drawn tightly together, all in white with a cap and little ponytail.

Aaaaaahh. I MISS HER!!!

Oh boy, it is hard. I know I whine every now and then, but I can't help it!.

She has taught me a very expensive lesson to learn, and that is to hold off on getting too attached to sporting figures etc.

yes, the hungarian commentator already mentioned this during the second weak of RG though she was not 100% sure.

I know vejh. It is only some of us are doing it quietly. A matter of personal style I guess. But we feel the same anyways.

Yes, that is what my beloved Dr House would conclude. But I am not sure he is right in this. You miss out on living life to the full if you avoid being attached to people sport personalities or other. Pain is a part of life. Get used to it. (I am saying this not only after Ju shocking us, but after I actually watched my favorite race car driver off himself during a race in live TV coverage. I would never give the exhilaration of being his or Justine's fan for anything even if I could rid of the aftermath. But as they come in one package...).
Sorry about pretending to be the community philosopher. I usually do not do it.

Re: Interesting Articles/News about Justine

Same here. I miss Justine so much. Her departure hits me hard. I only watched about 10 minutes of Woman's game in Wimby. It's so boring and poor comparing to man's game. I know I wouldn't attach to anyone. So at least I can save some time and emotion. But her departure also changes a bit of my mindset. I am more into "enjoy the moment" kind of mind now. Which is good I guess.

Re: Interesting Articles/News about Justine

Me too; I'm all for enjoying the moment and forgetting the attachment to players.

I'm also working hard on developing my tennis game and mental fortitude.lol. I'll be the next Justine

Re: Interesting Articles/News about Justine

At the moment I'm enjoying being relaxed about tennis! Normally I'd be totally stressed during Wimbledon. Even though there'll never be another player like Justine for me, I'll still enjoy following tennis and I'll still support other players.

Oh, and after yesterday's performance it looks like Chakvetadze really needs Carlos's help!

Re: Interesting Articles/News about Justine

^lucky you.lol

M still bitter. Although I totally enjoy watching men's tennis. On the other hand I am slightly bitter watching the WTA tour. And I am much happier when certain players don't win GS **cackles**

Re: Interesting Articles/News about Justine

I can't watch women's game any more cause I can't stop thinking what if Justine were playing and how she would have run down those shots. And I know she would have won.



I still love tennis and I think it is the most beautiful game in the world. So I just watch men's matches now. Richard Gasquet's BH certainly resembles Justine's.

I just watch now with mild curiosity. Although, the last two afternoons, TTC has shown Eastbourne '06 and '07 finals, so I have been watching great grass court tennis with my favorite player. And the tension is eased knowing that Justine wins each time, so didn't have to sweat the third sets

But yes, mens tennis is the only one I will really be watching until something changes in the womens game that I now see little of interest in.

Wish I had Tenis Channel. Would love to see the 07 final against Amelie!

Re: Interesting Articles/News about Justine

From Sports Illustrated:

Jon Wertheim
INSIDE TENNIS
Fifty parting shots from Wimbledon (one of the fifty shots):

  • "Hello! My name is Justine Henin. Some of you might remember me from such hits as The Little Ingenue that Could, Damn the Torpedoes: the French Open story, 2005-07. I made a decision to retire from tennis a few weeks back! See that bruise on my backside? It's from where I've been kicking myself for having passed up a chance to have won my first Wimbledon!"


For a change, I agree with Wertheim.
