Justine vs. Yannick Noah!

Article in French from www.lesoir.be

I'll translate it later if I have more time

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Henin-Noah à Forest-National
07 octobre 2003 - Paolo Leonardi

Justine Henin s'est qualifiée pour les quarts de finale à Filderstadt. Elle devra au moins atteindre la finale pour espérer devenir numéro un mondiale. Le 18 (septembre) (mistake from the journalist), la Namuroise affrontera... Yannick Noah à Forest-National.


Le tournoi de Filderstadt a bien démarré pour Justine Henin. Au deuxième tour (elle était exemptée du premier), la nº2 mondiale a disposé (en hésitant dans le final) de Conchita Martinez (6-0, 7-6). Si elle ne jouera son prochain match (soit son quart de finale) que vendredi, la Namuroise devra attendre avant de connaître le nom de son adversaire. Il s’agira soit de l’Italienne Silvia Farina (WTA 22), soit des Russes Elena Dementieva (8) ou Nadia Petrova (15), ces deux dernières devant encore s’affronter ce mercredi au premier tour.

Si la situation n’est pas encore tout à fait claire, on sait à présent que pour avoir une chance de devenir nº1 mondiale lundi, Henin doit au moins atteindre la finale dans la banlieue de Stuttgart. Mais le plus intéressant, avouons-le, serait de l’y voir affronter Kim Clijsters (qui jouera son deuxième tour jeudi contre Hantuchova). Dans ce cas, Henin devrait battre la Limbourgeoise pour monter sur la plus haute marche du podium, cette dernière restant nº1 en cas de victoire.

On a appris par ailleurs que Henin disputera le 18 décembre à Forest-National une exhibition pour le moins insolite qui la verra opposée à… Yannick Noah. Cet affrontement, qui s’inscrira dans le cadre d’une soirée baptisée « Proximus Diamond Tennis Night » organisée en l’honneur de la vainqueur de Roland Garros et de l’US Open, sera annoncé ce vendredi par les responsables du tournoi d’Anvers, organisateurs d’un événement qui ne manquera pas de faire grand bruit.

i thought she would play against a tennis "legend"??!!,,,

Noah is great( well, when he's not singing anyway ), but 1 GS win does not make someone a tennis "legend".

still, it promises to be a lot of fun!!!

He was one of those underachieved. Yannick had great tennis skills, too bad he couldn't get more!

that's for sure!!! About 2 years ago, he gave a concert at the AB ( Ancienne belgique ), everything seemed to be fine, great ambiance and stuff.......but that was not enough for Yannick, so he invited everybody to go out in the streets to sing and dance....and that's exactly what happened! Imagine 2000 people singing and dancing on the Anspach boulevard, in the heart of brussels, at midnight!!!

I would be surprised if he does not sing at Foret / Vorst national!

waw, first a battle between two little girls
and "the best tennis legend" versus the best female player of the year 2003... I'd preferred McEnroe or Navratilova. But I guess they want to be sure that Justine wins easily
AND I HAVE TO GIVE 50 EUROS!!!! ARE THEY INSANE
