I liked Justine from the first time I saw her play! That was in the fed-cup of 1999 (or 1998, I'm not sure) When Justine was only like 17 years old. She had to play experienced Dutch players like Hopmans and Oremans and she just COMPLETELY TRASHED them !!
She also has at the time a certain 'cool' (wich she lost a bit in the first years of her pro-career, but wich she has refound nowadays, as we all know
) That's when I thought: this is my new fave!! Then, when domi Monami stopped tennis I began to fully 'concentrate' on Justine ... et voilà ...

"I hung on to tennis. I have done so for the past 20 years. It is something that is in me, it is me."
