Is Justine the most humourless player in the tour?

I can't think of any other player who is more serious. Her interviews are as dry as a twig in a desert. Can you think of a more humourless player?

Ok. I don't know? Patty? I'll give you this one. Justine has been
getting a tad better; but it always comes off like a bad episode of a
Belgian Cop drama in that big scene where they drag some punk in and
yell at him/her..

No,Justine can't laugh..She doesn't have any fun,nor does she have a life.She's just one sick player who does nothing else but thinking,staying serious and training as hard as she can.
Her interviews are boring as hell,certainly the French ones...Really I can't believe how some people can actually support her.

Allez.

Aj!

It's difficult trying to be a stand up comic in a second language.

You said it,but she's making progress.Remember the IW-interview:"He's trying to give me a hard time" ---->whole room starts to laugh
Or after her semi in IW and the interview with pam Shriver afterwoods,they're were FFW the match and then Justine says:"I'm very fast on court"
She's making progression I tell you

Allez.

Q. You've been on Tour a few years now and have seen Kournikova's game. She's a person who has a great number of outside interests other than tennis. Do you suspect that maybe those outside interests are keeping her from achieving her best tennis on the Tour?

JUSTINE HENIN: I think I am here to play tennis, is the best important in my life. I think she's a really nice girl. She likes her look, and everybody likes her look. But I am not here to do cinema. I am here to play tennis and I think that's the best important.

Justine tries a joke out on the American media that Pat told her.

Her French ones are boring too? I would've thought at least those'd be humourous.

I know sometimes it's hard to make interviews funny when you're speaking another language. Justine's English is pretty good, but hopefully when she gets better and expands her vocab. her interviews'll be funnier.

Q. In the final, you'll get probably Venus, although Lindsay is hanging in there. You haven't beaten either one of them.

JUSTINE HENIN: I beat already Venus Williams, okay?

Q. I'm sorry.

JUSTINE HENIN: That's okay. This year in Berlin.
That was funny too!

Really. They are horrible. You should be happy that they don't
show them with English subtitles!

Don't know about humour, but she's certainly one of the most underrated looks-wise.

Obviously you don't know too many players nor Justine well enough. Me either, but how can you say she's the least humourous player on the tour? Her first language ain't English and most of her interivews (actually all of them that we can understand) are done in English. I can think of a whole lot of ppl who have similar personalities to hers. Not that I know her personality all too well.
