Justine's speech

Mostly, this question follows after a speech, so i 'll give in brief what Justine said, if anyone is interested

She first thanked the organisation and all the volunteers and ballboys and girls.

She thanked her husband and her coach for more than 10 years, Carlos. She said, I know you're too little too realise it yet, but manuel and matheo, you both give me so much, thank you!
She thanked family and friends and the crowd.

Ans in the end she thanked a special person who was in front of his TV and who couldn't be there. her hearts is with him, Denis*.


She will be back next year






* denis, could this be jean-denis Lejeune, the farther of the little girl Julie who was murdered by pedophile Dutroux?

Justine: feb. 5, 2007:

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

Merci, pigam.

She forgot to mention her friend Sveta! I bet she's mortified.

Justine Henin

A fighting spirit,
a tower of strength to be reckoned with!

Denis is probably one of the cancer-kids who couldn't make the trip to RG

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Jean-Denis Lejeune is the father of Julie Lejeune, abducted along with Mélissa Russo in Belgium on June 24, 1995, and imprisoned in Marc Dutroux's cellar. She was 8 years old at the time. She died, probably of starvation, some time between December 6, 1995 and March 20, 1996. Jean-Denis Lejeune was one of the foremost leaders of a massive protest march (the "White March") of 300,000 people on the capital, Brussels, on October 20, 1996, in which demands were made for reforms of Belgium's police and justice system. Jean-Denis Lejeune is the founder of Child Focus.

Since 2005 he has been working with Claude Lelièvre, the Commissioner for Children Rights of the French (i.e., French-speaking) Community of Belgium.

I'm not sure if she meant him, let this be clear.
It just that he is (was) a very close family friend of Justine's. see e.g. this article
http://www.usatoday.com/sports/tenni...7-08-henin.htm

Wow, thanks for that link, pigam. I had never heard about this man who's so important in Justine's life.

I thought I knew everything about Justine but this Denis bit got me totally puzzled.
I don't think she was talking about Jean-Denis Lejeune though, even though she knows him personally

Uhm, yeah, I don't think she meant him either. It would be a strange time to suddenly come and say that now. I think she referred to one of the little cancer patients.

Don't want to think about the whole Dutroux-thing. So horrible.

Justine Henin-Hardenne

Marat...?

Well I hope one of the reporters will ask her in her PC, and that she'll clear it up for us.

Hopefully Jusine may reveal the identity of Denis in one of her press interviews.

It is important never to forget the horrors of Marc Dutroux in order to ensure that lessons are learned and that depravity of this kind will never reoccur in the future.
