Thumbs up Juju openly tells her story about her tears for Carlos and hug with Kim

Henin: "Kim hugged me genuinly"

The year 2006 was very emotional for Justine Henin-Hardenne. A few weeks after the season, the #1 of the world speaks openly about the lesser period with her coach, her relationship with Kim, and her life in Monaco.

"I still don't know how I succeeded in winning the Masters," Henin says. Winning in Madrid gave me more satisfaction than my victory in Roland Garros this year."

Before the Masters, Justine got injured in the Fed Cup final. After that, things got a little worse with her coach Carlos Rodriguez for a while.

"We haven't seen each other for almost a month. That had never happened before. Carlos kept staying updated, but stayed in the background. Ten minutes before the semi final against Sharapova in Madrid, we talked everything through."

"I shared everything that was bothering me. I was so emotional, I had to cry. I felt like I had disappointed Carlos. When I came on court after that, I felt freed."

"I don't know when I'll retire"

By winning the Masters, Justine has filled one of the only few gaps in her palmares, which gave her much satisfaction.

"But I don't know when I'll retire. That could be about 4 or 5 years. In any case, then and only then when I want to do something else," said Justine.

I am 24 years old, but I feel like I've lived several lives already. People make an adult of me, someone I'm still not.

"Kim hugged me genuinly"

Justine also talks in Le Soir about her relationship with Kim. "The most important thing is we respect each other a great lot. It will be very strange when Kim won't take part of the tour anymore. We've experienced a lot - things I will never forget."

"In Madrid, Kim hugged me after my victory against Sharapova. I really felt the genuineness."

"A big competition will disappear when Kim's left the tour, but other rivals will keep me sharp," Justine added.

"I like living in Monaco"

Justine left Belgium for Monaco, and doesn't seem planning to return soon. "But in march next year, we will move here," she says.

"There are too much renovations in this building and also I think it's too expensive. I can afford it, but I think I pay too much for what I get in this block."

"I like living in Monaco. The first few months were heavy, but now I live here like everyone. The inhibitions are gone."

Nothing "happened" between Carlos and Justine.

Carlos went home after Justine injured herself at the Fed Cup Finals and called weekly to get updates on Justine's progression (about one month). He can't coach an injured player.

Justine was missing his presence during his absence while she was recovering and they discussed it before the YEC semi's.

Re: Juju openly tells her story about her tears for Carlos and hug with Kim

Carlos was just a little angry that Justine played the doubles final in Fed Cup. She was already injured before the doubles match, but insisted on playing. And carlos wasnt too happy about that since it would worse then injury which really did. Justine was out for sometime due to the strain.

Anyway, Justine should be given credit for giving it all for the Fed Cup.

I also think they every little misunderstanding between Kim and Justine is blown out of proportion by the media.
KIm and Justine are good friends. And just like any friends, they have their fair share of misunderstanding.

Hingis Fan since 1997
