Sport and Technology: Justine Henin-Hardenne Website #1 In Sports

http://www.sportandtechnology.com/features/0414.html

Feature: Female tennis star has best individual website - October 2006

According to new ArkSports research, tennis player Justine Henin-Hardenne is ranked number one in an audit of the official websites of the 100 leading sports individuals globally. Henin-Hardenne beat both fellow tennis player Andy Roddick and golfing great Tiger Woods into joint second place for best individual website.

The websites were ranked by ArkSports following the scoring of certain criteria such as Content, Personality Input Factor (PIF), Style and Commercial elements.

Sportspeople’s websites were studied from 75 sports globally - from soccer through to chess and powerboating.

Although many major sports stars have lots of unofficial websites, several top sports individuals such as Sachin Tendulkar, Asafa Powell, Annika Sorenstam and Thierry Henry surprisingly do not have official websites.

As well as determining which sports stars had the best websites, the research also concluded that:

· Sportspeople who compete in individual sports have better websites than those who compete in team sports.

· Tennis players’ websites are the best websites followed by individuals who participate in Motor Sport and Basketball.

· USA supplies the top nationality in terms of best individual websites.

· Tiger Woods is deemed to have the best overall content.

· Alonso and Roddick rank top for commercial activities (even though all profits from Roddick's commercial activities go to charity)

· The most stylish site belongs to Jeremy Bloom (Freestyle skiing and American Football).

· Top PIF was awarded to Spanish Basketball Player Pau Gasol.

Top Ten Sports Websites – Individuals


Rank Name URL Country Sport Score

1 Justine Henin-Hardenne www.henin-hardenne.be Belgium Tennis 113

9 Roger Federer www.rogerfederer.com Switzerland Tennis 82

Why I have the feeling that Swami_Majorie and Justine Fan contributed 2/3 of the 113 score?

Please, if it were up to those two, Juju'd be the only one with a passing grade

She does have a great site, though - from what I've seen, it's got solid content, and it's remarkably gimcrack-free.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

I rarely go to players official site with the exception of Justine and Maria's. It does seem that Team Henin-Hardenne does communicate to their fans, media, etc. a lot using the site. The statistics portion is quite amazing and it does keep up-to-date news about the sport of tennis in general.

I'm just glad that it was an official players tennis site which was recognized as being the best, instead of the golf people or the basketball folks.
