Unfornately no. I went to Wimbledon 2001 and I got some autographs, but I just missed Justine.
BUT.....I did get Elena Dementieva, Lina Krasnoroutskaya, Anke Huber, Goran Ivanesevic and John McEnroe

It was about an 1 hour before Goran's final, and when I got his autograph, I told him good luck and he smiled and said thanks.

John McEnroe just asked my name, and signed my program:
'To Matthew, have a great time. John McEnroe'.

Elena D was down-hearted because when I got hers, she had just lost in the 3rd round to.......Anke Huber. Huber, needless to say, was delighted because of her win. Both of them though smiled and said 'thank you for your support'. (Which was COOL).
Elena even recognised me! ME!!!!! Only because I'd been sat behind her mother for the entire match!!!!!!! But still, SHE REMEMBERED ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (How cool is that, for your fave player to recognise you?!?!?!).

Lina K, though was my fave to look at up close, because she seemed to have a certain.......spark in her eyes that you don't see on TV. She also has a charming smile.

I'm planning on going to Wimbledon again this year, to get some more autographs, and maybe get my pic taken with some stars!!!!!!! Wouldn't THAT be cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I went to the Diamondgames in Antwerp to see the match between bedanova and Mauresmo we got in really early and justine was practicing. After her training she took all the time in the world to meet the fans who were watching and sign autographs. I just couldn't believe how sweet and friendly she is. she had a smile and a word for everyone.

She's been my favourit since two years now, but since then I like her even more

JUSTINE H-H: 39 WTA-titles and counting...!


Good luck to K-lina Sprem, Venus, Tati Golovin, Daniela, and Lena D

I saw Justine twice.

At the diamond games before Mauresmo vs Gubacsi, she was practising with Schnyder, Maleeva and Farina Elia. I saw her there. And at her final against Venus she was just next to me at the end!!

I saw Justine live at the Diamond Games.

* When Linda & I came in she was practising w/ her coach.
* Then we saw her match against Els Callens. She won pretty easily. After the match all her fans (including Linda & I) were waiting for her to come to us to sign autographs! But she ignored us! I was really dissappointed with her! She went to the other side to sign autographs & then left w/ some bodyguards! I guess they wanted her to leave soon (security rules )

At least Els shouted "sorry maar 'k moe direct weg" (sorry but I've got to leave) to us LOL Els is so sweet

In fact when I was next to her, it was when she was signing autographs after the final. We were only 3 peoples left and she didn't give us an autograph!!!!! because the doubles final had to become. But what is 3 autographs???? it took less than 1 miunute but no, she left without giving us our autograph, I find this unfair for us!!!! We were only three!!!!

Hmm I guess Justine doesn't like signing autographs then, Axel. I feel sorry for you.

I'm sure Kim would've signed your paper!

Yeah so do I. Kim likes signing autographs (as you could see after the Clijsters-Henin match in Melbourne) and she takes enough time for that. Justine seems to do because she's "obliged" to do it.
