Pirette is a verrrrrry emotional person, and he really has huge respect for Justine. He cancelled all his gigs during two weeks to watch evrysingle match of Justine.

I can tell he is very close to Justine!

on a side note, I heard form one commentator the Justine had reconciled with her dad already, does anyone knew if he was watching the final as part of Justine's entourage?

That guy has been quite emotional throughout the tournament. He's shed more tears than Pierre Yves and Carlos combined.

What a drama queen. Crying after every match Justine wins is just OVER-emotional. How would he react if he dropped his hat? :rolleyes:

Must we inject nasty digs at Justine's husband at every opportunity? Can somebody tell me who this friend of Justine's was, that evidently likes her so much her victory caused him to cry?

Francois Pirette, he's a famous stand-up comedian in Wallonia and has become a very close of the Henin-clan. He just respect Justine soooooooo much. He wrote this little part about her before RG and if you read it (it available in H²HQ) you really get the sence of respect he has for her. Also, about a month ago I found out that one of his children died of cancer, and I kinda think that it has to do with how emotional he is.

Here's the translated version of his little piece on Justine courtsey of Justineladivine. hope you don't mind me for posting it.

She’s a lime diamond, a water pearl, a paper cathedral. A giant sequoia strong as a poppy, a blotting-paper raft braving its way across the Atlantic, a crystal pickaxe chipping at granite.
If I hadn’t had the luck of already having a younger sister, I’d beg my parents to adopt her.
I could, I think, tell you about her without misrepresenting her, make you love her if you still had doubts you did.
But I won’t flout her modesty and won’t say anything which may impair the dignity of her silences, or go against her so often misunderstood choice of keeping aloof. Those so often misinterpreted silences which are but her own will to protect herself from risking yet another disappointment, yet another letdown.
What I want to tell you about her is that she has a life which has been broken all over, a heart covered with bandages, she has patched-up memories, enough pain for six lives, inconsolable moments of solitude, and she loves life with no hard feelings, no strings attached. She’s passionately Justine. I sometimes tell her she is like a character from a novel. One of these novels we indulge in thinking how good it would be if it could be true. Except that it can’t be. It’s just too much, too improbable… it must have been made up. And yet everything is true. On the day when Justine put her bag down in the hall of our house, it was altogether Pocahontas, Cinderella, Wonder Woman, Edith Piaf and Natalie Wood who walked into our lifes.
And ever since that time, we’ve just been wondering about the great joy and privilege of being in a position to accompany a living legend as she’s wending her way to an unbelievable destiny.
How about that destiny?
How could a little girl ever imagine becoming the most famous Belgian citizen in the last 175 years, without having to marry an heir to the throne that is? Being the one that made her country known for something else than a seedy criminal affair. The one that restored hope and pride to a whole generation. And some would dare blame her for moving away? Justine is the best example of our country’s inability to sincerely rejoice over her children’s success, of her embarrassing refusal to continue loving them unreservedly as they rise to the highest reaches, and most of all of her total lack of indulgence towards them at the first threat of weakness.
Are we in Belgium so prone to absolve the unworthy rather than forgive our heroes? Or have we just resigned ourselves to living in so dull a country that when one of us dazzles us with so many insolent achievements we can’t help finding them suspicious, or even despicable? For mercy’s sake let us not spit our jalousy on the flickering flames of fragile beacons such as Justine, Emilie, Amelie, Marie and all the others, for should they ever go out, our lives would suddenly grow very murky again.
Oh, I was about to forget. Justine is 22 years old. 22! How about us? Who were we? Where were we? What had we achieved… when we were 22?

:lol: I think Justine should marry Francois. He seems more poetic and just all-around a cooler guy than Pierre :P

Aww, I love that piece he wrote. I do wonder why Pierre isn't just a little jealous though - I think I would be if someone wrote something that lyrical about my spouse!

Why do a lot of posters "put down/slag off" Pierre Yves? What has he done to Justine? What is wrong in the relationship?

Does he make her happy? She looks very happy with him to me, so what is the problem? She loves him and he loves her - so why make fun of him and the relationship?

Could someone please explain it to me.

It's just the way of the tennis boards. :)

Pierre Yves is probably very good for Justine. He's in the unusual position of being a man supporting a powerful woman rather than the other way around. We aren't comfortable with a man supporting a woman. Some people think it's unmanly so they think he must be gay. It's just a way of denigrating a man who has stepped outside the norm and is apparently at ease with his role.

sometimes even Justine fans make a lil fun of him, but it's only tongue in cheek.
Real fans know PY is a very special person for Justine and probably in general. He indeed 'took a step aside" to support Justine, but he has also said that he wants to continue having his 'own life'. There has been a lot written on this subject. I'm sure they both love eachother very much, especially after >Ju's difficult period due to that virus.
if you want more info: head to H²HQ ;)

Pierre is great. If the genders were reversed no-one would despise him as some here do. You never see any of the ATP players' girlfriends/wives who support them get this sort of flak and they do much less behind the scenes stuff than Pierre.
