View Full Version : Adjusted to the Pistolesi and Henin-Hardenne yet???

Well i am used to hearing and saying both...

Now its sounds weird saying Anna Smashnova, and saying just Justine Henin seems odd, so i guess im adjusted...

How about you???

Hooked on phonics really works eh?

I still say Smashnova because I prefer it.

I don't really say Henin or Henin-Hardenne ever (I didn't before though) - I just said Justine. Unless players have a cool last name (or if I don't really like them ;) ), they're on a first name basis with me :p - or probably I'm on a first name basis with them ;)

But just for TTT purposes, I still call her Henin because it's shorter than Henin-Hardenne. Outside of that, I don't really use either, so I can't really adjust either way.

I still say Smashnova because that is the quintessential tennis name.

I usually just call Ms. Henin-Hardenne... Justine, Juju, or Henin.

Pistolesi yeah because her name is totally different, but not like Justine. i mean she still has Henin in there so i guess people just drop the Hardenne. i would just say Jutine, or add the Henin when talking about her to people, but if i were to wrtie a report or something, then u go for the full name

Henin-Hardenne goes hand in hand together pretty well!

i had to think a while to think of Anna's old name, thats how used to it i am lol...

i call justine justine... don't bother with surnames, me and her are on first name terms i'm sure.

I have adjusted to Pistolesi, even though Smashnova is better (Cervanova and KuzNETsova just aint the same).

As for Justine I still call her Henin.

I still call her Henin because i prefer it. And its faster to type. I dont really talk about Anna much, but I'd call her Pistolesi i suppose.
