Biografie Henin-Hardenne voorgesteld

Justine Henin-Hardenne is pas twintig jaar maar haar eerste biografie is al verschenen. In haar boek maakt Justine een eerste balans op.

Het boek werd geschreven door Patrick Haumont, een oud-journalist en ex-hoofdredacteur van 'La Libre Match' die gespecialiseerd was in tennis.

Haumont heeft het in "Justine Henin-Hardenne, le bonheur au bout du court" over de jeugd van de huidige nummer vier van de wereld. Hij komt terug op de moeilijke momenten in haar leven zoals de dood van haar moeder en beschrijft Justines mooiste tennisexploten.

Henin-Hardenne ging er mee akkoord om op die moeilijke periodes in haar leven terug te komen. "Ik het begin was ik een beetje bang dat ik nog te jong ben voor een biografie, maar ik heb al veel meegemaakt en met mijn huwelijk heb ik een belangrijke kaap genomen. Ik ben op een moment gekomen om een eerste balans op te maken. Ik hoop dat mensen die mijn boek lezen, zullen beseffen dat er altijd een manier is om je weg te vinden", legde Henin-Hardenne uit.

De auteur laat ook drie mensen aan het woord die in de tennisster haar leven een belangrijke rol spelen: haar eerste trainer Luc Bodart, haar huidige mentor Carlos Rodriguez en haar man Pierre-Yves Hardenne.

In het boek, uitgegeven door uitgeverij Luc Pire, staan voorwoorden van ex-tennissers John McEnroe en Nathalie Tauziat. Het ligt vanaf volgende week in de winkel en zal 13 euro kosten.

I've got it since wednesday and I love the book! I mean, I was almost in tears when she talked about her mother's last days...
It's an interesting book, I learned a lot about Pierre-Yves, now I think I understand more their relationship, and I feel more relaxed because I think she's now pretty happy and more "free", it looks like she's at the beginning of a wonderful life, tennistically and as a person! :bounce:

There are beautoful pics too, especially the one where she has lunch with Olivier Rochus and they were what, 8 ;)
