I think we should number our reasons, let's see how quickly we get it up! I made a quick count of the previous, I think 79. So:

80) I love the kiss she blew to the whole world after winning IW
81) the way she talks each time about going home to her family
82) that one point in the Berlin match 2001 against Venus that made me fall in love
83) her ace on second serve against Lindsay AO '03
84) the way she made me forcing out a scream at certain times for hours and hours after the RG semi '03
85) her eyes that search her team in the box at happy and difficult times during matches
86) she used the adidas-slogan in an interview! and totally appropriate too!
87) the emotions her game and personaility make me feel, good or bad
88) her gorgeous fans
89) her honesty by retracting her comment on Davenport
90) the way she runs after impossible balls on sheer willpower
91) that backhand down the line
92) that backhand crosscourt
93) her dropshots, especially the reaction-ones she picks up from the floor and gently puts over the net pure on instinct
94) the lobs she pulled out of her net in the IW-final
95) she and P-Y in the pilotsuits
96) her outfit last year
97) the miraculous improvement she made on her seve
98) the graciousness she held during doping-accusations
99) the kinda quiet 'allez' you hear in the back of your ear and never know if she said it or not

100) for being Justine


that's for starters.

This is kind of fun. My turn.


Reason #1002 (counting down backwards.)

# The 1-handed backhand is sublime.
# Watching Justine play tennis is akin to the highest of drug highs!
# I love her very dry, droll sense of humour and wit.
# I adore "I don't give a F*uk what you think, I'm doing it my way!"
# She's so subversive that everything about her seems to go over
most people's head.
# I love her lack of the artificial and the superficial.
# She's not a suck up or kiss-a**.
# I love the casual and laid-back off court attitude.
# Oddly enough Justine has one of the most perfect delicate small noses
in women's tennis.
# I get a big kick of how modern Juju and PY are in their marriage.
He cooks, he cleans, he decorates! ;)
# The French accent and the fractured English. For sure.
# ALLEZ. The battle roar that ignites the engine!
# The displaced university student/rock star clothes and hair.
# the earnest,sincere respect she has for the international supporters.
# The never say die spirit.
# Her on court swagger is exciting and hilarious at the same time.
# Her love of children is charming.
# mental courage to go forth in life after all the bittersweet moments.
# Incredible work ethic and determination to attain all her goals.
# I love her utter disregard for an extravagant and shallow lifestyle.
# Her depth of character and moral problems that make her an engima.
# I love the vulnerable side of her character/personality. It's touching.
# The quirky personality
# She's a little girlish, she's a little boyish.
# And for giving me so much tennis enjoyment; the good, the bad,
the chokes and the celebrations.
# The over the top emotional on her knee's Grand Slam reactions
are beautiful. (I'm getting sappier, and sappier here. :lol: )
# Yeah. The blown "Kiss" at certain matches are a joy to behold.
It's just too sweet for words. (people are swooning! :lol: )

Hey! That was a rather weak, tepid, lame-ass excuse you say?.
Ok... here we go.




Reason #1003- She's very photogenic and always has the most
interesting poses or pics.

2. the way she throws her racket in the air after a really great win
3. her discrete-ness
4. her: who cares? adidute from time to time ;)
5. her 'bring it on' attitude ( :hearts: it! )
6. her nice official site
7. her loyalness to Belgium :o
8. her modesty (oh yes!)
9. her BLACK puppy eyes
10. her respect. Although several say she isn't nice to the ballkids, e.g., she is one of the few players to thank them after every tournament


(11. her nice photo shootings.

Go to tennis and head to videos. It's on the 3rd page of the vid gallery.
You'll see the pic of the BoSS on the bottom of the videos section.

Funny, how they use 1970's TV Cop/police music?
The opening scene of BOSS/PY/CARLOS
reminds of the ending of shows like STARSKY AND HUTCH

Of course, my pronounciation was all wrong. I sad it English-wise, whereas, of course, it had to be "'base' Ó la franšaise" :p ;). hmmm, of topic :scratch ;)

you're right, she probably has her own little network. Because Mobistar is for caling you friends, which she doesn't have and Proximus is sponsor of B Verbeeck, whom she 'doesn't like'. She probably just uses a walkie-talkie to boss around PY ;)

Personally I love her...

1) Because she┤s as "tall" as me :D

2) Because she was the reason I started to watch this sport again :kiss:

3) Because even my parents who only know Steffi and no one else acknowledge her in every possible way :eek:

4) Because of her backhand (art gets redefined) :worship:

5) Because she seems to be soo thoughtful and wise :angel:

6) Because she keeps my dream alive which is to finally get to see her playing live :hearts:

7) Because I got to walk on Arthur Ashe Court lately and all I could think of was what a great feeling it must have been to win in such a big stadium and to be called wrong in front of like 20000 people... :lol:

8) Because no matter how often you re-watch her matches, it┤s still interesting :bigclap:

9) Because she never gives up :armed:

10) Because...well, just because she┤s Justine;)


Seems like I haven┤t seen her play for ages now... :sad:
