Henin-Noah à Forest-National
07 octobre 2003 - Paolo Leonardi

Justine Henin s'est qualifiée pour les quarts de finale à Filderstadt. Elle devra au moins atteindre la finale pour espérer devenir numéro un mondiale. Le 18 (septembre) (mistake from the journalist), la Namuroise affrontera... Yannick Noah à Forest-National.


Le tournoi de Filderstadt a bien démarré pour Justine Henin. Au deuxième tour (elle était exemptée du premier), la nº2 mondiale a disposé (en hésitant dans le final) de Conchita Martinez (6-0, 7-6). Si elle ne jouera son prochain match (soit son quart de finale) que vendredi, la Namuroise devra attendre avant de connaître le nom de son adversaire. Il s’agira soit de l’Italienne Silvia Farina (WTA 22), soit des Russes Elena Dementieva (8) ou Nadia Petrova (15), ces deux dernières devant encore s’affronter ce mercredi au premier tour.

Si la situation n’est pas encore tout à fait claire, on sait à présent que pour avoir une chance de devenir nº1 mondiale lundi, Henin doit au moins atteindre la finale dans la banlieue de Stuttgart. Mais le plus intéressant, avouons-le, serait de l’y voir affronter Kim Clijsters (qui jouera son deuxième tour jeudi contre Hantuchova). Dans ce cas, Henin devrait battre la Limbourgeoise pour monter sur la plus haute marche du podium, cette dernière restant nº1 en cas de victoire.

On a appris par ailleurs que Henin disputera le 18 décembre à Forest-National une exhibition pour le moins insolite qui la verra opposée à… Yannick Noah. Cet affrontement, qui s’inscrira dans le cadre d’une soirée baptisée « Proximus Diamond Tennis Night » organisée en l’honneur de la vainqueur de Roland Garros et de l’US Open, sera annoncé ce vendredi par les responsables du tournoi d’Anvers, organisateurs d’un événement qui ne manquera pas de faire grand bruit.

i thought she would play against a tennis "legend"??!!,,,

Noah is great( well, when he's not singing anyway ), but 1 GS win does not make someone a tennis "legend".

still, it promises to be a lot of fun!!!

that's for sure!!! About 2 years ago, he gave a concert at the AB ( Ancienne belgique ), everything seemed to be fine, great ambiance and stuff.......but that was not enough for Yannick, so he invited everybody to go out in the streets to sing and dance....and that's exactly what happened! Imagine 2000 people singing and dancing on the Anspach boulevard, in the heart of brussels, at midnight!!!

I would be surprised if he does not sing at Foret / Vorst national!

waw, first a battle between two little girls :yawn: :yawn:
and "the best tennis legend" :scratch: versus the best female player of the year 2003... I'd preferred McEnroe or Navratilova. But I guess they want to be sure that Justine wins easily ;)
AND I HAVE TO GIVE 50 EUROS!!!! ARE THEY INSANE :eek:

Normally he would have to do an eyesurgery or something.But when he heard that it was for Justine he postponed the surgery.He says that he's a big fan of hers and he wants to give his harmonica (or how you call it Englisch) in return for one of her rackets.
I guess he's an as devoted fan as we are.
