I think it will be Justine Ardenne. The commentator on Belgian TV said Justine Henin-Ardenne but they keep saying Dominique Monami-Van Roost as well even though she was just Dominique Van Roost in the rankings.

We don't do that in Belgium I thought...

Well it's nothing official, it's just the way she wants to be called on the WTA tour. So in the future it will be "Game Mrs. Ardenne". ;)

It's not really a surprise I think, knowing how Justine feels about her father....

Yes but in English an A is not pronounced the same way as in French so I added the H to make it sound like the French pronunciation.

Yes I saw it written as Ardenne and Hardenne so I wonder what's correct lol. Not that it would make a difference for the pronunciation anyway.

:p@Dahveed.

I don't think she'll take just Hardenne.

I hope she'll pick Henin. But Henin-Hardenne wouldn't be bad either .... But I hope just Henin.

Nothing is sure, untill it's official for sure. She has a whole winter to ponder about that.

Maybe Justine For Sure???

Henin-Hardenne is ugly too, even more than just Hardenne I think.

Ardenne is a school in Jamaica.

Hurley
Nov 13th, 2002, 09:02 PM
I don't know which I like less...just his name :mad: or something hyphenated :fiery:

I'd almost rather have just Ardenne or Hardenne or whatever the hell it is :rolleyes:

But why can't she just stay "Justine Henin"? :D

It will always be Justine Henin for me.

I hope shows her feministic side and refuses to use his name. Even if hers reminds her of her father.

Maybe her mothers name: Justine Rosiere ???
Or of her grandmother: Justine Renard ??? As sly as a fox ...
Or Ragina Falange (like Phoebe's fake name in Friends ;) )

Here's an "official" page that shows that her name is just Henin: http://home.pi.be/lambermont-joris/ancetres/dat130.htm#36

Hi everyone,
I'd just like to say that even though I personally chose NOT to change my name when I got married, I don't think we should say that Justine is necessarily not a liberated woman just because she chooses to change her name. It's a very personal choice and people have very different reasons for what they decide.
Now, if he starts bossing her around or giving interviews on her behalf, let's be worried!! LOL.

A pity because Henin is a very established name...oh well, Ardenne isnt a bad name, I just hope she doesnt hyphenate it.

And arent we getting Anna Pistolesi (Smashnova) next year too?

Ardenne! Hum... any relation with the Ardennes where the battle of the Bulge took place at the end of 1944?

I heard that she doesn't speak to him at all. They have had quite a sad time as a family, Justine's mother died when she was young and Justine had to help raise her brothers. I heard that that and other things led to a breakdown between Justine and her father. That's all I know.

I think once someone has made a name for themselves it seems a shame to change it. But it's up to Justine and Anna S.

This is what the Sanex WTA site says in it's year end Top 10 summary:

And the news is all good for Justine, who will become Mrs Henin-Hardenne later this month, when she marries fiancé Pierre-Yves in Belgium.

I think Justine Henin-Hardenne is a good name. Maybe it's a bit difficult to think her Henin-Hardenne instead for Henin but anyway..
