In her search for a new manager, Justine Henin-Hardenne hired a familiar face — her husband Pierre-Yves Hardenne. The fourth-ranked Belgian announced today she has hired her husband to take over as her new manager.

Though she resides among the stars in the upper reaches of the WTA Tour top 10, Henin-Hardenne is a low-key personality devoid of any pretense. She married hometown boyfriend Pierre-Yves Hardenne in a short, simple ceremony conducted at the town hall and church of St. Isidore across the street from the couple's apartment in the village of Marloie, Belgium last November.

Pierre-Yves Hardenne said the partnership with his wife provides an economic benefit.

"As everyone will understand, it's certainly more economical," Hardenne said jokingly in announcing his new management position.

SMC had served as Henin-Hardenne's management company for the past three years.
