She also has won a WTA Tour Championships singles title and the singles gold medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics. Tennis experts cite her mental toughness, the completeness and variety of her game, her footspeed and footwork, and her one-handed backhand (which John McEnroe has described as the best single-handed backhand in the men's or women's game) as the principal reasons for her success.[1][2] In tennis, a singles player or doubles team that wins all four Grand Slam titles in the same year is said to have achieved the Grand Slam or a Calendar Year Grand Slam. ...

Playing style

Henin has a very aggressive, yet highly versatile, all-court playing style and can hit all the fundamental shots to an extremely high level of technical proficiency. Henin plays with a rare combination of power and finesse that allows for her success on all surfaces. Consequently, Henin's playing style is one of the most admired in tennis: John McEnroe has described Henin's tennis as "Federertennis", frequently describing Henin as 'the Roger Federer of women's tennis' (BBC commentaries and studio interviews, Wimbledon 2005, 2006, 2007). At Roland Garros 2007, Martina Navratilova said that "Henin's offence is just phenomenal... it's sort of like we've got 'the female Federer', or maybe the guys have 'the male Justine Henin', because she is just head and shoulders above everyone else right now" (interview with Barbara Schett, europsort, 7th June 2007).


Henin's single-handed backhand, now rare in both men's and women's tennis, is one of the most powerful and accurate in the game (Henin frequently records higher speeds off her single-handed backhand than many of leading players' DHB speeds). Henin can hit both 'flat', topspin and slice variation off this wing and can strike winners from any part of the court. Her backhand can also be also disguised, surprising her opponents with dropshots. Her slice backhand is one of the best in the world. However, Henin's forehand remains her most dangerous weapon, and the stroke that she normally uses to dictate the play of a match. Along with Serena Williams, Venus Williams and Ana Ivanovic, Henin consistently records the most 'winner heavy' stats of all the top 20 ranked players, the majority of her winners typically being forehand groundstroke winners. In each of her last three matches at the US Open, Henin hit substantially more winners than each of her opponents: quarter-final versus Serena Williams, 30 - 17; semi-final versus Venus Williams 29 - 26; final versus Svetlana Kuznetsova, 25 - 11.

Despite her relatively small size, Henin has an extremely powerful serve, which has been measured at a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph) [2005 Charleston]. Her average first serve speed in the 2007 US Open semi-final [first set] was 172 km/h (107 mph) - the same as her opponent, Venus Williams (nine inches taller), who holds the world record for the fastest serve in a main draw Tour (or Grand Slam) event. Henin's serve frequently features in the top 10 of the 'Women's Serve Speed Leaders' list, produced at every Grand Slam event throughout the year.


Henin's footwork, balance, and court coverage are exceptional - most notably on clay - and she is adept at changing from a defensive style to an aggressive one. Henin has always had good to exceptional volleying skills, and has used serve-and-volley play with more frequency in recent seasons.


Family life

Justine Henin was born on June 1, 1982. Her father is José Henin; her mother, Françoise Rosière, was a French and history teacher who died when Justine was 12 years old. She has two brothers (David and Thomas), and a sister (Sarah). She also had an elder sister who was killed in a car accident before Justine was born. When Justine was two, her family moved to a house in Rochefort, situated next to the local tennis club, where she played tennis for the first time. At age six, Henin joined Tennis Club Ciney where her coaches discovered her talent immediately. She outclassed the other children in training sessions and was notably ambitious. Her mother routinely took the young Henin across the border to France to watch the French Open.[3] Henin saw the 1992 final involving her idol Steffi Graf and Monica Seles. Although Graf lost, the experience impressed Henin, who apparently told her mother, "One day I will play here and I will win." is the 152nd day of the year (153rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

In 1995, shortly after her mother’s death, Henin met her coach Carlos Rodriguez who has guided her career ever since. Following a conflict with her father over her tennis career and her relationship with Pierre-Yves Hardenne, Rodriguez soon became not only her trainer but in some ways a second father figure.


On November 16, 2002, Henin married Pierre-Yves in the Château de Lavaux-Sainte-Anne.[4][5] However, on January 4, 2007, Henin withdrew from the upcoming tournaments in Australia, including the Australian Open, due to personal problems. Various news agencies reported that she intended to divorce. She has since confirmed on her official website that she has separated from her husband[6][7] and she also resumed her maiden name, Justine Henin, instead of Justine Henin-Hardenne. [8] Her divorce and the serious car accident of her eldest brother helped to clear the path for Justine to make contact again with her close family (which she communicated very openly to the local press). During the 2007 French Open, her brothers and sister attended her matches for the first time in her professional career. is the 320th day of the year (321st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Grand Slam breakthrough in 2003

In 2003, Henin won her first Grand Slam tournament, the French Open, defeating her compatriot Kim Clijsters in the final 6-0, 6-4. She reached the final after defeating top ranked Serena Williams in three sets, recovering from a 2-4 deficit in the third set. At one point during the semi-final, Henin raised her hand during her opponent's service, and Williams faulted. Williams then asked the umpire for another first serve but the fault was upheld. The incident has often been cited by the media (mainly in the U.S.A), rightly or wrongly, as an example of her alleged lack of sportsmanship.

As of March 22, 2004, Henin had accumulated the highest point total (7626) in the history of the WTA rankings. Because the awarding of quality points was eliminated in 2006, this point total may never be exceeded.

At the start of the 2004 clay court season, Henin's health was adversely affected by infection with a strain of cytomegalovirus and an immune system problem.

In September 2004, she failed to defend her U.S. Open title, losing to Nadia Petrova in the fourth round. This defeat caused her to lose the number one ranking, which she had held for 45 non-consecutive weeks. She then withdrew from the 10 remaining tournaments of the year in an effort to recover her health and improve her fitness. Her plan to rejoin the tour at the beginning of 2005 was delayed when she fractured her kneecap in a December 2004 training session.

Notable matches

  • 2003 Australian Open fourth round: defeated Lindsay Davenport 7-5, 5-7, 9-7. In a match lasting more than three hours, Henin overcame a 4-1 final set deficit, high temperatures, and muscle cramps to defeat Davenport for the first time in her career.[10][11]
  • 2003 U.S. Open semifinal: defeated Jennifer Capriati 4-6, 7-5, 7-6(4). Capriati was two points away from victory eleven times in a match that stretched to midnight. After her victory, Henin went to the hospital for rehydration treatment. The next day, she defeated fellow Belgian Kim Clijsters for the title.[12][13]
  • 2004 Athens Olympics semifinal: defeated Anastasia Myskina 7-5, 5-7, 8-6. After months of layoff due to a virus, Henin competed in the Olympics. Henin rallied from 5-1 down in the third set to defeat reigning French Open champion Myskina. She went on to capture the gold medal.[14][15]
  • 2005 French Open fourth round: defeated Svetlana Kuznetsova 7-6(6), 4-6, 7-5. Henin saved two match points to earn a quarterfinal spot. In winning the tournament, she became only the second woman to win the French Open after saving a match point. (Myskina accomplished the feat a year before, also against Kuznetsova.)[16]
  • 2005 Wimbledon first round: lost to Eleni Daniilidou 7-6 (8), 2-6, 7-5. It was the first time that a reigning French Open champion failed to win a match at Wimbledon.[17][18]
  • 2006 Australian Open final: lost to Amélie Mauresmo 6-1, 2-0. Henin retired from the match with stomach pain. This was only the fourth Grand Slam women's singles final that ended by retirement since 1900 and the first in the open era. Henin stated afterwards that she feared possible injury had she continued to play. She was widely criticized by tennis commentators and writers for not finishing the match.[19][20]
  • 2006 Wimbledon final: lost to Amélie Mauresmo 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. The final round was notable for featuring two "finesse" players who used their all-court games, a notable break from the previous years that featured a succession of power baseliners claiming the title. At almost every point throughout the match, both players approached the net to serve and volley. Tipped as the tournament favorite, Henin won the first set over Mauresmo. But Mauresmo recovered, winning the next two sets and keeping her composure to win her second Grand Slam title and deny the Belgian a career Grand Slam.[21][22][23]
  • 2007 U.S. Open semifinal: defeated Venus Williams 7-6 (2), 6-4. Henin led a break but could not hold it and then finally held on and take the set by a tiebreak. In the second set, Henin was able to establish the score at 7-6 (4), 3-0. Williams would not give up and leveled the match, and eventually had three break points on Henin's service. Williams could not convert and lost the game, and then was broken yet again to allow Henin to be up a set and a break at 5-3. Despite serving for the match, Henin was broken by Williams. Williams then was broken and Henin reached the final, to go on and win the title. [24]
  • 2007 Masters, third group game defeated Marion Bartoli 6-0, 6-0. Henin was already sure of proceeding to the semi-finals but wanted revenge for her loss at Wimbledon earlier that year. An unprepared Bartoli, who did not know she had to replace Serena Williams until a few hours before the match, was cruelly humiliated.[25]
