Nov-Dec updates on Juju

Yup, I'm very sorry to be away for so long making this blog dying...let's revive the heartbeats of this blog. Let me see what have I missed out...hmmm...seems like alot to blog!

Firstly I will blog on the earliest news which I have left of-Televie charity event which was held on 24 Nov in Club Justine Henin to help raise the funds to fight against cancer, they have raised in total 21,045€! (Videos and Photos after the news links).

Some news link related to the event, for English translations of the news article images, please go to and see Danielle's translations, dated around 24 Nov-27Nov. As for the rest, try to make do with google translations, sorry, my level of french is not competent enough to translate.
Here's a nice youtube video..can see the cute couple Juju and Benoit as well as the lively atmosphere of the place there, everyone eager to play a part in this meaningful event :)

And here's another video which is a news report of the event, again, showing Justine shaking the bell (If you can't view it here, go to

Tournoi de tennis à Limelette pour le Télévie
There are various sources for these images (I won't paste all of them, I will just post a few) I hereby thanks to all of them for taking such beautiful photos to share!:

Is this the registration counter?
Spot Justine and the number of cows present
Getting ready..any belgians can play a mini game-see how many celebrities you can spot out of these ppl?
They must be chatting something serious...look at the serious look of Ju
Ju:"Hmmm, yes I agree..." (closes her eyes)
Ju:"Hmmm.." (Opens her eyes) 
*Ok, I'll stop being lame here...

And below are the combination of the group photos (I won't caption all of them except for the 1st one..I'm running out of captions):
Yes, we can!

After the handsome and pretty adults, let's have some handsome and pretty kids too:
I liked how they are wearing the club T-shirts and caps!
Let's have a group photo!
All the sporty handsomes
I wish I was there to hear Justine's interview, although 100% I won't understand what she said in "Bonjour bonjour" but I will smile seeing her smile =)
Ju:"I wanna play with them too, but I also wanna enjoy watching the matches"
Guy:"So what would you choose?"
Ju:"Well....not sure of my elbow and my stamina, maybe next time I'll play, now I'll just watch some fun tennis!"
"Club Justine Henin" is one of the places which I wanted to go while I'm still breathing. So many indoor courts and what a size!
The participants getting ready for their matches and also a good photo to see the facilities of the club. That's a viewing panel on top there right? Like those in airports to view airplanes..
So nice to get her autograph! I also want...maybe in my dreams~
This smile! Ju should show it more often then there will be no need for power stations
Some awards ceremony? I saw trophies...
Joachim Gerard-Wheelchair Tennis Pro, looking good out there and lots of prizes!
A candid shot of Justine!
I wonder what are they looking at? Something amusing? 
Justine is looking younger and younger! But still can't hide her handsomeness :-P
I super love this one!!! That cheeky smile again!
I can imagine one day Justine doing this pose again with her own beautiful kids! Ju looks so blissful and peaceful here!
Still got that Tennis Queen Aura! I love her side view as well, very nice features! I shall call this "Justine's version of Mona Lisa's pose"

And who says only Mackayla Maroney is not impressed?

Our queen Justine is as well:
Oh no! Justine is Not Impressed! Run for your lives! 

Ok, that's the end of the Televie event news. See you next year! And now comes the news Carlo et Fils event which include this lovely photo of Justine and Benoit:
Benoit always looking so cheerful, he is just like a cute big pooh bear! (Means no offense to him..supposed to be a compliment) If they had said Lalie looking like him, then Lalie will be very cute! Although either looking like Mama or Papa she will confirm to be very cute too!

Here's a blog post about Justine's interview here:

And now, news of Justine's clarification of her "doping" (evil media!), which I believed Justine really hated and am as clean and pure as water PH 7.0:
An article which Danielle had translated here:
Justine Henin did not appreciate the words of Christophe Rochus towards her.
Doping: Justine Henin puts back Christophe Rochus to his place

On Friday, November 29th, 2013 " 
Those who make declarations without proof (about the doping), it hampers me a lot ", said Justine Henin on Friday in the Circle of Lorraine. Christophe Rochus, in particular, had made press certain suspicions on the performances of the other players.

Justine Henin was the guest of prestigious Circle of Lorraine, in Brussels, it Friday noon, to come to speak about the reconversion of the high-level sportsman in front of good hundred businessmen there. At the end of a brilliant and moving presentation, when came the hour of the questions / answers, the ex--n 1 world of tennis was called out on the doping in her sport and on the suspicions that make weigh some, of which Christophe Rochus, on the performances and the faculties of recovery of the other players, by means of statements or of pernicious insinuations. We remember that Auvelaisien, at the beginning of this year, a short time later to have retired, had emitted in particular doubts on Twizz Radio on the lightning return of Rafael Nadal after his wound in the knee and had wondered about the "disappearance" of Robin Soderling after the tournament of Bastad in 2011.

" Those who make statements without proof (about the doping), it hampers me a lot, answered Justine Henin. It is easier to criticize that to question himself, to see what we made or not made. There are athletes who train six at seven o'clock a day. Maybe that those who arrive at the top reach there because they work ten times more than the others … "

This reaction without ambiguity is not surprising on behalf of Henin. At the time of her tennis glory, Rochefortoise had, herself, was the victim of suspicions of doping, on behalf of the clan Clijsters, in 2003, having set of the muscular mass during a stay at the physical assistant Pat Etcheberry, and when she had brutally put an end to her career in 2008, a few weeks away before Roland Garros, Wimbledon and Games of Beijing before returning to the business less than two years later; we had whispered in the time when the WTA would have asked her to be held towards the circuit during several months after a positive control by guaranteeing her besides the most complete discretion. Charges, them too, without proof, which had allocated her to the time.

" I do not say that there is no doping in tennis - especially as there have been already positive cases - and I am for an increase of the controls, has still specified Justine Henin. But in this domain, it is necessary to pay attention on what we say. "

Those blind jealous haters who accused Justine of doping must not have seen how hard Justine worked to reach the top. Should force them to try her physical workouts and these sissy haters will definitely cry and surrender within minutes, let alone training for years after years. It's easy to spit shit when you haven't gone through the same phase as Justine, both physically and emotionally. Haters should just grow up and move on to Love more.

Ok, I shall stop talking about the classless haters and moving on next to more love love love, take a look at Justine's official facebook page:

On 1 December, she posted "@ Club Justine Henin pour une activité Justine For Kids au profit de l'ASBL "Nos enfants cardiaques"
"@Club Justine Henin Justine For Kids for an activity for the benefit of the association "Our heart children" in English
Nice to see Justine actively participating in charity activities!
Way to go, Justine!

On 10 Dec, she posted to have spent a weekend with the kids filled with emotions at Disney Land for JustineForKids foundation:
It's just like last time when Justine was still heavily pregnant with Lalie but that didn't stop her from accompanying the children to Disney Land and making wonderful memories for the children!

And on 14 Dec, she posted to have a Color Magic Night event for JustineForKids:
Isn't Justine adorable? Back to the old times~ ^o^

An overall summary is written on her website under the news section. You can choose to change the language of site:

Here's an additional video of Justine found on youtube (It's in French though):

Finally ended this pretty long post, my bad for dragging it for so long and updating it all at once. Let's hope to see more beautiful Justine and more activities of her. I still got quite a number of her off court videos and a couple of her matches which I haven't uploaded onto youtube or other video channels yet, sorry for the delay. Btw, Hep Taxi Justine Henin had been taken down by youtube...damn it!

Staff of Justine Henin Academy wishes you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

New Justine Henin Academy Video :)

Hi, there's a new video of the Justine Henin Academy uploaded about 2 days ago which I think is pretty interesting to share over here. The video talks about the nature of the academy, how they train their players and their philosophy and values.

You can even see Justine appearing in the video herself and speaking English with a heavier French accent now haha! 

But it's good, good to see how organized their programs are, allowing work and play in balance. It's not all about Tennis, there's entertainment, friends and....FOOD! Oops, sorry for the glutton piggy me. I love how they have video games, table soccer for them to relax and also providing school education for the players. 

For more info on the academy's programs and facilities, feel free to visit the website:

I look forward to the day when I travel to Belgium and visit her club, then I will take tons of photos and post it here. Ok, time to save $$$ now, travelling to Europe still needs $$$, time and some planning for me.

ADIDAS Benelux Clinic

Hello, long time no see, no smell, no hear! How's everyone doing lately? I know I haven't been actively updating this blog even though I'm still missing Justine a lot.

Here's the full photo album of the ADIDAS Benelux Clinic at Club Justine Henin, uploaded by Justine Henin Academy:

"The 25th october 2013 Adidas Benelux visit the Justine Henin Academyfor a awesome afternoon. The collaborators of Adidas Benelux was invited for a Tennis Clinic with Justine Henin."

I will post most of the photos but not all of them here, excited to see Ju holding on to a tennis racket and play again!!! Hahaha! (I'm getting lamer and lamer by secs, so beware of any lame captions)
Adidas big banner in Ju's club, a main sponsor and thank you for your support to Ju's projects!
If you can't sleep at night, try this lame solution: count the number of heads in this photo, finished? Repeat this process another 100 times. Still unable to sleep? Look at Ju's mesmerizing eyes in other photos of her, now dream.
Nice artistic decorations on the wall behind, just like Ju's tennis :)
I admire Ju's presentation composure, she looks so natural in giving speeches, like a boss! And I probably will stammer all the way until ppl feel like slapping me hard in the mouth hahaha (sorry for the violent desciption) 
This has become my new wallpaper, Ju's smile attacks! Btw, there's gonna be a flooding of tennis balls behind soon.
3 youngsters, Ju still looking youthful in this photo. Yeah, motherly youthfully mother..wait, what?
nice to see them playing tennis with focus
The physical training room I assume? Nice putting her 2004 Olympics poster up there, a very good motivation!
It's more than a gym, training all your muscles and flexibility!
I feel like going there and try to do all these, hope I won't find myself on the ground, looking at my dirty shoes to the ceiling.
The step on ball thingy looks fun but tough to balance?
Shuttle run?
What is she smiling about? Looking pleased ^_^
Another potential wallpaper spotted!
they are so lucky Ju is at the opposite side of the net!
I wanna play with Justine too but then I mostly excel in playing "air tennis"
Ju in action!!! Haha, don't know why, but I find her very cute in this photo
Her expression nv changes, that seriousness when the ball is coming in contact with her racket! Look how focused her eyes are, fixed onto the ball
Backhand!!! Slice? Dropshot? I don't care, it's a backhand!!! So long didn't get the chance to see her this fabulous backhand...Ah, Ju is enjoying playing, good good, nice to see her enjoying tennis that much
That looks a little Roland Garros trophy replica, just a little elongated, but still a nice trophy, even nicer if presented by Ju herself 

And because it's lunch time right now in my country, and I'm a little hungry, let me post these photos to make myself hungrier so that I will gobble up everything including the plates later:
The food that the restaurant in her club serves, looking delicious! 
I bet everyone enjoyed the event!
Oh no, here comes my stomach washing machine!!! 
Looking at them eating...did you hear it? "Gruuuuuuu...." That's the sound of the strong "detergent" acting up in my stomach washing machine...time for lunch! I'm stretching and ready for some mouth exercises!

On a side note, I really miss Justine a lot on court. I've recently watched some youtube clips of her wonderful single backhands and all the goosebumps were back again! Single backhanders are really a dying breed and even more to extinction for players like Justine :'-(
