[Video] Justine Henin blikt terug: "Kim en Serena tilden mij naar een hoger niveau"

Justine Henin

Justine Henin won Roland Garros maar liefst vier keer in haar rijkgevulde carrière. In een reportage van het grandslamtoernooi zelf, blikt de Belgische terug op haar meest memorabele herinneringen uit Parijs.

“Tijdens de finale tussen Steffi Graf en Monica Seles in 1992, zei ik tegen mijn mama dat ik op een dag Roland Garros zou winnen”, vertelt Henin. “Ik was toen 10 jaar. In 2003, wanneer ik mijn eerste titel won in Parijs, was mijn mama er niet meer. Voor mij was die overwinning een manier om aan mijn mama te zeggen dat ik mijn droom had gerealiseerd en ze gerust kon zijn dat het goed met me ging.”

De Belgische was daarna nog drie keer de beste in Parijs. Ze won Roland Garros nog in 2005, 2006 en een laatste keer in 2007. Ook pakte ze één keer de titel op de Australian Open (Australië) en won ze twee keer de US Open (Verenigde Staten).

Bekijk hieronder de reportage waarin Henin herinneringen ophaalt over Roland Garros en o.a. praat over haar rivaliteit met Kim Clijsters en Serena Williams:
