Justine Henin was in no rush to get married and in no need for media attention. About three and a half years after starting dating and about two years after having their child, daughter named Lalie, the queen of one-handed backhand and her partner Benoit Bertuzzo tied the knot in a private ceremony in Corsica. According to Belgian media, the wedding took place back in October 2014! Precisely, on October 25th.
This is the seven-time Grand Slam champion’s second marriage. The Belgian divorced Pierre-Yves Hardenne in 2007, after four and a half years of marriage, and the ex congratulated her now, saying he’s happy for her.
Here are the 32-year-old Henin’s thoughts on love and marriage (this is my translation from French):
I’ve never said that I would never remarry! It’s not that because it didn’t work once that we don’t have the right on the second chance. I can’t imagine not being married to the father of my little girl. Maybe I am old-fashioned, but I believe in marriage.
Congratulations, Justine! This is a wonderful addition to our WTA Players and their Love Partners page.
