Synopsis

One of the greatest women tennis players of all time - twice winner of the US open, most recently in 2007, winner of the Australian Open in 2004 and four-times winner and current holder of the French Open - Justine Henin's dazzling array of shots, combined with her immense personal courage, have earned her enormous respect among current players and former champions alike. Justine's success is all the more remarkable considering that off-court she has had to weather a series of family tragedies, a debilitating virus, the breakdown of her marriage and a seven-year feud with her father and brothers. Now, with family bridges rebuilt, her tennis is reaching new heights,. Always thrilling to watch, Justine's breathtaking backhand, described by John McEnroe and Slam title as 'the best in the world - man or woman' is rivalled by a sensational forehand and razor-sharp volleying. Author Mark Ryan, who has good relations with the Henin family knows the inside story of Justine's rise to the top - and what it almost cost her - better than any other sports journalist. His account is compelling, sensitive and a must for all tennis-lovers.

Mark Ryan has reported on sport for a variety of newspapers since 1986, including reporting on tennis. Since first meeting Jose, Justine's father, in 1990s, he has had numerous meetings with the Henin family, who have offered much help in putting together this book.
