Although Graf lost, the experience impressed Henin. In 1995, shortly after her mother's death, Henin met her coach Carlos Rodríguez who guided her career both before her retirement in 2008 and during her 2010 comeback.Their marriage is chronicled in the biography ‘Llyod and Llyod’.She again got married in 1988 to two-time Olympic downhill skier, Andy Mill. Her father is José Henin; her mother, Françoise Rosière, was a French and history teacher who died when Justine was 12 years old. Henin won seven Grand Slam singles titles; winning the French Open in 2003, 2005, 20, the US Open in 20 and the Australian Open in 2004. She also won a gold medal in the women's singles at the 2004 Olympic Games and won the year-ending WTA Tour Championships in 20.

On Monday, Chris Evert’s rep said “no comment” when asked whether the 62-year-old tennis player was tying the knot. “I was with Andy for 18 years,” the mother of three tells the latest issue of US Elle. When we were growing apart, I should have nailed it right then and there, and communicated, but I didn’t. You can’t wait until five years later, because then it might be too late.” Evert, who now runs a tennis academy in Florida and is single, admits that ending the whirlwind romance with her ex-husband’s friend left her so depressed that at times she could not get out of bed.Six-times US Open winner Evert was married to Norman, 56, for 18 months after she left Mill, but they divorced in December 2009.Following a conflict between Justine and her father over her tennis career and her relationship with Pierre-Yves Hardenne, Rodríguez soon became not only her trainer but in some ways a second father figure.
