I don't think they are girlfriends anymore. They had quite a dramatic breakup a year ago when Anja Andersen started dating another FCK player Maren Baumbach behind Mette Melgaards back according to the press. Maren Baumbach was frozen out of the club and haven't played since, but yet Anja still manged to continue as coach.
I don't know if Anja Andersen is still dating Maren Baumbach, but I haven't heard that she is back with Melgaard.
There was an article in a Danish tabloid that said Anja Andersen and Melgaard was back together. But AFAIK Melgaard denied that was true when the article came out.
I don't think Anja is dating Baumbach either, as far as I've heard Baumbach will be going back to germany next season.

Jump to 1:38 to see her play.
As you can see she's very aggressive and likes to run out from the 6m to meet the back quite far out in the court.
She has often been described as a terrier when she plays defence. Wiki describes a terrier small, wiry, very active and fearless dogs, so that's probably a good comparison to the way she plays defence.
Btw. Mette Melgaard actually turns 30 years old today, so happy birthday.
Here's a short portrait article of her two days ago because of her 30th birthday today: http://www.sn.dk/Stregspiller-fylder-30 ... ikel/64068
Thanks alot for those links! Great! Melgaard is bloody awsome, amazing how much it meant when she got back on the NT - it was a huge change from the one day to the other
And I think she's better than Tonje Larsen, or at least just as good, but let's not argue over that. Also, when Melgaard plays she'll throw herself over every ball, a real fighter - there's some clips of her playing and one where she throws herself after the ball here too:
And yes, happy birthday Mette
