If you know me well, you know that I love tennis. I love watching it and playing it . Although I won’t be able to watch as much of the US Open as I want, I am extremely excited about Km Clijsters ’s results.
She has won her first games very easily even though she is just back after taking 2 years off, and she is now going to play …. in round 3. Ok, ok … some will say that I used to cheer for Belgian Justine Henin and did not care as much when it came to Kim. But that was a long time ago, when French-speaking Wallonia had a player in the game. Tonight my heart is Flemish (really, it should be , since I will be staying in the Belgian Flanders fo 10 days, starting tonight).
Well, Belgians are not easy to understand but for sure sport is a field where they seem to reconciliate (especially when they win).
And I have 2 reasons to cheer for Flemish Belgium tonight. Kim will play against Belgian Kristen Flipkens ! The latter is not as well known, even though she recently made the news for posing naked in Menzo magazine. Anyway … no stress for me tonight : there will be a Belgian winner on the court!
And for some fun and funny tennis ….
