Re: 4 Belgians in the top 50!

I'm particularly pleased for Vliegen but well done, boys!

They even managed to get in Wertheim's ad in, ad out? Great stuff!
Now all we need is our Belgian tv stations (and the Flemish ones in particular ) to pay a bit of attention to them and show some of their matches.

Go Kristof! I knew from the first time I saw him play he was going to be good. Not top, obviously, but I think he has a decent career ahead of him.

Re: 4 Belgians in the top 50!

This is quite shocking! And their ladies are top class too!
Finally something us Dutch people can envy you for! Oh, and Tom Boonen of course!

Seriously, I root for my Belgian friends all the time! Dick Norman is on the brink of the top 100 as well!

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Kristof is only going to get better. He's having his best year yet.

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

Re: 4 Belgians in the top 50!

Yay! I love all the Belgian boys. I think it's just coincidental but it's nice to see their success Vliegen's got a nice game, and it's interesting to see him do well on clay; i think he can have successes on many other surfaces as well

That's also very impressive but the US have some more inhabitants than Belgium with 10 million.

We will have to wait for some attention for the male players till the Belgian media stop licking the pussies of Kim and Justine.

Also, it's time for a Belgian ATP tournament.

But Belgian TV stations already show A LOT of tennis, don't they?!! I've always been jealous of belgian people for being able to watch so many great tennis on public television... Especially, Slams (even Roland-Garros!) are really better covered than on French public TV

Maybe it's just french-speaking channels and not flemish, though, i don't know...

Anyway, congrats to the belgian boys!
