Kim and Lleyton cross paths
By staff writers and wires

FORMER grand slam lovebirds Kim Clijsters and Lleyton Hewitt have spoken publicly for the first time about their shock break-up last year.

The sporting duo, who called off their wedding in October, are appearing at the Pacific Life Open Tournament in Indian Wells, California this week - the first time they have crossed paths since the split.

Clijsters, now dating a Belgian underwear model, said yesterday she has no regrets about dumping the Aussie tennis ace.

"I made the right decision and I'm happy," Clijsters said. "I believe that if you stay positive, everything will turn out positive for both sides.

"That's the most important thing at the end of the day, that you are both happy. I think that will happen for both of us."

The 21-year-old Belgian ended her nine-month engagement to Hewitt a couple of weeks after suffering a recurrence of a wrist injury at the Belgian Open and being told she may never play tennis again.

It was a difficult time emotionally as the couple had been together for five years but she says she has now recovered.

"It's the past. I've learned so much out of those five years and it's an experience that everyone should have," Clijsters said after beating Australian Nicole Pratt 6-2 6-1 in the first round of the tournament.

"For a few weeks it was very tough but my family was there for me. Having that stability really helped me."

For Hewitt, focusing on tennis helped him pull through the difficult time.

"I came through a lot of things with everything going on off the court and played some of best tennis I have ever played," he said.

Hewitt is now engaged to Home & Awaystar Bec Cartwright and says he is happy with how things turned out.

"I feel comfortable within myself. The end of last year was a tough situation mentally for me. One of the reasons why I hold my performance at the Masters Cup in Houston last year in such high regard is that is was mentally tough as I have ever been."

Asked if it will be awkward to see Clijsters at the tournament, Hewitt said, "I don't think so. It is something I am going to have to go through. Of course it won't be like seeing any other player.

"But we both have big careers to look forward to. There is nothing I can do about it anyway. There is no bad blood or feelings.

"I haven't spoken to her for awhile but we will probably chat here."

Clijsters and Hewitt met at the Australian Open when Kim's sister Elke asked her to get Hewitt's autograph and they got engaged after a romantic boat trip around Sydney Harbour.

Clijsters reached No.1 in August 2003 without winning a major title, having lost in the finals of four grand slams.

Hewitt proposed to 19-year-old Cartwright in January, three months after the split with Clijsters.


"With Bec it is great the way things have turned out,"
Hewitt said. "Everything has panned out. It is good to not talk tennis all the time. She didn't know anything about tennis before I met her."

Re: Indian Wells 2005

Nice quotes from both sides. I really hope they can be pleasant to each other, as it will likely be a load off both their minds.

Thanks, Picture Goddess

Re: Indian Wells 2005

I saw Kim and Lleyton today. Not together, but pretty much at the same time. I was watching Lleyton at a practice court and was talking to a friend who was urging me to look out at the grassy area at all the amazing stars gathered there. And Kim walked by.

She was on the court behind Lleyton's.

It's all in my blog with everything else.

Lleyton looked great btw. Shirtless and on a court alone even though everyone else was doubling and tripling up.

According to the latest report I've read, Lleyton IS mentioned as a participant as is Schrichaphan. Good for them!

Haha! I must be, I suppose.
I just leave short posts here and there from time to time, but I didn't even notice how many times I had posted.
Thank you for reminding me.

What about you, Roberta? Only 8 times since last December so far??
You should turn on your computer more often!!
It's great to be able to share your thoughts and read others'
since we all love tennis.
In US, there isn't as much coverage of tennis as there should be,
so this board has helped me out a lot!

Your English skills are better than a lot of people who speak it as their first language

Who else was there - who was LL practising with and who was watching him?
