Awwwwwww

AND I am so proud of Lleyton that he has the good taste to love Kim.

A lot of guys his age would just be all over the models and actresses and just running wild........... Poo comes to mind. But Lleyton is so grounded. I just can't see why people can't look at him and see his goodness.

second that

It is very dissappointing - but in a way I think that it's best to lose to the best player in the world. If she won her first slam against a lesser player people would always remember that.
Today *dodgy line calls aside* Ezel was probably the better player. When Kim wins I want her to beat the best players not just get lucky with a draw. I want her to come out and beat a fully fit Ezel and my goodness I will take great pleasure in watching that happen. It will happen one day.

Yeah. It's got to be hard for him to see. He more than anyone else knows how she feels inside because he's been there. He's probably do anything he could to make her not have to go through it.

And it was so sweet when you could see he was so nervous he was jumping out of his skin that he turned to Connor and patiently talked to him. :)

I don't think Justine was the better player. She was in the first set for sure.

But she wasn't playing well the last two sets, and that is why even though Kim was still a break down in the third, I believed that Kim had a chance to win it. It was very very even in the last two sets.

Yeah. Justine quickly called the ball out. That probably influenced the umpire. But I don't blame Justine for that. Lots of players see things wrong in the heat of the battle. It was up to the umpire to keep a clear head at an important point.

But, when you are playing the number one, you've got to BEAT them. It's easier for the number one to win than it is to beat them.

There was a shot of him wiping his eyes. And then when they cut to him in the speech he had tears dripping down his face..

Angele
01-31-2004, 04:26 AM
As much as I hate Ezel, I don't think we can blame her directly for that line call. Maybe she did influence the call but players try and do that all the time. And it was close to maybe Justine saw it out. But that's besides the point. The line judge, who was right there, called it in. The umpire has no businnes overruling that unless it was clearly out which obviously it wasn't.

Murkofan
01-31-2004, 04:27 AM
Call me biased, but I'm not ready to believe Ezel actually saw the ball as long. If anybody would pull some underhanded shit to win a match, God knows it would be her.

The crowd were not happy :rolleyes: The thing is even if the umpire though it was out she couldn't have been certain so surely it would have been best to replay the point.

Ah well there's no point keeping on about it - they're not going to change it now :o

I agree we can't blame Justine. She's certainly not the only player to indicate an opinion on a call.

this hurts Justine in the end too (though not as much as Kim of course, lol!) I'm sure she would want to earn her third slam without controversy.

absolutely! that little boy is so cute and adorable! she'll bounce back after this...considering she never thought she'll get to play after that injury and then get to the final...that says something about her...she really fought and wants to win this aussie open since australia is her 2nd fave country...she didn't want to disappoint the aussies!
again, like she said...this is just a game of tennis, there are still more important things in life...like planning a wedding! and the honeymoon!

i really wish that someone will post pics of the match especially lleyton crying...

well...off i go it 12AM in Chicago...and it FREEZING COLD OUTSIDE!!!

goodnight guys..i'll check back again tomorrow!

Speech:

*I would like to congratulate Ezel for being the better player in the end. Well done!
*Although I lost, I want to thank a whole lot of people. 2 1/2 weeks ago, I wasn' t even sure I would be able to participate. So I would like to thank my physio, the physio's of the WTA. Thanks so much, they have been threating me almost 24 hours a day.
-I would like to thank my coach Marc, he's a great support and we've known each other for soo long, thank you.

(Then she turns around the mike, because she doens't want to be with her back to her box) Everybody laughing of course.

*Then I would like to thank my mom, for being here these two weeks, frances, thanks for your help (Frances is a friend of Els, who accompanies her a lot), the guy from Fila and I would also like to thank Lleyton's parents. And of course thank YOU for all the supoport you gave me! (huge cheer!:angel: )
-You are probably the most professional crowd I've have ever played in fromt of (laughing sheepishly from the crowd!;):p) No, no, I mean, you know like, you know your sports and that's why I'm so proud I will be marrying an Aussie!:angel::hearts:

Hi everyone, i just wanted to introduce myself, i'm nathalie from belgium. i've been a lurker here for 3 years now but i was too shy to post. i'm a huge huge fan of both kim and lleyton, i think that they're the sweatest couple on earth. I just wanted to say that even if kim lost today, i'm so so proud of her she really fought tonight. She's the best in my hart and even if she never wins a gran slam she'll always be the best for me. hopefully she'll win a gran slam one day before she retires
Hi angele, i love all your gooberish comments about kim and lleyton, it's always entertaining.
That's all i wanted to say. i probably won't post anymore, sorry for my bad english.

:wavey: Don't be afrâid to post more, Nathalie!

I just found a heartwarming open letter in our paper from Marc Herremans::angel: Made me feel completely warm inside.

Kim, the example

Eddy Merkx, Fabio Casartelli, Thierry Boutsen, Ayrton Senna...These are only a couple of names from our big sportsarchive. They are also names, each with their own history, their own emotions. Win or lose, happiness or sadness: it's always a thin line to walk on

Miklos Feher gave the deciding pass to victory in the match Guimaraes-Benfica. A couple of minutes later, he fell on the floor with his eyes open and lost life. Benfica won the game but lost a player and a friend. There are few sportstars who realise life is just like that. That (un)happiness is just hiding in a dark corner.

After my accident, I got to know this 18 year old girl. She was very young indeed, but already old enough to realise that being a topsporer, is just about nothing more than winning or losing. Last night, she played the finals of the AO, she's won or she's lost. But one thing is already clear: whatever she did, winning or losing, a couple of minutes after the match, she's back the smiling, lovely and sincere girl, blessed with the joy of life and extremely happy to play the game she loves the most. And all of that together in a mix with a pleasant life off the cour

If she reacts the same way, whether winning or losing, it' s not a lack of mentality, whatever some people say or write. This is just the realisation she has that both happiness and sadness are to find in real life and not in a match.

Dear Kim, thank you sooo much for being the example you are to me and for soooooo many other people!

Greets, Marc.

Welcome Nathalie :kiss: I'm Cilla! Post here more often :D

I'd just like to say that Kim is the most classy, graceful, dignified and beautiful woman. Kim may have lost again, but she has more class and poise than Ezel will ever have. It's obvioulsy a huge disappointment that Kim as lost her 4th GS, especially to Ezel. But despite the loss I went to bed with the biggest smile on my face after the warmest post match speech I have ever seen :hearts:

I'm glad Kim showed some fight and guts, because it looked like Ezel was going to win 6-3, 6-2. And, to fight from 4-0 down in the 3rd set was admirable, as she could've easily been bagelled. She just faltered still at the crucial moments. Those 2 quite frankly shockers of double faults on those game points to level the match at 4 all in the 3rd I think finished Kim off. Ezel took the bp chances better and Kim should've made more inroads on Ezel's serve as she didn't serve that great. That ump had no business to overrule on that call, but Kim shouldn't have played it so close to the line.

Anyway big disappointment, but I'm proud of her :D

Edit: Massive :hug: for y'all and for Lleyts :hug: The Lleyts and Connor show was so sweet :angel: Classic when Kim said the Aussie crowd were the most proffesional. You could hear the crowd sniggering and thinking "erm, what" ;)

I watched all of the match last night on the french-language sports channel. TSN's coverage was a half hour delayed.

Kim has everything to be proud of, and I think she took a big step forward. You could see all her nerves and "freezing", but she fought through them and never gave up. After the first set, I expected a repeat of the previous finals, but Kim stepped it up and put the pressure right back on Henin-Hardenne.:worship:

Brutal calls, especially the overrule and, nobody mentions this one, but the one in the first set giving JHH the first break was terrible as well.:o

I too think it's very positive for next time. I agree with your point about her return games. JHH's serve was not firing at all for most of the match, and Kim could have been a lot more agressive, especially with her great return.

I'd also like to see Marc and Kim work on her overhead, because it is not nearly in the class of her other shots. She lost a few points simply because JHH looped the ball high. She needs to put those away on a regular basis.

Anyway, painful to watch, but, not as much as the other all-Belgian finals. This one was suspenseful to the end. Justine's coach is pretty grating, but a lot of good coaches are assholes so fair enough...

Indeed, several times she had 0-30 on JHH serve, but didn't do enough with her returns as you say. She needs to gain a bit more consistency on the forehand side too, still breaks down too much under pressure.

Yes, the overheads were really poor, it's as if she had too much time...and the drop shots have declined quite badly :eek: I haven't heard anything of JHH coach or her, I changed the channel as soon as Kim finished her speech.

I know. I can't help but analyze, even though sometimes it may be better just to leave it alone.

Yeah, I agree about the drop shots too. It used to be a good shot for her. It's hard to drop shot on rebound ace, I would think...all that bounce.

I think I'm prejudiced against Carlos Rodriguez from last year, and the post RG trash-talk re. Venus and Serena. He generally seems to help keep the various feuds burning, but he obviously knows how to motivate his player.

Re. smugness...it's okay. There's not a nice vibe at all between the two belgians, and it makes for a pretty tense atmosphere.

Lleyton's off to Adelaide for Davis Cup, and Kim to Europe for the Gaz de France. They certainly don't lead idle lives.

Hmm re the drop shots, it's hard to work out why it's not one of her best shots anymore :confused: The disguise just isn't there anymore. But, another positive is that Kim has been coming to the net more in this tournamnent and has done very well imo. She didn't fare so well in the final, but she has to keep trying :)

I saw the headlines of a lot of articles about his trash talking post RG. Seems that JHH/Rodriguez are a match made in heaven Someone in a caption thread once likened him to a 'dirty hobo' and I'm inclined to agree :o

Blimey, can't believe DC is starting up again already :eek: Hopefully Sky Sports will have coverage of this tie, just like last year :) That's a new event in Kim's schedule (indoors right?) We get covergae of that on Eurosport, so it'll be nice to see how Kim responds after her well earned rest :)

She was playing a college basketball star suspected of murdering some guy for putting explicit photos of her on the internet.:o

You could tell she just really wanted to look at the camera, but had been directed not to. If that makes any sense...

Good-morning. I couldn't stay away from the net this morning!

Back home, Mum has taped that match for me ( :) Thanks Mum! ), but thankyou everyone who posted information about what was done/said by Kim after the match :kiss: I can't wait too actaully see her give her post-match speech! (I'll probably cry!)

I am so proud of Kim and her efforts. Like she said too, two and a half weeks ago she didn't even know if she'd be playing, let alone competing in another Grand Slam final, so even without having seen the match I know she did a fantastic job. And maybe she didn't beat Justine this time, but she is definitely getting closer :yeah: :worship:

I have just been watching the post-match interviews from Kim and Justine on the AO website. God, Justine didn't look like she just won the thing! You could at least smile Justine!

Q. Is Wimbledon now your next target? It's the only one that's missing from the pack.

JUSTINE HENIN-HARDENNE: It's gonna be another goal, for sure...I want to win for sure the all Grand Slams. :rolleyes:

But she's trying to be nice too http://www.click-smilies.de/sammlung0903/wuerg/vomit-smiley-007.gif

JUSTINE HENIN-HARDENNE: That was a tough match, very hard, especially the emotions. There's always a winner. You know, that's bad in sports.

Those two answers condratict each other a bit! Really Ezel, don't bother!

Kim looked really quite amazing for someone who had just gone through what she had :worship:

Q. The public out there has obviously adopted you as one of our own. Would you like to adopt them one day and play under the Aussie flag?

KIM CLIJSTERS: I don't know...I'll never say "never" but I don't think I'll be playing under the Australian flag. I don't really plan to have a very long career because one day I wouldn't mind having a family as well.

( :angel: Seems to be bringing this topic up a lot lately )

Q. We've got the technology these days to be able to look at those particular points. Would you be an advocate of having a second umpire to adjudicate on the really close ones?

KIM CLIJSTERS: Well, maybe. You know, that's what they do in the cricket.

:lol: Oh, she knows her cricket well....wonder where she got that influence from :p (She's proably spent half the Aussie summer with cricket on the TV in the background :p )

Ok, so there are some of my post-match thoughts. I am anxious to hear more of a full story on her ankle. Hopefully after she gets it looked at in Belgium she'll tell us something in her diary, coz I'm still very worried about it.

I just wanted to say that even if kim lost today, i'm so so proud of her she really fought tonight. She's the best in my hart and even if she never wins a gran slam she'll always be the best for me. hopefully she'll win a gran slam one day before she retires
Hi angele, i love all your gooberish comments about kim and lleyton, it's always entertaining.
That's all i wanted to say. i probably won't post anymore, sorry for my bad english.

RDS replayed the final this morning and somebody wanted me to tape it for them so they could see Kim's speech so I watched the very end of the matches and the speechs again. And I've just got a whole new respect for Lleyton and Kim after yesterday :angel: I've always known that Kim was classy but her speech was just, I dunno, no words to describe it. It was really heartful and adorable. And Lleyton :hearts: :hearts: Seeing him sitting there with Connor on his lap and wiping away tears from his eyes just melted my heart. Anyways I realized after the match last night that regardless of results on a tennis court, Lleyton and Kim are amazing people and they are truly the winners in the game of life :angel:

:wavey: Don't be afrâid to post more, Nathalie!

I just found a heartwarming open letter in our paper from Marc Herremans::angel: Made me feel completely warm inside.

Kim, the example

Eddy Merkx, Fabio Casartelli, Thierry Boutsen, Ayrton Senna...These are only a couple of names from our big sportsarchive. They are also names, each with their own history, their own emotions. Win or lose, happiness or sadness: it's always a thin line to walk on

Miklos Feher gave the deciding pass to victory in the match Guimaraes-Benfica. A couple of minutes later, he fell on the floor with his eyes open and lost life. Benfica won the game but lost a player and a friend. There are few sportstars who realise life is just like that. That (un)happiness is just hiding in a dark corner.

After my accident, I got to know this 18 year old girl. She was very young indeed, but already old enough to realise that being a topsporer, is just about nothing more than winning or losing. Last night, she played the finals of the AO, she's won or she's lost. But one thing is already clear: whatever she did, winning or losing, a couple of minutes after the match, she's back the smiling, lovely and sincere girl, blessed with the joy of life and extremely happy to play the game she loves the most. And all of that together in a mix with a pleasant life off the cour

If she reacts the same way, whether winning or losing, it' s not a lack of mentality, whatever some people say or write. This is just the realisation she has that both happiness and sadness are to find in real life and not in a match.

Dear Kim, thank you sooo much for being the example you are to me and for soooooo many other people!

Greets, Marc.


That letter made me cry! But not with sorrow. :)

My teeth are alright today. It's just like a constant dull pain rather than random shooting pains so it's easier to deal with :)

Yes. Her speeches always are! I have so much respect for both of them too. I honestly don't know how either of them do it after playing matches like that and then facing up to give a speech like that. I wish I could do that.

They're just so composed and it really is amazing that they can smile after losing a big match. I think they both have a great attitude and know that there's more to life than a tennis match.

Yep. Beautifully said :worship:

Lleyton looked so comfortable sitting there with Connor on his lap, chatting to Greg etc. and towards the end of the game too ( :angel: ), those pictures of him, so worried, so concerned, so in love with her, speak for themselves. Pictures do tell a thousand words and yes, my heart melted too.

Lleyton and Kim are just going to make amazing parents :angel: Connor looks so comfortable with both of them and just seems to love them. Which is quite amazing really when you think that he's no more than 4 or 5 and he can't see Lleyton and Kim that often because they aren't in Adelaide more than a couple of months every year. I think it says a lot about a person when a child is taken with them because children, unlike adults, can't have ulterior (sp?) motives. They wouldn't pretend to like someone just because they should, they wouldn't even think about doing that.

Wait til you see Kim's speech. Almost through all of it Connor is sitting on Lleyton's lap, it's adorable. And then when Kim says she's proud to be marrying an Aussie her tone of voice kind of changes, like she's shy. I only noticed that this morning but it's adorable. And Lleyton's smile when she says it is just :hearts:

I know that it's tough to watch someone else win. But honestly, I think she was so emotional about the win because she knew she was so close to losing. It was like some sort of emotinal overload for her to be the one who was supposed to win. She was so clearly nervous in the match and she had to fight through a lot to win.

I know, I'm saying this in the wrong place, but I really think her reaction was genuine. Also, we can't complain if some of Kim's classiness rubs off onto Justine. :angel:

Not on a regular basis no. I hate taking drugs unless it's absolutely necessary. Right now the pain is definetly something I can deal without any painkillers. In the past week I've taken some painkillers maybe 2 or 3 times but only at night before going to bed so that I'd be able to sleep. It tends to get worse at night as well for some reason :confused:

And for that reason I love them both so much!

I'm sure they did all spend a lot of time together. I think for Connor to be so comfortable with both of them though they must of spent a lot of time playing with him, talking to him, etc... I don't think he would be that comfortable with them if they hadn't paid a lot of attention to him personally. And he obviously adores them.

I don't take drugs unless I absolutely have to either. I too tend to grin-and-bear the pain. The pain gets worse at night because during the day you're busy, occupied, doing things that distract you from your mouth. At night you're lying still and you notice the pain a lot more.

Not on a regular basis no. I hate taking drugs unless it's absolutely necessary. Right now the pain is definetly something I can deal without any painkillers. In the past week I've taken some painkillers maybe 2 or 3 times but only at night before going to bed so that I'd be able to sleep. It tends to get worse at night as well for some reason :confused:




Pain is always worse at night. I think it is because there are no distractions. But also Doctors judge pain on whether it wakes you up or prevents you from sleeping.

It's always been that way for me. I know that. Sorry you are having to experience this too. :hug:

Thanks for the movie advice guys, I'll have a look on the net for what else is on. I saw Cold Mountain a while back Jess. I went with some people I met up with and I had no idea what the movie was about, but I didn't fall in love with the movie either. It was Ok, but all too sad in the end. (I was probably trying too hard to stop myself from crying)

I don't take drugs unless I absolutely have to either. I too tend to grin-and-bear the pain. The pain gets worse at night because during the day you're busy, occupied, doing things that distract you from your mouth. At night you're lying still and you notice the pain a lot more.

I absolutely hate to be on medication for anything. Right after my operation I had to take some stuff for pain, for the swelling, for my nose and some kind of medicated mouth wash or something to help keep my mouth clean but also to help my wisdom teeth heal. It drove me crazy to have to take so much medecine. All my prescriptions have run out now so the stuff I still have is all over the counter stuff that I just take whenever I need to.

Well I'm still wired shut so I can't eat at all or talk yet. I have an appointment with my doctor on Tuesday so I'm hoping that after that I'll be a little bit more 'normal'. I really don't know though, they haven't told me anything about what's going to happen when the wires come off or even when the wires are coming off. I don't want to assume that he's going to take them off on Tuesday because then I'll be dissapointed ( to say the least) if he doesn't. I've spoken to another girl who had surgery and after she got her wires taken out she was on soft foods for a while so that will probably be the case for me as well :( And soft foods are really soft foods, like baby food :o

It's about a young girl who is the black sheep of her family, but she has invited her parents and younger brother and sister to her apartment for thanksgiving dinner with her and her boyfriend.

So, most of it is her trying to fix the dinner ... and her family getting ready to go to the dinner. It's a small independent film. And I liked the music too. :)

I just have no words for Ezel's reaction, her speech and then her press conference. Her reaction when she won was so over the top. She didn't even react that emotionally to the RG win and that's the one that she claims meant so much to her. It looked to me like she was just trying to rub it in. And then her speech was clearly an attempt to upstage Kim. Since when does Ezel thank all the sponsors and the wta staff? And she never goes all sappy on her husband like that :rolleyes: And in her interview she herself brought up the fact that the crowd was cheering for Kim and sounded like of bitter about it :rolleyes:

Gosh, I can't fathom why more people would cheer for Kim than Ezel :rolleyes:

There was a quote from Ezel in the sports page's article: "I want to congratulate Kim for a wonderful tournament," Henin-Hardenne said. "She wasn't sure she could play and she did and she fought a lot, so congratulations for this unbelievable tournament."

Curious of her to bring that up and try to sound impressed and sympathetic after she told the Belgian press she thought Kim was lying about her injury. :rolleyes: Two-faced little cow.

She apparently told the Belgian press that she was sure she was going to be playing against a 100% Kim :rolleyes: Seriously Ezel, just shut up. After her whole 'I'm almost dead' act at the USO she needs to just shut up about anybody else's injuries.

Angele
01-31-2004, 09:12 PM
She SAID that? Just when I think I can't hate her any more than I already do...
My only satisfaction comes from what I imagine Lleyton's reaction to be if he heard what Ezel said. That would be friggin' hilarious. Kim and Lleyton should do a Newlyweds type show.
Anyway, in the end, the joke's on Justine, because by saying the things she has and acting the way she has she has alienated Kim, who was pretty much her only friend on the tour. Kim has tons of friends on the tour, a gorgeous athletic fiancee, and two families that love her. Oh, and the respect of Richard Williams. ;) I have to say, as much as I can't stand the Preds at times, I have to acknowledge that if I had any contact with them, I'd MUCH rather have them like me than dislike me.
Justine has her coach and the twelve-year old husband.
Who's the real winner here?
Well said :worship: I think Ezel could win 50 grand slam titles and she still couldn't compare to the person that Kim is. And plus Kim, like you said, has a great life and she's obviously happy and that's really all that matters.

Angele

Oh and about the Williams, I agree, I definetly wouldn't wanna be on their bad side. I think they must have some redeeming qualities though. Serena has said some questionable things in the past but I get the impression that she and Kim are friends so if Kim likes her, she can't be all bad. And Venus seems like a perfectly nice person to me. She seems sweet almost and she doesn't have that extra little bit of arrogance that Serena has. And neither of them come even close to comparing to Ezel :o

Let's just say when Lindsay Davenport, Queen of Non-Confrontational Niceness, questions your integrity on the court, there's a problem.

dagmar7
01-31-2004, 09:38 PM
I agree with Christina.

Lindsay Davenport isn't the queen of non-confrontational niceness.

Everyone remembers Hingis for that "half a man" slur against Mauresmo, but Lindsay made those remarks too. She apologized later though.

Davenport also, along with Capriati, was part of the "we have to unite to defeat the Williams sisters" thing, which seemed silly to me. They should have been working on their own games, not talking about some "let's get them" alliance.

She always says these things, and then the other player (Hingis, Capriati) gets blamed.

I think it's because she looks like she should be attending a suburban pta meeting, a Ralph Lauren cardigan casually slung over her shoulders. Those types get away with everything. Not that I have personal experience...

Edit: Oops, sorry Busty. Didn't realized you identified so closely.:o

Peridotpixie

I've always liked Lindsay. I think we'd better enjoy her while we can. I really think she'll be leaving the tour soon.

Peridotpixie
01-31-2004, 09:40 PM
I don't know. I can't compare Lindsay with Martina in terms of cattiness. I just can't.
Anyway, my point is that Lindsay would never, ever accuse someone of "cheating" unless she truly believed they were. She wouldn't say it out of spite, or anger, or bitterness. So the fact that lIndsay said it holds a lot of weight for me.
