Smile Got a question...

Ok this might be a little dumb. But I'm going to ask because I have always wondered. I know that Kim is from the Dutch speaking part of Belgium, and Justine from the French speaking. But does Juju know Dutch as well, or just the French? And what is the official language of Belgium? I've just always been curious I know there are different names for those who speak Dutch and French.

Hold on I'll try to explain.
Justine doesn't speak (much) dutch just a few words ...
She has quit school quite young so that she didn't learn dutch wel.

We have 3 yes 3!!! official languages
Flemmish / Dutch 55% of the peopl
French 45%
And German 5%

I hope I have helped you

there are 78.000 german speakers in belgium. there are 10.000 000 inahabitants in belgium.
so german -speakers represent less than 1%.

Yea that looks like Olivier. And the girl crying is Dominique Van Roost . Justine is prolly Catholic since she is from the Walloon Part.

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

omg xin..do you ever watch tennis

Olivier Rochus is a Belgian ATP-player, he's now around #62 in the world.

Since you don't know Dominique I guess you don't follow tennis that long. She retired a few years ago..was our first top10 player in WTA

I have no idea ... I don't know much about Dominique except for the fact that she was a great player and has reached the number eight and that she did retire and has a baby now.
But from her tennis carreer I'm almost blanc in my memory.
I'm ashamed for myself
