Arrow Lleyton proposed to Kim at Eiffel Tower rumour!

Hewitt engaged: report
06jun02

LONDON: World tennis No.1 Lleyton Hewitt is reportedly planning to announce his engagement to Kim Clijsters this weekend.

A report in British newspaper the Daily Mirror said Hewitt, 21, had proposed to the Belgian world No.4 at the top of the Eiffel Tower last week during the French Open in Paris.

Australian television commentator John Alexander may have accidentally broken the news on air earlier this week when he referred to Clijsters as Hewitt's "fiancee".

When cornered by Australian journalists at Roland Garros, Alexander said it was a mistake and just a slip of the tongue.

A spokeswoman from Hewitt's management Octagon denied any knowledge of an engagement.

But today's report, in The Scurra - as in scurrilous - column, quotes a source saying the couple was going to tell their parents on Clijsters' 19th birthday on Saturday.

Rumours of an engagement first surfaced more than a year ago when Clijsters started wearing a ring on her wedding finger, which the Australian gave her as a gift.

Re that Lleyton and Kim article I posted here (comes from headline in news.com.au btw), I really wonder how these reporters get to know this.

So I am sort of sceptical. On the other hand, I would like to know what caused this report. There must be something that triggered it. Wonder what.

The 'parents announcement' certainly doesn't make much sense.

Thinking of the last mistakes the Australian press made re Kim and becoming Australian, I wouldn't be too surprised if some reporter jumped to conclusions again, based on let's say half a word here or there.

Anyway, the report is making a headline in the Australian press today.

It was in the paper today... major miracle!! British press know who Lleyton and Kimmie are!! Here's the article from The Mirror Oooooh!!! I hope it is true!!! It's just sooooooo adorable!!

World number one tennis player Lleyton Hewitt is planning to make a very special announcement this weekend.

But I'm sure he won't mind Scurra readers knowing in advance that he has secretly become engaged to his ball-bashing sweetheart, the fourth-ranked woman player Kim Clijsters.

Australian Hewitt, 21, proposed to his lover last week as they stood entwined at the top of the Eiffel Tower, almost two years to the day since they first met in Miami. "They're ecstactic," I am told. "They plan to tell their families on Kim's 19th birthday, which is on Saturday."

Sadly, there is a loser in this love match... Belgian Clijsters wants to quit her homeland and resettle in sunnier Adelaide and under tennis regulations will be able to play for Australia after living there for three years. "Belgium will lose their best player," says my source.

Please be true!

I'm so pleased with that for them!!!

I did the same three years ago when I was on journey with school in Paris but it was not an "engagement", it was to go out with a girl, and she said yes but it didn't last long. Only 2 months!!!!

I hope it'll last all their lives!!!!

Post hi,

hi, Well, actually, I don't imagine Kim and Lleyton getting married already. I mean, they don't seem the type to take that step right now. Not that they wouldn't feel serious about each other. Thhat, of course is an other thing. But, I'm quite curious if this thing is true. I'm gonna watch Belgian news on Saturday, that's for sure. Maybe they'll say something about that. Oh by the way, I find the word Lleyki quite funny!!!

PS: sorry for my previous reply. Made a mistake there and it was sent before I knew it!!!

well, if this really happened last week, no wonder why Kim didn't manage to go intothe fourth round. Lleyton was probably dominating her head.

I'm always skeptical of stories that get basic facts wrong. Kim and Lleyton did not meet 2 years ago in Miami. It was nearly 2 and a hald years ago in Melbourne.
