Oh NO... Kim has split up with Carl Maes!!!!!!!!

I just heard that on the news here in Belgium.

they said that Belgium number 1 tennis player has split up with her Coach Carl Maes.

But they didn't say why?

Do you have other informations??

I'm so sad, I though their partnership was perfect



Who'll be her coach now???

Press Statement

This is the statement. I've done a quick translation.

June 12, 2002

Kim Clijsters and Carl Maes have decided to stop their collaboration after mutual consultation. Maes was the coach of Kim during the past six years.

Carl Maes' new and other interests are the motive for this untimely split.
And the number five in the world was also of the opinion that ‘a new turn in her coaching’ was possible.
Both Clijsters and Maes stress that neither results, neither other offers from coaches/players have something to do with the end of their professional relation.
After almost seven years (note: Carl prolonged his contract -for the seventh time- for another year last October) they ‘part ways in the best possible circumstances and express respect for each others achievements, person, and efforts during the past years.’

in Dutch it reads:
'Na onderling overleg hebben Kim Clijsters en Carl Maes besloten om hun samenwerking te beëindigen. Maes was zes jaar trainer van de Limburgse.

Nieuwe en andere interesses voor de tennistrainer zijn de aanleiding voor "de vroegtijdige breuk". En onze nummer vijf van de wereld vond eveneens dat "een nieuwe wending in haar tennisbegeleiding mogelijk" was.

Zowel Clijsters als Maes benadrukken dat noch resultaten, noch andere aanbiedingen van spelers/coaches iets te maken hebben met het stopzetten van de werkrelatie.

Na bijna zeven jaar (Carl Maes verlengde in oktober voor de zevende maal op rij zijn contract voor één jaar, nvdr) gaan beiden "in de best mogelijke omstandigheden uit mekaar en uiten respect voor elkaars prestaties, persoon en inzet over de jaren heen."

I hope it will do her good
any news who might be her new coach?

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Hehe Penguin! You guys, I am crying! This is horrible, I would only cry more if Guga broke with Larri, but that will never happen 'cause Larri is the father Guga lost at 11 y.o.

FYI

the text I 've translated is the one that has been issued by Carl to Belgian press agency Belga this morning.

This is 100% no rumour, speculation or anything else than fact. The Belgian press is starting to bring the news on their websites, it's on the Belgian radio and TV news now too.

further news:

Carl has given an interview to Flemish TV.

Overall, he said that he stops the coaching of Kim with immediate effect. So he won't be her coach neither in Rosmalen, nor Wimbledon.

Lleyton's coach, Jason Stoltenberg, will take over for the time being, in order to help Kim bridging the period until she has a new coach.

He said that they have had a splendid 7 years together.
He felt that it was becoming an empty existence, and had mentioned that feeling several times in the past.

He also added that he would have stopped earlier, if it wouldn't have been for Kim. Because of Kim, he stayed on these many years.

He added that the challenge was gone, as Kim has reached already an enormous high level, and that working one-on-one with a player was becoming a little bit too dull.

He reaffirmed that he didn't quit neither because of the latest results, nor that Kim would have someone else in mind, or nor because that he would have some offer from another player.

He now wants to take some time off, some sabbatical weeks, and finally think about himself first, instead of for someone else.

Note: this is no transcript of the interview, as I didn't had the time.

A hint for the people understanding Dutch:
in case you want to watch this interview online, it should be up by now on: http://www.vtm.be/asx/vtmnieuws13uur.asx
