KClijsters hello Every body!
Dimitri Dear Kim, first of all, congrats for the great match of yesterday. It seems you had some difficulties to enter this tournament. How do you feel now ? Has your confidence grown up ? Do you feel like you could be the first belgian woman to will Rollang Garros this year ?
KClijsters My 1st was tough yesterday was a lot better. I feel like I get better match after match.
BelgFien What means the trophee 'Sportwoman of the year of Belgium' for you?
KClijsters It means a lot to me after seeing all the people that have won it before it's a great honnour.
kimsfan Hello Kim.I'm a great fan of all belgian player.So my question is:do you think that the clay court of Roland is enough faster for you this year?Thanks KIM and good luck
KClijsters Thanks Kimsfan, I feel that the clay is a little bit softer this year, the balls are not bouncing as high but that's probably because of the rains we had.
Fien_Belgi Is it true that you don’t know your draw from before because Carl won’t tell it?
KClijsters I only know my 1st round.
RickL You've got so many fans now all around the world. One day you wake up and you're a celebrity. How has the experience been for you? Does it effect your game?
KClijsters I don't play tennis to be famous. I play tennis because I love it. It's great to see that in many tounaments I have a lot of support from the crowd. It helps a lot.
Jimich Hello Kim. You were injuried some months ago. You didn't play the second match of Fed Cup versus australia because you were injuried yet. Now, you seems beter, as you win a tournament last month. What is exactly your health now? No more pain, or maybe some pain? Jean-Michel, from Mons (Bergen) - Belgium
KClijsters Hi Jimich, my arm feels a lot better but it is still not 100 %. I am working very hard to get it all better.

Cool2 Do you prefer to play against powerful players or technical ones?
KClijsters It does not really bother me. I just try to focus on my game.
Stef Kim, What is your explanation for the fact that Belgium tennis is doing so well lately?

KClijsters I know that I did not play my best in the 1st match but I felt very satisfy after.
Tine Do you find that Court Philippe Chatrier is very different from Court Suzanne Lenglen (with regards to the speed of the court)?
