Haar jeugdcoach Bart Van Kerckhove, hij trainde Kim Clijsters 4 jaar lang (1992-1996) verwedde een bak bier op het feit dat Clijsters de top 10 van het vrouwentennis zal halen of niet. Iedereen weet hoe dit zou aflopen. Samen met Kirsten Flipkens trainde ze er vanaf jonge leeftijd al, ze was toen amper 6 toen ze de tennisbaan opstapte.



Kim Clijsters trok daarna naar de tennisschool in Wilrijk. In het jaar 1996 komt ze terecht bij Carl Maes. In het jaar 1998 wordt Clijsters professional. Haar ex-coach begeleidde haar tot de U.S. Open van 2002. Carl Maes heeft nu een job bij de Engelse tennisbond. In het jaar 1999 pakt ze haar eerste titel in Luxemburg : De Seat Open titel.

Hre you go. To be honest, it not terribly well-written in Dutch...

Her youth coach Bart Van Kerckhove (he coached Kim Clijsters for four years (1992-1996)), wagered a case of beer on Clijsters making top 10 in women's tennis. Everybody knows how that would turn out. Together with Kisten Flipkens she trained there from a young age; she was only 6 when she first set foot on a tennis court.

Kim Clijsters then moved on to the tennis school in Wilrijk. in 1996 she ends up with Carl Maes. In 1998 Clijsters turns professional. Her former coach trains her until the 2002 US Open [wasn't DeHous already hired by then?; I know Maes was gone by Wimbledon]. Carl Maes now has a job with the English tennis federation. In 1999 she won her fist title: the Seat Open title.

"No matter what happens, you have to try to stay positive, bad things can happen, but if you try to stay positive, something positive will come out of it…I believe that everything happens for a reason" - Kim Clijsters


"Goed is de ergste vijand van zeer goed" - Pascal Smet

"Als je iemand idealiseert, verlies je het contact met de werkelijkheid"

"Ca s’apprend par la souffrance, ça s’apprend par les déceptions, ça s’apprend par la densité du mal que ça te fait, plus ça te fait mal et plus ça te fait grandir. Y a des moments où tu te dis je ne vais pas le supporter, ça, ça fait trop mal, et pourtant tu passes au travers."
