Justine got huge coverage during the weeks pre-and after the AO 2004
in Asia and Australia.
You have to also realize that Justine is with OCTAGON and they never
really target the USA as much as IMG sports stars. OCTAGON is home
of Amelie, Hingis, Hewitt, Anna, Mary, and Guga etc... If you notice
they never play the "apologists" pr
media blitz whenever one of their
clients says something or does something that the US media can't understand.
It's like the OCTAGON motto is..."hey they're big international stars that
are successful, regardless of what you may think of them or aware of".
Justine's with Adidas, and USA isn't their main market.
FYI-there's a huge vertical billboard panel of Justine in her red
AO 2004 outfit now flanking the ADIDAS Concept store in Singapore.
She's a huge star here. The local papers call her "Justine"...they
don't even mention the last names. Everybody knows that it's
"Justine the Belgian 3x grand slam winning tennis star".
