belgian press unanimous about fake forfeit of Justine

The comments are quite clear: Kim would have made it here on this underground; Justine had nothing to win here, on top of it she was irritated about not being the real star. In general, the Belgian tennis fans are perceived to be the real victims.
Quite amazing I was attacked for having the same opinion on the board here yesterday....

Maybe you should read "Le Soir" or "La Libre" and maybe you wouldn't say "belgian press unanimous"...

(I want to say "La DH" or "Vers l'Avenir" too, but the others are "real" newspapers )

Juju should be pissed about Kim winning awards like "2003 Belgian Sportswoman of the Year". If anyone can "justify" slights like that (obviously a result of Flemish chauvanism) please enlighten me!

I know, that's like giving Venus & Kim all the GS titles the last two years when Serena & Justine won all the final matches.

I would much rather have three slams than the '2003...Belgian Sportsperson of the Year Award...'

This is so petty. I believe Justine. EVERYBODY is soooo jealous.
It's so lame, it's beyond being lame.

How about some links to articles, instead of a blanketm unsupported claim? Not that anyone has any reason to doubt you....

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Gopher? Are you even Belgian? There's so many freaking newspapers
there. French, Flemish, German, Dutch, and even English. Bring em all
out and let's see what they say. Don't expect to find it in google either
because they only list certain ones, not every single printed rag in Belgium!!!!!

IF what every Tom, Dick and Dopey is correct nobody likes Justine.
Let's just forget the fact that these people have never even set
foot in Belgium in there freaking life, much less have a passport
to their name. I'm not even too sure they passed geography class.

Yeah. Right. She's only loved by the local neighbors and perhaps
the fish monger around the block! If she's so unloved...how
could every single person in Belgium be as dissappointed as you say they
are?

By any chance are you a Jen, Kim or Williams fan? Well are you?


Make up your mind. Hated by everyone? Hated by all of Belgium?
Hated by all tennis fans? Hated by dog lovers? Get it straight
Hated by readers of Tennis Week? ESPN Sports Center?
already!!!!!!!!!

Leave it Greeny, it's not worth the trouble. It doesn't even really matter if every Belgian newspaper claims Justine forfeited falsely. Like Lei Clijsters says, "It all gets blown out of proportion"

besides, this arguing with rodents and the like is bringing back an oft used biblical phrase on this board....what was it again?..oh yeah: Pearls before swine

Did see some nice pics of the Justinator being interviewed by Sabine Applemens
on some person's private web photo album from the official site.
