Belgians win 3 of the first 4 Tier I titles of 05

The Belgians have played 4 tournaments this year and lost only 1 tournament.

Antwerp - Kim loses in the QF
Indian Wells - Kim wins over Lindsay
Miami - Justine loses in the QF, but Kim wins over Sharapova
Charleston - Justine wins over both the #1(Lindsay) and #2(Elena) seeds

yay!!!!!! I'm sooo excited they are both back playing! If only the rest of the Russians would step it up and really challenge for titles instead of losing early (yes Vera and Anastasia, I'm talking you both of you), hopefully Venus will find her championship form, and hopefully Jen will come back strong.

It's great that Justine managed to win in only her second tournament back just like Kim did. I'm sure that will give her loads of confidence for the real clay season.

Good for them, at least it is not that many Belgians. Like all those Russian girls!

More nations should enter players.

If this Belgian domination is a pattern for the year, I'll lose interest in womens tennis very quickly.

I would be truly excited if there will be a re-match of Justine and Serena, at French Open final! A Justine-Kim final would also be good.
