Clijsters & Clijsters

Kim and Elke both won a tournament this week.

Kim won Hamburg (Tier II) by beating Venus 1-6 6-3 6-4
Elke won Salsomaggiore (Junior grade 2) by beating Galina Voskoboeva 6-3 4-6 6-3

It's pretty rare two sisters win a tournament in the same week, albeit a senior and a junior tournament but still a great achievement for the Clijsters sisters. Elke also won the doubles in Salsomaggiore btw. Looking forward to seeing her on the senior tour very soon.

Well done Kim & Elke.

Congrats to both of them

Im really looking forward to see Elke play.

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

Congrats Kim en Elke

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
