Thumbs up Confirmed: Clijsters and Henin-Hardenne against Russia

It was confirmed by the president of the AFT (Association Francophone de Tennis), André Stein on a pressconference today.

Awesome first round Can't wait

Fed Cup-team kan rekenen op Clijsters én Henin

Justine Henin-Hardenne en Kim Clijsters, straks weer samen in de Fed Cup.Het Belgische Fed Cup-team dat op 22 en 23 april in Luik tegen Rusland speelt in de eerste ronde van de Wereldgroep, kan rekenen op de diensten van zowel Kim Clijsters als Justine Henin-Hardenne. Beiden bevestigden hun deelname, zo maakte de voorzitter van de AFT (Association Francophone de Tennis), André Stein, dinsdag bekend op een persconferentie.

Clijsters en Henin speelden niet meer samen in de Fed Cup sinds 2003. Toen haalde België het in Charleroi in de kwartfinale van de Wereldgroep met 5-0 van Slovakije. In 2001 won België de Fed Cup door in de finale Rusland te kloppen met 2-1. Ook toen waren Clijsters en Henin van de partij. Behalve de twee Belgische toppers zal het team van bondscoach Carl Maes bestaan uit Kirsten Flipkens en Caroline Maes of Leslie Butkiewicz.

Sterk Rusland
Het Belgische team zal het alvast niet onder de markt krijgen tegen de titelverdediger. Rusland kan immers rekenen op haar vier sterkste spelers: Maria Sharapova (WTA 5), Nadia Petrova (WTA 7), Elena Dementieva (WTA 8) en Anastasia Myskina (WTA 12).
De interland zal worden afgewerkt op gravel in de Country-Hall van Sart-Tilman. De winnaar van de partij neemt het in de volgende ronde (halve finale) op tegen Duitsland of de Verenigde Staten.

Het evenement is een organisatie van de AFT, de stad en de provincie Luik, het Waalse Gewest en de Franstalige Gemeenschap. Tickets zijn sinds 1 februari te koop aan 30 euro per stuk. Zowat 75 procent van het aantal beschikbare toegangskaarten is al verkocht. De zaal in Sart-Tilman biedt plaats aan 5.500 mensen. Mail een vriend Printversie 07/03/06 14u54

Allez.

wow what an amazing line up

Kim Clijsters (#1)
Justine Henin-Hardenne (#3)

vs

Maria Sharapova (#5)
Nadia Petrova (#7)
Elena Dementieva (#8)
Anastasia Myskina (#12)

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

it would be an explosive mixture! They will sweep their oponents off the court (if they don't kill each other before )

They would be awesome together! It couldn't get any better than that apart from a Linds-Kim or a Justine-Amélie team.
