This page has been automatically translated from French into English by a translation software. Automatic translations are not as accurate as translations made by professional human translators.

Nevertheless these pages can help you understand information published by the City of Brussels.


Best of Belgium: Clijsters - Williams

On Thursday 8 July 2010, from 7:10 pm, at the King Baudouin Stadium.

The 'Best of Belgium' should have been a tennis match between the country's biggest tennis stars Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin, but Henin had to pull out after an injury. Serena Williams will replace her, but Henin will still be there as a spectator.
The game is now called 'Best of Belgium versus Best of the World'.

The event will also offer a musical program of Belgian top artists. The contest celebrates the start of the Belgian presidency of the European Union (1 July to 31 December 2010).

The game will also try to break the world record for the highest number of spectators at a tennis match. The current record is 30.472 visitors and is dated 1973. This match was played by Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in the Houston Astrodome.

Program (subject to change):
- 7:10 pm: opening ceremony
- 7:50 pm: Best of Belgium Concert (part 1)

Re: The Rumble In Brussels: Best Of Belgium vs. Best Of The World

Great, for once, American people can use the RTLinfo live stream Shows that exho is really BIG.

The court is on the middle of the football stadium... There is a small roof above the court , in case where it rains. But it seems not to rain, so great !

Spectators all have binoculars to watch the match because they are way too far from the court to watch it without binoculars
