Errr, Kim's definitely representing Belgium. On which channel was it, because I think it's a very dumb commentator...

i guess the problem is Belgium is one of the "LOWlands" and they might have confused thsi with the Netherlands. (which is in fact a bad translation for the "Neder Landen" or "Low lands)...

But off course, Americans have troubles with small European countries...

He's not stupid. He knows his tennis... just not his geography.
