Congrats to Belgium

Hats off to Belgium for finally breaking American dominance-even if it's only for one slam. Discounting Mary Pierce-this will be the first non-American slam winner since Hingis in 1999.

Now lets hope for a good final

I love you.

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!

As long as they spend it on programs that help the community at large, what's wrong with that? Justine and Kim don't need all that money. At this level, the money is more symbolic than anything.

The Belgian government should allot $1 billion budget to educate Belgian tennis fans the proper way of watching live tennis.

congrats to Kim and Justine!!!!

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.
