Who will the crowd support in the final? Justine or Kim?

My feeling is that Justine will get slightly more support. The Belgian fans will probably favour Kim a little but will applaud both players' winners. The French fans will probably favour Justine, though, as she's the French-speaker and the one who beat the #1 seed. Hopefully, it'll be a nice atmosphere on Saturday, and neither player will be in tears afterwards because of the crowd.

Allez Justine and take the title! Make it a good match, Kim!

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

Agreed. Justine. Doesn't she come from the wallon region unlike Clijsters or something?

Yes, Justine comes from the French-speaking part of Belgium, whereas Kim comes from the Flemmis part of Belgium.

Kim is well-liked at Roland Garros, so I think the crowd will support both players. After the first set, they will support the player that lost the first set.

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived
