If Clijsters & Verkerk win, will local papers work the "Dutch-speaking" angle?

I'm just asking because some Canadian papers mention Daniel Nestor's every move even if he doesn't take the Doubles title.

Will certain papers from parts of Belgium and the Netherlands make the correlation that the Men's and Women's champions are Dutch speakers (if it happens)?

I don't think so. Flanders and Wallonia are a lot closer than is often thought of. BTW, the Dutch are not interested in the Belgian success now that they have their own finalist.
One journalist said it literally: "Now that Verkerk is in the final, I don't want to know anything about the ladies' final."

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!
26.03.2009: More Kim years to come!
