I hate it. Every interview with Kim ends up about Lleyton

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

i heard a rumour that he was her bf?

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

men are more important for the press?

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

lleyton brings bad luck to Kim.

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

Lleyton played first, that's why. When they were interviewing Lleyton, Kim was on court. When Kim was interviewed, both her and Lleyton's match had been over.

Actually I've often heard Lleyton asked about Kim, but I agree there seems to be more focus on the ladies' private lives than the men's (maybe because traditionally some of the blokes' love lives have been just too sordid for family TV?!)

I think it's because Ll doesn't really like to talk about his private live. He has a strained relation with press anyway, so they try not to get him even more annoyed by constantely asking questions about Kim (they do sometimes, though).
Kim is much more open, she seems to enjoy talking about anything including Ll and their relationship. She even has a 'Lleyton section' on her own site, so that really shows she has no problem talking about it.
