Clijsters and Henin-Hardenne to receive the 'Groot Kruis in the Kroon orde'

The highest distinction to be handed out by the belgian royal palace!

Next thing we know, umpires will be forced to say
'Game Dame Henin-Hardenne!'

They'll be the first knights ever to wear an ermine coat and a tennis racket (instead of a sword).
Great that they both get it, but the palace should have waited for Kim's Slam (which is inevitably coming closer, I feel).

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!

Groot Kruis, is that what's on justine's lip? awweee...

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

i think it's "only" the second highest distinction
