Justine more popular than Kim in Belgium
Justine-Hennin-Hardene (JHH) has surprassed her fellow countryman, Kim Clijsters, in popularity throughout the country since her Roland Garros victory and recent Acura win.
Clijsters was the #1 favorite in Belgium for a few years, but after her meltdown against SERENA WILLIAMS in the Australian Open and her rumored defection to that same country to be with her boyfriend, the tide has clearly turned towards HH, even though she is a much more introvert personality than Clijsters.
With the impending title of #1 coming to Clijsters, this will add even more pressure to a player who will be out to try to prove her critics wrong in their claims that she may not be the most worthy player to hold that title, especially in light that she is not the best female player in the world, as the WILLIAMS still dominater her, but she also is not the best player in her home country of Belgium as well.
Clijsters will have a lot to prove at the upcoming Open as to how she will hold up at the top spot.
