Post Where's the Belgian talent?

I wonder if we have more young talents then Justine and Kim. Elke Clijsters seems to be talented, but not like Kim. Do we have other talents who can make it?

Kirsten Flipkens has been touted .... but her initial results haven't been too good but she's had bad draws

There are hardly any Belgians on the Junior ranks

Good luck to my favs

Hey, thanx for your offer. Currently we have 4 staff members already. I think we have every area pretty much covered, but where could you help? What are you good at? Or do you have any good contacts?

Interesting sites, Seldom! I hope you do one about Kirsten.
How is she doing? She had some injury and was out for a few weeks, but I think she's training again now, right?

There's also Elke, Leslie Butkiewicz, Caroline Maes, Debbrich Feys, Jessie Devries. But they are not in the same league as Kim or Justine. Maybe we can just hope they can enter the top 100. Though I read some article a few months ago about Devries. She said her ambitions were to get into the top 20.

I read a few good things about Benedicte Vliegen (does anyone know if she's related to Kristof Vliegen?), but she's only 13.

Aude Vermoezen (If I remeber well from what Arn said on the WTA board) is a promising young player. I think she's only 12. But I'm not sure.

I've never seen Elke play before, but from what I've read she's a different player than Kim, not a power player.
Some people said she was the better player, but you can't keep saying that anymore.

Elke has a lot of problems with her back, she's been injured so much, she also has left the VTV tennis centre. So I don't know if she'll ever become a professional player. I hope things will turn around for her.
