That's it: I'm sick of flemish journalists.

First of all I'm flemish, well let's say I'm a belgian.

And today after the big win of Henin yesterday I was totally stunned again when I saw the evening journal.

It was Kim this Kim that Kim this Kim that....
And the journalists where even pointing to the fact that Henin almost made the turning point by faking the injury and getting time-out.

Maybe they forgot the fact that after 4-0 Henin was playing better and upped the level so it became 6-3


Yesterday after the match I was thinking : Finally the journalist have to admit that Henin can be sometimes better than Kim.

But today prooved me wrong. It's a disgrace to have such journalists. Justine deserves much much more respect.

Somebody who feels the same way as me about the flemish journalist not' beeing neutral at all?


Ps. Why we have to be flemish in sport????
Because in politics it's a disgrace if you think flemish. Maybe the VRT should organise a tennis match between the politics journalists and the sports journalist.

Allez, Come-on, ...,

pffff.....I saw the news on both channels, and as a JUSTINE AND KIM fan, I really am fed up with all the nonsense about this issue... Stop searching for things like this

C'mon Belgians

I'm already used to it.
In fact, now I find it funny how they always try to make it look better for Kim.

Actually, I asked a friend of mine (who works at the vrt sport) if anyone there was biased. Because I noticed Karl was praising Justine a lot more during Wimbledon with her beautiful play etc. During Kim her matches he was more silent (when I compared it to the BBC). And Steven Martens is really pro henin, because of his difficult relationship with the clijsters. Anyway he asked Karl and he said that he had a lot of comments in the other directions (meaning pro Kim). So it's not as simple to commentate I guess. It's difficult to make everybody happy. We all see and hear different things while watching a match from a subjective point of view (pro kim or pro justine)

besides the rtbf is much worse. During RG final the objectivity had left the building. It was all "allez henin"!

I noticed it too. I don't get upset about it but it is silly. Before the match started it was like.

'ATTENTION ATTENTION people, KIM is playing her 10th final this year , what a performance '

by the way, the opponent of Kim is Justine Henin-Hardenne

I also noticed that some papers were writing only 'bout Kim's performance and her being the future number one. But I guess the fact that they reported more about Kim, is due to a lack of time for the papers to make a full report about the San Diego match. I suppose these journalists would have thought Kim would win on hardcourt anyway and therefore made his article based on Kim's performances. Did they know that Justine was going to beat Kim

But what bothers me more is that today's papers really are exaggerating this 'discussion' between Kim & Justine whether Justine was faking an injury during their match... Now it looks like they're in war or something.

Yeah, that's why I'm watching all the tennis on VRT! Because the French TV is as bad as RTBF!


BTW, it's was "allez henin" but "alez juju, that's how you need to play breaking clijsters game down, keeping her head in the water"

YES!!

On the First Page of La Dernière Heure, there is a pic of Kim and Justine during the press ceremony with Kim looking at justine in a dissapointing way and henin smiling with this title :

"CLIJSTERS-HENIN, THE BIG QUERREL"
the pic
Kim Clijsters can't stand anymore she's losing to Justine

and in the paper, they report Kim's comment out of context and put Justine one's "I'm a fair play player" and so... So, now the walloons will love henin more and hate Kim!

Well, that don't bother me if they both play that RTBF cheers for Henin and Canvas for Kim.
But what annoys me the most is when Justine play and not Kim.
On Canvas, even when Kim is not playing, it's always Kim this, Kim that

You all should be happy we finally get to see tennis, and nag less.

Yeah that's true! They always compare Justine with Kim even if Kim isn't playing than!
I watched some matches from Wimbledon (wasn't able to watch them because I was on a holiday) but it was Justine's match and I don't know against who it was, but it was in the second week, that they said that Kim plays much better that Justine and played much quicker! What's that? That doesn't matter! As long as they win their matches!
