Hopefully 2004 will be an even better year for the Belgian girls
Let's hope Kim and Justine stay at the top and that Kirsten will rise in the rankings!!
Also good luck to the other Belgian babes and especially Caroline Maes

All the best in 2007 Caroline Maes
and the rest of the Belgian girls

Please visit my Caroline Maes

Go Elsje

BTW since when is Xavier a belgian babe?

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 am really looking forward to seeing the mixed doubles between Belgium and Australia. I hope it'll be 1-1 after the singles.

Go Belgium

Els lost 6-7 7-5 2-6
She was 1-4 down in the 2nd set but came back. It was without a doubt the best match of the day, both players played really well and it was unlucky for Els with the draw cause I have little doubt that if she had drawn someome else she would have won. She played well and served well and I think if she keeps it up things look good for her.

She didn't mention in the interview, I don't think it is too serious

Els Why oh Why Myriam slipped (slipt?) away so deep in the rankings

C'mon Belgians
