In this thread, I thought it would be fun to speculate on which WTA / ATP players will be in the wedding party (assume that the whole entire wedding party will be composed of tennis players), which players will attend the wedding and best of all, which players WILL NOT be invited :devil:

IMO:

Maid of Honor: Elke Clijsters :o - Obvious Choice

http://www.fedcup.com/shared/medialibrary/image/playerprofile/FC_819_playerprofile.JPG

Bridesmaids:

1) Jaslyn Hewitt ;) - Of course she will also be in the wedding

http://news.bbc.co.uk/media/images/39187000/jpg/_39187174_hewitt144.jpg

2) Jennifer Capriati :p - I think FILA mates Jen / Kim get along and have practiced together before

http://media.wtnworld.com/pictures/1004.jpg

3) Ai Sugiyama :D - Former doubles partner gets nod as final Bridesmaid

http://news.bbc.co.uk/media/images/39253000/jpg/_39253022_sugiyama_getty.jpg

Best Man: Max Mirnyi :) - The Beast is Lleyton's steady doubles partner

http://tennis.crazy.free.fr/mirnyi/max6.JPG

Groomsmen:

1) Joachim Johansson ;) - Joachim will not want to be sitting down while Jaslyn is in the wedding

http://www.spb-tennis.ru/news/2004/02/Joachim_Johansson1.jpg

2) Patrick Rafter :eek: - I think Pat and Lleyton get along quite well

http://www.australianoftheyear.gov.au/images/recipients/2002PatRafter_t.jpg

3) Todd Reid :D - Next generation Aussie

http://www.sporever.fr/Resultats_Tennis/photos/t_reid.jpg


The following players WILL NOT be invited to the wedding:

1) Justine Henin-Hardenne & Pierre :tape: - There will be security outside the wedding to make sure Justine does not get into the grounds
2) James Blake :tape: - After Lleyton's comment at the USO
3) Mark Philippoussis :devil: - We all know he and Lleyton are not the best of friends
4) Serena Williams :lol: - Kim will not want to see reason #2 that she has not won a GS
5) Venus Williams :lol: - Kim will not want to see reason #3 that she has not won a GS
6) Els Callens :tape: - If only Els could get her hands on Leo for giving all those Antwerp WC to Elke while she had to play qualifying
7) Lindsay Davenport - For some reason, I just don't think Lindsay will be invited ... after defeating Kim at the YEC in Munich, she pulled out of the final ... Also Kim schooled her in USO 2003 :rolleyes: ... Also Kim was not invited to Lindsay's wedding:wavey:
8) Andy Roddick :fiery: - Lleyton knows he got a cheap call against Andy in the year he won USO
9) Alex Corretja :tape: - I think there was blood spilled at a Davis Cup match between Alex and Lleyton
10) Masha, Sveta and Nastya - No way Kim will be able to look at any one of these girls at her wedding knowing that they have a GS and she dosen't :tape:


What are your thoughts?

pierce0415
Sep 18th, 2004, 02:38 AM
I think Caroline Maes and Kirstin Flipkins will also get invites, as well as Alicia Molik

Jelena is a toss up - she is FILA mates w/ Kim but may not get invited for ditchin Australia

darrinbaker00
Sep 18th, 2004, 02:42 AM
I have another question: who will carry whom across the threshold? Will Kim defer to tradition, or will Lleyton defer to superior size and strength? ;)

Why the hell is Jennifer drinking Pepsi? She thinks she is the fucking britney spears of the tennis world. I'm j/k ;)

But seriously, I think Kim might invite Justine because Justine invited Kim to her wedding with Pierre.

Sep 18th, 2004, 03:55 AM
I think Kim will invite Justine also.
Because:
1) Justine invited her to her wedding
2)Kimmie is a nice girl
3) I don't think they dislike each other. It's all hype by the media.

I'm sure Kim will invite Jelena but it's up to Jelena as she have to return Australia for attend Kim's wedding! :eek:

Sep 18th, 2004, 05:20 AM
I think they gonna invite the William Sisters too coz, they usually called each other when someone's sick or something. Kim said that in her diary, I think they do getting along. Amd Jen will definitely get invite, they are very closed friends, the pic proves it. Justine will also get invite coz they were closed friends back then, I don't know about now. :confused:

Sep 18th, 2004, 05:22 AM
2) James Blake :tape: - After Lleyton's comment at the USO


What did Lleyton say?

Hasn't Serena promised to design a dress for Kim's wedding? (although I hope, that Kim is way smarter and will try to find something more decent)

Hasn't Serena promised to design a dress for Kim's wedding? (although I hope, that Kim is way smarter and will try to find something more decent)

It's asinine to think that Serena would push her tastes or her boundaries against someone else's limits. Serena dressed another sports figure for the Espy's and the lady looked extremely beautiful as to the personality Serena saw her in. If Kim and Serena even agree to Serena producing a dress, as a customer, Kim would get what she wants.

Kusnetsova will get invited. On TV i say Kim, Svetty, and Alicia watching serenas vs jen quater0final match at the french. i think those three are good friends.

Pamela Shriver
Sep 18th, 2004, 12:21 PM
I've banned my George from going unless he stops drooling over Kim. I might Pammentate as they walk down the aisle though.

I think there will be a lot of invitations sent to fellow tennis players but because of the timing, we might see a lot skip it because they have their own tournaments to get ready for. But anyway here's what I think :

Invited players ( WTA) - Elke and Jaslyn (obviously), Jennifer, Ai, Jelena, Lindsay, Serena, Venus, Caroline Maes, Kirsten, and probably the other Belgian girls as well, even Justine but imo only because Kim wants to be polite. Also Alicia Molik could get an invite.

ATP: Tim Henman ( who if following the very first post idea I'd nominate as Best Man because I think he's pretty much Lleyton's best friend on tour), Joachim, Mark, Wayne, Todd(s), Patrick Rafter, Xavier, Rochus brothers

Also re Serena and the whole wedding dress thing, from my understanding Serena told Kim before she and Lleyton were engaged that she'd love to design her dress but no more came of it than that. Kim is getting her dress made by a belgian designer.

Sep 18th, 2004, 12:34 PM
Elena Dementieva will be the bridesmaid (as always)

I imagine Joachiam, Jas, and Elke will be there as well.

englishjenfan
Sep 18th, 2004, 12:51 PM
Yep Jen, Ai def. What about Anastacia, they are good friends.
Did Jen get an invitation to Lindsay's? Did she go?
*Emily*

*Karen*
Sep 18th, 2004, 12:55 PM
Jen's always said her and Lindsay respect each other but aren't friends. I doubt she'll have been at the wedding. I have seen quite a few pics of Kim and Jen together. Maybe they are mates.

Wasn't Lindsay's wedding teeny?

Lindsay and Lleyton got on pretty well when they won the race thingy.

Yeah Jen siad she ays hi etc to lindsay but aren't the best of friends, just wondered if she was at the wedding. Jen n kim are v.good friends, apparently when Jen won the French, Kim said how she was kind of happy for Jen. From then on they have been friends, going out for meals etc!

Lindsay has always been quiet. I wouldn't be suprised if she had a private wedding. I think a person's wedding should be their choice: large, small, whatever. Hopefully, it will be their first and only wedding, and whatever pleases them, go for it. So if Lindsay, did not invite other tennis players, what is so wrong with that. :confused:

I think people forget that Tennis players (like employees) do have a life outside of tennis. I don't see too many co-workers hanging out with each other after work. I don't think any player will be so angry, if Kim does not invite them.

Elleke
Sep 18th, 2004, 01:34 PM
Probably also, Gilles Elseneer, he was practicing with kim during the usopen, and Kristof Vliegen? they've been to the same school, etc.

Best Man: Max Mirnyi :) - The Beast is Lleyton's steady doubles partner
Since when? they won the US open together several years ago but don't play together now and didn't for long.

) Mark Philippoussis :devil: - We all know he and Lleyton are not the best of friends
Actually they are very good mates, they weren't a few years ago but they are now, I think he will be invited.

6) Els Callens :tape: - If only Els could get her hands on Leo for giving all those Antwerp WC to Elke while she had to play qualifying
Kim and Els are good friends. Els asked Kim to play doubles in Hasselt.


10) Masha, Sveta and Nastya - No way Kim will be able to look at any one of these girls at her wedding knowing that they have a GS and she dosen't :tape:
Maria and Sveta probably won't be invited simply because Kim doesn't really know them. I think Nastya has a better shot at being invited than Jelena who a lot of people think will be. Nastya and Kim are good friends.

And yeh Kim and Jelena have been best friends since they were like 14 or 15
Best friends?? Good friends on tour yes, but not best friends, Jelena wouldn't even talk to Kim after Kim beat her at Junior Wimbledon.

molik won't be invited because kim injured her ankle last time.
Lleyton and Alicia grew up together and Molik didn't trip Kim over

I seriously don't see them inviting a lot, Caroline Maes, Kirsten Flipkens, Els, Mark, Pat and the other DC boys. Belgian guys like Vliegen, Elseneer maybe Xavier and Olivier. Ai. But I think it will mianly be family and their close friends.

Completely agree with you.....peoples weddings are private and they have the right to choose who they like :)

From all the publicity this has been getting, one thing we know for sure is that it won't be a 'private' wedding.

Naturally, many Australian and Belgian tennis players will get invited. Maybe Ai as well, but I doubt she would turn up. Anastacia and Jennifer seem to get along fine with Kim. I've seen them chatting and making jokes with each other outside the courts. I don't believe Kim and the Williams Sisters are 'friends' - they might not have a problem with each other, but their 'relationship' doesn't seem to be the 'let's contact each other every second day to gossip and girl-talk over coffee' one.

There was this interview few weeks ago, and Kim was asked if she had kept contact with the players on wta, and she actually mentioned only the Williams sisters... so I believe they are friends :) I think they'll be invited

I guarantee Ai will be invited, Kim and Ai were doubles partners a lot focourse but above all they are very good friends.

So basically, most of you think that anyone who has ever been spotted within spitting distance of either player is automatically a cherished friend who will be invited to their wedding?

They're just people they speak to while they're doing their job!

Pamela Shriver
Sep 18th, 2004, 06:56 PM
Ai will almost certainly be there so that they can perform The Kim and Ai musical before the disco.

Altogether now:
"I could have se-erved all night, I could have se-erved all night,
And Still, come back for more balls please"

"Miiiiiiidnight! Not a sound from the ump-ire,
Hath the crowd lost their memory,
of my days in the slam...."

"The Phaaaaaaaaaaaaaantom of the Wim-ble-don is theeeeeeeeere,
In my mind"

"I closed my eyes,
Drew back my back-hand
Ahh-ah-ah
Buuuut it got jammed,
Ahh-ahhh
Any slam will do"

Kim is good friends with Serena, and friendly with Venus.
Serena and Kim are always talking to Serena, and Kim is friends with Venus, but not buddy buddy

But Kim would never invite Serena and not invite Venus

Yea I did see them together but that doesn't mean they're friends, maybe just hanging out. :shrug:

Sep 19th, 2004, 05:20 AM
There's a difference between tour's friends and best friends. Right now, my four choices are Jen, Natasya(they're very very good friends, usually hanging out together outside court), and Ai ( a very good double partner). That's it, don't really know about their relationships with Kim, so....

~|Naomi|~
Sep 19th, 2004, 07:12 AM
Jelena and Kim are great friends, and yes Jelena is one of Kim's best friends. They have basically grown up on the tour together and were doubles partners basically most of their junior career and also for about a year in seniors. They always have so much fun together and have known each other for yonks.
Jelena also knows lleyton and they were friends however that was mostly cause of the aussie connection so they dont talk much anymore.
If anyone on the WTA is gonna be invited it will be Jelena (at least in the top 5 picks).
And about the wimbledon thing ... im not quite sure about that but that was when they were heaps young and u kno teen girls and how bitchy they are :lol:


I know everything you have said there, however, they weren't doubles partners for most of their junior careers, Kim won the US Open with Dyberg and after the French which they one they didn't play Wimbledon together, they only played a few tournaments together it just so happens they won the French together. But like I said they aren't best friends. Good friends on tour does not make them automatically best friends and most cherished friends in their lives.
So if they are best friends, why does Kim never mention Jelena when asked her closest friends on tour yet always says Jen and the Williams, usually mentions Daniela, Ai and Nastya. She has also mentioned Lindsay before.
As for Jelena and Lleyton as friends:lol: No way at all! I stil remember that interview they had to do together several years ago when Jelena was still playing for Australia.

If anyone on the tour will be invited it is Caroline Maes, she has to be Kim's closest tennis playing friend, they do a lot together like go on holiday for example. Then Kirsten Flipkens who calls Kim like her big sister and now they 'grew up together' they were at VTV together. Then I'd say probably Ai. Then Capriati and Nastya, Kim hangs out with them away from the tennis courts and practice.

So basically, most of you think that anyone who has ever been spotted within spitting distance of either player is automatically a cherished friend who will be invited to their wedding?
:worship:

Serena and Venus have kept contact with Kim while Kim has been injured through email and phone, but I think it may have been more encouragement than anything as they certainly know what it is like to be injured!

But if you want to go into the 'best friend' theory then the Williams' sisters are a sure thing. In an interview mind you it was the same one in which Kim said Serena would design her dress:lol: although that was a joke. Kim said the Williams' are like her 'best friends' in the locker room and aren't anything like some peope perceive and that she can talk to Serena about anything and they always have a laugh.

about Lls best man, sure wont be a tennisplayer. Will be his best mate Hayden, tho he has not attended as many of Lleys matches as previous years

Yep I'm thinking him or Andrew McLeod.

Scott Draper will also proabbly score an invite as he and Lleyton are good friends, in fact Lleyton and Jaslyn helped him meet his girlfriend:)

As for the bridesmaids I think Elke, Caroline and then someone we have never heard of:)

One retired player I'm pretty confident will get an invite is Sabine Appelmans, now there is an example of a player who is one of Kim's 'best tennis friends'. Sabine has stayed with Kim and lleyton in Adelaide:D
