I've just read somewhere that Kim was in Adelaide, but is she already by Lleyton's house?
I don't think she's in a hotel if Lleyton's house is in the same city.

This is what Lleyton said in a interview after his win...

QUESTION: Congratulations, Lleyton. Justine Henin got married and she changed her name to the husband's family name. If you marry Kim Clijsters, do you want her to change to Kim Hewitt as well?
LLEYTON HEWITT: I got no idea. Haven't even thought about it. That's the least of my worries, if we're to get married, you know, it doesn't really bother me, I guess.
QUESTION: I don't think I can top that. Talking of Kim, who was it you were on the phone to when your dad brought the phone out on to court?
LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, it was Kim. That was an easy one.

LOL that would be funny! Kim gets tired of waiting for Lleyton to start her holiday, so she takes off on her own.

Here's a new update:

After his win in Shanghai, Lleyton arrived in Adelaide on Tuesday morning (with Kim) and gave a press conference. On Thursday, the couple will be in Sydney for a tennis clinic and on Sunday they'll attend a charity event.

Looks like Lleyton & Kim will be off to the Great Barrier Reef. Here's an article.....


Hewitt knows no barriers in his relentless pursuit of greatness
From Neil Harman, Tennis Correspondent in Shanghai


LLEYTON HEWITT will spend the next couple of weeks exploring the delights and dangers that unite to form the mysterious beauty of the Great Barrier Reef. It might be as well for any passing shark, stingray or box jellyfish that considers taking a nibble out of his pale white flesh to swim off in the opposite direction. Too long looking into his sea-blue eyes is certainly enough to see off all manner of human predator.

Lleyton did go to the tennis camp. There are some articles and pictures (very cute, surrounded by little Lleytons) in the Luscious Leyton Lounge on atpworld.com. No word on whether Kim was there though. No pictures either. At least so far.

Re Kim in Australia; she is in Sydney now.

Here's some info:

Nov. 22, 2002

(own article)

Kim and Lleyton are spending time on charity events for ill children in Australia this week.
They are in Sydney to help raise money for the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

They will play on Sunday 24th November in the Sydney International Tennis Centre, Sydney Olympic Park.


Text from the Foundation:

“16 professional tennis legends battle it out on court with sporting and entertainment celebrities. Confirmed players and celebrities are: Pat Rafter, Lleyton Hewitt, Kim Clijsters, John Newcombe, Ken Rosewall, Andrew Florent, Andrew Kratzman, Josh Eagle, Kim Warwick, Kristine Radford-Kunce, Mark Edmondson, Peter Tramacchi, Tony Roche and Sandon Stolle who will be teaming up with the likes of Ryan Girdler, Darren Middleton, Livinia Nixon, Steve Leibmann, Samuel Johnson, Adam Spencer, Ben Tari, Dale Lewis, Jay Laga'aia, Kerry O'Brien, Keiren Perkins, Peter Helliar, Peter Overton, Damian de Montemas and more.....

They will also be present at the Charity Dinner tonight (great pics to be expected!? –let’s hope so! ;) ).

Text from the Foundation:

“Don't miss our fantastic black tie Championship Dinner on Friday 22nd November 2002. Mingle with the tennis stars in the spectacular carnival atmosphere which is sure to 'Bring Out the Child in You'.

Monies raised from the 2002 HP Starlight Cup will go towards the upgrading of facilities at the Starlight Express Room Children's Hospital Westmead. As children enter the new room they can forget about their illness for a while as they are transported to a place full of smiles, magic and mayhem!

Since inception, this event has raised over $4 million. All monies raised have helped Starlight to brighten the lives of as many of Australia's seriously ill children and their families through the granting of wishes and providing entertainment both in and out of hospital.”

No pics of anything! The media have been so lazy lately. I saw Kim on TV @ the Starlight Foundation thing, but it was just a shot of everyone and she could barely be seen (all the good footage was of Lleyton and Pat Rafter)

Think nobody has posted this so far...

it's about Kim and Lleyton in his tennis camp in Sydney (week of 18/11-22/11)

from Lleytonland:

A hit with Hewitt

Tuesday, 3 December 2002

How many young tennis players get the chance for a hit with the world's best tennis player? Well, two from the Monaro at least.

Laura Clarke and Phillip Payten-McDonald were almost pinching themselves after a late-November encounter with Lleyton Hewitt in Sydney which will stay in their memories and make for good story-telling for the rest of their lives.

Clarke and Payten-McDonald were invited to take part in the Lleyton Hewitt International Tennis Camp at the Sydney International Tennis Centre at Homebush after lodging successful applications.

The week-long camp gave 84 of Australia's most talented young tennis players the opportunity to rub shoulders with the world's best as well as undergo training from current Davis Cup captain Wally Masur and other professional coaches.

Participants were put through their paces to determine fitness and skills as well as taking part in several lectures and other fun activities, all aimed at improving them as tennis players.

According to Clarke, the importance of good footwork was drilled home at every opportunity.

"Footwork was a main one and just tactics too, match tactics," she said.

Although he was a little bit under the weather, Hewitt visited the players during one meal-time, visiting each table in turn.

Each player was also given the chance to have a light hit with the superstar.

By the end-of-week barbecue, Hewitt's sickness had got the better of him, but who better to attend in his absence than his girlfriend and fellow star player, Kim Clijsters.

Clijsters presented awards to the youngsters and even managed a kiss on the cheek for Payten-McDonald - giving the youngster even more bragging rights.

...

END


He didn't look sick when they were at the Charity Dinner in Sydney at the end of that same week, though...

Kim and Lleyton were at the Adelaide footy club of the Crows today.

Lleyton, a huge fan of this club, was honoured as their number one fan. (link article on their fansite: http://afc.com.au/default.asp?pg=news&spg=display&articleid=68932)

It looks they haven't been on their holidays yet, or are already back from the vacation they said they would take (at the Great Barrier Reef).

If I remember correctly from one of the Belgian newspaper articles in November, Kim's coach and trainer are traveling to Australia on December 16. So if Kim hasn't taken that vacation, she'd better hurry :)

Kim and Lleyton are def. still in Adelaide (looks like it was a brief holiday, or a skipped one alltogether):

in the Australian news today (newspaper The Age) it is reported that Lleyton will receive another honour in Adelaide, at a basketball club this time: he's expected to attend a basketball match at an Adelaide club on the 11th.

And Tine, you're right; it was said that Kim's coach and physio would leave Belgium for Australia on the 16th.

Wise young men follow star west
December 13 2002
By_Linda Pearce



Picture: JOHN FRENCH
Todd Reid is likely to benefit from practising with Lleyton Hewitt.

When the invitations to the inaugural Australian Open training camp were distributed earlier this year, Lleyton Hewitt declined, preferring to end his demanding season at home in Adelaide than away at Melbourne Park. That inspired an alternative plan: rather than bring Hewitt to the camp, why not take part of the camp, Mohammed-like, to Hewitt?

Over the next fortnight, the beneficiaries of practice sessions with the world No. 1 will be Wimbledon junior champion Todd Reid and several of his Australian Institute of Sport teammates such as Ryan Henry and Raph Durek.

Reid is expected to spend three days in Adelaide next week, with the balance of the roster to be filled as necessary.

"I think Lleyton really acknowledges the guys' potential, their work ethic, so he wants to integrate them into his training over the next couple of weeks," Tennis Australia's head of men's tennis, Peter Johnston, said yesterday. "He's more comfortable staying in Adelaide at the moment, and we respect that, so we've tried to find a way to work that in."

The link is John McCurdy, Hewitt's former Octagon agent and now the head AIS coach, while Hewitt's coach, Jason Stoltenberg, has co-driven the idea. Its genesis came at Wimbledon, where the six Australians in the boys' singles rotated on warm-up duty as Hewitt swept the senior event.

"It just follows on a little bit from Wimbledon, and Lleyton's keen to do it, really," McCurdy said. "He's got a real interest in the young guys that are coming up. It's just a great and quite unique opportunity for us, so we're taking advantage of it. He's No. 1 in the world, so it's just a great experience for some of these young boys to spend some time with him."


Stoltenberg recently arrived in Adelaide to oversee Hewitt's summer preparations, the 21-year-old's four-week break having included his acceptance of the No. 1 ticket-holder duties for Adelaide's Crows and 36ers, some charity appearances and a north Queensland holiday with girlfriend Kim Clijsters.

Hewitt's potential doubles partner Mark Philippoussis, with Wayne Arthurs and Todd Woodbridge, has been hitting regularly with the institute players in recent days, further accelerating their learning curve. Reid, for example, was so struck by the big server's immense power that he apparently could not fathom how Philippoussis could not be the best player in the world.

Andrew Ilie is due to join the Melbourne Park workout soon, having returned to the match court at a Bangkok exhibition against Asian sensation Paradorn Srichaphan. Arthurs, too, has taken a long break, capitalising on the six-week window opened by Australia's failure to reach the Davis Cup final for the first time in four years.

"We've had a chance to have a little bit of an off-season," said Arthurs, the Australian No. 2, whose best Open result was a third-round appearance in 2001.

"I've put in a lot of hard work off the court, rather than actually playing, and I feel a lot fitter and better prepared for this Aussie Open than I have the last couple of years."

~|Naomi|~
Dec 13th, 2002, 12:49 AM
Yep Kim went with him. I watched the whole game on fox sports just to see them & I hate basketball!!, they showed Kim and Lleyton at the beginning sitting in the stands together and Lleyton was eating and Kim was drinking a coke but I think it was Lleytons cause she gave it back to him. Hayden and Jason were sitting in the row in front of them with a little boy who I thik must of been Jason's son anyway I think Kim was giving the boy more attention than Lleyton!!! The TV the interviewed Lleyton and he looked so small next to the commentators who are former basketball players. In the interview they asked Lleyton all the normal stuff, but he spoke about Kimmie without even being asked! They asked him when he was moving out of home and Lleyton said that he has some land with nothing on it but that his Girlfriend is from Belgium so he spends a bit of time there throughout the year too. And then Steve Carfino asked Lleyton if there was any wedding announcement and Lleyton said there was nothing he could announce tonight, they showed a close up of Kim while Lleyton was talking about his house and how she is from Belgium & one of the commentators looked down at some screen in front of them and said "and there is Kim" so Lleyton like full looked at the screen it was so cute:) but it was only a quick shot of Kim so I think he would of missed it.They also showed Kim and Lleyton standing and clapping at the end of the game, Kim looked to be really enjoying the game! Oh and yeah Glynn was there but he wasn't sitting near Kim & LLeyton, but I don't know if Cherilyn was there.

Anyway I hope that fills all you guys in who couldn't see the game

This isn't really news from Australia but I don't know where else to put it.

It's just that Kim will play doubles with Ai Sugiyama in Antwerp and it also reportedly says on Ai's website (in Japanese) that Kim and Ai will team up in 2003. So given that Ai has entered Sydney I wouldn't be surprised to see the 2 play there and at the Aussie!

I think this will be good for Kim as she can learn a lot from Ai who is a great doubles player, so it should improve Kim's net game a lot:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Because she thinks she may not play with Justine. The first thime they planned it, Kim was sick and the second time, justine broke her pink so, she just think that they may not play doubles.
