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.

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 :eek:, what a performance :worship:'

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. :mad:

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 :mad:

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!

French-speaking commentators tend to be more for Justine if she's playing against Kim, and I think it's a normal thing: Justine is more known in Wallonie basically because she speaks French and not Flemish, and in the contrary Kim is more known in Flanders because she speaks Flemish and not French.
As simple as that! It's human isn't it, to favour the girl who lives next door...

And you know what, commentators and journalists are human :angel:

In fact the whole story is very "simple". I met a lot of those journalistst and spoke to them.
They have this idea that Kim sells in Flanders and Justine sells in the southern part of our country. They write accordingly: today no one cares about objective news, it's all about selling those silly papers !!!

I've tried to convince some of my point of view (I have to admit I'm not quite objective either) but I gave up the effort. It was useless...

For example: some journalist told me (and I quote): "In fact I like Justine's way of playing more than Kim's, but.. I can't sell a Dutch newspaper by writing about that, so.. on paper I'll have to be in favour of Kim"

There will be examples of the opposite too, I believe.

I just hope that the real fans are way beyond this kind of commercial thinking and stop believing some of their blow-ups. In Belgium there are no tabloids, they tell us. I - personally - have serious doubts !! Perhaps we just call it newspapers...

We have this luxuary to have 2 of the best players in the world. One is in favour of Kim, the other in favour of Justine, and some for both of them. That's a fact an no one will change that. I'm just afraid to discover a football-like hooliganism between fans, started without respect for facts, without respect for each other and with as only foundation: rumours and cheap talk.

In fact I'm not supposed to be in a position to write this, but I love this Belgian miracles too much, to keep my mouth shut !

Jemp,

with love (I hope)

Here's a little proof that not ALL Flemish journalists are pro-Kim and anti-Justine:

Artikel uit De Standaard van 11/8/2003:

Clijsters op nummer één
TENNIS

© blg
BRUSSEL - Kim Clijsters is de nieuwe nummer één van het vrouwentennis. Na 58 weken alleenheerschappij moet Serena Williams vandaag troonsafstand doen. De twaalfde nummer één sinds de invoering van de wereldranglijst in 1975 is een Belgische. Nog altijd maar twintig, die Kim Clijsters, maar na haar tornooiwinst vannacht in Los Angeles tegen Lindsay Davenport (6-1, 3-6, 6-1) nu al een monument uit onze sportgeschiedenis. Net als Justine Henin, overigens, ook pas 21. België zit nog voor jaren gebeiteld.


Wat Kim Clijsters en Justine Henin ook aanraken, het verandert in puur goud. Kim zette vorig jaar de eerste mijlpaal neer door de Masters te winnen, Justine Henin antwoordde dit seizoen met die historische Roland Garros-zege in een integraal Belgische finale. En nu dit weer, een Belgische nummer één!

Oudgediende Lindsay Davenport, zelf ex-nummer één en tegenwoordig vijfde op de wereldranglijst, wist hoe laat het was. Voor de match eigenlijk al. Van de laatste zes duels tegen Clijsters won ze er slechts eentje. ,,Het is onvermijdelijk dat Kim heel binnenkort nummer één wordt'', zei ze. En toeval of niet: Clijsters veroverde de koppositie in de stad waar ze in november 2002 ook de Masters won. Los Angeles is Clijsters gunstig gezind.

De WTA-ranking liegt niet. Op basis van de laatste twaalf maanden is Kim Clijsters de beste speelster ter wereld. Niemand won dit seizoen meer tornooien dan Clijsters, niemand verdiende dit jaar meer prijzengeld dan Clijsters, niemand speelt zo veel en zo constant op zo'n hoog niveau als Clijsters.

Het doet er niet toe dat Venus en Serena Williams last hebben van blessures en mopperen dat ze te veel tornooien moeten spelen. Het doet er niet toe dat Clijsters de eerste tennisster uit de geschiedenis is die nummer één wordt zonder een Grand Slam op haar palmares te hebben. De WTA-ranking is ondoorzichtig, maar de klassering drukt wél genadeloos uit hoe sterk je het voorbije jaar gepresteerd hebt.

Kim Clijsters is de terechte nummer één in de meest commerciële, profesionele, mondiale en populaire vrouwensport ter wereld. Een sport waarin bovendien slechts één discipline bestaat. Clijsters is onversneden wereldklasse. En die eerste Grand Slam volgt allicht vanzelf. Net zoals de eerste plaats op de wereldranglijst Justine Henin dit najaar wel eens in de schoot zou kunnen vallen. België op één en twee na de US Open? Het is zo goed als zeker. En het is allemaal pas begonnen.

I think i'll agree to do the commentaries with Domi on AB3! Because the women with her don't know anything about tennis!

3 examples :

1) "oh, Justine did a very difficult shot, she haven't hit it like everybody does, it's an attacking shot no?"... Domi answer : "in fact, she hit a defensive slice backhand"

2) "Why do they change ball, are they too old now?"

3) About the 5 minutes warming-up before the match start "I suppose it's the only training session they have during the day? They are playing a match everyday, so it must be enough!"
