oh that's great news:)

Dehous nieuwe trainer van Clijsters (02/07/02)

Kim Clijsters heeft een nieuwe trainer. Marc Dehous traint de Limburgse gedurende 1 jaar.

Vader Lei Clijsters meldde liet aan het persagentschap Belga weten dat Dehous zijn functie zowat een week voor de start van de US Open, toernooi dat op 26 augustus op Flushing Meadow begint, opneemt.

Marc Dehous is trainer van de Vlaamse Tennisvereniging VTV en verving begin 2000 al Carl Maes gedurende een maand. Hij won toen met Clijsters het toernooi van Hobart.

De 19-jarige Kim Clijsters en Carl Maes gingen op 12 juni in alle vriendschap uiteen na een samenwerking die meer dan zes jaar duurde. Nieuwe en andere interesses voor de tennistrainer waren de aanleiding voor "de vroegtijdige breuk". En onze nummer vijf van de wereld vond eveneens dat "een nieuwe wending in haar tennisbegeleiding mogelijk" was.

Voor het toernooi in Wimbledon trok Clijsters de Oostenrijker Harald Mair aan maar werd al in de tweede ronde uitgeschakeld door de Russische Elena Likhovtseva.

They worked together at the beginning of 2000, Kim won Hobart then btw and played at the Australian Open, as Carl Maes had to stay in Belgium because his wife was expecting a baby. Prior to 2000, Kim was coached by Mark when she started in the futures and sattelites.

Mark also coached Els Callens in the past, but only for a brief period.

He is not a top coach from the circuit, but he is trusted by the Clijsters family. He has been a coach of Elke when she entered the Flemish Tennis School at Wilrijk too.

He has quited his job as a coach at the Flemish Tennis Association (VTV) and is going to work with Kim for one year as of the mid of August.
