View Full Version : Kim's year-end honours list

Nov 20th, 2002, 04:40 PM
As we could expect, the nominations for honours are commencing in Belgium. :)

Kim has been nominated for the Sports Woman of the Year today (she is a permanent value on that list ;)) She might succeed herself yet once again! :bounce:

(btw Justine Henin has been nominated again as well)

Sis Elke was nominated in the category Promising Youngster.

I have a feeling that this thread might become a long one. :D
Note to Lei: keep some evenings free, you might have to collect trophies again! ;)

Last year Justine could have won it too in my opinion, but this year Kim is my clear fave to win it! :)
Kirsten Flipkens is my fave for most promising youngster! :) (she is nominated isn't she? I thought I read it somewhere but I'm not sure about it)

Nov 28th, 2002, 08:37 AM
The people who visited Clijsters City last year will remember that Kim won the vote in Knack's (a Flemish leading magazine) and VTM's (a big Flemish TV channel) annual poll 'People of the Year', category 'Sports'.

Big surprise :p she is nominated again this year!
She has 4 competitors for this title: Stefan Everts, Kim Gevaert, Johan Museeuw and Kathleen Smet.

I have the feeling that 'our' Kim :) might be the favourite, again.

What all fans have to do is simple: JUST VOTE! You even can win something (citytrips to Paris, movie tickets, MTV CD's,...) , so

to all Kim (C!!! ;)) fans: do your duty and vote ASAP!

How? 1) if you have a Knack access code: go to Knack's website www.knack.be Click on 'Mensen van het Jaar 2002'.
2) if you're no Knack reader, you should be able to vote through VTM's website. So far I haven't found any info there, think that the info still has to come up there (as it did last year too).

!Votes close on Dec. 2 (midnight local Belgian time).

Nov 28th, 2002, 09:19 AM
The text that comes along with Kim's presentation as nominee in Knack, is the following:

Source: Knack, Nov. 20, 2002

(translation by Ingrid)

'Doing better than the miracle year of 2001 was difficult. The tennis wonder from Bree finally did manage to do exactly that.
The 19 year old Limburg girl already proves at the Australian Open that she is ready for a new super season. She only meets her superior in Jennifer Capriati at the semis.

Kim is ranked third in March for a while, the highest ranking for a Belgian player ever. But that nasty shoulder had emerged then already. The first sign of physical wear and tear?

The chronical shoulder pain becomes a regular excuse on lesser days. She now early bites the dust in Grand Slams she used to perform at in such a fantastic way during 2001. Roland Garros; third round out against Fernandez. Wimbledon: 2nd round exit through Likhovtseva.

Midway the season: change of coach.The long-time collaboration between Kim and Carl Maes ends even before Wimbledon.
In his place appears Marc Dehous, a coach from the Flemish Tennis federation. The physiotherapist from Ghent, Evelyne Coppens, will from now on travel with Kim.

There is improvement at the US Open. Only a strong Amélie Mauresmo is able to keep Kim from the quarters. But above all: the shoulder is healed!
This brings two victories in October (Filderstadt and Luxembourg). Together with her win earlier in the year in Hamburg, beating Venus Williams in the finals, she brings her result to 9 victories, with still one tournament to play; the Masters, the unofficial world championships.

There she reaches a new height in her still young career. Serena Williams, the current world number one, proves to be unable to counter the power and the precision of "our" Kim.
Clijsters hits herself with 7/5 and 6-3 into Belgian tennis history.

Dec 2nd, 2002, 07:27 AM
As to be expected, and just like last year, Kim's name is popping up for the annual nominations and rewards in Belgium :)

Kim is also nominated for the 'Sport Personality of the Year' in Flanders.

She lost the election last year due to the jury vote that went to IOC president Rogge, although she had won the vote of the public with a great majority of votes.

The first voting round starts right now, so all Flemish Kim fans: do your duty= vote for Kim! :D

Dec 14th, 2002, 02:20 PM
Op het congres van de VTV in het Vlaams Parlement werd bekendgemaakt dat Kim Clijsters won voor Xavier Malisse. Els Callens werd derde. Voor Clijsters is het al de vierde keer op rij dat ze verkozen wordt tot VTV-speelster van het jaar.

Bij de beloften ging de 16-jarige Kirsten Flipkens met de titel lopen. Zij haalde het voor Elke Clijsters en Niels Desein.

For the sportspersonality of the year, they introduce the nominees with a letter. Here's Kimmies:

Dear Kim,
So, you are nominated for sportpersonality of the year 2002. It would only have been news, if you weren't nominated. I just mean: you are nineteen years old and a worldchampion in a sport played all over the world. It's only possible if you are blessed with tons of talent and no less attitude.
I could also mention your semi-final in Australia, or maybe your great victories in the finals against Venus (Hamburg) and Hantuchova (Filderstadt). But it's only your fault, we don't mention that. You shouldn't have swept Serena off the court at the Masters in LA.
But personality is just so much more than playing and winning, personality lies in details. I just think about the watch you gave to Kirsten Flipkens, for her great tournament at the US Open, your true happiness when you got the little puppy in Charleroi.
And I also think about the meeting with the press in Luxemburg, when you talked so openly about simply everything, even Lleyton, and you stayed for more than an hour, just telling the grumpy official 'it's okay', while she was getting desperate to get you out of there...
I can only admire you for the way you can cope with the pressure.
Even when you are about to lose, you give everything you have. And your private life? I just can imagine carefully what it is to be Kim Clijsters and having a relationship with Lleyton Hewitt. Are you really on your own, ever? Is there even a place where no-one knows you? Your happiness, devotion and your carefree-attitude, maybe that's the biggest talent you have!
Don't lose it when you start winning grandslams. And.... Just stay Belgian, no matter how much those Aussies want you!

I know it's nothing new, but it's for the non-sport freaks, so they can get to know the biggest sportsperonalities in Belgium.

Dec 16th, 2002, 06:57 PM
thanks elke :)!!
ooh kim is just the best!

Dec 16th, 2002, 10:06 PM

Ther's an interview with Marc Dehous, it's pretty long, I think I will be finished by Friday, bec I 've a lot of work, but I 'm working on it.

An interesting note: the first meeting between Kim and her coach wasn't that friendly....
Kim was at the trainingschool in Wilrijk, and Marc was a new coach there, and he sent Kim from the training because she was throwing with her racket!!

Dec 18th, 2002, 10:36 PM
Erm....Fnack = Knack? ;)

:) Kim :bounce:

Dec 19th, 2002, 08:41 AM
Wie krijgt de trofee? 17/12/02
Vrijdag 20 december weten we wie Kim Clijsters en Stefan Everts opvolgen als sportvrouw en sportman van het jaar. Al lijkt de de kans groot dat beiden hun titel verlengen (lets hope so ;)).


Kim Clijsters begon, gehinderd door een schouderblessure, aarzelend aan het seizoen, maar zette een indrukwekkende eindsprint neer. Vooral haar zege in de Masters stak erbovenuit.

Collega-tennister Justine Henin-Hardenne sloot het tennisseizoen af als het nummer vijf van de wereld, maar was vergeleken met Clijsters duidelijk de mindere.

Kim of Kim? (foto photonews)

De meeste concurrentie mag Clijsters daarom verwachten van naamgenote Kim Gevaert. Gevaert pakte twee keer zilver op het EK en is een naam waar rekening mee wordt gehouden in de sprinterswereld. Die prestatie werd alvast bekroond met de Vlaamse Reus en het Vlaamse Sportjuweel.

Dec 19th, 2002, 02:33 PM

there's a photo of Elke with the trophy in the newspaper but I don't have a scanner :p but I found already one:

Dec 21st, 2002, 09:07 AM
You know what: You probably all know that Elke took the price, 'cause Kimmie is in Adelaide. But the funny thing is: Lei had to pay Elke 500 Euro to do so!! That's what the newspaper said this morning! Otherwise she wouldn't have done it, she was too nervous !!!
Funny isn't it ?? :)

Dec 21st, 2002, 09:19 AM
Congratulations Kimmie, you really deserved it !!!
Yeah if it's true the story of the 500 euros is pretty funny !!!



Dec 21st, 2002, 09:32 AM
Another one :


Seems that Elke continues to benefits from Kim's deal :rolleyes:

Now, Elke is sponsored by Fila, so I guess that Kim didn't changed to Fila!!

I think Lei said to Fila, you take Elke otherwise Kim will leave to Yonex!!

And it's works lol

Lei is such a good manager!!!

yesterday on 'mediamadammen on VT4 :rolleyes:' was a little interview with elke and with lei, they gave many people who were there (for the sportwoman and men of the year) a trophy, they give Kim gevaert a trophy for the most beautiful legs in belgian sport etc.; so they went to Elke, and said that they would love to give a trophy to Kim & Lleyton for the best sport couple of the year, etc.. and they asked Elke if she also had a boyfriend and she said 'who knows? ok ok.. yes, Maarten and she said she would try to get that trophy also etc.. than they went to Lei, but it looked like he was running away from the camera, and they gave him a trophy for the best sportdad of the year, and they asked him if they could go to Kim in Australia for an interview but he said 'no, it's even difficult for me to know where Kim is now etc.. ' and they asked him why he was almost running away from the camera, and he said that he hate all the questions, and the reactions from the press etc.. ' ok that's it :p it was fun to see them again on television it was so long ago .. uuuu.. I hope you can understand a bit of what i said sorry for my English :wavey:

Dec 24th, 2002, 08:50 PM
Congratulations Kim on another trophy. Who else could they have given it to? Kim's Belgium's pride. Well, Justine as well, she's just bad luck that Kim is always one step ahead.
