My feeling is that Justine will get slightly more support. The Belgian fans will probably favour Kim a little but will applaud both players' winners. The French fans will probably favour Justine, though, as she's the French-speaker and the one who beat the #1 seed. Hopefully, it'll be a nice atmosphere on Saturday, and neither player will be in tears afterwards because of the crowd.
Allez Justine and take the title! Make it a good match, Kim!

Agreed. Justine. Doesn't she come from the wallon region unlike Clijsters or something?

Yes, Justine comes from the French-speaking part of Belgium, whereas Kim comes from the Flemmis part of Belgium.
Kim is well-liked at Roland Garros, so I think the crowd will support both players. After the first set, they will support the player that lost the first set.
