Is the news all over the fronts of paper, at the beginning of news reports?

Is it the big news of today, or is it not that big a deal?

Consider this:

Yesterday, the new parliament was installed, a former colony is in serious troubles (riots), there were some letters containing toxic send to various ministers & ambassades...

And the main news was:
HENIN & CLIJSTERS play the final.

Once again: there is no Kim-Justine rivalry. You non-Belgians invent this. I watched Kim's match on the Flemish TV and Justine's on Walloon TV (since Kim won when I watched Flemish TV, I thought I had to watch Justine's on Walloon TV; just stupid superstition of mine - it worked though). Flemish TV is very supportive towards Justine and the same for Walloon TV towards Kim.

Yes, they are both supportive for Kim and Justine. I lost count on the orgasms Karl vannieuwkerken, our commentator had!:o:p
He must be pretty exhausted....

BTW, hope some are a bit satisfied with the press coverage of Justine??;)

Karl Vannieuwkerken said "I propose Steven Martens (who will be co-hosting the match) takes Justine's side, and I'll take Kim's, 'cause it really is very hard for us to choose sides..."

The all-Belgian final is compared to Eddy Merckx and his five times winning the tour de france and the Belgian national football team's run at Mexico '86 WC, so yeah it's big news here ;)

Yes!!
you're a lucky country Belgians so enjoy Saturday as much as you can and may the best win ( I have a favourite between these two but I don't like any of them so..:o)
I wish we had had the opportunity of a ASV- COnchi RG final :sad: sadly fate avoided it.....
And please no matter who wins don't start bitching about the winner or loser, do you?.....these girls will do their best but only one can win

I think (and hope) that I speak for most Belgians when I say we're proud of both of them, so indeed: there's no use in "bitching about the winner or loser", one will be silver, one will be gold, that's a tremendous achievement..!

Go girls!!!! :kiss:
