Justine more popular than Kim in Belgium

Justine-Hennin-Hardene (JHH) has surprassed her fellow countryman, Kim Clijsters, in popularity throughout the country since her Roland Garros victory and recent Acura win.

Clijsters was the #1 favorite in Belgium for a few years, but after her meltdown against SERENA WILLIAMS in the Australian Open and her rumored defection to that same country to be with her boyfriend, the tide has clearly turned towards HH, even though she is a much more introvert personality than Clijsters.

With the impending title of #1 coming to Clijsters, this will add even more pressure to a player who will be out to try to prove her critics wrong in their claims that she may not be the most worthy player to hold that title, especially in light that she is not the best female player in the world, as the WILLIAMS still dominater her, but she also is not the best player in her home country of Belgium as well.

Clijsters will have a lot to prove at the upcoming Open as to how she will hold up at the top spot.

I think it's true that many Belgians now also know Justine but and that she's more popular now but if she's the most popular ... can't say ...

I think it's clear Kim is more popular in the dutch-speaking part of Belgium and Justine in the french-speaking part of Belgium...

I went to both Fed Cup-meetings in Bree (dutch) and Charleroi (french)...
The support for Kim in Bree was much more than Justine's... In Charleroi Justine was the most supported...

I think Kim had a great welcome in Charleroi, a better than Justine in Bree. But remeber that it was the first match in Belgium for Justine after RG.

I think Justine has a lot of new fans ... just look at this pic after RG

Half of the hall in Bree was filled with family of Kim.
