How You Became a Kim fan?

I dont know whethers theres already a thread like this.... but i was wondering how everyone became fans of Kim.
For me it was through been a supporter of Lleyton. Ive been a supporter of his since seeing him for the first time playing davis cup in 2000, and i suppose my interest about kim came about because of that. Though now im probly more of a lleyki, supporting both of them

I became a fan when i saw Kim playing the final of Roland Garros 2001 against Capriati. That was a match!!! Unbelievable how she fight..Nobody expected her to get to the finals and then she did it soooooooo well!! And from that day on, i became a huge Kimfan...

It was because of Lleyton, I think. Well, I didn't watch much tennis when I was 'young' until I saw Lleyts when I was like in year 4 or something and loved him since.

So yeah I watched tennis and dunno why and dunno when, I watched Kim on tv too and she was 'the' player I supported out of any match she played in - like other matches I watched.

But she was pretty different to the other players in another sort of way, I guess...you know what i mean

And dunno why and when (not long after), I started to like Kim as well. I never knew that they were dating back then

But when I found out, I was like, I'm gonna love Lleyki forever!

Well actually Kim asked me personally, because she didnt think a lot of people were going to like her and she already knew that everyone couldnt STAND Lleyton and his moody ways ....

almost the same story
i remeber when i started to like LLeyton - it was at US Open'01 but i don't remember about Kim. ( i just know that it was more than 3 years ago and i even remember what she was wearing then but i don't know what tournament was ) She was just the player I supported out of any match she played in but i wasn't a fan of her
that time i had ES in english but i didn't understand anything so i didn't know that K&LL were dating I found out that only last March... and the same story end

I was a fan of Lleyton first, so I only knew Kim as the 'girlfriend of Lleyton' after seieng them play the mixed doubles final of Wimbledon. But, then I decided to watch the French Open semi 2001 when Kim was down and out to JHH, and was stunned at her comeback, fight and desire So from that day forward I became a Kim fan

for me, everything started back in 2000 when I saw Kim winning in Leipzig against Likovsteva. I already heard about Kim before, even saw here playing an ITF-tournament and once supporting the Belgium Davis Cup-team in 1998, but only then I realised what a great player she was and especially how nice and friendly she was!

COME ON KIM!

Thanks for everything Kim!!!

I became a Kimfan in 1999

The first time I heard about her was on the news, during Wimbledon! Apparently, a Belgian 16-year-old girl had beaten one of the seeds (Amanda Coetzer) I was shocked! A girl of only 1 year older than me was in the 4th round of Wimbledon! The following day(s ) I watched Kim-Steffi Graf & since then I got hooked

I started to follow her matches since October 2000 after the Filderstadt tournament where she was beaten by Hingis. I thought she was talented and very modest and she's got the cutest boyfriend and then I became a fan after a short while

I watched Kim play the final of RG 200. At that time, I wasn't a tennis fan. I only followed the ranking of her if it was reported in the newspaper(HK newspaper rarely talks about tennis). Later, the newspaper talked about Graf&Agassi gave birth to their baby and something about Kim & Lleyton. That's how I found out they are a couple.But I only became a Lleyki last years' January.
