Kim at Queen's

If you want to know what Kim is doing in this ATP tournament while Lleyton is defending his title:

Clijsters Claims Wives and Girlfriends Competition

Kim Clijsters is a winner at the Stella Artois Championships after an impressive display of tennis at the Queen's Club.

For those of you wondering how a world number five woman player can taste glory at an ATP men's event, the reason is that the Belgian, here to support her boyfriend Lleyton Hewitt, had entered the annual wives and girlfriends tournament at the Stella Artois.

Clijsters toned her play down a little to keep the event social, but still did enough to join Scott Draper's girlfriend Jessica Kersten as the winners of the event.

Also taking part were Jan-Michael Gambill's mother Diane, Bob Bryan's girlfriend Jennifer Kuhl, and Lleyton Hewitt's mother Cherylin.

The event was organised by Felicity Bernstein, the widow of former Stella Artois tournament director, Clive Bernstein.

"This is the 25th year that we have held the event," she said. "It was started by Rosemary Gullikson and it was so popular that Clive wanted to run it every year."

Arn, I don't know about a draw or anything of that kind.
Btw, BBC had some coverage of this event yesterday.
They showed Kim, Lleyton's mother, JM Gambill's mother,... it all looked very relaxed.

Kimmy is too nice, to keep her level down

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
