Arrow 2004 Kim articles and news (non-tournament related)

Let's just classify this under "Erm, yeah, sure" Think Debbie might be taking her self-promotion a little too seriously

Trendy way to carry the message

Los Angeles Times

HOLLYWOOD

In an office above an L.A. strip mall, the floor is covered with swag. Tumi luggage, Armani cologne, stacks of Sebastian Trucco makeup, Cricket Cola cases, piles of wee baby T-shirts and CD cases, baskets full of hair-care products, towers of Altoid tins and Balance bars and coffee mugs and surfboard wax.

This is the newly opened West Coast office of the New York-based Buzz Bags, and items covering the floor are mostly remnants of their latest big project: gift bags for the Women's Tennis Association. Championship Finals. Participants received, among most of the items mentioned above, a $2,500 gift certificate for laser hair removal by a top Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon.

"They went berserk," says Debbie Flesch, who along with Sandy Reed runs the L.A. office. "[Winner] Kim Clijsters took one look at the bag and I thought she was going to cry. The woman had just won a million dollars and a Porsche and she was just delirious over our bag.

I think we all know how crazy Kim is about (hand)bags. I once read an article that mentioned the amount of bags Kim has. I don't remember the exact number, but it was huge

Sarah

Henin-Hardenne, Clijsters Garner ITWA Honors

The International Tennis Writers Association (ITWA) named Belgium's Justine Henin-Hardenne its 2003 Player of the Year, while fellow Belgian Kim Clijsters was named the ASAP Best Ambassador for the Sport of Tennis on Thursday during its annual professional tennis awards.
Henin-Hardenne was a runaway winner in the women's category, while Clijsters tied American Serena Williams for second place.

"While Serena Williams was nails-tough at Australian Open and Wimbledon, Justine's remarkable triumph in Paris and her incredible run on U.S. hardcourts pushed her over the top," said ITWA's Matthew Cronin, the Managing Editor of Inside Tennis Magazine and owner of ********************."She showed remarkable resiliency and improvement all year long."

Clijsters was a popular choice in the "Ambassador" category and was followed in the voting by Henin-Hardenne and France's Amelie Mauresmo. Also receiving votes were Martina Navratilova, Ai Sugiyama, Lindsay Davenport, Patty Schnyder and Monica Seles.

"There isn't a nicer person in tennis or a more cooperative one," said Cronin. "Kim consistently goes the extra mile to help further popularize the sport and is a more than deserving winner of our inaugural award."

The "Ambassador" category was designed to recognize cooperative players who spend time attempting to work with the media to promote the sport to the public.

On the men's side, ATP star Roger Federer of Switzerland took top honors as Player of the Year and Morocco's Younes El Aynaoui won the ASAP Best Ambassador for the Sport of Tennis award.

The winners will be presented with Montblanc pens at next week's Australian Open.

---------


So Kim gets another award for her personality and character

Hewitt bids for Delta's charm
January 18, 2004 - 12:00AM
The Sun-Herald

With a decidedly British air to the evening, Sydney's premier party crowd at the Barefoot and Black Tie cocktail party at Palm Beach again kicked up its heels for charity.

Setting the pace was tennis star Lleyton Hewitt, who won the bidding by phone with $16,000 for an 18-carat gold charm he bought for his fiancee, Belgian tennis star Kim Clijsters.

The jewellery made in the shape of a miniature envelope was adapted from an original design by Louis Vuitton's Paris-based creative director Marc Jacobs with the help of singer Delta Goodrem.

Goodrem has struck up a friendship with Hewitt's Davis Cup teammate Mark Philippoussis.

Topping the VIP guest list was British model Jodie Kidd.

In Australia as a member of the British Women's Polo Team, Kidd at least knew a few faces in the crowd with countrymen such as club entrepreneur Robert Gorman and social prince Oscar Humphreys among the big names.

The chic fund-raiser, which marks the start of Sydney's social calendar, has set a standard in partying since it began three years ago.

Louis Vuitton, the event's chief sponsor, has been so impressed by Sydney's pedigree in the party department it has considered rolling out the concept for its rich and famous clientele in Malibu and St Tropez.

While it may be a marketing triumph for LV, the night's biggest winner is the Cure Cancer Australia charity, which last night aimed to top the $250,000 pay-cheque from 2003.

With the battle of the TV airwaves looming as the fierce fight of 2004, Seven's chief executive David Leckie led his channel's early charge, supported by glamour vet Katrina Warren and newsreader Anne Fulwood.

Lleyton definately doesn't mind spending up big on Kim

Sligthly irrelevant, but I guess something die-hard Kim fans like to know

In a daily Belgian tv-show Man Bites Dog (Man Bijt Hond) there is a little segment where they interview people in their cars about who they are and what they are doing in their car at that moment. So last week, they interviewed this guy in a van who said he was on his way to Justine Henin's coach' house to install a waterbed. He said that the girls got a waterbed from a sponsor for participating in the Fed Cup (I believe). Anyway, he said Kim is the proud owner of two waterbeds. Let's just hope lleyton doesn't get seasick

Lunch date with Kim wins hearts
February 6 2004
Shepparton News


As if standing on court with Australian Open finalist Kim Clijsters wasn't enough, Shepparton's Emily Fowler also had lunch with the world No. 2.
Fowler joined Shepparton's Ayden Murdoch, Nick Hamilton and Natalie Frizzell as ballkids at this years Australian Open and while they all have stories to tell, Fowler's lunch date pretty much tops them all.

"It was awesome," Fowler said.

"She just came over and sat down at my table.

"She said `do you mind if I sit down' and we're like `no'."

And what does a super star like Clijsters eat in between sets?

"She had some hot chips," Fowler said.

Murdoch was also impressed with Clijsters.

He was lucky enough to be chosen to be a ballkid for one of her matches.

"She actually said thank you," Murdoch said.

"Which was quite nice, not many people do."

And while all four enjoyed their time, there was some pressure on them to perform.

"The other ballkids are supportive if you get cut or get a bad court," Frizzell said.

"You got nervous when the assessors were watching you.

"When you made a mistake you were like `oh gosh they saw that'."

But standing in the heat all day did take its toll - Murdoch was on court from 8.45 am until 11.45 pm on one day.

"It got really hot in the sun," Frizzell said.

"I had it easy just standing up the back," Fowler said.

When they weren't on court they were in the changerooms having a ball.

"Shoe cricket is the way to go," Hamilton said.

"It kills the boredom."

All four said they would try out again next year with the hope of gaining the elusive centre court come finals time.
