I watched a report on Munich today on German TV and the commentator said that yesterday Arantxa had lost to her best friend Kim Clijsters.

Is this true, are they best friends? I know they are good friends cause last year during Davis Cup final both were sitting in the crowd (cheering for the opposing team <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> ) and when Arantxa saw Kim she went to her and they exchanged kisses and started talking and laughing together. And this week in Munich after Kim beat Arantxa, they were very friendly, almost cosy towards eachother at the net.

<br />And then another thing which will make Arantxa's fans happy : she said in an interview for German TV that she's not yet thinking about retirement and that she will play for a few more years! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I was sitting close by last year at the Davis Cup final, and they seemed to know each other real well and were having a laugh. Let´s hope they fancy teaming up for a doubles partnership, they´d be tough to beat.

Yeah they will! That match was pretty damn exciting!! All those overheads and angles. That was the first time I'd actually sat down to watch both players play an actual match. I've wanted to watch Kim Clijsters for a while, but I've always missed it, so last night was the first time I saw it. It was such an exciting match for me because both were playing so well and returning all the balls. I especially liked the one point where Arantxa had to hit 3 overheads before putting the ball away. I was like, "Wow! Now that's defense!" Arantxa and Kim are now two of my favorite players to watch now. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I think Kim is friends with most players too. They obvious are two nice persons so no wonder that they are friends <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I'd say that almost every player is a good friend of Kim... she's just so sweet...

I would *love* to see these two play some doubles together, I think people are right in saying they'd make a really formidable team.

I know Arantxa is very good friends with Monica Seles and was with Mary Joe Fernandez but I don't think she is popular with everyone, not least b/c of her well, certain on court habits shall we say <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> !

I am not surprised, Arantxa is just the nicest person on tour! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> and she's friendly towards everyone... off court! LOL she can be very intense ON court - - although, if you get past the intimidating of line judges and stuff, she's not too bad on court either <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> hehehe.

Eh, Jonny? <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

She's truly the nicest person off court. And even nicer to her fans. To any fan of Arantxa out there, next time, go say hi. Even if you expect the best from her, you'll still be MORE than pleasantly surprised.
