ok this is in Dutch but I'm pleased to translate it for you, at least the important pieces. It's from Kim's Dairy on her site.

Jammer, maar er is geen vete tussen Justine en mij. 07-08-2003

Die zogenaamde ruzie met Justine is fel overdreven. Het klinkt als een cliché, maar het is weer eens opgeblazen. De feiten. Na de wedstrijd vroeg de interviewer zélf naar de time out en of ik iets aan Justine had gezien, want dat ze er toch niet veel last van scheen te hebben. Waarop ik antwoordde dat ze er inderdaad blijkbaar niet veel last van had. Ze speelde toch een erg goede tweede en derde set? Ze scheen voluit te kunnen lopen. Ik heb nooit gezegd dat ze geen blaren had!

The so called fight with Justine is exaggerated. It sounds like a cliché but it has again blown up out of all proportion. The facts: After the match the interviewer asked me about the time out and if I did saw something on Justine, because it didn't seem to bother her that much. I asnwered: Well yeah she didn't seem to suffer a lot by it. She did play a good second and third set? It seems that she could run very weel. I NEVER SAID SHE DIDN'T HADE BLISTERS!

Ik heb Justine na de wedstrijd niet gezien, want ik maakte me klaar voor de dubbelfinale. Maar ik heb in de Players Lounge nog wel met Pierre-Yves (Hardenne, haar man) en de physical trainen zitten nakaarten en lachen. Ik denk niet dat je dat doet als je een slecht gevoel hebt of de ander niet kan luchten. In de Amerikaanse pers is er verder ook geen belang aan gehecht (en die waren er uiteindelijk bij). Blijkbaar wil men in België toch wat graag een vete vinden tussen ons beiden. Dan moet ik iedereen ontgoochelen: die is er niet.

I didn't see Justine after the match because I was preparing for the doubles match. But in the Players Lounge I did talk wit Pierre Yves and the physical trainer about the match and we were laughing. Well you don't do that if you don't feel right about something, do you? In the American press nobody found it important, and they we here!. It seems once again that press in Belgium would like to see us fight Well I'm sorry to disappoint you all ... there isn't a fight.

Justine speelde opnieuw een erg goede wedstrijd. Ik was heel sterk in de eerste set, mijn opslag draaide erg goed, weinig fouten. In de tweede begon die opslag dan te stokken, ik geraakte niet meer aan 100 miles per uur. Ik voelde ook het goede ritme wegglippen. Minder fris, vooral mentaal. En ja, daar zal het dubbelspel wel voor iets tussenzitten. Tegen Capriati verloor ik in Stanford de eerste set. Maar ik vocht terug. Net zoals Justine dat in San Diego deed. En ik voelde dat het niet ging.

Justine played, again, a good match. I was very strong in the first set, good serve, less errors. In the second set my serve didn't go that well anymore, I didn' reach 100 m/h anymore. I felt my good rythm slip awau. Not fresh (?) anymore espacially mental. Andyes, the doubles is a reason for that. against Capriati I lost a set in Stanford. But I fought back. And that's what Justine did in San Diego. I felt it wasn't going very well with me.

Dus moet ik daar mijn conclusies uit trekken en voortaan wat minder dubbelen. Selectiever zijn, de momenten beter uitkiezen. Maar niet laten vallen, daarvoor doe ik dat veel te graag. Normaal zijn de top 10-plaatsen in het dubbel voor de echte specialistes weggelegd. Ik vind het best fijn om daar als niet-specialiste tussen te staan!

If have to take some conclusions at it and will play less doubles in the future. I will select the tournaments more. But I won't stop playing doubles, I like it to much. Normally the top-10 places are for real doublesspecialist. I like being there as a non-specialist!


Please don't start talking about my writingerrors ;)

Doesn't Kim know she's not allowed to say things like that in her public diary? I mean, does she even take the feelings of the press into consideration? Now how will they sell their newspapers? :(

cold-hearted bitch :mad:

Oooh - good comments from Kim. I am happy to see she recognizes her serve went down in the 2nd sets, that she was tired, and that she can be hurt by the doubles. Get it, girl!!

ok...I represent the umm Daily Disco.
Would you mind answering a simple question? It's easy, just pick one of the options:

Do you hate Kim?
  • yes
  • of course
  • why wouldn't I?

Please, do not attempt to tamper with this scientific poll :tape:

She gives me the feeling that she wasn't disappointed about her loss... :(

Hey, what's up? I never thought there was a fight between them. And why are some dissapointed that there isn't a fight, come on! Both Kim and Justine are friendly, mature players, so why would they fight? Stupid press! They just want sensation, pffff.
