Kim and Justine are in opposite halves of the Munch draw.

KIM <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" /> starts off against Elena Dementieva.

JUSTINE <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" /> starts off against Anke Huber.

Okay, it's not till next week, and kim has Luxembourg to win first! But I figured, why not get started cheering early??? <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Justine beat Anke twice this year (twice pretty difficult), so that should be feasible (if she doesn't play like against Iroda, that is <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> ). Then probably revenge against Serena....<br />Kim has to take revenge for Championships loss against Elena last year!!

O yeah, and this tournament could be pretty decisive for the Belgian sportswoman of the year award!! If one of both gets to semifinals or finals (and the other doesn't), she should be the favourite, me thinks. Or did I miss anything?

hmm then Kim will win. Anke Huber is playing great at the moment, so it will be extremely difficult. A second round against Serena is even worse.

May be they give the price to Justine, because Kim already won it last year?

There's still a chance Serena withdraws, but of course Justine needs to get past Anke first. And that will be tough, looking at the current form of both players.

I like Kim's chances, she will take revenge against Elena for last year, the second round probably Tauziat, who's really good indoor. But Kim will be better so I'm hoping for a semi final against Lindsay.

Good luck Kim and Justine! <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />

About the sportswoman of the year award, I expect Kim to win it again. Justine didn't have really great results after Wimbledon, she did reach two finals, but Kim won two tournaments. Justine was better at the beginning of the year, Kim's better at the end of the year.

I do expect Justine to win the award for sportpersonality of the year.

Justine and Kim both start their campaigns on WEDNESDAY.

I hope they are already in Munich getting used to the court surface and conditions! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

What are your predictions? I think Kim will reach the SF and Justine will reach the QF... <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

I expect Justine to win first round, then she will probably lose against Serena.

I think Kim will lose in first round against Dementieva.

and I hope I'm too pessimistic because this wouldn't be a good result for our girls!!!!!!!!

GO GIRLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A bit of wishful thinking: Justine wins final against Kim <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

I say SF for both Kim and Justine! (Though at Tennisweek.com I did say Justine would lose to Serena; I have changed my mind!)

Good luck Kim and Justine on wednesday! If Kim plays like she has been playing lately, she should be able to reach the semi's and who knows what happens than? I hope Justine finds her form again and beats Huber so she can start against Serena with good confidence!<br />Show the world your best tennis girls!!<br />It's cool we'll probably see all of their matches live on canvas!<br />Also good luck to Xavier an Christophe in Rome this week and congrats for their wins in the first round : Christophe bt Wayne Ferreira in 2 sets, coming from qualies and Xavier beat Rusedski also in two! Good luck against Corretja and Clement!
