Lethal Brissle. Belgian Style.

Posted by gauloises1 on January 10, 2010

So the ‘dream final’ in Brisbane between Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin … happened. And wasn’t all that much of a dream, actually. Except in the sense that it was long and confusing and sweaty and full of inexplicable reversals and ended with a sense of disappointment rather than resolution. So a lot like most of my dreams.

Kim Clijsters d. Justine Henin, 63 46 76(6)

If she was wearing five layers and desperately trying not to drop a cigarette, this would be an accurate impression of me trying to walk down the street this week.

Another great week for Kim, although her tennis at times was less than convincing, but she got the trophy. As for Justine and the Henback / Comebackhandening, after such a long lay-off I thought she looked in pretty good shape, despite having lost the final.

I don’t think she agrees.

Sisters, sisters …

We get it. They’re cute.

Seriously though, they’re cute.

Starting off the year in style.
