Dec. 7 • Besides winning the WTA Player of the Year Award a week ago, Kim has also won quite a few awards/trophies in the past weeks. Indeed, she has been awarded 2 Flemish awards, making her rather indisputably the best Flemish athlete of the year.
First of all, at the end of November Kim was awarded the Tennis Performance of the Year award by the VTV, the Flemish (Dutch-speaking Belgium) Tennis Federation. Other nominees were Yanina Wickmayer and the Belgium Davis Cup team.
On 3 December Kim also won the so-called 'Flemish Giant', an award given by Flemish sports journalists, crowning the best Flemish athlete of the year.
And it may be just the beginning! Indeed, on 19 December will take place what probably is the most important Belgian sport ceremony of the year, the Sportgala, crowning a.o. the best Belgian sportsman and sportswoman of the year. Kim is in with a chance to win the award, together with sportswomen such as Justine Henin, Yanina Wickmayer,
