    I wonder what other number ones would have given to their fans?



    Clijsters to offer champagne to fans


    AP, Belgium

    Belgian tennis star Kim Clijsters is offering every fan a bottle of Champagne at her Diamond Games home tournament this month to celebrate reaching the No. 1 world ranking.

    "Kim has taken the initiative to thank her fans," tournament organizer Bob Verbeeck said.

    It could be a costly gesture for the Belgian, who won't play at the tournament because of the ankle injury that forced her to pull out of last week's Australian Open semifinals.

    The Sports Palace in Antwerp can hold 10,000 fans and each bottle costs about 25 euros ($34.50 Cdn) in stores. Her prize money so far this year, $226,475 US ($258,435 Cdn), should just about cover the cost.

    She was to have been the main attraction at the Feb 13-19 Diamond Games tournament in Antwerp, which is played less than 100 kilometres from her home. She will be out for at least another seven weeks.

    Nah, she'll smell the champagne fumes in the air and suffer from an "upset tummy."

    Hope they get the champagne after the match. Imagine corks flying all over the court when a not fav. player goes to serve. LOL
