Belgium: Knokke – Optima open and La Terrasse du Zoute

Posted on Updated on


Some of you who follow me on Instagram, may have seen some photos of a tennis event I went to a month ago. I hadn’t come around yet to do a blog post, but well… with some delay : here it is !

I have always been a tennisfan. I have scarcely played the game myself, but I always enjoyed watching a good game on television ever since I was a teenager. Back in the eighties Ivan Lendl, Bjorn Borg and Mats Wilander were my favorite tennis players. And once Belgium produced top players like Kim Clijsters, Justine Henin and Xavier Malisse, I watched their games as often as I could, even setting my alarm clock in the middle of the night to watch an important game !

My husband also enjoys the game (he was more a McEnroe and Connors fan) and so we were quite happy to have won some tickets for the Optima Open in Knokke (mid August), an event where former tennis players show what they still have in store.  Read more about our date to Knokke!
