Serena participates in Best of Belgium exhibition


On Thursday, July 8, 2010, Serena takes on Kim Clijsters at the King Baudouin Stadium in an exhibition match. The 'Best of Belgium' should have been a tennis match between the country's biggest tennis stars Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin, but Henin had to pull out after an injury. Serena Williams will replace her, but Henin will still be there as a spectator. The game is now called 'Best of Belgium versus Best of the World'.

The event will also offer a musical program of Belgian top artists. The contest celebrates the start of the Belgian presidency of the European Union (July 1st to December 31, 2010). The game will also try to break the world record for the highest number of spectators at a tennis match. The current record is 30,472 spectators in a match played by Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in the Houston Astrodome in 1973.
