World No.1 Kim Clijsters and her entourage have decided to snub the Belgian press, it was announced on the website of the US Open finalist.

The decision comes in the wake of controversy the day after her defeat in the US Open final to compatriot Justine Henin-Hardenne last Sunday when Flemish media used comments of father Leo Clijsters pointing out the physical strength of Henin and implying doping.

A statement on said: "In agreement with Kim Clijsters, she and her entourage have decided not to talk to the press for an unspecified period of time.

"A list will be published on the website of people to whom they still wish to talk."

Leo Clijsters has since said that comments attributed to him were wrong.

"It seems clear that several newspapers and magazines will from now on be persona non grata because of their offensive content and other sensational articles," he said.
