Jim Wilson and Giaan Rooney with Darren James

Jim Wilson won’t be referring to Kim Clijsters as ‘Aussie Kim’ during the Australian Open.

Clijsters, a four-time Grand Slam winner for Belgium and new Channel 7 commentator, earned the moniker during her engagement to Lleyton Hewitt in 2003.

But Wilson told Darren James on 3AW Afternoons that he won’t be calling her ‘Aussie’ again after a Twitter backlash earlier this week.

‘I got shouted down by a few people!’ Wilson said. ‘A few people were a bit offended.’

Giaan Rooney and Jim Wilson also shared their top picks for the greatest tennis players of all time.
