Arrow All about Los Angeles (JP Morgan Chase Open)

Kim plays there (I though she wouldn't but she is in the draw)

If the rankings are respected, here are the potential matchs :

Kim is seeded 5

1 R Kim received a bye
2 R Kim against Paola Suarez (or Srebotnik)
3 R Kim against Magdalena Maleeva
QF Kim against Jelena Dokic

I hope Kim will go to the quaters to take her revenge on Jelena who took her 5th spot!!! LOL

Good luck in LA, Kim!
I like this draw better than last week's! I hope she reaches the quarters and beats Jelena there! Than a semi against Serena is possible!

You can beat them all, Kim! I'm sure of that!!

Com'on Kim! You'll do fine! She really played a good match against Venus last!

No you can’t help it if you have been tempted
By fruit hanging ripe on the tree
And I feel useless
Don’t care what the truth is
You will be here come the day

How did Kim do here last year? Does she have a lot of points to defend?? I hope she can have a good showing here and at all her tournaments before the US Open so she can hopefully get a top four seed there

Last year she reached the quarterfinals: Kim-Venus I thought the results were 6/3 6/1









C'mon Kim!!!

Kim lost in the quaters to Nathalie Tauziat 6-4 6-4 if I remember good. I'm sure it was Nat but not the scores

You're right Come-on-Kim! Nathalie Tauziat won with 6-4, 6-2, though.


If Kim is going to take points here, she needs to do better than last year, by all means.

Kim is drawn to meet Jelena in the quarters right?? Jelena must be playing well now seeing how she's in the Acura final

...but then Jelena was in the easier end of the draw. Capriati is really the only player who was expected to be a tough opponent before the finals...and she was almost beaten by Kournikova in the semi finals
