Before the US Open

Does anybody know what Kim is doing during this week before the US Open? Is she in New York already?

Re: Before the US Open

She won't play a tournament, she will train.

Kim's physiotherapist is Eveline Coppens, she is 25 and from near Ghent.

She should have left for New York together with new coach De Hous last Sunday.

Hi Souriska!

They are together in NY. However, they aren't exactly on "holidays"; are preparing themselves for next week. So it's practice time, no holiday.

Lleyton doesn't play the week for the US Open, his schedule was made up as such that he has one week's practice right before the grand slam, no tourneys, just like last year's preparation for the US Open. Kim did the same.

Arrow All US Open news and articles

Kim will play doubles with Meghann Shaughnessy at the US Open.

Source: Belgian press, August 21, 2002

translation by Ingrid

“Touch wood, but it’s going very well with Kim’s shoulder at present. So this means she can play doubles, although that remains less important than her singles of course,” dad Leo says.

“Her permanent doubles partner will be probably Jelena Dokic. That would have two advantages. Dokic plays like 29 tournaments a year and is therefore almost always around. Furthermore she is also a top player, so she won’t mind that much if Kim would decide not to play in doubles once in a while.”

thanks Ingrid!!!
I think, if she is going to play doubles with Meghann, she won't play mixed doubles, that would be a bit to much imo!!!

Good luck Kim
Great to hear that from her schoulder

pfff I was hoping Lley and Kim would played mixed doubles but I guess they won't now since 3 events would be a bit much

Nope,I don't think kim and lley are going to play mixed doubles together
Well,maybe next year then
I know they played mixed doubles in wimbledon 2000 and once
at RG(btw in what year was that?)
Did they play together in any other (big) tournament?

You know what ,I really think kim is going to do very well at theUSO!!! As long as we keep believing in her,she can beat anyone!!!!


cheers
