Re: Brisbane 2012

pfffffffff I really hate this!
don't know if the injury explains the bad play in the first set... she looked to me if she was running ok...
was it the hip? Or the leg? don't know
hope it's not too bad, but the fact she retired isn't a good sign I guess

Re: Brisbane 2012

It is better than Kim retired now and be ready for the AO ...

I don't know if the injury explains the bad play in the first set, but I felt that her footwork wasn't good in the first set ...

Court announcer said left hip. She was stretching between sets.

Re: Brisbane 2012

I just hope she retired because she didn't wanted to risk things for the AO. If she isn't able to play the australian, I fear a second retirement

Yeah, I thought so too. Her movement in general wasn't at it's normal level.

Re: Brisbane 2012

We'll just need to wait and see how serious it is.

I wish Kim all the best & all the strength to get through it

Re: Brisbane 2012

I'm happy she retired. I don't want her to make the injury worser. AO is more important than Brisbane! Get well soon Kim!

Good luck for the 2016 season:

• Ana Ivanovic
• Kiki Bertens
• Michaëlla Krajicek


Maria Sharapova, Caroline Wozniacki, Angelique Kerber, Serena Williams, Petra Kvitova, Jelena Jankovic, Flavia Pennetta

Re: Brisbane 2012

This just sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Honestly the worst possible thing I could wake up to. It's just not right. So unfair. I feel so horrible for Kim, every tournament it's a brand new injury! Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even if she is declared okay to go to Australia, that means no match practice or anything beforehand, and it could act up again. This sucks!

Re: Brisbane 2012

Damn this sucks I guess staying injury or illness free isn't easy as it seems to be for Kim these days
But I'm glad she did the right thing & retired to allow herself recovery time for this stupid injury before the AO.
Hope when she sees the doctor tomorrow it won't be that serious.

Even though I had a finals ticket & wanted Kim to be in that final...it's not worth it if she is injured even if she got there. AO is the top priority & rightfully so.

So disappointing. I really hope she's ok for AO. I did think her movement and footwork was off in the 1st set. Just seemed a bit slow. It was a really good fight back to win that set when she was obviously not playing her best tennis. Thought when she came back from the injury time out she would be ok because she jogged back a bit, but then that last game she wasnt running properly. So sad!

Fingers crossed it's going to be ok

Kim Clijsters!

Your opponent is not the person on the other side of the net, or the team on the other end of the field, or even the bar you must high-jump. Your opponent is yourself - your negative internal waves, your level of determination.

Re: Brisbane 2012

I am glad she played in Brisbane rather than Sydney considering she got injured. At least she has a week's rest.
