Re: Australian Open 2012

Kim is at the Australian Open watching Federer and Nadal. She looks nice. Chris Fowler (ESPN commentator) said he saw her after the match and she looked really down, so nice to see her enjoying the match.

Thank You, Kim

Re: Australian Open 2012

Horrid day for me, Kim, Petra and Federer losing
I'm actually just very proud of Kim, she made it to the semi's even when not being fit. Imagine if she is fit. I'll keep some fantastic memories form this tournament

Re: Australian Open 2012

Yeah they showed her watching Federer and Nadal here too. She looked nice

Can't believe Azarenka just beat Maria...

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: Australian Open 2012

Vika beating Maria so convincingly makes me feel better about Kim's loss...

Re: Australian Open 2012

Yup Vika's toughest match was against Kim. So we have a new number one with a grand slam title.

Kim's next event is Indian Wells if I am not wrong. See you then.

That I agree so at least Kim lost to the new AO champ & World No.1.

I was thinking the same - at least Kim made it a match. Vika was just the better player this time.

Re: Australian Open 2012

I am very proud of Kim. I'm stil pinching myself that she got out of the Li Na match. I'm sure Kim was very dissappointed to lose in SF. But hopefully she turns that around and works hard for IW & Miami.

Let's not forget this is the first tournament Kim has completed without retiring since Rosmalen! Even then she was struggling with that foot problem. Kim is getting back to being match tough.

Kim is set up for a big year. I'm sure she'll get a good feeling once she gets back on those American hardcourts she loves!

PS happy she is skipping fed cup.

Good Luck: Belgian & Czech Girls

If Kim would have been 100% healthy, she would have beaten Azarenka. It was a good effort by Kim.

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!

Re: Australian Open 2012

It was sad Kim didnt win after that tremendous fightback vs Na. She was so close to winning that semifinal vs Azarenka. If she had I am sure she would have won the final.
