Re: Australian Open 2012

This has already gotten tighter than I imagined- or than it every should be. I predict a quick second set. First thing first....come on Kimmie and wrap this up!!

6-5 (on serve)

Re: Australian Open 2012

U can totally tell it's going to be a quick beat down in the second. Kim was just as awful as I've ever seen and yet she was never in real danger. Kim is settled, winning the first set, so now she can zone in on her lefty serve and turn this into a match with a lot of positives.

Predicting no more than 2 games lost in the second set!

Re: Australian Open 2012

Had to follow through live scores, so thanks for the details!
A win is a win, and I guess it was to be expected she'd have to find her game a bit...

Re: Australian Open 2012

Ugly tennis from Kim but hopefully it was just some grand slam rust. At least she hasn't peaked too early. A win is a win, I assume she'll play better next round.

Thank You, Kim

Re: Australian Open 2012

Her footwork was ridiculously bad. Hoping she'll improve for wednesday.

Re: Australian Open 2012

that wasn't exactly great tennis! but at least she's through without any problems, not a single break point for Koehler in the 1st set.

Let's hope for some better play in the second round

Re: Australian Open 2012

Kim, that was craptastic tennis. It'll be another early slam exit if she doesn't seriously improve her game & raise her level. Footwork needs a lot of improvement.

Good Luck: Belgian & Czech Girls
