"Of course it's to try and win. My mindset is not any different," Clijsters said. "I haven't played many matches or tournaments this year and physically I believe I can do it.

"I've trained hard. I'm in maybe the best shape that I have been in. I'm not worried physically that I'm not ready to do it."
She sounds positive. C'mon Kim!!!

Re: US Open 2012

Night match..perfect.

I hope she moves well.

P.S: This might be the last time I see my favourite two tennis players play the night session. Going to enjoy it to the fullest.

Re: US Open 2012

Well, that's one tough draw from the third round till the final...
But we have to believe that she can do it, it's her last tournament ever and I think she gives just that bit more on a tournament that she already won, like the US Open.

It is going to be difficult with a in-form Li And now with Carlos as her coach, he knows Kim well

But Kim can do this!!!

Re: US Open 2012

In the women's doubles, Kim and Kirsten will play Chuang/Zhang in the 1st round.
They might meet Srebotnik/Zheng (7th seeded) in the second round.

Re: US Open 2012

Kim wins it 6-3 6-1!

Quite hesitant first set with many unforced errors but overall not that bad of a match considering she hasn't played any preparatory tourney.

She'll play Robson in the 2nd round.

Re: US Open 2012

Nice win by Kim! She admitted afterwards that she was very nervous which definitely was evident in the first set. But in the second set Kim looked pretty good. She was very nice to Duval as well. She asked her for a photo to remember her last first round! Robson is a tricky lefty next but Kim should hopefully expose her movement.

On ESPN2 they said Kim was playing doubles for more match play and mixed doubles because she wants Bob to get her a mixed doubles slam before she retires.

Thank You, Kim
