Thumbs up Martina Hingis about Kim

Don't think this was posted here?

Source: AFP, Feb 7, 2003

Hingis says no-one can currently match the Williams sisters Venus and Serena.

"The only one is Kim Clijsters. She has the strength and the talent," she said when asked what she felt when Serena Williams won her fourth successive Grand Slam tournament at Melbourne last month.

"But Serena is the best player in the world at the moment, there's no question about it."

Marti always has a pretty relation with Kim.
They are friends both on and off court.

Kim: Lleyton and I are not in a hurry;we’re still enjoying our bf/gf relationship.There is plenty of time left to become husband and wife,mum and dad,granddad and grandma…

I always so proud of myself being a huge Lley&Kim fan,I choose Kimmy as my e name before I like Lley&Kim, just lucky to have it.Lley&Kim become a big part of my life;of my happiness.I wanna see:they win the matches everytime;they are happy together every minute.It's just so amazing to know;like;understand and love them...

Just shows how wrong even tennis players can be. I think that Justine, Amelie & especially Kim are equal to Serena. They have all shown that they can beat Serena & Venus isnt playing her best at the moment either.

We will miss you Kim!.

Best of Luck in 2007 to: Kim & Bryan, Lleyton, Alicia, Todd, Sam, Chris, Casey, Wayne, Kirsten & all the other Aussies & injured players.

I don't know about equal to Serena - none of those players have won multiple majors (let alone all 4 in a row) and none have dominated as Serena has shown she can do.

There is no doubt those ladies can challenge Serena in singular matches, but it remains to be seen whether they can threaten at every major.

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

not even close to EQUAL

[Justine, Amelie & especially Kim are equal to Serena. They have all shown that they can beat Serena & Venus isnt playing her best at the moment either.[/QUOTE]
No. Serena has been in a class of her own. Perhaps the players
you mentioned have the potential to beat Serena. However, at this point, Serena has been a very dominant player. Right now
there is Serena and there is the rest of the world.
