How can anyone call Kim's game boring?

The balls she brings back....unbelievable! Defense can be pretty fantastic to watch as well!

I am loving this kind of boring BTW I never thought she was boring-- I always supported her when she was not playing Vee, but decided to adopt her fully when the other Belgian was beating her regularly

Talk about defensive

I can't think of a witty signature right now. I like turtles.

Her game is not boring. But I must admit all that Saint Kim rubbish has really made me dislike her for a while.

I'm impressed today...

...but in the past I've found her to be quite a retriever/backboard and I prefer and believe she's capable of producing great attacking tennis.

Hopefully she'll keep it up.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

Her game is definitely not boring, she has a variety of shots . I think fans think any player who plays defensive tennis is boring.

I must admit that's where my "Kim Henman" routine was inspired. Back when I was on the Henin bandwagon.

Fair enough. If I wasn't so biased in favour of her, it would probably have annoyed me too. So I understand.

I've never liked defensive play..so yes I do think Kim's game is boring.

It's incredible how many balls she retrieves, but I prefer to see a more offensive style of play.
