KIM: Simply Amazing-Wins the March Double despite Serious Injury

I'm in shock. First woman since Steffi Graf to win back to back IW and Miami titles. Even more impressive is that she did it coming back from injury.
She only started hitting backhands in January of this year.
Amazing run!

Even more impressive when you know that Kim win 14 matches to do so while Steffi only 11 (in 1996) and 10 (in 1994)

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

AND it wasn't until 1997 that Miami was upgraded to Tier I status, which makes it even more impressive!

amazing

Indian Wells in 1994 and 1996 was only a 28-player tournament with the top4 seeds having a bye in the first round, so Kim's achievement is much better having beaten Lindsay,Nastya,LenaD,Amelie and Masha and losing only 2 sets in 14 matches!
