Belgiums comeback similar to Williams??

Question, with Kim winning today, do you think she will stay on the right track as Serena did...and Justine get in a similar situation Venus is in. Similar situations, different people. Clay season is coming up..and Venus and Justine are better clay players so I think they MAY do better than Serena and Clisters the next few weeks.

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!

Maybe. It will all fold out in time for RG.

Let them eat cake.

I'd say both Belgians are overall better than both Venus and Serena on clay. With Justine's variety and Clijsters' footspeed, they will be the frontrunners for Roland Garros.

Venus did well on clay last year, but Serena was bogged with injuries, and by the time she got her game right late in the clay season she ran into Capriati in two consecutive tournies, losing both in close matches.

Really, don't even look at me...

Too early to say. Justine's second comeback at the Olympics was impressive but she's doing it more slowly this time. Neither of the Williams sisters has been as good since they came back as they were in 2003 wheras Kim probably is at least as good and less tired so far but its early days still.

It's too early to compare Justine's comeback to anyone's, Miami was only her first tournament in seven months. She will get better by the time Roland Garros comes.

Kim is probably a huge favorite for the clay season, though she said she would be glad when it's over because it takes so much from her body, especially her wrist(!?)... Well, good luck to the belgians and to the Williams, I think the four of them will do well, and I'm sure Justine and Kim will win at least one title each. I don't know about Serena, she is good on clay, but it's clearly her worst (or less good) surface, so if she faces Justine or maybe even Kim, she might lose (depending on the previous forms).
