Kutnezsova is the second one that can imitate Kim's splits.

Nope. Kuznetsova and Zvonareva do it too. I've seen Serena do it as well. Serena's was hot. She wasn't wearing much as you know and then she did a full split. I thought it was a strip show.

Nope, Kutznetsova has a similar body build, a lot more muscular and bulkier though and has been seen performing similar splits and athletic ability similar to Clijsters I believe! Nonetheless Clijsters is and seems a lot more flexible! Something I believe she learned from her mom.

Kuznetsova can do the splits, but Clijsters is much fitter and faster than Sveta.

I've seen Sveta and even Paradorn do them.

If Mirny can do a full split what makes anyone not be able to
There is a picture of him doing a split somewhere.
It's another thing to do it when you are running for a ball and suddenly decide to do a stretch
Kim is quite amazing.
I've seen both Serena and Venus do it. But because it is dangerous players don't do it often at all. Kim is quite the opposite. She always does it when she has a chance.
Very impressive.
I do believe however that top 50 players can do a full stretch when they stretch or warm up
