to kim fans...

we r all sad that kim lost. but she's only human. she can't go on winning forever. she did lose to the second seed, not somebody ranked outside the top 20. kim expected her own expectations by coming back winning back to back tier 1 titles. so a loss in a tier 2 semi finals doesn't mean much. i'll rather she lose now den lose in the early rounds of berlin, rome or roland garros. kim's still getting used to clay, the surface where she doesn't really like but reached 2 grand slam finals. so kim will be back! cheer up!

Kim is back and she isn't going anywhere. It's her first tournament on clay in a year so it's pretty normal that she's feeling uncomfortable on the red dirt initially. And she lost to Kuznetsova, who indeed is not having the best year she can, but is a dangerous player. I've read that the match was overall pretty bad off both sides, so she has nothing to worry about except getting better for Berlin.

Exactly! Not sure what's the point of this thread. I don't think anyone is really highly dissapointed or chocked that she lost. We're more worried about her shoulder who seemed to be bothering her. First tourney on clay, a SF is nothing to be ashamed of And yeah Kuznetsova is dangerous, she couldn't keep on winning forever!

Yes but you agreed it wasn't the end of the world and every match is different too

Oh yeh, what about her shoulder? I didn't see the match today, so I haven't noticed anything yet about it, is it bothering her to the point it's affecting all her game, especially the serve? Well, I hope not and it must probably be 'cause she's had 3 tough matches this week and clay is so demanding. Relax, Kim!

You're probably right. But what we read from the comments and journalists (yeah I know shouldn't listen to half of what they say ) it was sore. It sounded as if she had a strap on it today but not sure. Anyone who's seen the match?

Losing a match is not a disaster, surely not after the amazing come back. So to her fans: no reason to panic.

Thanx for all your concern, you guys, but we don't panic and we're not worried (at least I'm not). She's been saying all week she doesn't like the clay and that she's looking forward to the grass season allready. Still she wants to improve on clay.

I don't understand why Kim decided to play both Berlin and Rome, as clay is hard on her body and she already has shoulder problems... I hope she withdraws from either Rome or Berlin because two tier 1 tournaments where she is likely to go far is a bit to much, she must play well in Paris!!!!!!!!!!
