How Did The Belgians Turn Their Comeback Into Dominance???

Kim and Justine have dominated the tour the past few weeks: on hardcourt and clay.

What preparations are necessary to be away from competitive tennis so long, then comeback to immediately dominate????

I think it helps that they both were able to practice all their shots while out, with the exception of Kim's two-hander. Easier than say, a back injury, shoulder injury, etc. But most importantly, they are two of the best athletes in the game, and have impeccable technique.

i hope you're smart enough to know the difference between Belgium (a country) and Belgian (the name given to the inhabitants)

I'm thinking more in terms of their mental games. How does a player stay away that long and return to believe they can win so soon, and actually win????

I never said the Russians are off. However, Maria did suffer a loss to Kim during this period.

I think it's the fact that they actually took their time in coming back. A lot of people rush back into competiton the second they feel the slightest bit better. Kim and Justine probably could've come back a month or so before they actually did, but they took the time to make sure they were in great shape and that their shots were grooved. They didn't want to just feel their way back into things, which is smart IMO.
