Clijsters didnt want to play Toronto

Toronto -- What you say on personal websites can get you in trouble.

Maybe Belgium's Kim Clijsters, speaking about the Rogers Cup, will learn a lesson from this posting last Wednesday on http://www.kimclijsters.com.

"I didn't want to play that tournament but every year the WTA obliges us to play one specific tournament and this year it will be in Canada for me. I could have done with a week of rest before the U.S. Open."

After winning the Los Angeles event on Sunday at the end of three tournaments in a row in California, Clijsters posted: "In my hotel I quickly took my stuff and made it to bed by one in the morning. And by four a.m. the alarm went off again, as I had to head for my seven o'clock connection to Toronto. And for some more jetlag."

Clijsters, seeded seventh, will make her Rogers Cup debut today at the Rexall Centre against 39th-ranked Virginie Razzano of France.

So, send a check along with the note saying you won't be attending. I don't buy it.

yeah, because if she was obligated for toronto, then why didn't she skip either stanford, san diego, or LA.
let's hope she knows her body, but playing the nice guy isn't going to get her a grand slam.

i agree with VWfan, if Kim was "made" or volunteered to playing Toronto then why didn't she just skip one of the other US events. I mean, she could have skipped LA for a weeks rest, then played Toronto, then another weeks rest before playing USOpen.

Surely it would have been just a good to do that and she would have got the rest she wanted.....hopefully the decision to play all these events won't affect her physically for the USO.

.

don't cry for me Argentina. Just another example of Kim making a bad decision. She didn't NEED to fly out of L.A. on MONDAY morning at 7am to make it to a WEDNESDAY match in Toronto. She could have easily waited until the mid-afternoon and gotten a good night's sleep. That's just bad planning on her part, and she shouldn't complain about it. Grand Slam title contenders need to be on top of those kinds of details.

Willhill have opened up a completely new betting category. People are know betting on the possibility of Kim retireing from the USO with any injury.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

I'm not used to hearing Kim so downbeat. " ... And for some more jetlag."
It's terrible of me, but I like her this way; it makes her more human. NO ONE can ALWAYS be so upbeat, cheery, and smiley! Gripe away, Kimmy! I love ya for it! Maybe you could even break a racquet and curse at the umpire tonight!!!

No matter the situation I don't blame Kim one bit for saying what she said.

What's the problem? She must be tired. I don't know about you people, but when I'm sleepy I'm always pretty grumpy (two out of seven dwarves, allez!). I don't see why Kim should be any different. I'll tell you what, if she'd been all, "Oh yay I just won a tournament, yay! Now I get to jump on a plane after two hours of sleep and I'm just so happy and bubbly about it!" it would have been a HELL of a lot more annoying. Nobody likes a chipper girl. Remember that.

Q. After your performance, your great performance in the Australian Open, do you feel like people are expecting more from you, and yourself are expecting more?
Amélie Mauresmo: No.
Q. Do you remember the last two points against her?
Amélie Mauresmo: No.
Q. Is this your first trip down to Australia?
Amélie Mauresmo: No.
