Are these journalist stupid or what????

HAMBURG, GERMANY (TICKER) -- Kim Clijsters is healthy and ready for the French Open.

Clijsters claimed her seventh career title Sunday, upsetting top seed Venus Williams of the United States at the $585,000 Betty Barclay Cup.

The second seed from Belgium, Clijsters denied Williams her fifth title of the year, rallying from one set down to post a 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory. The match lasted one hour, 52 minutes.

"She played so good in the first set but I just kept fighting and did the best to raise my level," Clijsters said. "I felt more confident as the games passed. I knew I had to be aggressive from the first points on so I'm just so happy right now."

The 18-year-old Clijsters, who has struggled with injuries this year, claimed the $93,000 first prize. She also avenged a straight-set loss to Williams in the quarterfinals at the U.S. Open.

Earlier this year, Clijsters withdrew in Memphis and Scottsdale due to a leg injury. Three weeks ago at Amelia Island she advanced to the semifinals but retired in the second set against Justine Henin with a stomach virus.

"I feel good and it's a good way to go into the French Open," Clijsters said. "I also played well in my match during the Fed Cup so I hope it continues."

Despite the loss, Williams, a two-time champion of this event, will maitain her No. 1 world ranking for at least one more week.

"In the first set, I played great shots but it's difficult to keep going like that," Williams said. "Maybe I rushed a bit too much. Kim played great tennis. She served well and moved well and was very determined."

Are they talking about Dokic? Or don't they know that Kim withdrew from Antwerp and Scottsdale, with an ARM injury. The're just stupid

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

journalists are often not very accurate! I will keep that in my mind when I start my study in september

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I will be doing that as well Irma, but I probably would never consider myself one of "them."

lol, people who are not tennis fans should not be writing tennis columns. they obviously have no interest in the matter, and they just write stuff that's wrong and everyone thinks that it's the truth! its so annoying! not that that's any different from the rest of newspapers, but....
