Did Kimmie dominate Venus in Hamburg?

I was just browsing through the Roland Garros site when i came across an article which said..."Last year's runner-up, Kim Clisters (N4), will play the Belarus Tatiana Poutchek at the end of the day on Suzanne Lenglen court. Clijster's recent success in Hamburg where she dominated Venus Williams proves that the Belgian is in great shape." No doubt Kim and Justine are in great shape but i hardly call Kim's victory dominating. Mind you, i'm not taking away from Kim's victory over Venus. It was well deserved. But the term "dominating" is very misleading. I pictured a straight set drubbing when i read that article.

Well Kim did play very well, but the match was three sets, and I know the last two were not like 6:0. 6:1. So I'm not going to say she dominated. But she did play really well.

Depends on who's favorite wins... Some players win 7-5 or 7-6 in the 3rd, and it was a domination.

Venus dominated the first set..but Kim clearly dominated in the last two...so you could say she has dominated Venus in Hamburg.

no way man

a 3-set match is, by definition, not a domination.

get real

If you are a Kim fan, this is a domination

If you are Venus fan, you will definitely definitely call this a close match

The choice of word is irrelevent, the only fact needed to know is that Kim did beat Venus in Hamburg

6-3 or 6-4 in the 3rd is not a domination.. The beat down that Venus gave her at the US Open was a domination.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

even if a player wins 6-7 6-0 6-0 then it's still not a domination. The last two sets obviously were, but not the match.

i'd say that domination occurs up until a situation where the loser has picked up at least 4 games.

6-3 6-2 is not a domination. a convincing and comfortable victory but not domination.

Kim dominated nobody. Get over it!

Biass should never brainwash your choice of wording...

and I wouldn't say it was domination. I watched that match and was bored out of my mind. I don't think it was sparks for any of them, but Kimmie definitely kicked booty in last 2 sets. LOL! Made me proud.

Nope, no domination, just 2 very good last sets by kim in which she was better as Venus and dominated more points as vice verse.

no and that makes it even better, she had to fight for it and that's good

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

"If you are a Kim fan, this is a domination"

I don't think so... I'm a Kim fan and I wouldn't say she dominated... not that I care anyway, she won, I'm happy with that, domination or not

How can anyone calls a one time win a domination. Kim and Venus
played twice and it is 1-1. If you talk about someone dominates
another, you can compare the case of Venus and Henin, Venus and Capriati or Hingis and Seles. That is domination. After all
I think Kim can't beat Venus when they meet again. She doesn't
have the consistency to win against Venus all the time.
