Forget about Kim!

Or, apparently we are supposed to. The day after absolutely crushing Sandrine Testud, Kim loses in straight sets to Justine, in a match where she was serving for the first set. Now she seems relegated to "Dark Horse" status for Roland Garros. So be it.

LOL well this is life in wtaworld board, you have to keep winning or people will discount you straight away.

But I think kim maybe a bit too inconsistent. She has a good draw and should go far, but a potential QF against Amelie or Sandrine is quite dangerous.

Perhaps the truest words ever spoken on this board.

I think we should be more patient about Kim.

Let's wait and see...

Kim and Justine make each other play their worst tennis. Their matches are just about who plays least bad I don't think you can tell how good they are by their meetings!

Those who forget about Kim will do so at their peril..... and yes, once again we see the 'reactionary' nature of this board.

BTW, where is Kim called dark horse?

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!

Well, Hagar, any talk I've seen puts Kim as no better than 5th favourite. Apparently she is suddenly light years behind Serena and Justine. So is everyone, apparently, except Jennifer in some forecasts.

who cares, she will show them
go Kimmy

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

dh, are you specifically talking about people on the board, or commentators in general?
