On her website today Kim confirms her satisfaction with her performance at RG. Last year Kim went to Eastbourne a week early to prepare (because at that point in time that was her philosophy on training). This year she is not going until Friday because she says she now needs more time to rest her body, so that cuts down the preparation time. Its a bit "che sara sara" if you ask me, but that is obviously the way Kim is going to do things and she seems to think that is sufficient. Kim doesn't want a coach or to take any advice from anyone about her tennis, so that would appear to be that.
Only time will tell if her way of doing things this year will deliver anywhere near the results that started coming this time last year.
I think there is absolutely no doubt that Kim's commitment to the game has dropped since this time last year. No doubt its the result of winning a slam and getting loved up and that's her business, no-one elses (although I think everyone has a right to make observations about that, whether they be good or bad).
Time will tell if the results will still come with her reduced preparation for tournaments. I hope they do, of course, and we will see.
