To prepare for Eastbourne, her hormones are raging for a baby, there is no reasoning with her.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Re: Ok, wait....Why is Kim playing WARSAW and not RG?

Kimmy isn't makin too much sense this year. Not playin the USO? Okay, turn your back on the tournament where you proved yourself on the major stage. And not playin RG? Even more disrespectful. First major final, and then made the finals again 2 years later. But play Wimbeldon, your least successful slam. Kim is being really stupid this year with her schedule. She shoulda just retired last year.

Because she doesn't want to get injured before Wimbledon?

Re: Ok, wait....Why is Kim playing WARSAW and not RG?

Because she knows that if she goes to RG she will be overshadowed by Justine and a resurgent Serena. She wants full attention to herself in her fareware tour. Warsaw is a small tournament, which means she wil be the biggest star there and will receive full attention.

That's my explanation. But honestly I couldn't care less at this point.

If so, she would have actually played the whole year. But nice theory.

Re: Ok, wait....Why is Kim playing WARSAW and not RG?

Seriously who cares?

I mean I love her but her career is already over and she doesn't care anymore so we shoudn't try to understand her actions.
It's really sad to quit the tour like that but what can we do?

Yepp! I mean i'm not a big Kim fan but if I was i'd be pissed that she isnt atleast playing all the majors in her final year I know shes anxious to get married and all that ish but shes throwing away her final year on tour and its just dumb to me I really could care less if she played again at all because shes just taking up space in every tourney she enters cuz its obvious her head is somewhere else

Re: Ok, wait....Why is Kim playing WARSAW and not RG?

I think that, once she won a slam, and held the #1 ranking, there just wasn't anything on tour for Clijsters. She's playing out the year for herself. She'll play a clay tournament or two to keep her ranking up. But she's decided that if she's only playing one more slam, it's going to be the biggest slam of all.

She want a tournament where she can multi-task.
Work on her upcoming wedding preparation, and squeeze in few tennis matches.

Re: Ok, wait....Why is Kim playing WARSAW and not RG?

Why play Warsaw?
Because she wants to be in the same section of the draw as A-Rad (Radwanska) and get knocked out .



Seriously, maybe she wants to give herself the chance to win one more title and go out in style. It would be a good stage for her to make her exit.

SERENA AND VENUS WILLIAMS

DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU'RE MESSING WITH? IF IT'S A GAME, WE'RE NOT PLAYING. STAY OFF CENTRE COURT OR ELSE.
