Clijsters vs Venus: head-to-head 1-1

Remember about 2 months ago when I said that in my opinion Kim Clijsters has the potential to be Venus' nemesis? I based it on the fact that she's very quick, she has power and that she can force Venus into error by returning a lot of balls. I'm talking about THIS COMBINATION:

Incredible quickness and defensive skill


Great power and offensive game


Their head-to-head is 1-1 and today Kim has the opportunity to move ahead. Good luck to Kim!

Kim Clijsters, Venus' nemesis? Are you out of your mind?
Venus is at the peak of her game and has a solid potential of
reaching and winning every tournament she enters. With this,
nobody, past or present even including her sister will be
venus' nemesis.
When Justine played Venus for the first time, many people thought Justine was the next mesiah since Hingis, Davenport
Capriati and Seles competition against Venus was fading away
but that was never meant to be. Clijsters herself will never
agree with your analysis on this subject. Expect Venus to win
more matches today and in the future.

Every time I see Kim sliding in a pic it makes me cringe.

Kim is a good match up for Venus, she gets everything back forcing Venus to make one extra shot, which is something she doesn't like to do.

I won't predict anything though, cos whenever I do that I always end up being wrong and looking stupid

Come on Kim! Kick some Venus ass big time!

No you canĺt help it if you have been tempted
By fruit hanging ripe on the tree
And I feel useless
Donĺt care what the truth is
You will be here come the day

If Kim could train 100% then she would have 50% chance to win, now it's 70% for Venus and 30% for Kim.

Well guys, I guess chings just demonstrated to us why we should never underestimate stupidity. From now on, just to spell it out for the less-than-intelligent people reading these boards, I suggest that everyone make sure to write "Kim Cheering Thread Only please" so that there is no excuse for someone who obviously does not watch tennis (hello Serena has won all 3 of the Williams-Williams matches this year what the H*ll are you talking about that not even her sister can be a nemisis?) to post a big load of Kim hating garbage in a Kim loving thread. I think that a healthy Kim certainly has a great chance to do well against Venus, and she proved that by winning Hamburg over Vee. However, this being a hardcourt, and Kim being less than 100%, I will not get my hopes up that she will beat Venus, because I think I would be disappointed. However, C'Mon Kim! Just do your best and make it a good match!

I like Kim and hope she and Venus have good matches in future but I think Venus needs to be a bit off for Kim to win. Suppose you could say that for Venus versus anyone though. Hope Venus wins but good luck to both ladies.

For me, the really good news out of Stanford is that Kimmie made the finals. That must mean her shoulder problems are under control for the moment. No matter what happens today, hopefully Kim can do well this summer and well at the Open. So, good luck to both ladies.

Mboyle,
I don't know how well you uderstand the word "NEMESIS".
My arguement was not that Venus has not been beaten by
anyone. Yes someone has beaten her this year three times,
one whom happen be her sister. But in that case you can not
even consider Serena Venus' nemesis.
You now demonstrating to us the level of your understanding
and stupidity. Some of you just hide from your parents to post
all kinds of bullshit on this board without having the understanding of few basic words.

I hope her shoulder is better, but look at the way she slides on hard courts! That is an accident waiting to happen, whats wrong with that girl!?!

Anyway, I like Kim but since she is playing the Queen of the WTA my loyalties must lie with Venus. Sure Kim has a chance, I mean they are both 1-1, but I'll go with the four time grandslam winner who seems to be back at the top of her game. Besides I'm sure Venus is looking for Serious revenge after Kim had that spectacular comeback win in Germany.

GO VENUS AND WAFFLE THAT BELGIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
