Please God, let Kim win

Not that I really think God cares who wins today, but this is just a prayer for the tour.

I think the WTA is getting an awfully bad reputation right now (even though I disagree with it) and no matter who wins the final, their will be arguments that the WTA is in shambles because how could a player that hasn't played in 2 years come back and win OR how could a "pusher" (not my words) like Caroline win.

I think the best situation story-wise and television-wise would be Kim winning the title. The crowds love her, most of the fans love her, and it would be a great story.

So, for the sake of the WTA tour, please win Kim.

Re: Please God, let Kim win

If Kim wins, her story is still going to be overshadowed by the crap that went down in the semi yesterday... Sad but true

Re: Please God, let Kim win

So what -- Kim's story is still great and I hope she wins for her and for the tour!

Serena is awesome and always will be - we all make mistakes and she accepted the consequences and congratulated Kim on a fine performance.

but wasn't the "footfault" on a second serve anyway...so wouldn't she have lost the point regardless

Re: Please God, let Kim win

All the top 10 players (except one obviously) will be rooting for Kim. None of them want her floating around Melbourne as a 17-32 seed.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Re: Please God, let Kim win

How does Kim winning make the WTA seam better?

A player who has not played for two years, comes back in her third events wins a Grand Slam title.... Hmmm not exactly great statement on the state of game is it?

Good luck to both players! I think it would be quite nice to see a new name on the Grand Slam lists.... and it would make it interesting

Kim is easily overshadowed it seems

Wouldn't be surprised if Caro won

I greatly hope Caro wins.

I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.
