I don't know if it's pure choking. Kim is just very on and off these days.

She just looks bored and nonchalant out there. Like she's thinking about her babeh. Until she wins match point, where we see a nice reaction. Need to see more of that from Clijsters.

Wow, didn't realize Clijsters had such an authorative record over Ju on HCs. I know 2 wins were this year. When were the other HC wins?

Justine won the most important ones : US Open and Australian Open finals, so she is the best on relevant HC matches

This stat is so misleading

I miss the old Kim of 2003. That Kim was focused point after point. And consistent!

Actually I believe Kim is naturally better than Justine on hardcourts but Justine is much better in Slams. That's why she has won seven slams and Kim "only" two. But they have started a new career, so we will see.

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

That could change because Kim, if she plays like she has so far this tournament, will probably defend her title at the US Open

Kim doesnt own Justine anywhere... period They could play on the moon and Justine will still have the mental edge

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

I doubt it.

She won the US Open because she was free of all pressure, she didn't expect to win there.

Again, we will see. After all she was the favourite at 2005 US Open and won it...

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

Yes, but those were 6 years ago. In '06, Kim didn't even put forward any sort of effort in their slam matches. I'd like to see them play in a slam this year
