Re: Kim is better mentally than she used to be
My personal opinion, which probably differs from sammy and iPatty is that emotionally detaching herself allowed her to play offensively (like match point). Or that emotionally detaching herself allowed her to not collapse especially after choking while not serving for the match.
She didn't let her emotions get the best of her... b/c I dont think she engaged her emotions at all. In the past, she would have folded like a cheap tent..or like a house of cards all falling down.
I think she found a way to avoid that. I think she still struggles to separate herself from the setting (Henin being her opponent), but it's what works for now.
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.
When will you learn that "pushers" never make it past the club level, let alone #1 on the WTA computer? Will it be too late?
