Re: Is Kim the female Federer?

Funny thread, I dont even like Federer and I love Kim but a definite no.

Federer = arguably greatest player of all time. Kim = arguably 4th best player of her generation.

Federer = every shot in the book. Kim = fairly complete topspin drive baseline game and nothing else.

Federer = dominant for years. Kim = never truly dominant up to now.

Re: Is Kim the female Federer?

No.

Kim is the best player on US hardcourts. Federer is not.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: Is Kim the female Federer?

I cannot even think of a situation in which they ca be compared, not game wise, nor achievement wise, nor dominance wise- hell she is not even dominant right now. The only thing they bhave in common is having won slams as parents.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

so true

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.

Re: Is Kim the female Federer?

is this a joke...Federer is Mr finesse and Kim is a kinda of a blue collar player who has somewhat recovered from chokelitis....no comparison 16-3.Kim can be compared to Roddick because they play no finesse blue collar tennis.

Re: Is Kim the female Federer?

I think the real question is:

Is Roger the male Kim?

No he's not. And he's dumb too, in case he would find a mole on Kim's feet he would just try to cut it off, and the scar would prevent Kim from playing the rest of the season. Kim would not want that.
