Maybe we'll get a Caro-Kim match.
They won everything above Tier 2 for the last 8 months, but only played once since the 2009 USO final, in the 2010 YEC final

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Domination.

I guess Kim's shoulder is feeling well, but it hardly got a workout.

It's amazing what a couple of days in a radiation-free zone can do for a sore shoulder.

lolz at the radiation cracks... it's just Yakimova, guys. 1 and 1 against her doesn't mean Kim's shoulder is 100 percent

Mere formality. You have to wonder what goes through the mind of someone like Yakimova before they face Kim... Why bother?

Kim's serve stats don't look too good. I wonder if her shoulder hampers her serve or if it was just a 'normal' wonky serve day?

Lol. Her shoulder though is bothering her since the AO . And perhaps she feels vulnerable to radiation since her father died of (skin) cancer, I can imagine. Japanese radiation has reached European shore already btw. In a very low dose probably, but still.
I wonder how many matches she can play without significant hinderer () from her shoulder, I don't think this one match is any indication, like we've witnessed at Indian Wells.

In fairness Yakimova came into this match red hot, with 8 wins in a row, and 7 of the 8 wins were against top 100 standard players. On top of that she had dropped only one set in those eight matches. So this is someone who was playing very good tennis. That Kim beat her 1 and 1 is, I would say, is quite impressive.
