It's amazing what a couple of days in a radiation-free zone can do for a sore shoulder.
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.
lolz at the radiation cracks... it's just Yakimova, guys. 1 and 1 against her doesn't mean Kim's shoulder is 100 percent
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.
