What did Clijsters say after her match that offended the Eurosport commentators?

Chris Bradnam on Eurosport was talking about Kim saying something rude after her loss yesterday (and in IW) and how her popularity on the tour is on the edge. He was also wondering why someone didn't talk to her before the interview.


So what did she exactly say?

Interesting that the commentators are even questioning saint kim now Thought it would be just a tennisforum thing.

" Q. Was it just too many tournaments in a row or the shoulder?
KIM CLIJSTERS: I don't know, combination of a few things. Yeah, physically maybe. Tough few last days. But not in a way that I should not be ready for that. I train hard enough to physically be capable of doing that.
Mentally just kind of feel like I didn't have any fighting spirit. You know, it's obviously tough against someone like her. You know, against some lower ranked players maybe it's possible to get through matches, but against somebody like her, not."

I don't see what's wrong with that answer, besides the lack of eloquence.

It's just nit picking in the grand scheme of things, because she stated "some lower ranked player".

DON'T WAVE YOUR HAND AT ME GURLLL!

I agree. It's the unfortunate truth that Kim and many other top ranked players can come out, play like shit and make it past to the next round. I guess, people don't like the truth being stated so brazenly.

Lol British ES commentators. Apparently, suggesting that the people on the top are better than the ones ranked lower is "classless".

Re: What did Clijsters say after her match that offended the Eurosport commentators?

maybe they are pissed because she said that she didn't want to fight also with other words I didn't give a damn today. It probably would have been better if she had said I am mentally tired after the match yesterday.

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

More and more people are finding out about Kim's dubious ways.

No, the commentator repeated it on livestream, he means the lower ranked players comment.
