Re: Let's face it: This is Kim's regular form!
Whenever I watched a match of Kim Clijsters during the last year, commentators kept saying "This is not like Kim today", "She's not at her best", "Kim is not in great shape today, she can do so much better"...
But can she?
Let's face it
: Most of the time Kim is doing a lot of unforeced errors and winning matches because she's a fighter and mentally and physicly strong.
Don't get me wrong: She's the best player on the tour right now - no doubt about it.
But that's the problem: Her game is not that great as everybody wants it to be. She's not better than before her comeback.
It's just that there is absolutly no competition since the Williams-sisters & Henin are gone.
I can only hope that former top players like Sharapova, Ivanovic & Co find her form and Kim stays healthy to keep this level.
Final Sydney (not convincing)
Won Australian-Open (but in bad shape - appart from the semi-final vs Zvonareva, which was ok)
Final Paris (not convincing at all)
Indian Wells (horrible)
Miami (horrible as well)
Also when she won the Tour Championships and the US Open last year, she was not totally convincing. Had some really poor matches.
But still was unbeaten from mid August on.
The same can be said for another highely overrated(atleast overated in her "recent" years) part time player. But does she get as much flak?
