Clijsters: Defeats BOTH Williams in 1 Tournament

Congrats to Kim,

She accomplished the rare feat of taking out BOTH Sisters in the same event. Much kudos.

Technically yes, but I doubt kind-hearted Kim would take any joy from Venus having to retire injured.

Great win against Serena though

Technically yes...but in reality no...
Good job to kim though...she deserves it and in the end she received more "luck" than the sisters did...

A win is a win, but anyone could see, Kim should thank Jenn for her win tonight. Serena was just too, too, tired. Pure and simple. And as far as showing anyone can beat the Williamses, they'll really need to do much more next year to beat them. Serena won't be tired the next time she meets Kim.

She didn't take joy from Venus retiring. The photos show that Kim was quite disappointed. She was really looking forward to playing Venus

Yes she did. The Willis can take it in stride for they know where they stand. Kim is a nice girl; all the best for her.

It will go in the h2h that she beat both but I suppose in Kim's mind she only beat Serena.

Venus was classy enough to attempt to play the match when she could have easily withdrawn taking away any points Kim got for defeating #2 and the W on Kim's column.. God forbid Venus would have pulled out due to injury! (with good reason) Imagine all the crap she would have gotten from the ignorant people that follow tennis.

gopher,

Kim won fair and square, but, I certainly wouldn't put too much stock into this win over a "very tired" Serena!! We'll just have to wait and see what happens next season. Also, this is the end of the year tourney and probably all the players are tired, to some extent. Kim was decidedly more rested than Serena, and after having Venus retire, she had a full day to rest. Again, not to take anything from Kim's win, but, we'll need to see them compete when they are both at their best. OKAY ????

Kim didnt defeat Venus, she really should have got a walkover on that match. I dont think Kim considered it a proper win, but she did a good job to go on and take the title

actually to even start a thread like this means that you acknowledge that venus and serena are the best of the best on the tour and two score back to back wins means that kim is in some rarefied plane of tennis. so its a nice compliment to the sisters that people find their games so overwhelming and striking.
