Arrow Kim Needs To STOP THIS...!!!!!!!!

I hope she stops doing splits!!!!!!!!

I get so scared for her... she is my third fave, Venus, Serena, and then Kim.
She better not get injured, because the only matches that are interesting are Kim against Williams and Jenn against Serena.

Scary stuff! That appears to be her trademark!

The triple split she did when Serena was hittting the ball in the right corner of the court was CRAZY!

I definitely think that one day she will definitely hurt herself. She's got to tone it down a little.

Yeah, she loves sliding. I saw her play Venus at the Stanford Finals and she was sliding all over the play from side to side. No splits though. But I agree. I don't want her to injure herself. When she did her first split on Monday night against Serena, the crowd around me gasped in fear. But then she recovered...only to do another one! Luckily, she didn't injure herself. I wish I was that nimble!!!! Be careful Kim!

I know, those splits definitely are dangerous but for some reason, I love watching them It shows suck athleticism but is still very dangerous.

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

Kim needs to........??? I don't think so

Kim is the most agile of any of the WTA players and her agility comes natural....she is the daughter of a father who was a champion soccer player and a mother who is a gymnast (and taught it as well) so her "genes" have given her a very athletic and supple body......so "split away" Kim....you've got the goods!!

I'm fine with it as long as she doesn't do it in hot weather. She said she burnt her toe earlier this year when the court was hot

Yep, it is kind of scary but she seems to manage it somehow.

Well i think it's really nice to watch but even though she's done it a million times before and never gotten injured, I cringe everytime I see her do it

barmaid, it's not all in the genes.
She can slip and twist her ankle, like she almost did in the finals, she was so close to injuring herself.
I don't know why she does them in the first place, she could hit a running forehand down the line, a lob, or running slice...she has a lot of options. She has a lot of options.
I remember a time when Serena used to do them every now and then, she can do it as well as kim, a whole split, but she doesn't do it anymore, wich is good, hope Kim stops it.
She pulls a muscle and she is out of the match, and maybe next tourny, she twists her ankle or breaks it, she can be out for a long long time, just ask Martina Hingis.
Be careful Kimmy

She's been doing it her whole life, she's used to it and she'll be okay. It's like telling a gymnast to not jump in the air because it's dangerous, but the fact is for you it's dangerous but not for them because they have done it forever...
