Kim's sliding splits...

Please tell me you all are not just noticing this now?!

I'm a young girl, an old WTAWorld member.

I hope she doesn't mess up an ankle doing this on hard courts or indoors.

I noticed it in the first match I saw her, and thought, this girl will damage her right ankle soon.
She is still walking fine one and a half season later.

Yes, she was a gymnast.

La question est de savoir s'il vaut mieux bien faire le Mal ou mal faire le Bien

This is what Brad Falkner (TennisWeek) had to say:

"The sharp shriek of squealing sneakers skidding across the Staples Center court echoed throughout the arena. Kim Clijsters' consecutive sliding splits sounded strenuous, looked positively painful and elicited a collective groan from a sympathetic court-side crowd."

But boy do we love 'em!
