Facing Venus was more of a symbol as, along with Justine, she was her main rival throughout her career. They faced numerous times and played high quality matches.
You guys really don't get the point of a farewell exhibition match. Easy criticism is always better for you.

Kim, you will be missed.
A win streak of 2? Flop. This stupid shit is not preserving anything, Billie Jean King Cup in 2010 ended that win streak long ago if you are throwing exhibitions in the mix.

So long, Kim. Even if you made my life miserable on more than one occasion, you always competed with grace.

Pity I missed this match. I'll be there for her next farewell match though. Promise.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

I guess Kim didn't find losing to a teenager Robson as a proper goodbye.

So rude and disrespectful. You should leave the forum to see how it is, you won't be missed.

All negative people, just leave please.

You can see that while Kimberly's heart was not in the game when she retired in 2007, it is Kimora's body that prevents her from continuing, the game and (presumably) love for the sport are still there. Nice to see HaKima got a proper farewell in front of her home crowd. Sadly Justine never got around to doing such a thing. She would probably have been criticized no end for it, like Kimothy is here , and of course criticized for quitting anyway.

Of course, Kimbrella had Venus' number. Have to believe Venus had to be at her absolute best to win all those matches against Kimone in the past. Stellar defense (we know JJ loves the match-up with Venus too) combined with opportunistic offense = worst opponent for Venus. Kimiko could have continued easily and contended for the HC slams for another couple of years.
