Noticed the new frame hopefully she can serve better in the New Year. I just see her and John as runner up at the Hopman CUp

Don't let the ball play you, you play the ball

Let's face facts she returned when women's tennis was dull, uninspired and in a slump, she provided a great story and brought the game back to life and she won 3 more Grand Slams - what a remarkable achievement!

It's sad that she's leaving when this last year she couldn't compete at anywhere near her best and if she stayed on could perhaps have had a few more good Slam runs but hey she's made up her mind and it was great that she could say goodbye in Belgium where both herself and Justine ignited a humongous interest in the sport and hopefully in the near future we'll see the champions they've inspired.
Very well said.. It's beyond my comprehension how anyone could sit behind a computer and spew such venom towards any professional tennis player.. I sometimes wonder about the ages of some of the posters here... Meanwhile, farewell Kim... You were great for the tour and will surely be missed... I'm so happy Miss Venus was there to share your special day

"I love the game, I love the thrill, I love the "Go Venus`."
"It takes a lot of work to get to this level, so while I can play I'm going to play."

So glad Kim came back in 2009. Now I think she's timed it absolutely right to retire both from a family and a tennis point of view. Her body can't stand up to the physical demands of the tour any more and I wouldn't like to see her reduced to playing a tournament, out through injury, coming back and out again etc another year. I always think that give it a year from when you were at the top to confirm you have achieved all you can and then that's the perfect time to retire from a tennis point of view. And I think that's exactly what has happened.

She can be very proud of her career. And she gave it all she could and put right that slam count before 2007 which just didn't do justice to how good she actually was. Nice win against Venus but exhos and playing a full season on the tour are completely different ball games.
