I think we know what they're hinting at...

Just ignore it.

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Well Serena DOES wear eyeliner on court for the last couple of years IIRC

I think that Serena was wearing a different weave back then too.

Re: Kim Clijsters says Serena Williams was her toughest opponent of her career

Kim is a respectable person on and off court with her senseful thinking, so down to earth unlike some other top player who couldn't admit that Serena is her toughest opponent in her career.

Re: Kim Clijsters says Serena Williams was her toughest opponent of her career

What about that chick that beat her in 3 GS finals, she wasn't that tough?

Great video.

I thought she might've said Justine but then again she did have a winning H2H against Henin.

She had a great head-to-head against Henin. She was 10-12 before their 1st retirement which is good and 13-12 including their second career.

Re: Kim Clijsters says Serena Williams was her toughest opponent of her career

With Serena's pretty sizable H2H against Kim, it kind of makes the most sense. She only won 2 matches against Serena, in her career, and 1 of those was a questionable result for Kim, because while in a position to win, she didn't have to do anything for the last two points, against the best server in the womens game ever. (not saying Kim couldn't have won that USO semi on her own, but in her mind.. she finished things off and walked to the net for a handshake 1 time, and was handed a win after some on court disputes and ridiculous calls in the other)

Serena Williams and Venus Williams

^^ with that, who is to say Ausie 02 wouldn't have happened all over again. =? And maybe Kim thinks the same thing, had Serena NOT been FF'd and hit a winner, then maybe an ace.. her second win could have been a totally different outcome.

Serena Williams and Venus Williams

Re: Kim Clijsters says Serena Williams was her toughest opponent of her career

And who is to say Serena wouldn't have hit 2 more unforced errors to lose to Clijsters in that match instead of the footfault and code violation? We'll never know what would have happened, but what happened, happened. We all move on.

Serena has won 4 slams since then.

SERENA 22 GRAND SLAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not Monica Seles?
