Amanda Coetzer vs Kim Clijsters

Does anyone think that Amanda has a shot? I think Clijsters will keep winning easily I have a feeling that people won't call Monica fat or insult me in this thread, since I didn't predict Serena to maybe lose.

No because Amanda never beats Kim.

I don't think Amanda has a shot. Not wanting to break out the "no weapons" cliche, but here it really does apply. Amanda needs Kim to beat herself, and I just don't see that happening.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

I hope Amanda wins, but I cant see it happening

My prediction is something like 6-1 6-2 to Kim.

Amanda does have a chance. She does seem to be playing well, and Kim doesn't seem to be living up to her level. Besides, Kim might be a little tired from all the singles and doubles the last three weeks, and Kim has not been tested. Everyone she played is ranked 90 or above.

Kim is not tired. You would think she would be, but she has shown no sign of it. Tennis players have often gone weeks and weeks of winning streaks and not losing. I know this is one! I can feel it! I don't think Kim is ready to lose yet. She is playing like there's no tomorrow. She is the 3rd most difficult, feared and intimidating player on the tour after the sisters. She is far above the rest and phenomenal right now. Amanda is good. Why would phenomenal lose to good?!

now that I think of it, amanda has beaten Seles, Graf, Davenport, Hingis, Venus, etc. so why not Clijsters? Also rebound ace seems to be where she plays her best. I won't count her out.

But that was Amanda when Amanda was at her prime. She is out of her prime now

If this match was played in the day, with this heat, Id give Amanda a chance as she thrives on it.

However, at night I think its going to be another lopsided womens night match.

I didn't mean to say she was tired, but she may be on that road.

She has played three straight weeks, going into the fourth.

She got to the Semi's of the Hopman Cup, playing both singles and doubles. She went to the finals in both events at Sydney. And she is entered in both events here and is still in both events.

I wouldn't be surprised if fatigue is starting to set in.

Well... yeah. I just think that tennis players have done this in the past--many times, going weeks and weeks--what dominance is all about, like Venus and Serena--Lleyton. And there is no reason why Kim should suddenly not be able to do it too against a player like Coetzer and hopefully against Rubin or Myskina. I just hope she doesn't get tired.
