Myskina is predicting that Clijsters will win this tournament.
``I think right now Kim is the best player in the world,'' she said. ``I think she feels like she's playing at home here.''
Clijsters said she has gained confidence from her string of 24 victories in her last 25 matches.
But, she said, in the big matches, the Williams sisters ``can play even better when they have to. ... You have to grab every chance you get to break them.''
Clijsters, the 2001 French Open runner-up, kept Myskina on the run with a heavy forehand, which accounted for 20 of her 27 winners.
She also won points with outstanding hustle, especially against the 21-year-old Russian's drop shots.
Clijsters lost her serve twice in the second set, but allowed Myskina to hold serve only three times in the match.
Myskina had won two of their previous four matches, but said Clijsters cut down sharply on errors this time.
``She's better than Serena and Venus right now. She's got more confidence than Serena and Venus,'' Myskina said.
