Is Anastasia Myskina Delusional?

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.

LOL! The last bit is a bit much! Who's to really judge!

Kim has never won a slam or been ranked number one. Serena beat her 2 weeks ago in Hopman Cup. Also Kim herself said "I didnt really beat Venus" who retired 5-0 with a hurt calf.

Anastasia should think twice before making silly comments.

First of all she just got spanked by Kim so it is beneficial to her PSYCHE to state that Kim is #1.

Oh hell, what am I writing here?

Anastasia is DELUSIONAL and NUTS in her *thinking* in that paragrapgh. How does this girl know what is inside Venus and Serena's head? Myskina is 21, Serena is 21. Serena=4 times slam winner. Myskina=0 slam winner. Myskina must get that mental frame of mind working if she expects to win a slam.

Actually, the #11 ranked player would tend to be a better judge of these things than any of us. Or an utter fool.

I think she should just be glad she was seeded 8 and was able to do as well as she did and not launch missles at Venus and Serena after she gets beaten. They will want to beat her even worse the next time they play her.

I don't think Kim is better than Serena or even Venus. there is still a big gap between Kim and the sisters. in my opinion she has been hyped a bit too much in this fortnight. realisitically speaking it s fair to say Serena will take her back to school.

Anastacia knows the game better than most on this board, she knows what she's saying! Anas played with the best and knows very well that Kim's tennis has been consistently better than any woman in the last few WTA events and probably was today worthy of a #1 performance.

Its not like there arent facts to back up ANA like the fact kim has won 24 of last 25 matches...maybe at this MOMENT kim really is playing great, the reason shes not #1 is she hasnt SUSTAINED this level for 1 year like serena has.

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

sm, do you work for ESPN? You are twisting the facts just like they do. Have you forgotten about Serena beating Kim at Hopman Cup, not to mention Venus/ Serena just beat Kim/Ai in doubles yesterday.

she learnt for Jelena

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I think Miss Myskina let her enthusiasm get the best of her. We all know that Kim is very popular in the lockerroom, and rightfully so - but come on.

We know she wasn't thinking clearly becasue she said Kimmie was "much better" than Serena right now before climbing down at least off that cloud.

I don't actually think that there is a "big" gap between Serena and Kimmie. But there is most assuredly a gap established clearly in GS tournaments the past year. That should be clear to even the Kimmie Kool-Aid drinking Msykina. Let's let Kimmie win a couple big ones before moving her ahead of the Champ.

So when Serena said Els Callens was playing like number 1, or when Venus said if Justine could keep up that level all the time, she'd be number 1, they were being fools?

there is a difference. venus and serena never said justine or els has more confidence or that other BS. You have to be inside somebody's head to know that. If Anastasia wants to praise Kim then go right ahead but she looks delusional to me.

I think Myskina is talking from her heart. Since last fall, Kim has been playing the best tennis. She's won her last 3 events, the last 2 without dropping a set...including a victory over Serena.

Does that make her the best player in the world? Not on paper, of course not. Serena and Venus have had a better 52 week period, but in the last 3-4 months, Kim has been the best player.

You can't say anything about the Hopman Cup, because it doesn't count towards official H2H, or ranking points. It's like an ex. event. You aren't hearing the commentators say something like "Oh, Monica beat Sharapova over the break"...because it doesn't matter. Same with Hopman Cup.
