will kim ever have the confidence back to beat serena

with kim losing a 5-1 lead to put away serena it will obviously hurt her alot. This match may be crucial in future matches between them as kim will not come in with the same confidence as she did yesterday and will always remember this match when she is ahead against serena in future matches. this is similar to when henin plays clijsters as the match in the french open has really hurt her when she gave away a big lead to lose and has beaten clijsters very few times since.

so that Serena will be old and rusty by the time Kim catchs up

there can never be enough sister slams and why not

Oh, she'll definitely be back! She'll learn from it and come back stronger. She should've won the match but let it slip. She's got determination and positive attitude. I think she's learned a bit from Lleyton.

It might help her. Kim might remember what happened last time and that Serena's gonna fight till the last point. She will try her best not to let Serena back into a match she has such a big lead on. Kim is a great person with a fighting spirit, I don't think it will effect her too much.

Kim was very good last night. She's the real deal, and the road will be tough.

And don't forget about Venus. Serena isn't the only Williams Kim has to worry about.

Venus and Serena are sitting on top of the WORLD

I hope she reads the papers today and proves those journalists wrong

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

o.k., so the loss was tough. BUT: she now knows for sure that serena, the no. 1 player in the world, is totally within her reach. this must give her a lot of confidence, not the other way round.
