Was this Kim's biggest opportunity?

Serena is my favorite, but I thought the collapse of Kim's concentration last night was very sad. I thought that was the best opportunity she had ever been granted. She was on such a high so to lose it in an instant was such an unfortunate waste of everything she worked for.

It was as if someone pressed a giant reset button.

My question is this: Can Kim continue to play like she has been playing and continue to go into the following slams as the the biggest threat to the tour after the Williams sisters?



Lleyton + Iroda = by me

Well Serena's playing better now than Jennifer was at RG 01, if I recall correctly, so you could say that was a better chance for Kim. There are probably others which escape me too.

But she's 19 for goodness sake. She's at the start of her big chances, not the end. Of course she'll come back and have more chances. Other players have come back from much worse losses and Kim has more maturity and perspective than most 30 year olds, let alone 19 year olds!

btw, "threat to the tour" sounds like you think they are all terrorists, LOL. I assume you mean most likely to beat others, not most likely to destroy ?!

Sorry, don't really think about the answer to the title, but the answer to the question at the bottom of my post.

Actually, I did mean it in a terrorist sense...

You said it joy! These losses are just getting Kim ready for her big Slam win. I'm gonna still root for Serena but when Kim wins a slam I'll shout her out and be happy for her also.
