Deja vu for Clijsters?
"Williams' straight set win came before a capacity crowd of 14,400 that was completely behind local favorite Clijsters.
``I really felt good when I saw the crowd,'' said Clijsters.
Two years ago, Kim Clijsters came in to the finals of Indian Wells with the mob, er, crowd completely for her and against SERENA WILLIAMS and any member of the WILLIAMS family that was within ear shot of those desert thugs. But, SERENA was able to overcome the Belgian player and the cowd for the win.
The Oz semi finals brought about just about the same situation, but the crowd was not as ride as the IW group and Kim, once again, was defeated by SERENA.
The finals of the Diamond Games had nearly 15000 fans all in the support of Clijsters and VENUS ignored the mob of waffle makers and concentrated on Kim and put a decisive win on the Belgian with some her own sweet chocolate game.
These incidents may not necessarily show the weakness of Clijsters in a big game, but displays a clear picture of why V&S are the best players in the world because they can not only overcome top ranked players, but their raucus fans as well.
