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.

WILLIAMS are now beating the crowds as easily as they do their opponets, it seems.

"Desert thugs"? Eminently sensible fellows in my estimation, and indeed it is their assiduous assignation of anger and irritation to the Williams sisters' presence at Indian Wells that has ensured they will remain away for the foreseeable future, allowing new talent to shine in at least one Tier I event vis a vis the emergence of Hantuchova last year. Who knows, mayhap the likes of Myskina will make a significant breakthrough this time round and surge to a splendid victory, grinding American opposition into the ground? Oh well, just a mildly hopeful muse on my part.

And you really have to make another thread to show of about how good the Williamses are huh?

you're the first one to have excuses when they lose, and the first one to show of when they win.

Kimmy is still quite young and still improving and my hope for her is that she keeps on working really hard, plays better and wins lots.

Hey, you guys are right, maybe I need to post ANOTHER thread on the greatness of the WILLIAMS.

Oh, so now your GWH is Myskina?
You have my sympathies.

-----
assiduous assignation of anger and irritation to the Williams sisters' presence at Indian Wells"
----
All that hatred and anger at the mere presence of two black athletes is justifiable to some low minded individuals both at that event and on the board?

How very sad indeed.

I was present at the WTA final and SERENA did not seem tired, she just played awful.
Maybe to much Keyshawn the night before the final.

GO SERENA GO VENUS some people just come off as so bitter that their favorite isn't on top. Why not enjoy the success they do have, the matches up to the final, instead of tearing down their compeition?

nice match Kim too bad your fans dont have the respect you do for your competition.
