Kim or Justine?

WHO DO YOU PREFER??

ive been a Clijsters lover for coming upto 3 years now and while there was a period of a couple of weeks when the hype over her beating Serena was getting to me, ive been infatuated with her and her game. i just love the running, those painful looking splits, and the cute Lleyton like fist pump she does. also shes younger (as with Serena/Venus, i love the younger player ). GO KIM

so who is YOUR favourite Belgian and why???

(in the top 5....and a women of course )

Clijsters has been one of my favorites for a while now because of her amazing splits, huge ground strokes, and tendancy to hit a drop-shot out of nowhere. That beind said, Henin is a player who is just amazing to watch when she is playing well, so I like them both.

Kim's my favourite, coz she's going out with Lleyton and has been sooo good for his attitude. She's just a sweetie! And she's the closest thing we have to a really good Aussie woman player.(No offense Pratt, and Molik, you'll get there in a couple of years )

I really really like Justine, though. She's got such a beautiful game. It's really lovely to watch.

C'mon Kim

Sorry to break the trend, but I always liked Justine more, and still do.

Justine all the way!

Why?

She plays beautiful tennis. Her groundstrokes, her volleys, her serve, when it's all working it's working because of amazing technique.

She plays attacking tennis. She doesn't tend to wait for her opponent to make mistakes but actively takes her game to her opponent. She mixes it up, attacks the net and makes a match _exciting_.

She's unconcerned with her appearance. She's cute but she clearly doesn't care about what people think of her looks. I'm like that too, and I like it in others.

She's reserved. She seems to be someone of intense emotions but she's not about to let anyone and everyone see them. Once again, I'm like that too and I find it attractive in others.

Overall - she plays lovely tennis and I find her intriguing and appealing as a personality.

Why not Kim?

I don't like her game as much. She's too erratic for me. In particular, I find the wild shots, splits, etc unappealing.

I don't like her personality as much. She's clearly a nice girl but she's not the kind of person that I personally find attractive or intriguing, precisely because she's so open and extrovert. That's not a criticism - she's just not my type of person.

Justine

Her game is just a joy to watch. Her game has more variety. Her game is more precise, more elegant, and more beautiful. Justine, as well as Kim, is overflowing with talent. Her shot selection is brilliant and her finesse is among the best. I just really like watching Justine play because she isn't all about power. She's more about perfecting the little things and making her game different from the rest. Her backhand is the best in the game. She gets so much power from it and almost always perfect placement. I just think her game is more exciting because it's not always band-bang-bang!!!!

The only thing I don't like is her mental breakdowns against Kim and Venus. I don't quite understand why she doesn't think she can beat them. Maybe her win over Serena will help her more with this.

Kim!!

Why? I simply love her!

Of course Justine...
I used to like both girls, now my love for Kim is starting to fade (that will never happen with my love for Justine) because of different reasons;

She's a very sweet girl, but just like saki I think she's too sweet, too open, you know what I mean?
Justine still has that little something extra over her, (for me) and she can be a real bitch sometimes, hehe. For example: "I was injured too and I didn't do a song or a dance about it like Lindsay! "

*AHEM* lol

Another reason is that Kim plays REALLY REALLY passive from time to time. Sure, she can overpower or outplay lower ranked opponents, but when she faces Serena or Venus she seems to lose all that aggression, whereas in Justine's case, she goes for her shots, mixes it up, makes the other work for her points, that's just the kind of mentality I like in a player!

There are more reasons, but I'd just be a bore... lol.
