Lleyton or Elke?

Who do you think it would be harder for Kim to play against, her sister or her boyfriend?

I know Kim wouldn't get the chance to play against lleyton too much but it's possible like in Hopman Cup or if they played mixed doubles with somebody except each other.

I'm not really sure who it would be harder to play against but I think i'd vote for Elke!

Just to clear something up ( thanx disposablehero for pointing out I wasn't clear) I meant which would be harder to play against mentally and emotionally... obvious Lleyton won be harder to beat!

Just wondering who voted for Elke and who voted for Lleyton and why??

I voted for Elke just because it would be harder to play against your sister. Like I think i would feel worse about beating my sis on national tv than my boyfriend!

Kim once said she and Lleyton never play matches cos she doesn't want to lose 6-0 6-0!

Kim would beat Elke with ease and I think she would chose for Elke as well as possible opponent.

I vote for Lleyton and I pure go on how I would feel. when I would play one of my sisters in what ever thing I would want her to beat very very bad, just the sister competing, wanting to be the best of the family, when it was my boyfriend, I would maybe be distracted looking at him during the match

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

lol @ arn... i think Kim is being a bit hard on herself... she wouldn't lose 6/0 6/0

And i agree with irma... i think i'd be distracted too playing against my bf... especially if he was as hot as Lleyton lol

of course Elke. If Kim play Leytton it wont be in an important match for Kim. But she can meet Elke one day in matches as Williams do, and that has to be terrible. Im sure u always want the best for ur sister...and its you who is stopping her run

I'm not sure thye question is clear enough. I voted for Elke, because I assume it meant "more psychologically distressing".

I imagine playing against Lleyton is no big deal. Most women would expect to lose to their boyfriend, and not have a problem with it. Those feelings would only be magnified if said boyfriend happens to be the best tennis player in the world.

On the other hand, showing up your little sister when you have nothing to prove could be trying.

Not long ago Kim said that she played a set against Lleyton and managed to break him once but still lost 6-2. But she didn't knew if he did it on purpose
