Split Personality=Pam Shriver
Pam kills me. She says one thing this week, and then the next week its like she contradicts herself.
Anyway. I also don't even understand half the crap she and this Clif Drysdale are saying. you have to people playing against eachother, and Cliff says that this is an important match to decide who can challenge the Williams Sisters.
That in itself sounded extremely stupid to me, when you need to face the williamses inorder to actually "challenge" them. But what got be 2 seconds later was, Pam saying, Kim beaten them, she just hasn't won in the majors. First of all, its been over a year since Kim has even beaten venus. She beat venus on venus' worst surface Clay Hambug last year. Since then, Venus has beaten her 4 straight times I believe. Then she beat Serena at the Championhips, she has lost 2 straight to Serena. So where the hell Pam figures that Kim has figured out how to beat williamses outside of the slams I dont' know.
Kim just reminds me so much of Martina Hingis. But in Martina's prime, she was winning tournies and slams. Kim is winning tournies, and she isn't even winning them over the top 2 players in the world. She shows a lot and has a lot of potential. But Serena and Venus do as well, and they can get better and have more to offer.
People are saying, is kIm deserving of number 1? Let me put it to you this way. There are two ways to play the ranking system. One way being the "great" way but not the "best" way. The other being the "best" way, but not "great" for your overall record.
Serena is deserving of number 1, b/c she is winning the slams and tournies, although she doesn't play enough. you can be number 1 this way. Kim is deserving of number 1 b/c she plays the best system. She has figured out the ranking system, and wants to get to the top by consistently getting to the finals and semis. Although personally she has a loosing record this year in her tournies played. She plays more, so there fore she is just going to get more points at the end of the day. Yeah she always looses to Venus and Serena. But she beats everyone else. I dunno if she will ever figure out how to beat Venus and Serena. When she is playing them, everyone is saying how she isn't playing that great etc. But in fact, its the sisters playing so well. Good examples are Serena vs. jennifer. Every time serena wins in the third set, Serena was the better player. I don't hear Jennifer fans saying Jennifer backed off. I don't hear Jennifer stating "she" backed off. Jennifer and her fans realize Serena was just too good, but Jennifer played so well, she foreced serena to come up with the goods and beat her.
Serena has done the same thing against Kim, and Venus has done the same against Kim. Serena/Venus best against Kim, Serena and Venus will always come out the winner no matter what. Kim in fact does rely on their errors, and when venus and serena are making them she is ahead, when they top and pick up their games, kim fans keep trying to tell people how Kim is backing off. no serena and venus are just not missing shots any more. the errors are becoming winners. hello people. this is not hard to figure out.
Kim is a great player. Pam knows this. But 1 day she is saying the right things, the next she is making it sound like she is really true number 1 material when in fact she isn't even close that when you compare her to venus and serena.
