Not sure. I have been wishing so since AO this year and now see what she has done in the GS so far...well I sure hope she does though!



So this is love, Mmmmmm
So this is love
So this is what makes life divine
I'm all aglow, Mmmmmm
And now I know
The key to all heaven is mine
My heart has wings, Mmmmmm
And I can fly
I'll touch every star in the sky
So this is the miracle that I've been dreaming of
Mmmmmm
Mmmmmm
So this is love


A dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep, in dreams you lose your heartaches, whatever you wish for, you keep

I doubt it. If V and S get put on the same side, then that is a big plus for Clijsters, but if V and S are on opposite sides, Clijsters has little to no chance IMHO because Venus would be in her semi.

Hmmm....does this say something: the last FOUR opens have been won by a Williams! On hardcourts it´s just hard for people to beat them, specially Kim. ´Cause there´s nothing Kim that the sisters don´t do better. The only way is that Serena and Venus are on the same half and tire each other out. Otherwise......wait till next year for slam no.1 for Kimmie girl!

No. Venus and Serena, especially Venus, really want to win this one. Kim will not win on the hardcourts of New York....ever. Hopefully, Venus will lift her 5th Grand Slam Trophy!

i don't think so. the us open seems to be really dominated by the americans. however seles won't be there (will she?) so that opens up a spot but there will still be venus, serena, lindsay and jen. something else that concerns me is that match kim had with kuznetsova last year at the us open.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

Kim's best chance will be if Vee and Ree end up on the same side. I don't think she can beat Venus if she is healthy.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Kim will be given an easy draw as usual and get to the semis where she will run into a williams, and come up short again.

Her time has definitely come and she is clearly a superior player than the WS. An overloaded schedule and a weak coach stands in the way of that GS win this year though.
The press will be all over her and she will win the Australian Open 2004 thanks to some focus.

My prediction :

- She grabs that #1 spot and looses the final against Serena Williams.
- Kim Clijsters wins the Australian Open 2004.

Serena will defend her title successfully.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.
