Question Is there anyone Kim ISN'T friends with?

I got to see the Clijsters/Capriati match from ESPN2 as I had taped it, and they ran yet another piece about Clijsters being great friends with her opponent. This seems to happen about every match she plays. Who isn't Kim friends with?

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

I don't think she is friends with venus (only cordial) but I guess that has to do more with venus than kim. ;p

^ tis true.

From the AO semi interview, I gathered that Serena and Kim are close. Well I knew that... in Tokyo and at the Tour Champs they were buddy buddy.

Kim is so sickenly sweet... she gives me a cavity.

I think the word "friend" is thrown around way too loosely.

Jelena Dokic isn't one of Kim faves...
They used to be quite close... They played doubles together in junior tournaments...
Dokic became a top-10 player quite some time before Kim did... Kim once said in an article that Dokic was ignoring her after she became a top-10 player...

Don't know if it's really true tough...

I heard similar quotes, but that's like ancient history. They definitly patched things up last year, when they started playing doubles together again.

Kim is "friends" with almost everybody that wants to talk to her, but I think it is very superficial. She is only very good friends with Ai and maybe a couple of other players. Not with all of them.

She may get along well with most players on tour, but I heard she isn't returning Ivo Karlovic's calls at the moment.

From the looks of it You are obsessed with me. The title of the thread is "is there anyone kim isn't friends with." Well If she didn't attend justine's wedding, one of the biggest and most important days of her "friends" life, well I think that is a big sign that they are not friends.

sorry to disappoint you but as a woman I know how important a wedding day is and I would not nor have I ever missed the wedding of one of my friends nor would they miss mine.

that's false!!

Kim became top-10 before Jelena!!

Kim became top-10 in June 2001, Jelena became top-10 in September 2001!

Don't think Kim is friends with everyone, she just gets along with pretty much everyone on tour.
Maybe she's only really close to Ai and Jen.

Guess that makes life on the tour a bit easier.

True, but I'll bet you're not really friends with Maleeva either, despite statements to the contrary in your signature.
