Sharapova forced Clijsters to do a full split...

Damn, i'm sure it hurts big time, Kim tried to chase the ball from Maria, but it was too good and Kim tried to split like always, but this one ended up she had to do full split.


The funny thing is on the interview Kim said that it didn't hurt at all WOW!!!

Maju terus Tenis Indonesia!

kim I love you but those splits make me nuts. I am so scared they have to carry her off the court one day

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

straddle splits not just splits


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

nah, when youve been doing straddles forever, your muscles become used to it.

plus her muscles are already really warm..I would be more nervous to see her doing something like that early in a match when her muscles might not be as warm.

Aranxta used to do a similiar move, but not such a deep split as Kim, and she did end up turning her ankle, but recovered from it fairly quickly. Kim's splits look athletic to me, but still dangerous. Your muscles can definitely get used to it, but that can also make you less cautious/more casual and that's when accidents can happen....
