12 is a lot. The problem is this perception that Justine has been consisently outpacing Kim for a long time. That is simply false. At the beginning of this April, 4 and a half months ago, Justine's career was simply not close to Kim's by any measure. She has had a very strong 4 and a half months.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

you're absolutely right. Justine and Kim did hit quite a few milestones at similar times (making GS finals, getting into the top 10 etc.) but Kim had an overall slightly better 2001 and she took off like greased lightning after the US Open last year. It's funny how people forget how, before the Aussie Open, Kim was being described as 'the world's best player' and 'the chosen one' (funny, she hadn't won a grand slam then either ).

Justine was pretty much written off after the AUSOpen as someone who couldn't compete against the power hitters and was doomed by her mental frailty, never to beat someone ranked above her...Venus, Serena and Kim all had owned her for the previous couple of months and Kim's ascent to no.2 wasn't nearly as big a surprise as Justine being the one to break Serena's winning streak. Forget about April, even after having a phenomenal clay season, Justine was much less of a favourite for RG than either Kim or Serena. For most 'experts' Kim was still the better bet even going into the finals.

It's amazing what difference a few months can make.
you can interchange the word 'Kim' for 'Justine' in the above paragraph and it'll start sounding a lot like the talk going on right now

On clay Justine enters 4 tournaments and wins 3 of them
Kim enters 3 and only wins 1

On hard Justine enters 4 tournaments and wins 3 of them
Kim enters 7(!!!!!!) and only wins 3 of them...

Justine clearly plays better when she does play. Kim just plays more.

So I'd say that Kim's got an overall better career so far, but this year is being a lot better for Justine. She's won six tournaments and four of them were tier I or better. Also she's played less than Kim, so it makes that compliment much more deserved for Justine.

Yeah.

Hate to tell you, but 6+2+1+7=16, not 14.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

For the past 20 weeks, yes. Before that, Justine could have played as much as she wanted, she wasn't going to match Kim. Kim will be back. Soon.

12 is a lot for her short career, Jen only has 13 which I was even more shocked about, I thought she had a lot more wins.
