Does Tina have a chance against Kim?

or is grass her best surface? Kim leads H2H 2-1, but last two have been very close.

2002 's-Hertogenbosch Pisnik 7-6 6-2
2003 's-Hertogenbosch Clijsters 7-6 7-6

Tina's a really good player, she has a lot of variety, nice slice backhand, and she's not afraid to come into the net either. Most girls these days don't have this sort of game and I think that makes her even more dangerous. However, I think Kim is going to win this match. She loves playing indoors as her results have shown, and I think she will be able to cope with Pisnik.

I would love for Tina to win though - I have always been a big big fan of her, and am very happy she has continued to rise up and improve. Hopefully it will be a good match

And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

I think grass is her best surface, although I have only seen her on grass and clay. But as Randy H just said she has a good slice backhand and likes to come to the net - which suits grass.

They have played in Sydney in 2001 and Kim won in 2 sets comfortably that surface is slot more like Zurich than grass. If Kim plays like last week and against srebotnik she should win, but Pisnik has troubled her in the past so definately Pisnik has a defeinite chance to do some damage.

If Kim plays at her "normal level", she won't have problem beating Tina.

If Kim plays as yesterday no.
However I'm sure Tina will play her best tennis and the match will be interesting

I really like Pisnik too. I was cheering my head off for her when she won Bol way back in 2000. That was such an excellent tournament for her. I want that slice. When I hit a slice in a match, I sometimes think of Tina. (Sad, I know)
