Kim lost the second set

Kim was the better player in the first set(in 17 minute), but lost the second because of the umpire and the line-judges.
It's normal to lose concentration that way!!!
Two times in one game(it was then 2-1) the ball was called out while it was clearly in!!!
If she loses the match we know why!!!
So the final won't be boring anyore???

:devil

Why the umpire?! Only thing I remember is that let they played when they both hit some angled shots and the umpire said that the ball bounced twice or something?! It was Kim who profited from the let, because Jelena hit the back in the court and I don´t think Kim would have reached it.

Today was the same problem: Kim didn´t take her chances....Kim had break chances in almost all Jelena´s service games, but didn´t take advantage.

Always bet on black!

Most people would think that the match against Dokic would be over in 30 minutes if you did see the first set.
That was one-way tennis!!!

Did you see long rally's in the second and third set? no, Kim mostly did smach and did hold every point short.


Dokic and Justine may thank Kim for such gift.....Kim is like Santa Claus!

At 2-1 dokic-kim 2nd set dokic got 30 points undeserved that's why Kim lost her survice. and
BANDABOU i think you need glasses.I now you are happy now and you always remember the bad things of kim and never the good!!!!!!!!!!
Kim was playing so good first set 17 minute
Did you see kim's face after the umpire's mistakes? And then she lost control over the match. It even looked as if she didn't care anymore.

what are u talking about Betty. The only tough call I remember, went Clijsters's way. There were no tough calls apart from that one. The 1st set looked good for Kim because Dokic was sucking, but she changed tactics in the 2nd set. Running Kim around wasn't working.

Clijsters is so obsessed with her no1 ranking that she's playing like a maniac. If she really wants to end the year as no1, she should get ready for the YEC, where she'll have a chance to beat Henin and the others, winning tons of quality points

And that is exactly where you prove the no.1 ranking is not the reason she's playing. She's playing because she committed to these tournaments and just likes to play

But too much is too much....she plays like too often and when faced with real competition she is already burned out.

I agree, mainly the fact to be playing doubles as well might be just pushing things too far.
