kim's match reminded me of toronto

kim was in cruise control in the first set but then it all changed dramatically after failing to convert on those BPs in the 3rd game

however jelena played much better than lina did in canada and i think kim was better too ...

Yeah, I said...if Jelena losses that game it´s over..but she hung though and in the end won it.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

according to the stats Kim won more points than Jelena, but Jelena had more winners and coverted all her break points.

Jelena fans must be feeling reallllly happy, considering the slump Jelena was in.

Kim-Lina Krasnoroutskaya 1-6 6-4 6-1

Kim said that she would play three of the four tune-up tournaments before the US open, if she played well at those first three tournaments..
When she did play well at Stanford, San Diego and Los Angeles.....she didn't want to go to Toronto.
She only did go because she was the new #1 player.

She did won the first match from Francesca Schiavone with 6-1 6-2 ........that was a demonstration from Kim.
Against Lena.....she did won the first set to let everyone know who's the best........and did give it away in the second and third set.

She also did it now against Dokic to give justine an oppertunity to get #1....otherwise, Justine could forget #1 when the Williams comes back next year....Kim is like Santa Claus.

Justine may thank Kim for such gift.

Kim is sweet but not that sweet.

I'm sure Kim wanted to lose to Jelena because she knew Jelena was having a lousy year and thought she would gift her 100points

thanks for the

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.
