i think Dementieva can pull off the upset, but the question is, which Elena will show up. Will she try to put up a right. she can hang with kim, she just starts to spray so many balls.

2001-11-11 Fed Cup (WG-F) BEL vs. RUS Indoor Clay RR Kim Clijsters (BEL) 6-0 6-4

4 of the five meetings have been three sets. i think it will be 3 sets as well.

Rubber match for 2000 and 2001. Kim takes the series in 2 sets.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

unless Alyona's serve has improved dramatically, then she could pull an upset otherwise it's all according to Kim.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

I think it'll be an easy win for Kim. I wouldn't be surprised if Kim served Elena a bagel in the first set. I think Kim will have more of a fight in the second set. So I'm saying something like 6-1, 6-3. But heck...it could be 6-0, 6-1.

It's alright

You can come on out

Kim is a great player, but people seem to underestimate Elena. Elena has got speed and power and a massive forehand to trouble Kim. Both are young rivals, and as stated, neither has played the other for a long time.

This is the pick of the 1st round matches today IMO.

I hope Elena comes out firing and closes this out.

Easy match for Kim, I think. I hope Elena fight it out though.

Kim 7-5 6-0
