Exclamation Even Though Kim Won Tonight, I Think The Belgian Domination May Be Over

Yes, the YEC match was a dud, but there was something I noticed in Kim's game. She was down 0-30 on some of her service games and if she was playing Justine, Jennifer or either Williams sister, she would not have held serve.

Having said that, I think this Belgian domination is going to end like the Williams sisters domination ended the middle of this year. The reasons are that the sisters are coming back to give the Belgians some competition, both Kim and Justine showed some vunerability in their games at this YEC and plus like the sisters last year, they have a lot of points to defend and the acutally have a lot more than the sisters and as we saw this year, not everything can be defended.

The dominance that occured when the Williams sisters went out with injuries, but they acutally dominated the clay court season, but again, Venus was injured and Serena decided to only play one tournament.

Their NEVER was Belgian dominance....they dominated in absence of the sisters. They know it and everybody knows it.

Always bet on black!

Serena played 3 clay matches (Charleston, Rome, and RG) and each of those events were won by a Belgian. I'm not trying to stirr up anything but don't make it seem like the clay season was dominated by the Belgians because the Williams were not there. The Belgians played 5 clay tournaments and they won 4 of them. The Belgians won ALL Clay Tier Is or higher.

anyhow, I don't want to make excuses but it has been a long year and using the YEC to indicate how well the Belgians will do next year is kinda useless.

And oh what coincidence, what happened after wimbledon as well?!

Yeah, that´s right....NO Williams on tour anymore. That sure helped. The sisters dominated with EVERYONE on tour.

True, but they stepped up and won the tournaments in their absence. I don't think that will happen next year becaus what goes up must come down and they will.
