Kim does it again
It's a bad scheduling again. She is supposed to play Hopman Cup, Sydney and then Aus Open.
Let's compare schedule of big 4:
Justine: Sydney, Aus Open; 3 weeks in a row; possible # of matches:11
Serena: Hopman, Aus Open; 1 week, week off, 2 weeks; possible # of matches:11+4(doubles at HC)=15
Venus: Hong Kong ex, Aus Open; 3 days, week off, 2 weeks; possible # of matches:9+2(doubles at HK)=11
Kim: HC, Sydney, Aus Open; 4 weeks in a row; possible # of matches: 15+4(doubles at HC)=19
And she still may decide to play doubles at the Aus Open.
So she will play 4 weeks in a row at 40° C (105° F) and when she goes in the 2nd week at the Aus Open, she will be tired (mentally and phisically) and she will already pass the peak of her form.
I really thought her main goal for 2004 is to win a GS but with this schedule I'm pretty sure it won't be Aus Open.
