Kim the cheerleader

I am watching some of the opening Spain v Aus. DavisCup match,and I must say it makes Me feel a bit sad that Kim spat the dummy on the Fed Cup ,in Her words to make a statement to the ITF, because it wasn't held where She thought it should be... so Kim thinks what will I do next? oh I know! I'll fly down under and play cheerleader for My lookalike boyfriend in the male equivalent of the Fed Cup.Am I the Lone Ranger in thinking this is a sad message for Womans tennis and are We heading back to the days when a Woman's place was in the kitchen?

That was a good post.
I think why Kim did not want to play Fed Cup is that it does not mean much to her, if it did, she would be there no matter where it is played. But who can blame her, the top 200 see it the same way .
I think she was just too tired and wanted to be with her boyfriend in Australia(I am not even sure if it is in Australia), but anyway, he is struggling and she wants to support him.
Also, he does the same thing for her, so I see no problem with it.

Have fun Kim

Yeah, but say it.....you know donīt try to come with a principle-stand and stuff. Just say I didnīt want to play, like Justine did....she didnīt want to play, but she didnīt want to be seen as the mean and country-downer Kim.

you are so harsh on kimmy.
I think she was considered meaner when she said what she meant. She could have said I am tired only and not played, but she got her message accross. I think she was both tired and wanted to be with her boyfriend. She does not care for Fed Cup, as I said, and as she showed, and that's fine, but she wants to make it something more special by having people in the stands and actually watch it, unlike in Russia, where the ones that do sow up, show up with a vodka and dooze off.

Fed Cup and Davis Cup are totally different even though they should be similar in theory. The Davis Cup semis were held in September so that's a difference but the big difference is that one of the countries in the final always hosts the final. You wouldn't get a final in France if it's Australia vs. Spain. The Davis Cup format assures that there will always be a good crowd for the ties because there will always be a home team.

And also even if Kim had played Fed Cup, she would be in Australia right now. No way she would miss the DC final unless she absolutely had to. Davis Cup is huge in Australia. Its popularity level can't even be compared to Fed Cup. Davis Cup means a lot to the Aussie team and by association, it means a lot to Kim as well!

She didnīt say she didnīt want to play. She said it was a protest against ITF because they put the Fed in Russia. While Iīm sure that even if it was in Belgian, she wouldnīt have played.

Yeah she did. She also said she was tired and didn't want to play if it was going to be in Russia.

She said she would have played if it was in Belgium.

Basically her 2 choices are go to Russia (even though you don't want to) extent your already long season by a week, then fly to Australia...or go straight to Aus, skip fed cup and have an extra week off..

Gee that's a tough decision

She said she WOULD have played if it was in Belgium.

I don't know about Justine..I think should would have played as well if it was in Belgium..If I'm not mistaken she only said she wasn't going after it was announced that it would be in Russia.

They both said they would've have played if it was in Belgium. I think the fact that it was played in Russia was the deciding factor for both of them. (Personally can't say I blame them)
