1st Round def RUBIN 6-1 6-1
First of all, that was 6-1, 6-2. Secondly, I think Clijsters has a good chance to win, too. Her problem in big matches seems to be that she'll get off to a good start -- win the first set easily -- and then let the other player back in. I think that the first set tonight will be key. If Clijsters wins the first set, don't be surprised if she loses the match. If she loses the first set, but wins the second, then I think that will bode much better for her.
Also watch Williams. If she's showing any ill effects of her long match yesterday, I think that Clijsters will be able to take advantage. If not, then I think she has a much better shot of winning the title. If they're both at their best, I think that Williams will come out on top, but if she's tired or has a let down, then I think Clijsters will take it. If it comes down to a tight battle in the third, then I give Williams the edge again, because I don't know that Clijsters has that killer instinct yet. She seems much more relaxed, more "If I lose, I lose," than Williams does, and if it's tight, then that could be her downfall.
