Will Kim lose her first match?

Venus was expected to do great in France to take the #1 spot; she lost in the first round.

Mauresmo was the hotest player before the French in 2001; she lost in the first round.

Kim is very hot at the moment and the public is waiting for her to do great; WILL SHE CRUMBLE?

i'm a die hard kim-fan and i must say ,i realy don't like all the pressure the media puts on her ,neither do i like her new role as "the player that can stop the williams domination".....
however,kim 's not the kind of girl who's gonna let all these factors get to her........i think she's gonna win her first rounds in two sets,and hopefully she'll be ready and lift her level that tiny little bit in the second week,to the top of her game.....
when she's on,she can beat everyone,but it all depends on sooooo many things ,like she said herself,you have to do everything wright for two weeks!!
kim is confident without being arrogant,has a terrific fighting spirit ,but is as friendly and down to earth as they get.
to me ,she'll always be a winner

No. Clijsters is one of the mentally strongest players I have seen over the years. To me an indication of a player's mental strength is how well they do in tournaments when they are top seeds - top seeds are usually the drawcards and everybody expects them to do well. I think Kim has won every tournament when she has been top seed - to me that says alot about how she is able to cope with pressures and expectations.

But I still think Amanda Coetzer will win (sorry Kim...)

I remember Kim crumbling to the pressure during the French open 02 after she had got to the final the past year. It's a possibility. But I think she has matured more and has more experience.

But anything can happen. Some people like being the underdogs and like the pressure not being on them. However, some relish being the favorites.

GOOD LUCK

Venus
Serena

1st round: Samantha Reeves
2nd round: Petra Mandula
3rd round: Iva Majoli
4th round: Amanda Coetzer
QF: Chanda Rubin
SF: Serena Williams

F (if she gets there): Venus Williams, Lindsay Davenport, Jennifer Capriati or Justine Henin
