Clijsters - Dementieva - another great match, great atmosphere.
Kim started off very tentatively. Elena's serve started off well, then went AWOL halfway through the 1st set - but her solid groundstrokes kept her in the set. Kim led 5-3, but Dementieva held for 4-5. Kim made a couple of errors and lost the game to make it 5-5. Elena held for 6-5 and Kim then led 40-15 in the 12th game before eventually losing the game and set.
Kim raced to 4-0 in the 2nd before Elena managed to hold her serve. But the set was over aithin 2 games with the crowd going mad - multiple mexican waves and all - brilliant!
Kim raced to an early 3-0 double break lead in the final set and never looked back. The only glitch was at 5-1 when she lost her serve when serving for the match. However a great forehand down-the-line return off a Dementieva 2nd serve sealed the win.
Great match, great atmosphere.
Not sure of the final score in the safina - srebotnik doubles match. Safina and Srebotnik led 3-0 in the opening set before eventually losing it 6-4. We left at 2-2 in the 2nd set as my friend and I had to drive back to Brussels.
So tomorrow - world no 1 vs world no 2 - my ticket is already packed in my travelbag - can't wait!
