:D Now K-lina gets to play her :)

I just hope she's in shape, since she stated she was tired. Anyways, since Kim is probably not at the her best level of play, I think that Karolina (or even Jelena,why not?!) have a chance to win against her. Always something interesting and unusual comes up with Fed and Davis cup, why not here and now? :clap2:
Good luck to Croatia, however, I do hope Kim is ok and healthy now. :aparty:

Clijsters to play Fed Cup against Croatia
April 23, 2004

BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) -- Kim Clijsters (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/49/)' injured left wrist has healed enough to allow her to play for Belgium against Croatia in this weekend's Fed Cup.

The second-ranked Clijsters had been sidelined for five weeks and her availability is a big boost for Belgium, which is without top-ranked Justine Henin-Hardenne (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/319/), who is recovering from an energy-sapping virus.

Belgium, the 2001 champion, would have been in a tough position in the first round of the world group without both stars.

hometown of Bree, opening against Jelena Kostanic (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/172/) on Saturday.

She is expected to play with a wrist brace. Because she has a two-fisted backhand, both wrists are essential to her game.

``I'll be a little bit hesitant in the beginning, but I will definitely go for it,'' she said Friday.

Clijsters injured her left wrist last month and kept it in a brace until last weekend when she played a charity match against fiancee Lleyton Hewitt (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/15/).



Kirsten Flipkens will play the second match against Croatia's Karolina Sprem. Reverse singles and possible doubles are set for Sunday. Updated on Friday, Apr 23, 2004 10

I'm a tad confused; earlier she's injured and may miss Roland Garros...now she's alright? I hope she isn't rushing her return.

Well it was just her prediction, so she can put less pressure on her wrist.

I think Kim knows her own body well enough not to jeoprodise her chances in future tourneys - after a couple of games we should see the old Kimmy back :)

I just hope she's not rushing back too soon. Best of luck to her and Belgium!Most of the time she rushes too much and gets more injured.

"I might play this time, I like the venue and Llleyton doesn't need Me anywhere jumping up and down like a giant cheerleading Belgium basketball"
I think the Belgium coach should tell Her to bugger off!

I heard it already yesterday night on the radio, I thought it was weird since she was only gonna test today or tomorrow, but I guess not.
Happy she's playing again, it has been a bit boring without her!!
