"Tomorrow is another day and a new match," said Sprem. "We'll see." Her captain, Goran Prpic, went further, talking up his team's chances of causing a major upset especially in the light of Kim Clijsters' ongoing wrist injury.

"Obviously Kim is not 100% fit. She is missing too many backhands, more than usual, he said. Why don't we think Karolina can beat Kim? She can play the tennis to do it. It's certainly not going to be easy for Kim."

Kim is rusty? She should get some WD40.

K-lina is better than Jelena K. (at least in singles) and Jelena was able to win a set...

25% I think.. seeing that lots of game against Kirsten were already close.. Kim is much much better..

in the second set, k-lina only lost 5 points on serve and broke kristen 3 times. yes, there were close games, but they were mainly on kristen's serve

I think Kim will win easily. She rarely plays 2 bad matches in a row.

all he said was that kim missed more backhands than usual - that's exactly what happened. he even implied that kim is the favorite tomorrow, but that k-lina has a chance to beat her.

Yup, and it will be tough for Kim. Take K-Lina out of the formula, and you still have her injury and lack of match play. Those 2 things alone are a little offputting.

I just hope it's a great match. Like 18-16 3rd set? :lick:

LOL!!

K-Lina will win in 2! AJMO! HRVRAKALAKA KALICA!

I'm with you, I really hope K-Lina takes it. But if it cant be, then I would love it for it to be THE MATCH OF THE WEEK.

She was awesome today! I loved how she played. After not really liking her that much from the first match I saw. This one was very funny to watch. I like her now. :wavey:

I say K-lina in two!

Considering Kim can park five feet behind the baseline and just return everything?

Slim.

You should listen to his interview on the fed cup site it shows even less respect, but all it does is take pressure of Kim and put it on Sprem, I think Kim doesn't care about that she knows how she can play and that is all that matters:)


in the second set, k-lina only lost 5 points on serve and broke kristen 3 times. yes, there were close games, but they were mainly on kristen's serve

Kim's serve is a lot stronger than Kirsten's so if she had that much trouble breaking Kirsten.......


Kim played awesome in the final set against Kostanic

Nice to take into the next match, it just took Kim a while to warm up:)

Even if Kim plays bad Sprem will have to play at her very best I mean she has lost to Stosur twice this year, no disrespect for Stosur but she is a player Sprem should be beating consistently.

Sprem just overpowered Kirsten and Kirsten couldn't play her own game. To over power Kim you have to either be a man or have a last name of Williams and unfortunately for Sprem she doesn't fit in either category. Kim will love Sprem's game a lot more than Kostanic's.

I'm not saying Kim will win, just that the Croatian coach needs to get a dose of what Kim can do and show her respect:o
