Q. What are your keys for beating Sharapova?

KIM CLIJSTERS: The key for the front door and then one for the back door (laughing). I don't know.

I have to be very aggressive. That's the thing against those kind of girls now, you have to play aggressive, you have keep your unforced errors down. You have to ‑‑ just have to be there from the start as well because once they start going, they get on a roll and they just start cruising. And, you know, I saw that today as well against Venus. Once she gets into that rhythm, she hits the ball so clean and so flat and so hard. So you just have to, you know, maybe try to break that rhythm sometimes like I maybe did against Lindsay in the final of Indian Wells as well.


I think Kim has it right. You beat Sharapova at her own game or you mix it up a lot and frustrate the hell out of her. You keep it close and don't let her pull ahead.

Clijsters should be able to beat Sharapova but we'll see what happens.

well certainly mixing it up and getting tons of balls back and keeping it close are the keys to winning. that's clijsters' game, and i wouldn't expect her to try to do anything less. it's just hard to do when maria's playing as well as she is. when every ball is being struck hard and close to the lines, it's hard to throw in a slice or get on the offensive. additionally, maria serves more effectively and if she plays consistent, she outhits clijsters for sure.

lots of drop shots will keep Maria in check. Maria can not run well, she looks like big foot running to the net.

Come on Kim you can do it!! 60 60 would be great!!

You're such a pathetic obsessive Maria hater.

Kim is going to have to do more than just keep the ball coming back like she did against Dementieva. Maria is far superior to Elena at this point, and the winner of that match will be the one who dictates the ball first.

I frankly have the feeling that Kim has a lot of work to do on Saturday.
