She should have won it 6-3, 6-4, but I am not complaining.

IMO, she is the best player in the world right now!

I agree. I'm a huge Sharapova fan and a huge Henin-Hardenne fan, but right now, Kim is number 1 in the world entering her favorite time of the year(second favorite maybe next to indoor season). All due credit to Kim, she played a great match. Her retrieval skills are unmatched by anyone but the Williams.

What she consistantly did to Dementieva (2x), Davenport, Mauresmo and now Sharapova...straight set victories....AMAZING :worship:

She has come out of nowhere and dominated this month. Now let's see what happens when Henin-Hardenne gets healthy :eek:

Which might explain why she can't beat them the way she has beaten the other players.

congrats to maria as well :kiss: :hearts: she wasn't at her best but she never stopped fighting, she's had 2 really good wins!

i am very happy at the moment, just hope kim carries that form at the French Open and the rest better watch out! :devil: :devil:

CONGRATS TO KIM!

Well, I'm naturally very sad, but guess I can't complain; both players had rain delays, both had the blustery conditions to cope with, and Kim simply was the better of the two. I didn't see the match, so this is purely my guess, but can't help feeling that as Maria was able to push Kim to 6-5 rather than losing 6-4, if she could have taken it to a tiebreak, she'd have won that, and the 3rd set. :sad:. I think Maria would have been able to come back from behind. But I have no complaints, Just a bit sad. Still, she was the second best player out of a very strong field here in Miami, so that's a real positive to take out of this:):sad:

:bigclap:

Kim is playing on a surreal level.

Still gets tight during the big moments though. :)

Anyway, I am thrilled at her comeback. 14 matches in a row. Is there someone who has done better?

But I'm glad if she had to lose, it was to Kim.

I agree.

Kim has played remarkably. The conditions were rough, the second set was sloppy, but she came through.

Keep your head up Maria. Your future is bright. :bounce: :bounce:

What a great comeback story. So nice to see one of the game's truly nice players doing so well again. And her reaction after the last point was precious.

Congrats Kimmie! :)

Just returned to learn that Kim won. And I wanted to :worship: to her amazing two-tourney run. I don't know about her being the best in the world right now, just judging from her IW and NASDAQ100 wins, but if she were to also win the FO, then I'd certainly be convinced.
Anyway, CONGRATS to KIM!! She's an AMAZING and LOVABLE athlete. :bounce:
