Well done Kim! :bounce: :bounce:

After that nervous start she played superbly in the next two sets! :)

She's the first to defeat Venus in a final since Linz 2000! :eek:

Why am I not upset about this loss?:rolleyes:

May 5th, 2002, 02:20 PM
Great come back victory for Kim, I thought she was a "goner" in the first set and a good come back by Venus after trailing 4-1 in the 3rd set..she sure made it interesting..she had Kimmie by the throat at 4-3 up 40-30 and Kim serving but Kim managed to hold her serve to make it 5-3 and that was the determining point of the match I think.:bounce: Congrats Kim, a well deserved win!!:D


May 5th, 2002, 02:21 PM

Congrats Kim :)

May 5th, 2002, 02:40 PM
BTW, I think I deserve some credit as well;) The moment I started tickling, Kim started winning ;) (Kim, I'd be happy with half of that prize money. I'll send you my account number)

May 5th, 2002, 02:43 PM
Thank you Tine ;)

May 5th, 2002, 02:55 PM
congrats and thanx to kimmie, she makes my "5 de mayo" even better and happier, thanx kim again:kiss:

May 5th, 2002, 02:56 PM

I cannot believe you cheated Venus from her hambug title ;)

Anyway, congrats to Kim for her effort, I thought she has no chance but face a straight set loss when Venus roll pass her in teh first set. Look forward to see some highlight tomorrow

Anyone in UK, they are showing in eurosport on Monday 1200 noon

May 5th, 2002, 02:58 PM
Congrats Kim :D

May 5th, 2002, 03:00 PM
No real surprise here.. On clay no one will be invincible.

At the same time this loss of Venus makes things more interesting. Now Capriati definitely has a shot at #1 in Berlin.

cappy happy

Cannot wait to see this match. Congratulations to the victorious Kim Clijsters. Evidently back from her injury in full force. This makes her a leading candidate to compete at RG.:cool:

YAY!! Congrats Kimmie :):)

May 5th, 2002, 03:40 PM
Congratulations Kim!!!!!!!! The way Venus was playing in the first set was just stunning, she couldn't keep playing like that.
Wonderful match Kim..

May 5th, 2002, 04:17 PM
Interesting that last year after 5 match winning streak on clay Venus lost to a Belgian, and hadn't won another match on clay after that.

May 5th, 2002, 04:47 PM

:kiss: :kiss: :kiss:

Very promising for RG 2002 :bounce:

May 5th, 2002, 05:03 PM
That's true Sofiane.;)

May 5th, 2002, 05:24 PM
I was in Brussel so I couldn't see the match live but I asked someone of my family to tell me by sms what were the scores and at 4-0 for Venus, I touched my necklace with a tennis racquet (it bring me luck when I'm playing too) and I said Come on Kim!!

And then game set and match Kim

CONGRATS!!!!!!! I'M SO HAPPY!!!!!!!

Now, perhaps it's better for her to take a little break after Berlin for her arm, to be in good form for Roland Garros!!!

Come on KIM :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

May 5th, 2002, 06:07 PM
Congrats on your title Kim! :)

May 5th, 2002, 06:38 PM
7 titles including 3 Tier II's, a better than .500 record against Dokic/Henin, a .500 record against V Williams/Mauresmo, wins against Hingis/Davenport, and sets won against S Williams, Seles, and Capriati. Roland Garros Final, Indian Wells Final, Australian Open Semifinal, Fed Cup Champion, and STILL the youngest player in the top 50.

Kim has now CATEGORICALLY proven that she is the class of the class of 82/83.

May 5th, 2002, 07:02 PM
I'm so proud of Kim!!! She played so great in the 2 last sets :) :) :)

CONGRATS KIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May 5th, 2002, 08:46 PM
Another congrats Kimmie, wonderful match :kiss:
