Kimmy isn't makin too much sense this year. Not playin the USO? Okay, turn your back on the tournament where you proved yourself on the major stage. And not playin RG? Even more disrespectful. First major final, and then made the finals again 2 years later. But play Wimbeldon, your least successful slam. Kim is being really stupid this year with her schedule. She shoulda just retired last year.

Because she knows that if she goes to RG she will be overshadowed by Justine and a resurgent Serena. She wants full attention to herself in her fareware tour. Warsaw is a small tournament, which means she wil be the biggest star there and will receive full attention.

That's my explanation. But honestly I couldn't care less at this point.

If so, she would have actually played the whole year. But nice theory.

I mean I love her but her career is already over and she doesn't care anymore so we shoudn't try to understand her actions.
It's really sad to quit the tour like that but what can we do?

Yepp! I mean i'm not a big Kim fan but if I was i'd be pissed that she isnt atleast playing all the majors in her final year I know shes anxious to get married and all that ish but shes throwing away her final year on tour and its just dumb to me I really could care less if she played again at all because shes just taking up space in every tourney she enters cuz its obvious her head is somewhere else

Volcana

I think that, once she won a slam, and held the #1 ranking, there just wasn't anything on tour for Clijsters. She's playing out the year for herself. She'll play a clay tournament or two to keep her ranking up. But she's decided that if she's only playing one more slam, it's going to be the biggest slam of all.

thread number 299955 on this subject...............

Everyone give it a fucking rest,Kim is playing Warsaw because she promised her Polish fans that she would come back and defend her title,roland garros is just too much for her,she wants to save her energy and body for wimbledon so she can be 100% for one last tourney of Killing Kim in full glory,i think she will PUSH very hard at wimbledon this year,and she may just spring a few suprises,roland garris is just too much for her,loads of training for matches.Some people think players are stupid for not playing a big event,thats cause these people dont realise all the off-court work thats needs to be done at a tourney

Kim is a top player, a former number one and Slam champion. Her early retirement and this year's "schedule" is going to be a pretty big talking point, therefore, threads are going to be made. People want to know why she's playing a clay court event and skipping the clay Slam. What do you expect? Everyone to respect these decisions and not criticsise her or wonder what the hell she's playing at? Head. Clouds. Remove.

I'm actually surprised we haven't had more threads about all this. Just imaging if it'd had been Venus or Serena. :lol::o:lol::o:lol: Me thinks some of the KFC Tards would be singing a completely different tune. *cough*Cello*cough*

2. Playing Warsaw and skipping RG is actually a very smart decision. Clay is harsh on her body - why risk getting chronic back pain/broken arms/broken legs/fractured kneecaps ahead of your wedding Wimbledon! By playing Warsaw, she can get some much needed clay court practice in before Eastbourne.

There are probably a bunch of tournaments that Kim has close connections to (the people who own them, fans, etc) that she will play over a grand slam. I don't think she cares about rankings or winning that much, she just wants to pay her duties to the tournaments that have looked after her maybe. RG would probably be too much on her body, which is already going into retiring mode.
