This is danger time for Kim "Our Kimmie" Clijsters. Caroline "Miss Moonball" Wozniacki really dismantled Melanie "Miss Upset" Oudin with her moonball style. I would liken this match to Sanchez Vicario upsetting Graf in 94. Moonballed to oblivion. Wozniacki would be smart to moonball up the middle of the court, daring Kim to hit out on her forehand, where she will make a bunch of errors. Serena never realized this during tonight's match.

Kim, on the otherhand, must be wise to this. She has to realize she is fit enough to hang with the moonball type rallies, and wait for a really good opportunity to go for it, not get impatient. Even if Wozniacki gets the first chance to strike, Kim's defense is way better than Wozniacki's. She has to go in comfortably in this knowledge.

Now, completely different topic, who thinks Wozniacki reminds them of Hingis? Same big forehead, court sense, and Chesire cat grin? Except, Wozniacki is nowhere near as arrogant and conceited as Hingis at that age.

Very nice analysis.

I'm no where near as confident as most people are. Kim played a very good match, but there are still some obvious deficiencies. Her biggest today was her forehand when being aggressive. And if she has to beat Wozniacki she has to play many of them in succession.

How could you top today's incident? By Wozniacki winning the US.

Caro is the type of player Kim would rout in straight sets back in the day. You couldn't push against Kim, any more than you could push against Hingis. They were the masters of handling their own game against the pusher style, which explained why lower-ranked journeywomen never troubled them.

The only problem is how Kim holds up mentally. She's done an excellent job this fortnight, especially tonight... but I sense that the emotional dam is very close to breaking (with the dream run, with her returning to the final to "defend" her title). Kim looked somewhat traumatised by the way today's semi ended. If Caro can keep it close early in the match, then there's a chance that Kim might cave in a flurry of errors.

On Caro's part, she must look to attack Kim's backhand with high loopy shots. I've only seen Dinara do exploit that weakness this summer, and although Kim has come a long way from her level in Cincy, it remains to see how she will handle her high backhands. On the bright side, it's not like Caro is going to do much with the ball if Kim were to yield a short backhand...

Wozniacki wins about 2/3 of her points off of unforced errors from her opponents. Look it up. Kim historically has rarely lost due to her errors. Usually, when she loses, it is because her opponent successfully outhits her, which you can do if you are Sharapova, Venus, Serena, Justine etc. To win the match, Caroline is going to need about 15-20 unforced errors per set from Kim, or about double what Kim has been producing this open. Maybe if Kim is really nervous and comes out flat...but I'd say Kim is a pretty big favorite. Stranger things have happened, but my money is on Kim.

Funnily enough, Kim's only top 10 losses come from the Slamless #1s. She was given a straight set by Dinara and taken to three with Jankovic, and many people consider Jelena a pusher with a backhand. :scratch: The match could go either way, but if Kim wins, her record against the top 10 since coming back after 2 years will rise to 5-2 :drool: A record I'm sure many would kill for.

Well she has great court-sense, anticipation, and footwork. Other than that, Martina had a lot more talent at net and hit more winners. I see a bit of similarity.

I love Caro and think she had a great tournament but I do not think she is going to beat Kim tomorrow. Clijsters in 3.

It really depends on who handles the occasion better. Kim was phenomenal yesterday but has shown glimpses of vulnerability throughout the tournament. I wouldn't rule out Caro's chances though if Kim's nerves are steady, I feel she'll take the title. Hopefully it'll be a tight and high quality match.

Come on Kim! You can do it!

I tend to disagree, Kim and Caro do not have the same game at all. for sure not the same forehand and not the same serve. Kim is far more agressive than Caro. However Kim's agressiveness is not about trying winners but going for the shot that will draw the error. I hope both play well and really hope Kim will win even if she is the underdog.

Reaching a slam final at age 19 would have been a big, big deal for anyone. Wozniacki came to US Open being touted as the new it girl and she delivered. This would have been the story of the tournament. Instead,

(1) She was overshadowed by Oudin for the whole first week, even unable to celebrate when she beat Oudin soundly 6-2 6-2

(2) USTA's screwed-up schedule forced her to play SF at a second court in front of only 300 people. There has never been fewer people to witness a new star's ascent to a slam final.

(3) Her SF victory was completely overshadowed by the controversy of Serena-Clijsters match, which ended only 30 minutes earlier.

(4) People will likely feel sorry for Clijsters and cheer for her in the final.

I will cheer for Caro instead. She deserves it.

I agree that it's very unfair that these girls weren't allowed to play their match on the main court. I find it disgusting in fact. This is the highlight of these girls' careers (especially for Wickmayer who will probably never make a GS semi again) and they were made to play in front of a few hundred people as though they were playing first round of the junior event. No excuse for that - rain or no rain!

After draw and several first weeks upsets we all know that upcoming Serena/Kim showdown will be peak of this tournament whatever happen in that match :shrug:

If Kim's wins of course that her run to title will be more remembered for her comeback after long pause because it will be just 2nd WC/GS-Winner case in tennis history (with Ivanisevic), than for beating both Williams sisters... and just than for her final match.

But if Wozniacki wins today's SHE will be hero of the day (whole Season?)...

But if Wozniacki wins today's SHE will be hero of the day (whole Season?)...

Will she?! I don't think she'll be worshipped by the majority of this place.

What do you think: Isn't it weired that WC-Kim is the heavy favorit for the final.
Does anybody believe Wozniacki does have a chance to get more than 6 games?


23:59 Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) 4.52
Kim Clijsters (BEL) 1.29

It is a shame for Caroline, but it could work to her advantage as there is no pressure on her.

The other girl I see you're still pissed over Sveta match :spit:

I feel sorry for Sveta

She made in her match vs Caro more winners than the danish in 6 matches

Sveta :hug:
Yeah and more UEs than Caro has made in like her whole career. :p

At least she will have a final but Wickmayer lost a grand slam semi that nobody really noticed. :-(
A singles semi final should be played on the main court. If that means that they can only finish the tournament on Tuesday, so be it. I don't buy the rain excuse. Every other slam plays the women's semis on Thursday, so they create the scheduling problem themselves by always wanting to push everything to the weekend. If you do that the players shouldn't be punished when things go wrong. Wozniacki and Wickmayer had earned the right to play on the main court, in front of thousands of people and live on television for a worldwide audience - period. :(

Hmmm, not many people predicted this final :lol:

Kim to complete the fairytale comeback in two pretty comfortable sets me thingks :bounce:


Yes, an unseeded player in the final (but she's more like a seeded player since she's a comeback and a veteran too). :) Who could have thought that Caroline is going to win this year's US Open? :bounce:;)

I will support Kim, but there's so much hate for Caroline on these boards that I'm almost tempted to root for her, and if she was playing a different opponent I probably would.

I really hope Kim completes this amazing return to Grand Slam tennis and triumphs to win her 2nd US Open. Beating both Serena and Venus en route to becoming the first mum to win a major since 1980 would be phenomenal :worship:

My heart says Kim, my mind says Kim, but considering what a bloody mess this year's Open have been, a Caro win is definitely possible:o

Kim is the ultimate nightmare for someone like Wozniacki.

She can more than match her mobility, can pull her off court with heavytospin and witdh, and she can fundamentally hit through Wozniacki. This will only be competitive if Wozniacki dares to be aggressive, but the chances of this are near-impossible.

Who knows though? It's not like Kim hasn't imploded in Slam finals before. 3 to be exact.

Yes, but not at will/with a couple of shots. She'll have to work the points. Hitting through pushers from the baseline is never easy, no matter how well one happens to be playing.

You have to remember how much Kim struggled against Megapusher Jankovic in the last two matches she played against her (win from MP down in one, loss in the other). The game plan that worked against Serena yesterday may not work against Pushniacki. Kim will have to come to the net.

Great chance for Kim to bulk up her resumé, unworthy of such a good player. But still I'd give a 30-40% chance for unspeakable horror to happen - unless Kim plays great, in which case she'll have nothing to worry about.

This is exctly like the US Open 2 years ago. All the top players on one side of the draw were upset early and Kuznetsova sailed into the final. The other half was packed with great match ups in the QF and SF and the finalist had truly earnt her place in the final. That year Henin walloped Kuznetsova in the final and the same thing will happen again tonight. And rightly so. Good to have Kim back:worship: Great run by Caroline nonetheless-she is a future GS champion but just not at this tournament.

Caroline is a very poor version of Jankovic. Plus Kim is excellent at the net. Kim is so much more complete a player than Caroline. The only way Kim could lose is if she chokes the match away. She'll have all the crowd behind her too.
