I don't know if it's pure choking. Kim is just very on and off these days.

She just looks bored and nonchalant out there. Like she's thinking about her babeh. Until she wins match point, where we see a nice reaction. Need to see more of that from Clijsters.

Wow, didn't realize Clijsters had such an authorative record over Ju on HCs. I know 2 wins were this year. When were the other HC wins?

Justine won the most important ones : US Open and Australian Open finals, so she is the best on relevant HC matches

This stat is so misleading

I miss the old Kim of 2003. That Kim was focused point after point. And consistent!

Actually I believe Kim is naturally better than Justine on hardcourts but Justine is much better in Slams. That's why she has won seven slams and Kim "only" two. But they have started a new career, so we will see.

That could change because Kim, if she plays like she has so far this tournament, will probably defend her title at the US Open

Just shows kim is mentally owned :o She is so much better but mental strength is a very big part of the game.

I doubt it.

She won the US Open because she was free of all pressure, she didn't expect to win there.

Again, we will see. After all she was the favourite at 2005 US Open and won it...

Yes, but those were 6 years ago. In '06, Kim didn't even put forward any sort of effort in their slam matches. I'd like to see them play in a slam this year :scared:

This stat is so misleadingThis stat turned out to be a good predictor of who would win this match. Turned out to be a good predictor of who would win the last time they played. So why is it misleading?Kim doesnt own Justine anywhere... period :lol: They could play on the moon and Justine will still have the mental edgeYeah. When it came down to t third set tie-breaker, Clijsters crumbled. Henin dominated her. Third set tie-breaks pretty much always go to the mentally stronger player, which is why Henin won.

What? Oh. No way. C'mon, Clijsters is a choke artist. Henin couldn't possibly .. oh I get it. 'April Fool'. What was the real score? 6-4 6-3 Henin?
