No thread? Congrats Kim :)

:spit: @ Barbora yelling "I'm so stupid this is not normal" or something along those lines in the second set.

Saw the livestream of the match. Ok Kim had this much trouble with this girl ranked wayyyyyyyy outside the top 10. come on now. ranked what 68,69 ok Kim should have put her away pronto. first set was good. second set was a sloppy mess. Kim is not winning any AO with this sorry. clean it up Kimmie.

I'm not surprised Kim went walkabout in the second. There was such a huge difference in the level of play between the both of them, but luckily Kim woke up when she needed to.

Barbora would be at least 10 spots higher in the rankings if she could sort herself out mentally. What a mess. :o

Yes, I said she is "looking good" early in this season. She seems very fresh and very fit, even trimmer than last season. As for her tennis level, it waned in the second as she can tend to do, but she still has more than enough game to shrug those "walkabouts" off.

Kim played a great first set but the second set was pretty horrible with a lot of errors. I guess that can be put down to early season rust.

Only saw the MP and it was a nice winner :lol: Also caught the stats showed on the stadium and Kim had a 22/23 ratio which is not that bad. On to the quarters, please play better though :kiss:

Kim started off very purposeful. She was hitting very clean and coming forward.

The acceleration and racquethead speed of her serve has returned. Zahlavova was playing way too much to Kim's FH which wasn't missing at all for a set and a half. She only found success when she started playing to Kim's BH that sprayed more than usual.

It seems like Kim is still not consistent...
In my opinion she will have one off day and will face opponent like Petrova and won't win AO again.
