*sorry: purpose, that is*


Filip DEWULF (former ATP player) is back with his blog "the graveyard".
http://sport.be.msn.com/nl/tennis/article.html?Article_ID=486861
He's in Sydney at the moment, and talked to Kim CLIJSTERS. This is what he writes.
It's a bit of an enigma to me what he means, but still... :confused:

Nu, we moesten natuurlijk in Sydney zijn omdat het Sydney Art festival ging beginnen. We bedoelen de Medibank International met Kim Clijsters als trekpleister. We hebben de Breese ondertussen ook gesproken en het was de moeite waard. We hadden haar misschien beter al meteen onze timing voor deze week meegegeven - we reizen op vrijdag, de dag van de finale hier, door naar Melbourne - maar we hebben zo een klein vermoeden dat die dag iedereen niet zo slecht zou uitkomen. Een goed verstaander heeft maar een half woord nodig.

"Of course we had to be in Sydney because the Sydney Art festival was about to start. Of course we mean the MI with Kim Clijsters as the eyecatcher. We talked to "the one born in Bree" and it was worth it. Maybe we should have given her our timing for the rest of the week? We'll travel to Melbourne on friday, the day of the Sydney final. But we have a slight assumption that this day of departure would be most convenient for everyone. "A good listener only needs half a word" (meaning "Someone that listens carefully, won't have to ask for it twice", Wikipedia)"

I wonder what he means.
- Either he's implying that he thinks Kim will loose on purpouse in the SF and leave for Melbourne on Friday, or that he feels she should.
- Either he knows

:shrug:How did you conclude that when he said 'we' and 'iedereen' in Dutch he meant Clijsters included?

No no, that's not what I'm basing my conclusion on. That's clearly not what he's saying (I guess he's using "pluralis majestatis")

It's what he write afterwards: That leaving on friday would be the best thing for everyone, and then " a good listener ...".
So he's implying that he thinks Kim will (should) loose before friday (i.e. SF)

To tell you the truth he ain't much of a writer either.

I'm sorry am I not making myself clear?
I just told you the "we" in not what I'm basing my conclusion on.
I know Dutch, I'm familiar with "pluralis majestatis".
Please read my post.

Read the article.
Shouldn't draw conclusions too fast on FDW's little mysterious ending.

I don't see a contradiction between playing the Sydney final, and leaving on the day of it.

Why is everyone so obsessed with Clijsters tanking. She has been predicted to tank since she won her first match. For what?

She needs the match practice, and she hasn't been tested or really exerted herself on court against very weak competition.

She would have tanked if she had to play three tough matches in a row. Now she really shouldn't with the way things turned out.

We'll find out in a short while...
Maybe Kim will be adamant to prove him wrong ;)

Look at who she has played. Did any of them have any chance of worrying her? :lol:

The Final is on Friday. Can't she play it and then go to Melbourne? :shrug:

I know he isn't Justine's best friend, but his blogs are always worth the read (entertaining and interesting). He's better than any other Flemish sportsjournalist to be honest.

hmm, this worries me a bit.
he's usually right about this (like predicting kim would be 'injured' for beijing, though that was an easy one)

i hope she just plays decent and wins the semis and final. i mean, what s one more match ... ?

If he's trying to be discreet, ummm, failure.

To answer the question, maybe. It depends on how someone can "loose" a tennis match.

That article isn't even recent. It was written on January 8th. The draw looked much heavier at that time than it does now. There's also the rise of the opportunity of getting to #2 if she wins the final. Besides, I can't see her losing to Kleybanova two times in a row.

ah it makes sense now. I am glad to see that my reasoning was spot on :lol:

This.

I think he is implying that Kim WILL be in the final and that they can leave right after.

On a sidenote, I think Kim is the most confident player in the world at the moment. I think she feels like she shouldn't be losing to anyone.

Ahh got to love the ultra-bitter Williams sisters fans and their lame cracks at St. Kim only because Devilrena hasn't a hope being on the court at all let alone beating Kim in the near future :haha: :nerner:
