Maybe we'll get a Caro-Kim match.
They won everything above Tier 2 for the last 8 months, but only played once since the 2009 USO final, in the 2010 YEC final

If i were a caro fan, i'd tweet kim and tell her that some radiation reached the shores of miami.

Domination.

I guess Kim's shoulder is feeling well, but it hardly got a workout.

It's amazing what a couple of days in a radiation-free zone can do for a sore shoulder. ;)

lolz at the radiation cracks... it's just Yakimova, guys. 1 and 1 against her doesn't mean Kim's shoulder is 100 percent

Mere formality. You have to wonder what goes through the mind of someone like Yakimova before they face Kim... Why bother?

Kim's serve stats don't look too good. I wonder if her shoulder hampers her serve or if it was just a 'normal' wonky serve day?

Lol. Her shoulder though is bothering her since the AO ;). And perhaps she feels vulnerable to radiation since her father died of (skin) cancer, I can imagine. Japanese radiation has reached European shore already btw. :scared: In a very low dose probably, but still.
I wonder how many matches she can play without significant hinderer (:confused:) from her shoulder, I don't think this one match is any indication, like we've witnessed at Indian Wells.

In fairness Yakimova came into this match red hot, with 8 wins in a row, and 7 of the 8 wins were against top 100 standard players. On top of that she had dropped only one set in those eight matches. So this is someone who was playing very good tennis. That Kim beat her 1 and 1 is, I would say, is quite impressive.

Really? Thank you for warning me. I will be sure not to leave my flat now until I get the all-clear that it is safe to go outside again.

Saint Sin trying to win in a hurry to avoid the tyrannical wave of radiation that is hurtling towards Miami as we speak.

This woman is such a misguided conspiracy theorist. I think her and Ann Coulter should start a club.

Those wins were in a challenger and in qualifying. There is a.vast difference in class between the players Yakimova beat and Kim

Yakimova played pretty bad - you can't expect to win a match against someone like Clijsters when you make so many unforced errors.

Of course there is. But a quick look at the players Yakimova beat during that streak, Kudryavtseva, Bondarenko, Rybarikova, Kerber, Rus, Flipkens, and Rodionova and the manner in which she beat virtually all of them very easily indicates to me she was playing to a top 50, and perhaps even a top 40 standard. And when you beat a player playing top 50 standard tennis 1 and 1 you are doing a very good job. I think we can expect Kim to have a very good week in Miami. The shoulder does not appear like it is going to be a problem this week.

Kim her father had (skin)cancer. But years later (2009) he died of (lung)cancer. Her mother almost died and had an livertransplantation. So everething did'nt go well is'nt it?

It is indeed. God I'm so happy that Kim only lost 2 games. It means that she's very healthy right now after a scare at IW. And Jada gets to go to the beach every day, there's always a little breeze blowing from east to west. Fantastic news altogether compared to the nightmare at IW, I'm so happy.

kim could beat yakimova serving underarm and with a 0-15 handicap and it would still be 1 and 1. yakimova does nothing better than kim even if kim is not serving well. we will find out how the shoulder is when she plays someone who can return.

Yakimova has nothing to hurt Kim with, whether she's been playing top 50 tennis or or not. Not possible to gauge much about her shoulder until she plays someone who could at least challenge her if she is off.
