:eek: Damn, i'm sure it hurts big time, Kim tried to chase the ball from Maria, but it was too good and Kim tried to split like always, but this one ended up she had to do full split. :eek:


The funny thing is on the interview Kim said that it didn't hurt at all WOW!!!

nah, when youve been doing straddles forever, your muscles become used to it.

plus her muscles are already really warm..I would be more nervous to see her doing something like that early in a match when her muscles might not be as warm.

Aranxta used to do a similiar move, but not such a deep split as Kim, and she did end up turning her ankle, but recovered from it fairly quickly. Kim's splits look athletic to me, but still dangerous. Your muscles can definitely get used to it, but that can also make you less cautious/more casual and that's when accidents can happen....

yeah you can turn your ankle out from just plain running around on the court too. i dont really think shes at more of a risk than any other player running back and forth.

Yeah that was incredible! That split is in the commercial of the "Get In Touch With Your Feminine Side" action.

Whats amazing is not how easily she goes into the splits....its the fact that she gets back up so easily.......everytime she does it I cringe.

The "Banana" and the "Potato". Love it. :)

Wayne Ferreira tried to do the splits and ended up injuring his groin.

Without fail, the crowds always gasps whenever Kim does the splits in matches. It's a shocking sight to behold. It personally makes me cringe, just knowing how serious an injury it could cause (re: Wayne Ferreira) if done wrongly. All it takes is one foul move.
