Will they make it past the first round? Doubtful.

It's not my fault! It's just true!

Feb 14th, 2004, 10:12 PM
Well i hope they do well, I think its cool they will play together.

Feb 14th, 2004, 10:13 PM
Kim's gonna make little sis some cash this week!

Kimmie should be able to carry Elke through the match unless the opponenths throw everything elke's way :devil:

Feb 14th, 2004, 11:24 PM
dont think they're gonna be seeded, but i see them getting through a couple of rounds:)

Feb 14th, 2004, 11:31 PM
Elke is pretty good at doubles.

Feb 14th, 2004, 11:32 PM
How old is Elke?

Feb 15th, 2004, 12:46 AM
Thats probably what Elke needs to get some confidence. Remember when Serena partnered with Alex at the end of 2002, Alex actually made some decent run which allowed her to end the year in the top 20.

Will they make it past the first round? Doubtful.

Kim is the number 4 doubles player in the world, has won two slams, been to snother slam final (wimbledon 2001), been a finalist in the mixed at wimbledon and in total won 11 doubles titles. That is pretty damn good. A lot depends on the draw if they get a seeded opponent it will be tough otherwise they have a good chance because for your information Elke DID pass the first round here last year and I have already spelled out Kim's doubles abilities.

Hope they get a good draw.

that's so sweet :awww:

Feb 15th, 2004, 05:39 AM
elke sucks in singles but she's pretty decent in dubs. she actually won a dubs match with kirsten flipkens here last year.


Feb 15th, 2004, 07:42 AM
thats good!!

Feb 15th, 2004, 07:45 AM
I doubt can win a match...

Feb 15th, 2004, 07:46 AM
good news!! good luck Clijsters sisters :bounce: :bounce:

Feb 15th, 2004, 07:53 AM
I doubt can win a match...

Kim was #1, Elke is #266.I'm sure that Kim and Elke can to play a very good!

Feb 15th, 2004, 07:53 AM
Fantastic news! :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

What's with everyone saying they won't win a match? If this year's doubles field is anything like last year, they will win at least a few rounds. :)

Udach Team Clijsters! :yeah:

:rolleyes: Such a bitter hater :o

Elke is sort of a good double player (much better that single) and with Kim's assistance I think that they can make it at least ONE round..

Feb 15th, 2004, 09:43 AM
good luck, this would be good for elke('s confidence)

Feb 15th, 2004, 09:52 AM
Elke and Kim kick ass my sweeties :D

Feb 15th, 2004, 12:23 PM
:rolleyes: Such a bitter hater :o


Feb 15th, 2004, 02:17 PM
Is Elke really that bad? Or is that in reference to Kim's gigantic career results?

Feb 15th, 2004, 02:37 PM
Are Kim and Elke sisters?

Feb 15th, 2004, 03:03 PM
Elke at one point was the #1 doubles player in the world in Juniors..so she's got some doubles skills ;) and as was mentioned she's got Kim to help her out a bit :p

I have no idea how they will perform though..maybe they don't match up well together :o

Feb 15th, 2004, 03:48 PM
Are Kim and Elke sisters?
no they were childhood friends.. and real close.. so they changed their surnames to be Clijsters.. so yes they are sisters.

Feb 15th, 2004, 03:55 PM
Elke is a pretty good doubles-player,and unless they get a really bad draw is see them pass a couple of rounds :)

Feb 16th, 2004, 06:34 AM
They got drawn a nice first match of Vis and Sfar but then it would probably be the number 2 seeds Mandula/Loit

Feb 16th, 2004, 06:43 AM
Elke was a very good doubles player in juniors so im pretty sure that they will get through some rounds especially since they also have kim. this will be a good experience for elke hopefully, i hope kim teaches her some things (attitude, mentality etc) or rather elke learns from what kim does and betters her own game with the knowledge her sis will showcase.

but elke is a good doubles player so im pretty sure will do her part in the money they earn.

Feb 16th, 2004, 06:47 AM
Elke was actually the ITF Junior Doubles Champion for 2002
