Kim Clijsters had just payed in the finals of the Aussie Open and won two consecutive Tier titles, when she was struck down with a wrist injury. :sad:

This week, the current #2 player on the tour will attempt to give her wrist its first serious test since the recovery at the German Open and if she and another red hot American play well, she could get a real test in the semis. :eek: :)

This event will be an initital measuring stick as to how the Belgian has recovered and give an initial starting point for her road to Roland Garros.

Its also an opportunity for Venus to start asking top players questions.

Hope both of them reach the semis. It would be a cracker!

Their h2h is 5-2 for Venus.

They only played each other once on clay - Hamburg 2002 - and that was 1 of the 2 times Kim could win, but it went to 3 sets: 1-6 6-3 6-4. (The second win of Kim was of course the YEC 2002, when Venus was forced to retire...).

Kim is my gall and I like Venus heaps - so yes, I hope both will do well, would be a good test indeed. :)

I didn't know Kim irritates you so much. :eek: Oh, God, I can't help but be pedantic today. ;)

As for Kim vs Venus, I will worry about that when they reach the semi-final.

With top players slowly coming back on the tour we will once again see good matchups by theses players as well as the wanna-be-the-top-player Russians as well. :)

A well trained Jelena can bring about a very interesting 3rd round match. :)

Kim is on an 11 match win streak dating back to the Paris Indoors.

It isn't even known if Kim is playing here. There are really mixed reports some say her injury is healed and will play others say she is in pain and hasn't decided:confused: those reports come from the news. So don't get your hopes up for a Venus-Kim semi, although i'd love to see it. There isn't anything about Kim's injury on her site, just that her opponent is Marrero in round 2. Kim had a checkup on the weekend with her doctor in Brussels, but there hasn't been an article or anything on her site about it.

Conversely, I have not heard that Kim had withdrawn from the Berlin event, as of this time at least.

The sheer GALL of this Ethiopian guy (gal?) !!

:haha:

Hehe, I really thought "gal" as in "girl" was written that way :o :o :o.

Well, I learned something, thanks :bounce:. I'm always happy when somebody corrects my mistakes :).


Yes, it's too early to worry about Kim vs Venus - but hey, guys and gals can dream, no? :D

So she is all better now right? Kim wouldn't be playing if her injury was serious.

She is still wearing a brace and will wear one at the FO.

It is beginning to look like the GO will be a major measuring stick as to how far Kim has rehabed.
