Some possibilities:

There was a bug on it.

It's a technique she learned at the Marat Safin School of Tranquility.

She needed a break any way she could get it.

It just fell out of her hand.

The light played tricks on the strings and showed the face of JHH.

She told me she swore the strings were humming to her over and over, saying "You shouldn't have paid so much for that dumb f*ckin pup"

She probably was just frustrated, even the nicest people get annoyed once in a while.

:lol:

Really, she was frustrated. She had 4-2 but she dropped serve in the 8th game for Hingis to come back to 4-4 & Kim smashed it then. It was the 2nd time she had been up a break only for Hingis to rebreak. It seemed to work wonders though from *4-5 in the 1st set she only lost 2 more games:p

I've had some injury problems and I don't feel that my game's quite there," Clijsters said.

"But it's great to get to another semi-final.

"It was tough tonight.

"I was struggling in the first set and the frustration boiled over."

She usually has a bad face on court, so I guess she's not that "nice" as many say... :tape:

Well, it seems to work so for me she can do it a couple of times next time she plays JHH.

I think her father said that she's always a temperamental player, she has smashed her racket when she's still a small kid..

Kim and recquet smashing don't seem to go together for me it sounds odd but at the same time funny. Also what's the big deal anyway.

Indeed it doesn't happen very often..it's probably a good thing though cause it means her focus is there.

The last time I remember her doing it was in Aus a few years back..

Yeah, well Kim had never seen her fiance' making out with Henin-Hardenne in the stands before either.

Yea I was shocked as many in here. But a nice girl has to piss off sometimes. I wouldn't surprise if she smacks a few more down the road for the rest of this US road trip because the weather is too damn hot, and the frustration from her game.

But if she keeps winning.....and she's not the only girl who's smashing with her racket.....so, I don't understand why people make such a deal about it.
