Here's my quick translation of an interview in the Belgian press today (source: De Standaard, June 19):
Kim on the 48 minutes match against Andrea Glass: ‘It took more than long enough. I never played in such a heat in Belgium or the Netherlands. But it went easy. Also without a coach’, she joked.
‘For the time being I can do without one. I am already some years in the tour and know how to train. I have booked a number of sparring partners for the coming weeks and have been scouting Glass and de los Rios yesterday. That is my task now. If I really need advise, I can always count on Jason. We aren’t really looking for a new coach. Far more important is a physiotherapist who can travel with me to take care of my arm and shoulder.’
Kim feels herself physically much better than at Roland Garros. ‘My serve was excellent today. And that even with the soft surface. I have practised on a harder surface at Queen’s, so I had to get used to it. But I feel good and am positive about Wimbledon. What’s my opinion about my opponents? Well, I don’t know, because I don’t know the draw and don’t want to know it. I am occupied with the Rosmalen tournament.’
and a quote about having Jason as a coach:
'Only when he has time.' (source: De Telegraaf, June 19)

It must be strange scouting your next opponent!
But good to hear she can do it all be herself :) :) :)

and a reaction from Kim at Rosmalen on questions about the claims in the press of an upcoming marriage:
While Lleyton reacted quite irritated, Kim more laughed at it.
Source: Dutch press (De Gelderlander), June 19
"Clijsters reacted more in a nice way: 'Ah, they bring things that aren't true. Meanwhile we are already engaged and married twice.
But it's always with the same one. I can't do anything about it, but I do think it's funny.' "

Awww...Kimmy is such an :angel:
Jun 20th, 2002, 02:22 PM
She's got it all.......:)
Wonder if she'll be wearing another outfit @ Wimbledon than the one she's wearing @ Rosmalen...
I don't know, but this one seemed kind of ... ordinary, not that special....
Well yeah, doesn't matter...
Jun 20th, 2002, 02:42 PM
I just see that Rosmalen is making some schedule adjustments: they are putting Kim now on court one, at the same time as Lleyton
Jun 20th, 2002, 03:47 PM
Kim lost the first set 7-6 and is a break behind in the second :( :( :(
Jun 20th, 2002, 04:07 PM
How do you know about the match, I can't find anything on tv, neither on the net. Rosmalen site shows no scores at all...:sad:
C'MON KIM, hang in there...
Jun 20th, 2002, 04:17 PM
The live scores are on the green bar on their website!
Jun 20th, 2002, 04:18 PM
I stopped watching when it was 6-7 1-2 and 20 minutes later the match seemed to be over but I can't find the score... :confused:
Jun 20th, 2002, 04:24 PM
7-6 6-2 :( :( :(
Jun 20th, 2002, 04:25 PM
and not everybody has the green bar strangely enough!
Jun 20th, 2002, 04:56 PM
Arn, I think it is because you have to download a program in order to see the scores.
Too bad that Kim lost in this way... :sad: :sad: :sad:
Jun 20th, 2002, 05:04 PM
I never downloaded a thing and i can see the scores!
Jun 20th, 2002, 05:06 PM
After downloading that flash'thing', I had the greenbar too...
But Kim lost..............:sad: :sad: :sad:
I don't know how many on this board have seen the interview with Kim on Ned2, after her loss today, but I am wondering what those who have seen it made of it.
I had a lot of mixed feelings when I was watching the interview. To me, Kim looked not okay. Her face was sort of swollen, at least looked like it, looking at her eyes she gave me a tired impression, and she had some rashes in her face I think, and under her left eye there seemed to be a huge spot.
Overall, didn't see much motivation or cheerfulness, not like she usually talks or looks like.
Then to her explanation of what happened today, she mentioned especially her health problem; that when the doctors discovered what was wrong after the Australian Open this year, she was left with the choice between three options:
1) was that she should have surgery
2) was that she should take 6 months out
3) was the reduced training and playing scheme
She said she opted for the third choice and that this also meant that it would be a tough year for her.
So far the main part of that interview.
Now, whatever is hampering her, mentally and/or physically, I hope she overcomes it and does everything what is needed to take care of herself, like she deserves.
Jun 20th, 2002, 10:20 PM
And here is more from Kim today (source: Belgian TV channel VTM):
'I knew on forehand that it would be a hard season. Its difficult to find the right balance. Especially now that I have to limit training and playing tournaments. I just do need match rhythm.
Last year I only needed a few games against Pisnik to adapt at her game; now I needed a whole match.
I rather would have broken my leg, then I would be done with it in a few weeks time. I am afraid that I'll have to learn to live with this injury.
It will be tough to defend my points, but I hope that I can stay in the top ten this year.'
Jun 20th, 2002, 11:11 PM
top-10 is possible I think. But Martina/Lindsay/Justine/Jelena and Daniela will probably pass her all :( So that leaved her at 10.
She better had choses for the surgery!!
Jun 20th, 2002, 11:46 PM
But that kind of surgery doesn't assure a good result....Rafter had the same problem and he did have surgery.
It didn't make the injury better and he never played the same again.
So, surgery good be good, but also bad...
I don't know what Kim should do, first of all get a private fysiotherapist I think...
Hope she finds here balance @ Wimbledon:confused:
Jun 21st, 2002, 02:30 AM
I'm pretty disappointed with the lame result.
Better now than at Wimbledon of course but she better drop that priggish attitude ( "...I can scout for myself, I have enough experience and blah, blah ) because, clearly, that won't wash imho.
SHE NEEDS A DECENT, FULL TIME DEDICATED COACH right now or, mark my words, she will be out again in first or second round at Wimbledon.
BTW, KaseyL, I saw that interview on NED2 as well and I agree, she didn't look good at all. The 'Story' gossip-monger in me thinks she could have been quarreled with Lleyton because the number 1 himself looked not that well today. On the other hand she could just been suffering from simple hay fever... Who knows!
Jun 22nd, 2002, 05:13 PM
Well, Lleyton had to pull out of Rosmalen because of some stomach problems. If he's sick, it stands to reason that Kim is sick, too.
