i predicted this before she even struck a ball on the grass. i just think she really wants a wimbledon title and skipping RG was part of that. i think there is no better prepared player at the moment than kim.

not on purpose but i think she thought lets put all the eggs in one basket. i think she both knew playing RG could have hurt her wimbledon chances and not given her so much time to prepare for the grass. i have no doubt the week before she chose not to play RG she was onto grass or fast hard practicing the moment she could. she is the only player going into wimbledon that has had 3 or 4 weeks of grass practice. im not surprised she going through players like a knife through butter.

Well, in Wimbledon 2003 semifinal Venus had quite some troubles with young Kim Clijsters (4:6, 6:3, 6:1).

Since Kim 2010 is arguably a much better and complete player than Kim 2003 while exactly the opposite is true in the case of Venus 2003 vs. Venus 2009-2010, Kim may well win this time.:cool:

I believe Vee had the abdominal strain which she reinjured during the 2003 match and Kim failed to capitalize on it. The third set was not even close.

If both Venus and Serena play up to their abilities, I don't think Kim can win on this surface (the WS have too much of an advantage on this surface hence dominance over it).

i think kim is a horrible player for venus to play now whatever surface it is. kim is like a better jankovic in that she can out run venus in long rallies to get the error, but she also has a forehand that she looks to take on whenever she can. she also can throw in slices, drops shots and lobs which keep venus off balance.

Well in Wimbledon 2003 Venus was quite obviously hurt. That injury changed her whole career. So really it's 1997-2003 Venus comparable to 2004-current Venus. Even in the 2004-current time frame, Venus won three slams, greater than Clijsters' whole career.

The only difference in Clijsters is her mental toughness. She's mentally tougher yet STILL when the pressure is on her on the big stage she wilts. See Australian Open 2010.

There may be some pressure on her if she continues to beatdown her opponents and ends up winning EastBourne, and I'll be interested to see how she handles it at Wimbledon.

If she faces Serena, no way would she beat Serena 10-8 in the third. Maybe something like that would happen on clay but not on grass.

She is and that's why Venus needs to play at a top level against Clijsters, in that she needs her ground-strokes in tip top shape.

Clijsters I feel is extremely consistent with her game whereas with Venus, it's literally hit and miss. What I saw at the US Open and in Miami was that Kims groundstrokes were generally far superior because Venus would just throw in these crappy shots and Clijsters (deservingly) would eat them up.

On grass, I don't know how it would translate because, again, Venus is inconsistent.

Miss Atomic Bomb
Jun 16th, 2010, 10:54 PM
It is quite possible, especially if Serena has an off day like last year's Wimbledon SF, Clijsters will certainly capitalize.

Although I must say, Kim's game doesnt suit grass at all. Her serve isnt as much of a weapon as it is on hardcourts, her topspin shots dont do as much damage either, and if a good volleyer can take the net away from her she will be in trouble (On grass the ball stays low and doesnt allow you enough time to setup a passing shot).

Yes, Kim is a bad match-up for Venus but grass should be the best surface for Venus since she could be succesful on that surface to keep the rallies as short as possible.

grass will obviously help venus's serve and one strike tennis, but i feel like venus needs to play very well if she wants to beat kim again. she doesn't get nearly as many cheap points on serve as she does against any other top player as kim returns so consistently.

id love for them to meet in the qtrs or semis, would be a great match i think with some great rallies.

LudwigDvorak
Jun 16th, 2010, 10:58 PM
It will be interesting to see how Clijsters performs at Wimbledon this year.

Before she was held back because of her impotent serving and being too reliant on defense. I am still skeptical because 99/100 times when Clijsters plays aggressive, complete 1st strike tennis against contenders it always ends up exposing her FH technique into a flurry of errors. The 1/100 being the humiliating clinics she gave to Mauresmo.

Thanks for highlighting four out of the five times Venus has lost this year.

Are you saying Venus has to have a bad day for Clijsters to beat her on grass? Not exactly confidence building.

And no, Venus having a bad day at Wimbledon isn't exactly "high". God knows how you can say that?

This year alone so far has been one of Venus' better years in terms of consistency. Thus she's had worse results in previous years and still ended up winning Wimbledon.

As a result prior results REALLY mean nothing on Venus' Wimbledon performance. So you can't say her having a bad day at Wimbledon is high. There is a chance. But that's all. A chance. Just like Clijsters has the chance of having a bad day too (like against Petrova, Kleybanova)

Of course everytime a player loses it's a bad day at the office especially if it's a 1-6 2-6 or 0-6 1-6 scoreline. Stating the obvious there.

Clijsters is a better grass-courter than Seles ever was and the surface used to be much quicker in those times. Compared to that, Clijsters beating Venus on grass wouldnīt be that much surprising.

Well Clijsters may not necessarily meet Serena in the Quarter-Finals. The Seeds don't always have 1 vs. 8.

In 2007, Serena Was the 7th Seed and she faced Number 1 Henin in the QF.

In 2008, yes the Number 1 and Number 8 were in the same quarter.

In 2009, Number 1 was slated to face the 5th seed in the QF's.

So its not always a given, it can be all over the place at times. :lol:

How do you know bar the WS and a few others that they won't do the same at Wimbledon? I hope not but she could get really lucky.:)

LMAO @Sammy. You are so biased :lol:
I don't see why Kim is the favourite against Henin... it's not like she crushed her this year, hello on her favourite surface, not even in a Slam, she barely won after a choke against Witchtine , and still she was lucky Witchtine hit a DF at 6-6 in Brisbane in the tie-breaker, then that lucky volley shot at Miami :hearts:

And Henin won a MM title, whereas Kim lost to Azarenka. Confidence built, it's perhaps a bit better.
We are in a Slam. Justine has 7 Slams, Kim "only" 2 .
That stat is more telling that the 5-0 stat because according to that stat, Kim is above the WS and Henin, but lost 6-1 6-0 to Petrova. Not so good. :/ To finish, Herpes was on a 45 + sets winning streak at RG, and she lost to Stosur.

We'll have to see. If she wins a Slam here in 2010...I would say no. If she doesn't, she's got another farewell tour coming up in 1-2 years...and I love Kim. What she said is that she recognizes that she doesn't have long left in general because a) kids and b) age.

I know Clijsters has mentioned she wants to play the Olympics in 2012, so she may just wait till the end of 2012 to have another baby, which would make Jada what... 4-5 years older than her sibling, which is fine.

Hopefully she waits till atleast US Open 2012.

Wth.. She's only 27. If Venus and Serena thought like that they would've been gone quite some time ago :tape: Does she not enjoy tennis that much?

doesn't hurt that she'd been on holiday while everyone else was grinding their way on the tour.

TRUTH BELOW, September 17 2009:

I think what a lot of people are forgetting is that after being away from the game you tend to forget how to play her. Wait until next year after players have a chance to play her more often it will not be so easy for her. Look at Hingis when she first came back on tour.

I know. Everyone is going on about her like she's the jesus of tennis. Just wait till she gets into the daily wta grind of things and the sh... rubs off on her and she starts losing to people called Makarova, the glow will fade.
