Depending on what your definition of 'player' is, 'part time player' could also hold true for Ivanovic. Was she even using a tennis racquet today?

Well Kim never liked playing in Asia, so perhaps not a big surprise and if the injury is legit, it is what it is.

Good for her! Why fly half way around the world for this tournament? It was obvious that she wasn't going to play or she would lose very early as her heart wasn't in it. Shame she couldn't give the real reason though.

If the European indoor season was as it was before, I am sure she would have played a couple of tournament's no problem.

Beijing will be a disaster as usual as players are literally forced to play and the WTA just don't care, as long as they get their money, why care? Really time to scrap this mandatory tournament rubbish.

Before her cut foot, Wimbledon was only Serena's 6th tournament of the year and only 3 of them were not slams. It was Kim's 7th tournamnet of the year + FED Cup (including the injury that kept her out of the majority of the clay season including French Open (regardless of that was a fake injury or not).
So Serena was an even more part time player than Kim was even before Serena cut her foot. Many people believe Kim is just faking a foot injury to avoid going to Asia for a week, but Serena could just as well just keep using her foot injury as an excuse to avoid going to all these non slam tournamnets. All we know is her foot injury isn't so bad it keeps her from walking in very high heels anymore. If she's was able to play in Asia or not if she wanted to we can't tell, just like we can't tell if Kim's injury is real or not.
So with only 3 non slam tournamnets in 2010 Serena is just as much a part time player in 2010 as Kim is.

obviously wanted to see kim play, but she obviously doesn't want to play here hence getting the surgery now. i think it is bad the WTA have ruined the indoor season and are forcing players to play when and where they don't want to.

to serena, kim ect mandatory means nothing, they don't care about a 0 pointer on their rankings, the rankings already mean nothing now with caro and possibley vera being number 1 in the next few months.

hope shes healed for YEC

her management released an official statement saying Kim can't play because she had surgery on her foot.

Some birthmarks/moles were removed on the sole of her foot, and the wound is healing badly, so playing tennis is really out of the question for the moment.

The surgery was planned long ahead, to take place after the US Open

Kim's father had skin cancer about 15 years ago (or longer), so she has to be very careful with things like this

No way in the world kimberly would fly all the way to China to play a Wta tournament... I want to ser what wta will do about this, since this tournament is "mandatory"

Unless she can prove she is really injured, the WTA will do to her as they did to the Williams for not playing IW. Kim is a wife and a mother, which is more important to her than being the #1 ranked player. She has made lots of money the past two years, so can easily afford the fine. She has the best of all worlds: Great career, wife and mother. Who could ask for anything more?

Faking injuries, so as to not to have to play in a tournament, is par for the course. What is the WTA going to do ? NADA, that's what; especially among the top 5/10 players. We all know who these players are. They size up the pros and cons (ranking points, venue, when's the next slam, etc.) and come up with an injury. Their seems to be no fair way to assign negative points to this dilemma ?

The post you quote is BS and you know it! How the hell do any flipping one of us here know if Kim has always been honest, when we don't know her personally?

It's funny how people can suddenly have understanding when it comes to certain WTA players and want to rip others, when none of us know the real facts of any of the situations, but base our judgement on pure speculations and often times biasness.

When I first joined this forum I thought Sammy was unfairly judged but over the course of time spent here I've discovered his/she is one the biggest hypocrites to roam these forums. It's funny how you guys conveniently forget that Kim pre-retirement made press releases about possibly missing slams because of one injury or another only to show up running like a dear in headlights... But since none of us knew how severe the possibly injuries were we had no choice but to believe her. Why can't others be given the same courtesy. And please spare me the on the beach so you can't be injured since swimming cannot equate to running around playing any time of sports.

People need to learn to spread their understand around and don't hold special regards for some while tearing down others.

JUST SAYIN!

The post you quote is BS and you know it! How the hell do any flipping one of us here know if Kim has always been honest, when we don't know her personally?

It's funny how people can suddenly have understanding when it comes to certain WTA players and want to rip others, when none of us know the real facts of any of the situations, but base our judgement on pure speculations and often times biasness.

When I first joined this forum I thought Sammy was unfairly judged but over the course of time spent here I've discovered his/she is one the biggest hypocrites to roam these forums. It's funny how you guys conveniently forget that Kim pre-retirement made press releases about possibly missing slams because of one injury or another only to show up running like a dear in headlights... But since none of us knew how severe the possibly injuries were we had no choice but to believe her. Why can't others be given the same courtesy. And please spare me the on the beach so you can't be injured since swimming cannot equate to running around playing any time of sports.

People need to learn to spread their understand around and don't hold special regards for some while tearing down others.

JUST SAYIN!

BS. Quite easy - check the number of times she's pulled out of tournaments late. Doesn't compare to the number of times some other players we know. Also most of those times she was seen to be injured in a previous tournament. This time she's shown her injury and her history has been one of informing her fans of her progress towards recovering and making a tournament compared to the silence and mystery injury we get time and time again from other players.

So no - you don't have to be a personal friend in her inner circle to know she's basically honest.

Oh and swimming is nothing like the same as clambering over rocks or surfing with a knee injury.

Plus she pulled out of Struttgart this year (before she got injured and missed the whole clay season) because she said she wanted to spend more time with the family. This can't be much different.

you need help :help:

the most funny thing is your actually using kim playing slams injured in the past, when she could well have missed them (oz open 2006, french open 2005), as some sort of arguement.


if you wanna go there kims been totally transparent, told exactly her injury and shown a pic. don't be bitter because serena and venus don't inform their fans, pull out last minute with no reason and make themselves look like they couldn't give a shit.

JUST SAYIN!

It's not really an injury, just a birthmark she got removed and it got infected she says. Nothing serious really.

Just because Kim has been previously dedicated to the point she's now seeing the errors of her ways does not equate to her nature of being honest. In any event my original post was to point out that none of know the true intent or nature of any player unless we know them on a personal level, therefore we can't say for sure who is being totally honest and who is not. And making rash judgment base solely on what we PERCEIVE we understand is just as unfair and not giving other the benefit of the doubt we all require at some point in our lives.

What I find extremely amusing in this thread is the sudden understanding of over playing by today's player, yet other are constantly criticized for recognising this years ago.

Since I have never played professional tennis and or clammer over rocks or surf I can't compare them with swimming or what I see in still pictures. I am happy that you can though:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

you need help :help:

Honey I may need help but thankfully I don't look to the likes of you to offer that help. ALL OF MY HELP COMETH FROM MY LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST!

the most funny thing is your actually using kim playing slams injured in the past, when she could well have missed them (oz open 2006, french open 2005), as some sort of arguement.

No, I used the examples to point out that Kim's TOTAL honesty could be questioned in such instances, since one could question her need to OVER EXAGGERATE injuries, if she was even injured. It could have been she felt she was not fully prepared and rather than accepting the pressure to perform as a favourite, an excuse was produced before hand.

if you wanna go there kims been totally transparent, told exactly her injury and shown a pic. don't be bitter because serena and venus don't inform their fans, pull out last minute with no reason and make themselves look like they couldn't give a shit.

Again you are only speculating on her totally transparency since you don't have a clue to the total truth of it all... But let's look at it another way, Kim may have felt the need to produce a picture, because players are often question as to their honestly. Some might even say that the cut is to small and it looks like Kim can play on it. Hell some might even say that should take no more than a couple of days to heal and even question if it's Kim's foot? :) Yep I went there, my point is people are never satisfied no matter what you produce, and that may be why some don't even bother

As for being bitter about Venus and Serena, honey you hold all the bitterness, since you seem to be up in arms about them. It doesn't bother me how athletes decide to deal with the careers. Their decision to play or not only benefits me for a moment of pleasure not a lasting effect on my life in any way. As usual you are spewing your hatred without full knowledge of when and how they do things. Piece of advice "Let it go, it's not healthy to hang on to it" :)

JUST SAYIN!

I didn't really think she would play anyway, but I didn't expect her to get an infected foot. Ouch. That spot is not good.

So as far as the number of times kim has pulled out late compared with other players your response to this is so what. In other words to not listen. A boss at work doesn't have to know someone personally to know that someone alwys taking time off and not giving much in the way of explanations is more suspect and suspicious than someone who does it very little and then usually for accidents at work. Even more so if he saw on the news the person always phoning in at the last minute surfing. A policement is bound to treat someone with a record with more suspicion than someone without a record even though not knowing them personally. You are ridiculous thay you should apply the same standards in both incidents because you don't know them personally. I know Kim is open honest for these reasons. If you can't accept it and you think she's not injured despite all the proof she can possibly give - that's your problem.

On the subject of overplaying - where did that sudden change of topic come from? I made no reference to overplaying or underplaying which is a completely different subject to honesty. First you basically question Kim's honesty by saying we don't know she's honest. Then you flip-flop and change the subject o something totally different.

Now you say you don't know about surfing. So why did you blab about swimming in your 1st post.
