can be very tricky for kim. not a very good match up for her.

if she gets through...potentially, she still has to playpenneta,petrova jaja and bepa, kim has struggled against them since her comeback.

justine kim final pls. maria/venus and kim final are also acceptable for me.

I'll get flame for this but i think if its a backhand match its in Dinara favor and she has to play lights out or first strike tennis.

Even if you're not a Safina fan, ya gotta feel for her :lol: :awww: She keeps running into the top players in the first round of every tournament and it's been impossible for her to build any momentum and regain some of her old form.

I do think she'll put up a fight in at least one of the sets, but Kim should win in straights :shrug:

Jan 14th, 2011, 03:06 AM
Unfortunately for Safina, she is not going to have enough matches to build momentum if she keeps drawing opponents like Clijsters in the very 1st round. Hopefully, she won't do what Ivanovic did during her slump (i.e. play all the biggest tourneys and keep getting mauled left and right until benefiting from divine intervention to regain some form), but play some MMs and build her confidence and serve.

Excuse me, but the nature of her GS final defeats was disgusting and deprived me of any warm feeling towards her plain and simple :shrug:

I feel similarily. Safina in a slam final is just a gaurantee of a terrible match and easy win for the opponent. She has had 3 chances which most players dream of and botched all of them badly and she isnt even that good of a player even at her best, so why root for her to get even more opportunities. Not to mention there are many women on tour who play more interesting and aesthetically pleasing games with a better on court temperment (even on the current mess of a WTA).

She only really botched one slam final IMO... 08 RG was her first slam final, no one really expected her to make the finals and it's understandable that she lost to Ivanovic who had 2 slam finals for experience. 09 AO she was blown off the court by Serena. She didn't have a chance to lose it for herself. 09 RG is only slam final that she should've and could've won but she cracked under the emense pressure.

08 RG was a good enough performance for her I guess. Still if losing comfortably to Ivanovic is her best then that doesnt say much and 3 slam finals is enough for her. 09 AO of course she had no chance of winning even if she had played her best but her play still sucked bigtime. And 09 RG was an atrocity. Sorry 3 slam finals is plenty enough for her. Not that there is much chance we will ever see her in another one, and the WTA is better off for it.

Well it's obvious losing in 2 to Ivanovic isn't the best she can perform but I think she's a much better player than she's played in slam finals. The media ate her alive and during the 09 RG finals, it looked like she wanted to win for everyone else more so than winning for herself and I think that's why she choked epically. The weight of the world was on her shoulders and she was starting to crack. It's really a shame that so much pressure was put on someone who clearly couldn't handle it.

I am not even counting the loss against Serena against Safina. Serena is probably the best player ever when playing well. Kuz played amazingly in that french final(maybe her best match ever).. and at her first FO.. Safina had to have been dead tired from all the 3-set matches.. plus Ana was better than her then. I would see if she actually went into a final expected to win, but in all her finals she was the underdog...

After Wickmayer in Auckland, Bartoli in Hobart
Now Clijsters in Australian Open. Perhaps Serena Williams for her come-back at Miami :p
