Probably. Kim usually kisses her opponent at the end of a match

I forgot that the Championships are sponsored by Porshe. Does that mean Kim won another car-tournament?

For some reason he reminded me of Roberto Begnini (Life is Beautiful) in that overly, ahem, excited way.:p

I would like to join in and congratulate Serena. I'm a big fan of her, but she didn't deserve to win yesterday. Kim definitely deserved the win - she played very well. congrats to her. glad to see her back to her top form.

Hi Althea - :)

There will ALWAYS be a special affinity for Kim by many Venus and Serena fans because of the way that Kim handled that situation at IW. Kim handled that with class at a very young age that so endeared her to many Williams fans even though she lost that day.
Also, Kim is one of the most talented players on tour and it's only a matter of time before she starts winning GS titles.

Again, Kim is a class act as well as her fans. :)

Kim Clijsters wint Masters




http://hetnieuwsblad.clickx.be/sportwereld/beelden/kimmasters.jpg

LOS ANGELES - Kim Clijsters heeft maandag in het Staples Center in Los Angeles verrassend de finale van het WTA-Masters-kampioenschap gewonnen tegen de Amerikaanse nummer één van de wereld Serena Williams. Ze haalde het in twee sets: 7-5 en 6-3. Het is de eerste keer dat een Belgische dit officieuze wereldkampioenschap wint.

Clijsters begon zenuwachtig aan de partij en verloor haar eerste opslagbeurt. Maar ze zette de scheve situatie al in het volgende spel recht. Beide speelsters zouden in de eerste tien games elk drie keer hun opslag verliezen. Het aantal directe fouten van Williams gaf uiteindelijk de doorslag. Ze maakte er 34 tegenover 19 voor Clijsters. Het werd 7-5.

In de tweede set slaagden de finalisten er beter in hun opslagspelletjes te winnen. In de zesde game slaagde Clijsters er toch in om een break te realiseren. Ze kwam 4-2 voor en gaf die voorsprong niet meer uit handen. Ze maakte uit met 6-3. De eerste wedstrijdbal was meteen de goede.

"Dit is de mooiste overwinning uit mijn carrière", zei Clijsters na afloop. "Ik heb geprobeerd om zo weinig mogelijk fouten te maken en ik was ontzettend gemotiveerd omdat ik tot nu toe vijf keer tegen Serena speelde en vijf keer verloor."

"Ik wil geen verontschuldigingen zoeken. Ik heb niet goed gespeeld vandaag", gaf Williams toe. "Clijsters verdient deze overwinning". Clijsters verloor tijdens deze Masters slechts veertien games en evenaart daarmee het record dat Martina Navratilova in 1983 vestigde. Voor deze tiende toernooizege uit haar carrière krijgt de Limburgse 760.000 dollar (ongeveer evenveel euro) en ze wordt vierde op de wereldranglijst na Serena en Venus Williams en Jennifer Capriati.

Kim is a great player and a great person, too... I have been worried that her arm injury would pull down her results and her fear factor on the tour... but she has played so well recently, good for her! Does anyone recall reading a recent diagnosis of the injury? Is it just going to be chronic without surgery, or will it disappear or...? Thanks
Good job, Kim :)
