I noticed it in the first match I saw her, and thought, this girl will damage her right ankle soon.
She is still walking fine one and a half season later.

I love them but they sometimes do scare the shit out of me! :eek: :o :p I really hope she doesn't injure herself one day doing them!!

They are very entertaining :D But I'm always scared for her welfare.

Wasn't Kim's mother a gymnast?

Yes, she was a gymnast.

This is what Brad Falkner (TennisWeek) had to say:

"The sharp shriek of squealing sneakers skidding across the Staples Center court echoed throughout the arena. Kim Clijsters' consecutive sliding splits sounded strenuous, looked positively painful and elicited a collective groan from a sympathetic court-side crowd."

:D But boy do we love 'em!:bounce: :bounce:

It is quite amazing to see her do it! I love that she is a great player with a trademark maneuver! Really adds to the sport!

I really love seeing her do these splits. It's just soo different in tennis.

I love those splits - any more pics - She did the splits in Wimbeldon one year into the net.
