Yes but if you include the losses as well they would tell a different story

0.88 this year when she wins later today (plays her 100th match in singles today for this year).

You can tell what you want, it was a great year for Kim Clijsters!

Look at entry list from those Tier I en Tier II events this year and tell me what's the difference?

Besides, she did won two grand slams double finals.

While does other Top three players only played 6 or 7 matchen average in three grand Slams, Kim played 13 matchen average in the same time!


Watch out next year, when she doesn't play doubles during these Slams!

Still tier I is tier I. If she can beat Justine at Filderstadt why cant she do it at the Open?!

Well see....I really think that the doubles play was hampering too...so it should be interesting to see how it pans out for Kim.

the stats look a bit dodgy. i seem to recall ASV winning a lot of matches each year around 1993-95, but there's no mention of her in the list. Didn't she set a record of most singles/doubles won/played in 1993?

Depends if you believe in the value of GS. Kim has already beaten more top players this week than anyone did in any 2003 GS and it may well be more than in any two by tommorrow. Then there are all those players ranked so lowly that they would never get into a tier 1 or 2 you have to go through in a GS before you meet the same players who turn up for the Tier 1 and 2 events. Thats before you make any allowance for the fact that Kims wins come in regular weekly tournaments rather than GS wins spread sedately over two weeks. Winning a GS or 2 - particularly if you don't play much else, is arguably far easier than getting Kim's total of wins and top 10 wins.

Probably....but it is still the slams that are the crowns. If Kim herself wants to bring down her schedule to focus on the slams, what does that tell you?!

About Kim beating top players at this tournament than anyone at the GSs. Top players?! What top player?! Only Amelie and Jen....Chanda is good, but she isnt a TOP player.
