So glad Kim came back in 2009. Now I think she's timed it absolutely right to retire both from a family and a tennis point of view. Her body can't stand up to the physical demands of the tour any more and I wouldn't like to see her reduced to playing a tournament, out through injury, coming back and out again etc another year. I always think that give it a year from when you were at the top to confirm you have achieved all you can and then that's the perfect time to retire from a tennis point of view. And I think that's exactly what has happened.

She can be very proud of her career. And she gave it all she could and put right that slam count before 2007 which just didn't do justice to how good she actually was. Nice win against Venus but exhos and playing a full season on the tour are completely different ball games.

It's sad that she's leaving when this last year she couldn't compete at anywhere near her best and if she stayed on could perhaps have had a few more good Slam runs but hey she's made up her mind and it was great that she could say goodbye in Belgium where both herself and Justine ignited a humongous interest in the sport and hopefully in the near future we'll see the champions they've inspired.
Very well said.. It's beyond my comprehension how anyone could sit behind a computer and spew such venom towards any professional tennis player.. I sometimes wonder about the ages of some of the posters here... Meanwhile, farewell Kim... You were great for the tour and will surely be missed... I'm so happy Miss Venus was there to share your special day

Seriously. This was a goodbye to one of the best and most popular players of this era, and I can only imagine that Venus agreed to participate out of respect and fondness for Kim. We should all be grateful to both of these wonderful athletes for what we have enjoyed over the years, and that they came together to show their appreciation for their fans.

All that talent and Kim could never seem to weather the storm when the going got tough. Even when she came back once the wins didn't come easily she retreated back to her usual pattern. I really hope Kim is happy and fully retired now. It seems like she's been on a farewell tour for a year. lol

Yeah I am trolling for sure . And you clearly didn't imply Kim didn't want to face a top 3 player in her last match so that she didn't get her ass kicked the last time she played and was loudly celebrated .
After someone said Venus was "classy enough not to beat Kim in her last match":

And indeed, along with Justine, Venus was Kim's main rival. They played many high quality matches. Before 2005 Venus won most of them, after 2005 it was the opposite. Kim leads the H2H.
So apart from this you're 100% right, including your rudeness. Feel free to insult me again, btw. Kthxbye .

I personally always enjoyed Clijsters vs. Venus. Even in the beginning when Vee had the edge it was always a matchup I looked forward to. Of course Kim finally righted the ship and found ways to better compete and turn their H2H more in her favor.

Sad to see her leave again- I will definitely miss her and sadly I NEVER got my dream final in a slam Serena vs. Clijsters. I will forever have my memories of seeing Serena and Kim play live at the YECs in Los Angeles.

Happy momhood!
