Re: Calls that would have change careers, matches, players

A couple of years ago, Justine admitted in an interview that ball was in (same interview in which she admitted she was wrong in the "hand incident"). Perhaps Kim should have played it safer, but you...

Re: Gilles Simon and the equal prize money debate.

I'm surprised nobody has picked up on this argument. Would anybody claim Usain Bolt should earn less prize money than Kenenisa Bekele, just because the first runs only 100 m and the other 5000 m? I...

Re: CAS hearing on 5/03/12 as Swiss Federal Court denied Wickmayer/Malisse appeal

Good news for Yanina & Xavier :bounce: : WADA has withdrawn its appeal with CAS, since there is no legal ground anymore. Flemish legislation regarding whereabouts & doping has been declared void by...

Re: AO R16: [11] Kim Clijsters def. [5] Li Na 46 76(6) 64 saving 4 straight matchpoin

So? Kim choked several times in her first career, and that's the reason Serena, Venus & Justine were always considered the superior players. Now that Kim is mentally strong, and beating Na Li who,...

Re: Kim: "good feeling for AO; had cramps"

Lousy translation of what she really said in the news: she felt her left hip "blocked" or "cramped up", to the extent that every movement hurt. That's why she quit, because she felt it only got...

Re: Will Kim Clijsters play US Open 2011?

For heavens sake, the girl is injured, and has been for most of the time since february.
After the ankle injury, she worked her ass off to be able to play RG. As a lot of people predicted, it is...

Re: A women's tennis player makes Time 100.

I think you underestimate the appeal Kim has to the general public. Very few top athletes have had a baby and won a Slam/world title/olympic medal afterwards - I can think of only a few. This is...

Re: Why can't there be unlimited challenges?

What about the umpire, when/if (s)he wants to overrule? Especially if (s)he thinks a call is wrong, but is not 100% sure? If (s)he can check discretely whether the call is correct, wouldn't that be...

Re: " I deserved to be the world N1" (Caroline Wozniacki)

Kim played her first come back match on august 6th, 2009. She regained the n° position on februari 11th, 2011. That's 18 months, not 2 years.
And off course she got wild cards. Every top player...

Re: Kim has a real shot at wimbledon this year i think

To win on clay you need patience - and be concentrated for a long time. And Kim is sometimes lacking in that department I'm afraid :angel:

That being said, I'll cheer for her every match at RG;...

Re: Paris R2: Kimadusah petrifies Barrois 4-6 6-2 6-0


People really need to make up their mind. First they complain Kim only plays part time, and now that she commits to playing the minimum required n° of tournaments, she's a tourney whore......

Re: Clijsters to quit in two years (article)

The difference with football players is the amount of time they are on the road I think. Footballplayers operate from one place (their home is where their team is located), perhaps they have to...

Re: Kim's coach : "If she keeps playing at her best, no one will be able to beat her.

By the way, IMO he did not say "if she keeps playing her best...", he said:

"Et je suis convaincu que si elle réussit à produire son meilleur tennis, elle gagnera toujours le match. Même contre...

Re: Oracene hates Clijsters

I do not know Kim Clijsters personally, but most people who do, like other players or journalists, generally call her a nice person.

Moreover, she won the Karen Krantzke Sportmanship award 7...

Re: The timing of Henin's retirement announcement was not too classy

I think the timing was not that bad. By the time we have a new Australian Open champion on saturday (whoever it will be), Justine's retirement will be old news.
Like others said, if she told it...

Re: AO QF: Clijsters def. Radwanska 6-3 7-6(4)

Although I agree Kim didn't play her best, and has to step it up big time against Vera, I want to put some things in perspective.

Many people at TF are whining about Caro & Vera being boring,...

Re: Eastbourne QF: Evil Azarenka def. Saint Kim 7-6(6) 6-4

Oh well, rather now than breezing through at Eastbourne and failing big time at Wimbledon. At least she can't be accused anymore of peaking too soon ;)

I think you're wrong there - I've...
