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
