Re: Kim Clijsters says Serena Williams was her toughest opponent of her career

I just saw this on the WTA site, and she looked absolutely beautiful. I'm a little surprised Serena was considered her toughest opponent, but they did have some very interesting matches over the years, so I respect Kim's answer very much

Re: Kim Clijsters says Serena Williams was her toughest opponent of her career

She had real psychological issues when playing Justine! And her semi final match against Venus at Wimbledon several years ago must have hurt. Maybe that Australian semi against Serena when Kim was well ahead then lost is a big memory!

Agree with her on who looks most likely to lift the Aussie trophy this year!

Considering what she said in her winner's speech in 2011, I think Kim really really wanted to win Australia, probably more than the other slams. Maybe that's why that match stood out to her.

Yeah she looks really good. They should've cast her in the Princess Di biopic.

A new found respect for Kim. She seems very honest and reasonable.

Re: Kim Clijsters says Serena Williams was her toughest opponent of her career

Agreed that Serena is one of her toughest players, well, who didn't feel that way? cough...masha...cough...
But I thought it must be Justine. AO 2003 must be really hurt, but I mean... 3 slam final losses... it must be veeerrrryy hurt.
Unless she felt different because 2010 matches

Re: Kim Clijsters says Serena Williams was her toughest opponent of her career

When Kim was up and coming she was often halted by a young Serena like at Us Open 1999, Indian Wells 2001. And who can ever forget the AO semi 2002 I screamed out loud with joy over Serena's epic comeback. How she charged the net on match point Kim and then read the passing shot and put away the volley with venom!! Oh, the adrenaline!

Re: Kim Clijsters says Serena Williams was her toughest opponent of her career

She does have a winning H2H against Justine and Venus whereas she doesn't against Serena... Logical answer.
