Lightbulb Am I the only one pleased Kim's retiring soon?

Kim used to be alright but ever since her US Open win, she's got very annoying.

1) Her *injuries* - That was the worst annoying thing ever in Australia when she was so *injured* and then won matches 6-1 6-2. Then she got really injured *karma* Supposed to be out weeks, comes back on scheudle Odd.

2) How she tries to always be an angel - I'm fed up of her trying to come across so wonderful, it's patronising.

3) Her motivation - Ever since AO, she has looked completely fed up with tennis. Either turn up and enjoy it or go home and make some kids.

4) Her constant put downs on herself - Kim should be proud of her slam, not go on about how every top player is so much better than herself. She's a great player, yet acts no better than someone ranked in the 100's.

5) Her game getting worse - At the US, she looked unstoppable, now she's changed to wanting to end ralllies after every 2 shots. Why? Must be motivation.

I knew some people will label me has a hater, but I find her tiring. I'm sure she's a nice person, but it makes her frustrating has a tennis fan

I would think that you would be able to relish the things you have in common with her...guess not.

Kim is being payed by the Belgian Government to tank matches against Henin. After Henin wins Wimbledon this year she will no longer have to do it so that's why she's going to retire next year. Competition will get a lot difficult for Henin from now on.

I think she's a very good player when motivated but yes, she is annoying.

1) if anyone couldnt see she was injured in the early rounds, they were delusional/blind. it wasnt her who was always talking about her injury. the media was. what can she do when practically every bloody question in her press conferences were about her injury? if there is karma in tennis, it should hit someone else real hard, but it hasnt.
2)if 99% of the players, men and women say she is, maybe she is really like that. tough shit she's a nicer person than you.
3) did you see her reaction when she lost earlier today?
4) when people are humble, it's called putting themselves down. when people talk good about themselves, it's called arrogance
5) what does motivation has to do with trying to "end rallies after 2 shots" (which isnt true anyway)? just finding excuses to show she lacks motivation?

she reaches 3 GS semifinals in a row, and people are calling for her head to be chopped, she should retire. then shouldnt everyone else except amelie and JHH?

Honestly? No, you´re not the only one.
I don´t mind, if she makes room for player, who wants to win tournaments.

The worst part? Most people knocking on Kim right now don't even care for her. They oly pissed cause she didn't beat Justine for their pleasure.

From what I heard she played great today, and she really wanted to win, but so did the other player, you know.
