2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!
26.03.2009: More Kim years to come!
Do you think you could share a little more about her? From a few pictures I've seen of her, she looks fairly tall. Is that right? What's her game like? Is she someone who's going to be in the top 200-100 someday? Does she need a couple years to mature? All I know about Alison is that she just got a WTA ranking this summer and had a couple nice runs at 10Ks, but I suppose a lot of players could do that. Do you think she's capable of more?
I also saw her at Wimbledon and I really liked her. She is very much a finesse type player and she was hitting some very imaginative shots so, without knowing anything about her I stopped and watched her for about half an hour. Her very red hair also makes her very striking. She could almost be Dick Norman's daughter . She was actually the only girl I saw this year in juniors who made any impression on me. I would definately be pleased to see her have a successful career, but obviously it is still very early days to start thinking in those terms. Let's see how she gets on over the next 12 months.
