Re: London Olympics 2012

Vinci made the fourth round of Wimbledon this year so Kim cannot be too rusty. I have no idea what to expect from Kim. If she's 100% healthy (BIG if) the motivation is definitely there so anything's possible... I just hope Kim enjoys the experience and gets to play her best tennis injury-free.

Re: London Olympics 2012

article in today's newspaper:

Buikspier van Clijsters is beter maar niet genezen




Twee dagen voor de start van het olympische tennistoernooi hielden we een vinger aan de veelbesproken buik van Kim Clijsters. Conclusie: ‘Ze is niet 100 procent, maar ze kan gecontroleerd spelen', aldus coach Carl Maes. ‘De hamvraag is alleen: hoe lang.'

Kim Clijsters trainde gisteren twee keer. ‘s Ochtends een dubbeltje met Olivier Rochus, tegen Stefan Wauters en Reginald Willems. Voorbereiding op het gemengd dubbel. Al gaan ze pas dinsdag weten of ze de tabel halen. Na de middag enkel een conditietraining.

Ogenschijnlijk ondervond Kim Clijsters geen last van de buikspier. Maar, zoals Carl Maes aanstipte, een training is geen match. ‘Ze kan serveren. Niet 100 procent, maar toch voldoende. Alleen is de vraag: wat geeft het als ze tien, twintig keer na elkaar moet serveren. Met de stress van een match erbovenop.'

Nog even oprakelen: Kim Clijsters speelde Wimbledon met een scheurtje in de buikspier van gemiddeld 1,2 cm. Met de juiste taping werd de blessure gestabiliseerd en kon Clijsters ook blijven tennissen. Na Wimbledon nam ze één week volledige en twee weken relatieve rust. Wat is de toestand nu? ‘We hebben een nieuwe echografie laten nemen', aldus Maes. ‘Het is beter, maar volledig genezen is het niet. Ze zal dus niet 100 procent zijn, maar ze kan gecontroleerd spelen. Net zoals Wimbledon eigenlijk.'

De loting was Kim Clijsters relatief gunstig gezind. De Italiaanse Roberta Vinci. Haalbaar toch? ‘Alles is haalbaar', aldus Maes. ‘En het had inderdaad veel slechter gekund. Maar Vinci is wel een meisje dat op gras kan spelen. Vraag dat maar aan Kirsten Flipkens.'
Kim Clijsters liet op haar blog weten zich goed te voelen. ‘Als ik goed speel, kan ik veel van de topspeelsters hier verslaan. Een medaille winnen zou geweldig zijn.'

Fila-schoenen

Kim Clijsters zal straks te zien zijn in het Belgische rood-wit van Adidas. Maar ze zal wel op haar vertrouwde Fila-schoenen spelen. ‘De afspraak is dat de prestatiebepalende uitrusting vrij te kiezen is', aldus coach Carl Maes. ‘Schoenen en ook racket vallen daaronder.'

Re: London Olympics 2012

in short:

-Conclusion about the stomach muscle: Carl Maes: ‘she’s not 100%, but she can play in a controled way. The big question is: for how long?’

-Kim practiced twice yesterday: in the morning doubles with Olivier Rochus, playing Stefan Wauters and Reginald Willems. Preparation for mixed doubles, even if they will only know on Tuesday if they are in the draw. In the afternoon: just physical training.

-It looked as if Kim wasn’t bothered by her stomach muscle. But Carl Maes said: practice is not a match. ‘She can serve, not at 100% but good enough. The only question is: what if she has to serve 10 or 20 times in a row. With the stress of the match on top of that.

-They had a new ultrasound, the tear is better, but not fully healed.

-The draw was pretty good. Italian Roberta Vinci. Carl Maes: ‘Everything is possible, it could have been a lot worse. But Vinci is a girl that can play on grass, ask that to Kirsten Flipkens.’

-Kim will be seen in the Belgian red and with from Adidas. But she will play in her well known Fila-shoes. Players can choose themselves everything that can influence there play, like shoes and rackets.

Re: London Olympics 2012

Great win by Kim! Granted I messed up the time conversion and missed the first hour (when I realized I felt sick, haha) but she looked very determined and pumped from what I saw. Hopefully the stomach muscle is okay.

Come on Kim!

Re: London Olympics 2012

Very good first set! But I fear that the Kim's injury was awakened at the end of the match because her service was becoming very bad ... I hope this is not the case !
