Re: London Olympics 2012

Kim playing 4th match on Court 1! (starting at noon)

about the mixed doubles, there are 12 teams that qualifie because of their rankings, Kim & Oli have no chance getting in like this
but there are also 4 Wild Cards... So they have to hope they get one of these...

Re: London Olympics 2012

Kim looked good! At least, much better than she did at Wimbledon. I think that second set "scare" was good for her. To be able to regain focus and close it out with good play is definitely good for the confidence. Ivanovic is next. Kim has really been troubled by her in their last two matches but she's never lost to her so Kim just has to play her game. Come on Kim!

Yeah! 2nd set should have been easier! If she plays like these 2 matches, she should beat Ivanovic!!

by the way, Carl Maes set yesterday Kim will play doubles at the US Open, and rumour has it she would play with Kirsten Flipkens....

Re: London Olympics 2012

Good win from Kim No doubt if she plays her best tennis then she has a chance of going further in the tournament.
Hopefully she can turn it up another gear against Ana in the next round.

Nice to hear Kim wants to finish off her career also with the doubles at the USO.

Re: London Olympics 2012

Flipkens confirmed on Twitter that she and Kim plan on playing doubles together at the US Open.

Unfortunately, Kim did not get a wildcard into the mixed doubles. It's ridiculous. How do Lindstedt/Arvidsson or Vesnina/Youzhny merit it more than Kim and Rochus? So stupid!! I don't know Dutch but Carl Maes appears pissed on Twitter.

Re: London Olympics 2012

No mixed doubles for Kim & Olly ! They did not get the ITF wild cards.
Not sure how I feel - I'd rather not she got injured by playing too much, but it was another shot at a medal for us...

ITF places
Australia: Samantha Stosur / Lleyton Hewitt
GB: Laura Robson / Andy Murray (home players)
Russia: Elena Vesnina / Mikhail Youzhny
Sweden: Sofia Arvidsson / Robert Lindstedt

Alternates:
1. Spain: Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez / Marcel Granollers
2. Romania: Irina-Camelia Begu / Horia Tecau
3. Canada: Aleksandra Wozniak / Daniel Nestor
4. Poland: Klaudia Jans-Ignacik / Mariusz Fyrstenberg

Some weird choices if you ask me... Or is this a random draw?

Carl Maes IS pissed on twitter.
Filip Dewulf asked which criteria they used and he answered "no idea man... Lindstedt is top 10 in doubles, but the rest is incomprehensible. CV's in tennis count for nothing"


Please Kim, show them in singles!

Re: London Olympics 2012

wow, this sucks! Lindstedt and Arvidsson? Yeah, the crowd will love to watch this team play...
I can understand the Hewitt/Stosur and Murray/Robson choice, and, ok, Vesnina & Lindstedt are good double players, but I reallly don't get it....
And if you look at the alternates, especially the Spanish team

don't forget Kim and Oli both one one or more doubles Grand Slams in their career...

Re: London Olympics 2012

Kim is first up (11:30 AM) on Court 18. Court 18!?!?!? That's a little absurd for two major champions...

Win big tomorrow Kim! If only to show you deserved that mixed doubles wildcard.
