guyz i think kim will miss Miami, i juz read this article from YAHOO, here ya go

Clijsters injury could be worse than expected

By RAF CASERT, Associated Press Writer
March 16, 2004
BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) -- Kim Clijsters could miss up to six weeks because of a torn tendon in her left wrist.

The injury was first diagnosed as a stress reaction, but Clijsters said Tuesday on her Web site that the tendon in her left wrist had a tear of a little more than half an inch.

``I am not allowed to move my wrist for 10 days,'' she said. ``At that stage a further diagnosis will be made, and if it is negative, it would mean up to three more weeks of full rest.

Clijsters has had her left hand in a brace since Sunday and the injury, which forced her out of the Indian Wells tournament, could keep her off the circuit until May, she said Tuesday.

``Then it would be tough to get in top shape for the Fed Cup,'' she said. Belgium hosts Croatia in Clijsters' hometown of Bree on April 24-25.

One week earlier, she was supposed to play against her fiance, Lleyton Hewitt.

``It would be too bad because I was in great shape,'' she said.

Clijsters won back-to-back tournaments in Paris and Antwerp before her second injury of the season.

Clijsters, ranked No. 2 behind fellow Belgian Justine Henin-Hardenne at Indian Wells, hurt her left wrist in a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Angelika Roesch on Friday.

She couldn't recall how she hurt herself, but said the pain began late in her match against Roesch.

Even though she's right-handed, Clijsters has a fearsome double-fisted backhand, making it impossible to play with an injured left hand.

Oh Bugger, Kim's out of Miami too

According to the BBC website ..........

That means we wont get to see her play until May now (except for you lucky Belgians, provided Kim's fit by April).

kind of expected and maybe it's the best thing, just let the injury heal and rest a lot...
but, that doesn't take away that I'm very disappointed...

COME ON KIM!

Thanks for everything Kim!!!

yeah, she lost in the quarter final, I think, so , she'll lose some points but last year she didn't play in Indian Wells, so she'll win a lot of points there...

COME ON KIM!

I don't think she has officially withdrawn. It's probably just an an assumption based on earlier articles on how long she will be out. Not that I expect her to play, but I doubt this withdrawal is official yet.

I didn't expect her to play, which is a pity cos I don't think the draw will be very strong, (guess its good for up-and-coming players tho).
She really needs to rest.
Like Keira, it doesn't make a huge difference to me cos i won't see any tennis on tv till the french!
Oh well. It makes January so much better cos u get 4 full weeks in a row! I'm in heaven!

We will miss you Kim!.


Best of Luck in 2007 to: Kim & Bryan, Lleyton, Alicia, Todd, Sam, Chris, Casey, Wayne, Kirsten & all the other Aussies & injured players.
