Question kims post-injury form

how do you think kim is gonna be playing once she returns?
do you think she has been practising hard on her forehand and serve and in result will be better and might offset a potential weaker backhand?

I'm sure she'll struggle when she returns, but that's a normal thing. Everybody who's been sidelined for a long time comes back rusty. Kim is also known to be someone who needs a lot of matches to find her rhythm. It may be good to come back in Hasselt, a tier III, because this way the other players won't make things too hard for her
Anyway I don't expect her to win as much as she used to the first few tournaments. It'll just be great to see her play again

I agree Bram!
If the Williams' have shown us anything its that its not easy to come back even if you were good before you left!!
But hopefully, Kim can get back up there again! I love watching her play!!

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.

Yes we just want to see her enjoying herself on the court and hopefully coming back to the top soon...

Yea, before the Williams sisters sideline coz of injuries, they were playing magnificient tennis, but after they come back, they're still struggling, and don't really play as they wanted. So if Kim gonna struggle in the first few tournies, we can't blame her.

I think that Kim will be rusty when she comes back, because who wouldn't be??

But, I do know that she will improve with time, and get ready to kick butt!

It's funner watching Kim fight back to the top anyways.

I really don't have a lot of expectations for this year, I just want her back, see her name on some tournament list and watch women's tennis matches with the same passion I did before

uhu..same here...well said!
i thought i was a fan of women tennis in general! i always followed everything..but now that kim is out i'm really neglecting the scores in women tennis! i still watch results sometimes but i have the feeling i couldn't care less...as long as kim comes back...with here absents i found out i really really loved her and i want her back...

maybe she won't be as good as she was at first and maybe she will strugle a bit.. the media will spit her out and say thing about her we don't want to hear...but the most important thing is that we, her fans, give her time! time to adjust to the tennislive again and let her become the same tennis player as she was..
cause i'm sure she will and i'm sure she still is!!

but i know for sure that whatever happens she'll always be my number one

I've been thinking about how the look of the top ten has changed since Kim has been out: the Williams sisters not dominating, Sharapova and Myskina winning their first slams, a resurgence from Lindsay Davenport, good run of form from Mauresmo, etc, and this has got me wondering not so much about Kim's immediate post injury form, but whether we have yet seen the "best" that Kim's game has to offer.

Other than for the odd blip or two, Kim has been in terrific form and amazingly consistent almost from the autumn of 2002. Do you think that we have seen the "best" that Kim's game has to offer, or do you think that there is still more room for improvement?

If we have already seen "the best" and she hasnt won a slam yet, do you think that means she cant possibly win one now?

Or, is her game comfortably good enough to slug it out and its only the mental side that still has to mature that little bit more to achieve that elusive slam victory?

Hope no-one thinks I'm being negative or critical here (although I believe we should be able to criticise where and when its jusitified).

My personal view is that Kim's game is way good enough to win and its just the mental side that still leaves that little bit to be desired. Having said that, if her net game was a little more confident, that would add an extra dimension, but I cant see Kim significantly changing the way she plays now.

What do you all think?

nice post Fiona
I think, looking at Kim's pre-injury form, there was still some progression possible on several points. The question will be, with her injury, will she be able to work on her 'weaker' points? If she can, she should be able to win a grand slam, but off course the opponents are working hard too. Though I wonder if Myskina, Sharapova etc. can win against a Kim in top-form?
pf, I guess we'll just have to wait for Kim's comeback, and certainly give her some time to get back on her top, Kim's someone who needs a lot of matches to get the good rythem, so I think it might take some time for her to get back on the level she was on before her injury...

COME ON KIM!

Thanks for everything Kim!!!

Looking from how she found her way back to the top after the few injuries, I don't worry too much about Kim's come back form. Sure the previous injuries she had did not keep her out as long but still, it means Kim can find her top form after a couple of matches- pretty quick I reckon. But obviously she maybe rusty the first few matches after recovering from injuries- like every other player.

However, I have confidence in her cause she's Kim and I believe that she'll get back to top form in not long time!
