Arrow Indian Wells 05

it's not long anymore, and I found this article about Kim arriving in the US

from Teletekst één :
(translation to follow )

KIM CLIJSTERS TRAINT AL ONDER DE ZON

Kim Clijsters zet haar comeback voort.
De tennisster is woensdag al met haar
trainer naar de Verenigde Staten afge-
reisd voor haar volgende toernooi,
Indian Wells, dat pas woensdag begint.

Het vroege vertrek heeft drie redenen,
weet HBvL. Clijsters wil het tijdver-
schil van negen uur verwerken, ze wil
ook wennen aan de zomerse temperaturen
in Californië en de voormalige nummer
een wil graag buiten een bal slaan.

Met haar gevoelige pols gaat het prima.
Die heeft de comeback in Antwerpen goed
verteerd. De volgende weken wacht een
test met ook het toernooi van Miami.

COME ON KIM!

Thanks for everything Kim!!!

and here we are...
sorry for the spelling mistakes!

KIM CLIJSTERS ALREADY TRAINING UNDER THE SUN

Kim Clijsters continues her comeback.
The tennisplayer has travelled to the United
States with her coach for her next
tournament on Wednesday already.

The early departure has three reasons.
Clijsters wants to get used to the time
difference of nine hours, she also wants to
get used to the hot temparatures in California
and the former number one would like to play
outdoor.

With the sensitive wrist everything is going fine.
The wrist recovered well after the comeback in
Antwerp. The next coulpe of weeks another test is
waiting with also the tournament of Miami.

COME ON KIM!

Thanks for everything Kim!!!

i don't know..but i'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed!!! hoping she gets a good draw!! dispite what she sais that it's nothing that she has to play top-10 players early coz that's good for her form, i would prefer he seeing her play top 10 players a bit later in the tournement!! total selfishness i know!!!
anyway..
when is it exactly the tournement??next week?

If I understand what it says on the site - http://www.pacificlifeopen.com/en/tournament/calendar/ - the WTA main draw is on Monday, March 7.

I'll miss the tournament - I'll be away most of the time .

Same for me here (no need to when you go on holiday though )

As far as I know no internet in our hotel, only Belgian newspapers with a day delay...so I might get to know the scores something like 3 days after the match

GO KIM!!! I love this tournament, it's here that Kim played a great final against Serena some years ago.

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!

Poor Mark, going on holiday do we need to feel sorry for you
Anyway I'm sure you'll be able to look at the scores and results online whereever you go no?

Dunno what TV coverage you Belgian and other guys are getting of IW, but on Eurosport 2 we don't get any coverage of the tournament until the quarter finals So let's hope Kim can make it at least that far

Go Kimmie ........ can't wait for the draw, in a slightly nervous kind of way! [img]http://smileys.******************/cat/4/4_6_218v.gif[/img]

Patiently waiting to join the silver surfers

Draw is out and it looks like Kim has a feasible one: first Pratt.
Mauresmo and Elena D. looming.
