WTA Tour Year End Championships 2005

Right I'll take the initiative to open this thread, with a poll...
Last tourney of a season that has been bloody unbelievable for us Kim fans. I don't think we could have dreamt of a better year for Kim after 2004. 9 titles including the USopen


YEC

The poll will be open until november 7th, day the YEC starts

so my vote to the non jinxing strategy since it has worked all year and the only time I voted for the title, she lost earlier ... I still think she'll win it, and I hope she takes the #1 spot even if it's close, she bloody deserves it!!!

I voted dont want to jinx. Ive got full confidence that Kim will go on and win it, but I am to scared to vote it. It would also be really amazing if she could finish the year as number one.

fifi optimistic? that's some progress I agree she will

And I can't bloody believe this, we have decided to go in a week end with family the week end of november 11th (which is a bank holiday here) and I just realised it's the week end of the YEC not sure I'll have coverage and even less mobile network meaning I can't have the scores in real time

Just as an info, I just read an article in french saying Justine won't be playing at the YEC Since this thread is about the masters I might as well put all the info concerning it as it will have an effect on Kim's draw.
Here is the link for those who can read it and there probably will lead to some discussions about her here... but I'll just give the main ideas...
Justine forfait pour les masters
  • she won't play because of her injury and she's frightened if she did play it would have an effect on the healing and on next season's preparation.
  • she won't have Pat Echeberry as a physical trainer anymore because her body won't handle carrying on at the same rythm,
  • Fed cup she said she wouldn't play in 2006 but said she could reconsider that decision, she'll wait until after the AO... she would do it for her fans only

Not surprised by her withdrawing for the YEC off course. But damn, that fine But oh well, it's her decision and I can understand why she's not going.

Definitely Mon! I still don't like Justine but the field at the YEC is gonna be weird this year: between Kim and Lindsay it'll be no?

Those 2 appear to be the strongest as of today yep. But hey, it's the Masters we're talking about, last tournament of the year, so I'm expecting something from the others as well, but I think it would be surprising if one of them or both of them for that matter don't make it to the SF or F

Aah, major jinxing, forget about what I said
