"Desert Island" Kim matches

God I'm so tired today, my brain has practically stopped. Can't do any more work, so to pass remaining time in office (1 hour and 2 minutes!!) am posting this new thread.

This works on the same principle as "desert island discs" - where you have to select only 10 songs to have with you on a desert island. So, if you could only have 3 Kimmy matches to play back on a desert island, which ones would they be and why? Here's mine off the top of my head:

1. The USO Final (its too bloody obvious to have to explain why).

2. Kim v Amelie round robin in YEC 2003 (because it was a close match with some awesome rallies and shot making).

3. Kim v Davenport, Sydney, 2003 (crap match, but I like the Kimmy tantrum/swearing in it)

Patiently waiting to join the silver surfers

1. uso-final...absolutely important without a doubt
2. kim - maria in the miami-final´05...i think it was the most emotional match i´ve ever seen
3. kim - jennifer capriati in the FO-Final`01`...tough match,really exiting...although kim lost,i really liked it
i keep the match kim - chanda @ the YEC´03 in reserve...kim´s fighting spirit was unbelieveable there + kim/els - dulko/diaz-oliva @fed cup´05 (emotional,exiting,great )

Kim Clijsters
QUEEN OF HEARTS


Finally she´s back!:

Excellent choice, Fi.
That round robin match at YEC 2003 was awesome. Kim was on fire and there was one rally she won after which her jubilation was fantastic.
Do you realize I only saw one set of the Kim/Davenport match? I was in Sydney when it was played and it seemed every TV channel was showing the bloody cricket as there was a cricket tourny going on at that moment. It learnt me that tennis is not the most important sport in Australia.

As far as I am concerned, if I am only allowed to choose 3 matches, I won't make things difficult. Just give me the QF, SF and F of USO2005, will ya?

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!
26.03.2009: More Kim years to come!

1. US Open final, no doubt
2. Kim vs. Venus - US Open QF. That match was just unbelievable, what a fight. I can watch that match all day, over and over and over again
3. I first thought about Kim vs. Maria in the Miami final, since that one was so beautiful and indeed, quite emotional as well, after that horrible year she had. But I think that even though that one was great, I'm gonna go for that RG final against Jennifer in 2001 Great fight and that's where I discovered Kim, so it also has a special meaning to me.
