Will 2006 jinx Kim like another “even years” did?

2002: some injuries (shoulder??)
2004: you know it’s the worst year
2006: ??? (it’s frightening)

I don't think the year has anything to do with it. In 2003 Kim played a huge amount of tennis and that took a toll physically, emotionally and mentally. She was burnt out and tired. When you are tired and not 100% fresh physically you are susceptible to injury that is what happened to Kim in 2004, she wasn't fresh and hadn't recovered from her previous season. This year is the same. In 2005 we all know she had a great year but it wore her out, she was dead by the end of the season. Kim was not physically conditioned and prepared to start a new season and like I said before if you are not at 100% fresh physically the chances of an injury are very high. Her ankle is not as serious in direct comparison to her wrist, if Kim gives it time it will heal by itself and she will be recovered physically and mentally and be ready to go for the rest of the season from clay on. While the others are playing now, they will be tired by the end of the season, Kim is having a break now she will be fresher than they are later. Kim's body is just telling her to rest and if she doesn't rush things and gives it time she will be fine from April on.

Well yes, but there is still a difference between working hard and playing a lot (with the traveling, etc. that comes with it). Plus, while another player might play as many tournaments, there was not anyone who played as many matches (Kim won so many more).

I disagree it doesn't happen to other players. Look at Serena. Lindsay has had more than her share of injuries over the years and has an ankle injury at the moment (not as serious as Kim's but an injury none the less). Sharapova had a huge 2004 and last year she was struck down by what was originally diagnosed as a strained pec but turned out to be a dislocated rib. Also Myskina, she had a big 2004 winning RG getting to number 3, last year she was burnt out and also had shoulder problems during the clay season. Then there is Henin, who had her virus, then a knee injury, then a hamstring problem.

It's true that the uneven years have been incredibly good for Kim and the even ones not. Spooky!

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!

Jesus, poor Kim'll probably not go out again for the rest of the year if she reads this. Is it not true that she's already stopped going to the basketball because she claims they always lose when she attends?

She'll be fine, think positive, everyone!!

Patiently waiting to join the silver surfers
