Us Open 2009

Thought we needed a seperate thread for the US Open

Some statistics to start with:
win-loss record: 23-5
win-loss against top-10: 4-5
last loss: 2003 final to Henin-Hardenne
last result: winner in 2005

A trip down memory lane







Good luck, Kim!

It will be awesome to see Kim back at the US Open. It's been 4 years, way too long!

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!

Re: Us Open 2009

Good draw for Kim Kutuzova R1. Bartoli as her seed for R2. If she clears Bartoli (which...she did ) Kim's path is clear to the 4th round

3: Medina G.
4: V. Williams
1/4: Azarenka
1/2: S. Williams
F: Safina/Jankovic/Kuznetsova/Sharapova

Re: Us Open 2009

Not a bad draw for Kim, until 4th round anyway and I could live with the 4th round.
Think if she made 4th round it would put her close to top 100 also after 3 events?

Good luck Kim!

Re: Us Open 2009

I'm happy with the draw. Could have been much worse!

Kutuzova..i think she was the one that gave Maria a hard time at Wimbledon. She played well. Kim should win.
2nd round rematch.. Bartoli would be seeking revenge though. So that could be a tough match.
Dokic 3rd round maybe? that would be nice to watch.
Venus in 4th..well she is definitely the sister that is easier to take down. Plus it's before a QF so that's good. She has a great chance.

If she makes it to 4th round that would be awesome.
One match at a time.
Can't wait!

Re: Us Open 2009

Kutuzova is a big hitter, but of course it could be so much worse.
Bartoli will be difficult if it happens. She won't lose the first gour games, that's for sure. No one should underestimate her just because Kim won in Cincinnati.
Dokic is such a wild card, who knows what form she'll bring. And Garrigues would be a kind third round.
And then the fourth would be Venus. I won't think that far ahead though.
