Re: 2009 schedule

There were reports Kim will play China Open but from her interview after the final she didn't mention that. She just mentioned Luxembourg and then Australia... I hope she plays!

Re: 2009 schedule

Wouldn't mind seeing her play the China Open And no doubt she'll be the heavy favourite to win in Luxembourg for the 6th time when she plays there. But I think that Kim will take around a good month off to relax & enjoy the time to celebrate her USO win with her loved ones before going to Luxembourg. That's my guess.

Hope she decides to play the 2010 Brisbane tourney

Re: 2009 schedule

Yeah she mentioned her sister due to have her baby in a couple of weeks and wants to be around for her.
No need to rush. She's going to play limited tournaments now. More so this year. She will increase that next year I think as she tries to work family life with tennis life.

Not complaining tho! She won US open omg still in shock lol.
Can't wait to hear about her schedule!

Re: 2009 schedule

I think it's a good decision to play only Luxembourg for the remaining of the year. Her body needs rest, plus she has more important priorities in her life. It sucks for us, her fans, but I understand where she's coming from. She has a family, and family always will be a number one priority for her, not tennis.

I prefer to see her more concentrating on big or important for her events than playing full time and exhausting herself like the rest of the girls do. But, I'm not sure if the WTA would allow her to be on the tour only a part time.

Re: 2009 schedule

I would honestly be happy to see her in Beijing and Luxembourg
Beijing is so important, and I know Kim doesn't want to play too much, but it's a PM

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: 2009 schedule

I dont believe Kim ever intended, or even asked for a WC for Beijing. Neither she, nor Golazo ever said anything about Beijing. Moreover, why would she plan on playing Beijing when Elke's about to give birth at that time?

It is most definitely one of the Chinese media's infamous fake stories, where they make up quotes and pick up stories from everywhere.

Re: 2009 schedule

I think it would be better for her if she plays a limited schedule this year. Then she will be free from the onerous top 10 requirements and play as she wishes to concentrate on the slams next year.

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Re: 2009 schedule

Kim Clijsters weigert wildcard voor toernooi Bali

De organisatoren van het toernooi van Bali (start op 4 november) hadden een wildcard in petto om Kim Clijsters naar de andere kant van de wereld te halen, maar de winnares van de US Open ziet de verre reis blijkbaar niet zitten. Ze heeft vriendelijk bedankt voor het toernooi dat als de B-Masters bestempeld wordt. De echte Masters, met de top-8 van de WTA, vinden in Qatar plaats.

Dat betekent dat Clijsters dit jaar nog maar twee keer aan het werk komt, telkens dicht bij huis: over twee weken op het WTA-toernooi van Luxemburg en op 9 december voor de Antwerp Diamond Games. In 2010 vliegt Clijsters er wel meteen stevig in met toernooi van Brisbane als voorbereiding op de Australian Open. (kh)

Re: 2009 schedule

First match against Meghann Shaughnessy!
Will be a little tricky with Meghann who likes to come to the net. But Kim should do fine .

Re: 2009 schedule

Kim should do fine against Shaughnessy. I think she is a shoe in to win this tourney.
