I don't have much expectation if any for this tournament. Kim has not gotten to train at all on clay and will be tired from having to fly from Miami to Spain. I don't think we can take much from Kim's results here; it's just nice she's getting some match play on clay.
That's a tough draw. Dulgheru won Warsaw last year. The bottom half is more loaded than the top. I'm sure the tournament will give Kim as late a start as possible. But I don't really have that high hopes for this draw.
Kim Clijsters speelt volgende week het tornooi van Marbella. Om zo snel mogelijk weer gravelgevoel te kweken. Maar finaal komt het nog goed uit, want haar huis in Opitter is nog niet klaar.
'We zijn nog aan het renoveren thuis', aldus Kim. 'Als we terugkeren uit Marbella, gaan we bij oma slapen. Als ik Marbella niet had gespeeld? Dan waren we iets vroeger bij oma gaan wonen.'

Kim Clijsters plays a tournament in Marbella next week. To get her gravel feeling back as soon as possible. But in the end it's also a great solution, because her house in Opitter isn't ready yet.
'We're still renovating at home. When we get back from Marbella, we're going to sleep with my grandmother. If I hadn't played Marbella? Then we wuold have gone to live with grand mother a little earlier.'
