Sydney 2011

I couldn't see a thread for Sydney, so thought I'd start one as it begins tomorrow! And I'm very excited because I get to go!!

It should be a good try out for kim with 7 of the top ten in the tournament. She plays Alexandra Dulgheru in the first round. Kim is the 3rd seed

Kim Clijsters!

Your opponent is not the person on the other side of the net, or the team on the other end of the field, or even the bar you must high-jump. Your opponent is yourself - your negative internal waves, your level of determination.

Re: Sydney 2011

A possible second round match against Nadia Petrova. That could be some great revenge, especially since it would be in Australia. It would be a cleansing win and a nice way to enter the Australian Open. It is a tough draw, she could face Azarenka in the quarters and Wozniack in the semis.

Re: Sydney 2011

i think it is a perfect draw should she come through it. easy 1st round really, then a step up and a match with meaning vs petrova, a step up again to vika and then again to caro.

hopefully her tennis will go up a level each match as her opponent does.

Re: Sydney 2011

So does anyone know of a live feed site? I thought TennisTV had it for some reason but apparently not.

Re: Sydney 2011

According to Bet365 Kim won the first set 61 but on the WTA scoreboard her match has not yet begun... Strange.

Re: Sydney 2011

87% first serve percentage! Great way to begin the year. She had no trouble whatsoever it seems, especially on her serve. Only one double-fault. Excellent. I am hoping for some Petrova revenge next...

Re: Sydney 2011

Kim was hitting the ball great today! And it was good she finished so quick cos it was so frigging hot out there! Just loved some of the angles she hit. She gave a great interview too - said she wanted to climb the sydney harbour bridge while she was here, spoke about nerves and how she's getting better at handling them and what a great crowd we were :lol (except on boxing day when people get drunk were her words! :lol )

Petrova match should be interesting. Hopefully revenge

GO KIM!!!!!!!

Kim Clijsters!
