Kim in Toronto

The draw from Toronto is out! Here is Kim's quarter of the draw.

Francesca Schiavone vs. Bye
Ekaterina Makarova vs. Rebecca Marino
Lucie Safarova vs. Qualifier
Qualifier vs. Svetlana Kuznetova

Jelena Jankovic vs. Julia Goerges
Alona Bondarenko vs. Serena Williams
Qualifier vs. Qualifier
Bye vs. Kim

Not an easy draw after the second round!!!!! Serena is her third-round match if all goes as expected. This is a very difficult draw considering how little match play Kim has had this summer. At least she will have some tough matches before the US Open.
COME ON KIM!

Re: Kim in Toronto

Yay! So excited for this

Hopefully this match with Serena will motivate Kim for the HC season.

Re: Kim in Toronto

I'm not happy at all with this draw. I was hoping for some easy rivals in the first couple of rounds, just to get some matches under her belt. Would be nice if she could beat Serena but I'm not holding my breath. Well, just beat the qualifier first. There's also Cincinatti so I think she should get enough match practice before the US Open

2R vs Zheng or Brianti

Swiss champs.

Re: Kim in Toronto

I really do not know what to expect with Kim's form this tournament. Hopefully she can get some good matches under her belt (which means consistent play against Zheng) and get her confidence back up.

Re: Kim in Toronto

I hope the possible match against Serena will awake the fire in Kim that I have missed the past year.

Re: Kim in Toronto

Kim won the first set 6-3. Her serve seems abysmal though judging by the statistics. Six double-faults and a 49% first-serve percentage (that was in the 30s for most of the set). According to Dewulf Filip Kim called the trainer during the changeover at 5-2. He says the first set win was not convincing.
EDIT: I believe it is an abdominal injury.
