Kim in Wertheim's mailbag April 2003

Think we haven't this one posted yet...

from John Wertheim’s mailbag

Think Kim Clijsters is down to earth? In the weekend before last, the WTA's No. 2 player (yes, you read right; she'll overtake Venus Williams this week) accompanied her beau, Lleyton Hewitt, to the Australia-Sweden Davis Cup tie. Clijsters occupied her time not by luxuriating in her suite, but by shagging balls, fetching towels and -- get this -- even mixing the Gatorade for the Australian team. ...

I saw that the International Tennis Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place later this summer. I'm wondering what active players you think will get in when their careers come to a close?
—Janis Palmer, North Haven, Conn.

I think we may have done this before, but it's a fun question.* Again, these are active players (or Martina Hingis and Pete Sampras), and this assumes the voting would take place today. I'm betting that Clijsters, for instance, eventually gains the requisite credentials, but if she quit playing tomorrow, she wouldn't make it.

I saw those, too. Great mentions of Kim!!

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

I heard that on an interview done with Kim in a break during DC. The Aussie commentator said she must be the most expensive ball girl ever.

We will miss you Kim!.

Best of Luck in 2007 to: Kim & Bryan, Lleyton, Alicia, Todd, Sam, Chris, Casey, Wayne, Kirsten & all the other Aussies & injured players.

"Ca s’apprend par la souffrance, ça s’apprend par les déceptions, ça s’apprend par la densité du mal que ça te fait, plus ça te fait mal et plus ça te fait grandir. Y a des moments où tu te dis je ne vais pas le supporter, ça, ça fait trop mal, et pourtant tu passes au travers."
