Nice words from Kim

When I read things like this it only confirms my opinion that Kim is a very bright and gracious young woman.

This is from an article in the LA Times

With her success in 2003, it's easy to forget that Clijsters struggled last year. She lost in the third round of the French Open, the second at Wimbledon and the fourth at the U.S. Open. Additionally, she suffered from a serious arm injury and went through a coaching change.

During this time, she said she got advice from legends Martina Navratilova, Pam Shriver and John McEnroe.

Mac apparently was the motivator.

"He was just saying I'm a good enough player and capable of doing it and that I was still young," Clijsters said. "Little things that fire you up and get you motivated. For a while there, it was hard."

She gave all three of them credit.

"That's been another part where I've learned a lot even when I was not playing my best tennis," Clijsters said. "Without those things and without those things the people said, I probably wouldn't have been in the position I am right now."

Very interesting!! It's good to she seeks out the veterans like that...I hope she has consulted Martina about [Kim's] problem closing out big matches!

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

nice to know that I knew Pam Shriver was a huge Kim fan, and knew Mac had spoke to her at US Open last year, but also nice to know Navratilova spoke to her
