Me neither!!!! Sometimes I felt like seeing Martina Hingis out there (well I'm speaking only from the last say 7 games which I saw) returning the ball back right into the feet of Serena instead of making her run. It was the opposite despite a bothering blister it was Serena who made Kim run...

....darn to bad Kim. You really wasted a big big chance there.

Just hope she can get over it!! Please don't let this los affect your future. You're a fighter girl just didn't take your chances today. God knows why.

I don't think Kim threw away her chances. Serena played a lot better towards the end and Kim didn't, the double faults just showed the pressure she felt. Sure Kim choked a little bit, but Kim will learn a lot from this match afterall Kim is still only 19 years old. Once Kim feels ready to talk about this match whether it is to her coach, her Dad or Lleyton or whoever she will realise she let a great chance slip but will realise she has what it takes to beat Serena at a slam. Kim will learn a lot from this match which will for sure make her a bigger and better stronger player. I think Kim should be proud of her effort and take confidence away from her performance

Kim oh Kim
The biggest chocker since Hingis at the ausie final 2002
She knows how to find ways to lose.

much different !!!

you can't compare Kim to Hingis.
Hingis lost to heat and weather. you can see that match last year was damn hot !!!! and Hingis didn't throw out herself.

but today Kim got pressure on her and made some mistakes.
all are from herself !!

Hope this is a lesson for winning Serena in next Slam

Go Go KIMMMMM


c'mon !!! Tammy !!!!

I stayed up until 2:30 in the morning watching it.....just to be disappointed. My gawd, I thought she had it. Credit to Serena for pulling off some big shots, but Kim just sprayed so many shots at the end....I really think she choked at the end. Too bad for her...

I felt really sorry for her. The match was hers, but this is Serena we are talking about - the best in the world so she can hold her head up high.

Kim choked a little by making some double faults and some errors, but in the end Serena had to win it, and she stepped it up and cut down on her errors for those last games. I dont know why Kim should choke though because shes already been to a Slam final and already beaten Serena before. It was probably just a little lapse in concentration.

OH MY GOD! I am in the airport at Kuala Lumpur on the Internet and this is the first thing I hear about the result!
She lost but she was leading 5-1. Oh, oh, oh, oh...
I think I am glad that I did not see this match, I would have been sick...

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!

Cool

I stayed up and watched the match too. I thought it was over, but I think Kim really felt the pressure. She stopped playing her game. Why when you see that your opponent has a foot injury - you would not just run them from end to end? I know Kim did not see the HUGE blister on the bottom of her foot or the ones on her toes like we saw on TV, but you have to use every advantage.

Love and Bagels - What more could a sport offer!

I mean even Serena used to have leads and let them slip, before 2002, so I hope Kim will learn for this, I just hope she won't be too down about it.

Kim plays very good but at 5-1 Serena plays the best tennis she had.

yah I think this match was very different from Aus 2002.. DXP, I'd like to see you run when it is 46 celcius outside! Capriati had more "stamina" than Martina, supported the heat better, and never gave up, like Serena yesterday.. Kim, your time will come!!!!

still, we all saw what is a fighter yesterday..
