Yahoo says this. Is it true??
you're absolutely right. Justine and Kim did hit quite a few milestones at similar times (making GS finals, getting into the top 10 etc.) but Kim had an overall slightly better 2001 and she took off like greased lightning after the US Open last year. It's funny how people forget how, before the Aussie Open, Kim was being described as 'the world's best player' and 'the chosen one' (funny, she hadn't won a grand slam then either ).disposablehero said:12 is a lot. The problem is this perception that Justine has been consisently outpacing Kim for a long time. That is simply false. At the beginning of this April, 4 and a half months ago, Justine's career was simply not close to Kim's by any measure. She has had a very strong 4 and a half months.
Hate to tell you, but 6+2+1+7=16, not 14.sonfo said:Kim's titles so far (14):
2001-Stanford, Leipzig, Luxembourg
2002-Hambug, Filderstadt, Luxembourg, Chase Ch.
2003-Sydney, Indian Wells, Rome, Hertogenbosch, Stanford, Los Angeles
For the past 20 weeks, yes. Before that, Justine could have played as much as she wanted, she wasn't going to match Kim. Kim will be back. Soon.shap_half said:On clay Justine enters 4 tournaments and wins 3 of them
Kim enters 3 and only wins 1
On hard Justine enters 4 tournaments and wins 3 of them
Kim enters 7(!!!!!!) and only wins 3 of them...
Justine clearly plays better when she does play. Kim just plays more.
