Last week Kim was nr 1 in doubles for the first time. This week she lost her 1st place again but got to the nr 1 in singles and next week it will be her 1st week as nr 1 in both singles and doubles :D

She will regain the top spot because Ai was defending final points here, but didn't enter the tournament and Poala/Vivi lost today as defending champions against Dokic/Morariu

Besides she's only the 5th player in the world to be nr 1 in both singles and doubles. She’s joined Navratilova, Sanchez, Hingis and Davenport…


Kim also won her 2nd round match today against Schiavone. Although I didn’t mind an early exit for Kim at this tournament, it looks like her serve was really on fire today. She had a first serve percentage of 77% and only lost 3 of 35 serve points. She also fired 9 aces and didn’t lost a single point on serve in the 2nd set. The match was over in 47 minutes (6-1, 6-2)

Congrats Kimmy :D Please keep shining !!!! :bounce:

Hey Great job Kim! :yeah: You guys are right about her serve! It was incredible! The poor Francesca just couldn't do anything! And it's not because she's a bad player. Not at all! Kim was just too good for anyone tonight

Great job for Kim! It's not easy to be at the top in both areas. :D

I wonder if her father will now think this "double #1" will equal 20 slam titles!! :lol: :lol:
