First. The dress she wore in the OZ semis. Can we get Serena, Jenn and Martina in the same style dress? Possibly Serena's in white? Thank you.

Second. Kim is a big girl. 68 kg. grrrreat legs. Almost Serena-esque. Super-athlete. Why doesn't she get more pub?

Third. What was that? Tennis. Ah yes.

Why is she so defensive? Against Jenn she was sitting back and basically daring Jenn to try to pass her. Yes, Kim is so athletic she reaches almost everything. But often a slice lob goes back, which is just another chance for a winner for the opponent. She uses relatively little hip rotation. But she uses so much arm and shoulder in her swings, her stroke is REALLY long. So she almost can't hit big on the run.

If a Venus or a Monica gets control of a point, Kim can't take control back. She has to wait for them to give her a short ball or something. I think she could be vastly more aggressive. And which her agility and co-ordination, she could be the best half-volley-er on the tour.


What y'all think?

Amongst the things already mentioned it's also her father who does a terrific job keeping the media away. It's very, very difficult for a journalist to get an interview with Kim. And she likes to keep low profile herself.

I don't agree on the hitting balls on the run part. I've never seen her having problems doing this, but she rather takes the more safer option and brings the ball back as deep as possibles in the court, forcing her opponent to hit another ball.
And you should look at Kim now, the curls are out of her hair!!! Looks really good :)
Nope, I don't have a picture, she was on tv, she looked like her sister Elke :)
When was this foto taken??? Shame there's text just over her hair.

btw. Welcome aboard girl_tennis:wavey:
