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?

The reason why she doesn`t get the publicity she deserves is simple, she doesn`t have the right nationality, Didn`t te americans call her boring and without personality?:fiery:
She couldn`t go for full at the australian open because of her arm and still she reached the semis, so that shows how amazing she is:D
and her outfit, well to be fair, I wasn`t that fond of it
The skirt was nice but the red top(same as Amelie is wearing) isn`t realy my peace of cake, that doesn`t mean I will root less for her though :cool: ;) :cool:
But is Justine such an interview giver then? I can`t imagine that, she doesn`t look like a girl who does have a need to sell herself either, or do they complain about her too? just wondering :)
