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?

I don't agree with Saki's #3 point... saying Kim "isn't as pretty as..." That really depends on the person. I mean you say she's not as pretty as Serena, venus, Marti, Jelena or Anna, well, I have to say that out of those 5 the only one I find pretty is Anna, and I for sure think Kim is prettiers than the other 4... but it's my taste, so that's really a subjective thing.

But anyway, I think Kim likes to keep out of the media, and it is probably good for her game, because she can focus on her tennis. But she does get a bit of media in Australia from being Lleyton's girlfriend (which really annoys me, because she should get recognised for her tennis, not being Lleyton's girl!).

Of course beauty is subjective, but I would still say that Kim isn't striking enough physically to get attention because of her looks. She is pretty, just not striking.
Yes, which is again subjective - that was my point! :D I wouldn't call Venus or Marti "striking" either... :) So it's hard to debate a topic like that because maybe some journalists/photographers do think Kim is striking or pretty, we'll never know!
