I was actually kind of glad that Kim lost. She's played WAY TOO MUCH tennis this summer and with the USO so close, she needs rest!! She's been dominating so much, it's nice to see Lina win...and also for Kim to get some much needed rest. Better that she runs out of batteries against a talented player in Toronto than running out of batteries in R2 in Flushing Meadows!!! :eek: :eek:

I agree VS1, it definitely was a good thing she lost early, but if her entourage agreed with us, why did she play? that's my point
I think that Kim takes her commitments seriously. She had committed to play there and she honoured it. I am not saying that she tanked and lost on purpose. Of course not. But she probably wasn't as motivated...and having secured the #1 ranking and having the US Open approaching...she was probably also a little relieved that she now had a few extra days to rest. So I think that it affected her motivation. But she showed up because she SAID she was going to show up. And with all of the seeds withdrawing because of injuries, she probably also felt a bit more obligation from the tournament. They couldn't afford ANOTHER contender pulling out. For crying out loud, this is a Tier I event!!!
