cause she knows she can beat Lindsey, Its easy to be confident against someone who gives up easy. Justine, Serena, Venus wont give up easy and Kim knows she will have to work for it from the first point to the last and she can't handle the pressure.

People were saying that Jenn had to win this tournament.
Kim had better win tonight. She will never have this situation again, with her opponent playing a three hour marathon the night before.

:sad: It's really is frustrating to watch :sad: Why can't she play like she took it to Lindsay last night??
Pressure!

She's never won,
Justine has.

She's playing not to lose,
as if she has more to lose than to gain.

Why? - Simple: respect for Henin's game. Maybe too much respect.

What did you all expect?! This is Kim Clijsters we´re talking about!! Girl can´t win the biggies! Period! Kim can win only when her opponent are erring. No errors from Justine, no win for Kim.

Kim´s other major problem: The serve! No way should a big girl like Kim have such a weak serve! She should go for it more, instead of going for percentage.

Too much percentage play here. Serve is percentage, her whole game is percentage and just to play it safe.

Are you no.1 or what?!

Yes, Kim plays "to not lose" against the top players - in big situations - instead of playing to win. She gets tight, and she lets the occasion get to her.

Of course, it didn't help that the media and other tennis people keep criticizing her for not having won a major. If they would lay off her back, Kim would do better. If they would have laid off Anna's back, she would have won a title by now.

That's why I was :haha:
when Lindsay said Kim's serve was underrated!

Probably, but that´s part of being a top player. Look at what they did to Venus after Serena won!! What did she do?! She dig deep and then went on a tear! That´s Kim should do and should have done!
