Hmmm....does this say something: the last FOUR opens have been won by a Williams! On hardcourts it´s just hard for people to beat them, specially Kim. ´Cause there´s nothing Kim that the sisters don´t do better. The only way is that Serena and Venus are on the same half and tire each other out. Otherwise......wait till next year for slam no.1 for Kimmie girl!
i don't think so. the us open seems to be really dominated by the americans. however seles won't be there (will she?) so that opens up a spot but there will still be venus, serena, lindsay and jen. something else that concerns me is that match kim had with kuznetsova last year at the us open.
Her time has definitely come and she is clearly a superior player than the WS. An overloaded schedule and a weak coach stands in the way of that GS win this year though.
The press will be all over her and she will win the Australian Open 2004 thanks to some focus.
My prediction :
- She grabs that #1 spot and looses the final against Serena Williams.
- Kim Clijsters wins the Australian Open 2004.
