Kim Time? 01/05/2010 - 1:54 PM

95583687 by Pete Bodo

I've been thinking about Kim Clijsters a fair amount these past few days; I think she's going to have a big -- a very big -- 2010. So she's my choice as the most likely player of the year on the women's side; later this week, I'll also choose a potential male PoY for 2010.

My feelings about Clijsters didn't really crystallize until I read and thought about the return of Justine Henin. Yes, these two Belgians are joined at the metaphorical hip, and have been for a long time. And one reason I think Clijsters will do well is because 2010 represents a great opportunity for her finally to escape from Henin's shadow. I'm sure she wouldn't mind at all if she also puts Henin into her own. Payback. It's an itch.

The Clijsters saga, despite all those elements that could be stitched onto a sampler pillow, seems so artfully constructed that Kim or her advisers couldn't possibly have dreamed it up. In 2007, when she "retired" (it's a prettier word than "quit"), she had one Grand Slam title to her credit, and a long history as a talented but woefully choke-prone competitor. She was 1-5 in major finals, and 12-10 against her nemesis, the dynamo Henin. But keep in mind that from 2001 to 2003, Clijsters dominated Henin, including in some major events; from 2003 on, the tables were dramatically turned. The turning point came in Berlin, in 2003, where Henin squeaked out a win, 7-5 in the third. A few weeks later, the Sister of No Mercy surrendered just four games to Clijsters in a brutal Roland Garros final, winning 6-0, 6-4. That opened the floodgates: from that point on, Henin was 8-3 (4-0 in major finals) against Clijsters.

Clijsters also suffered at the hands of Venus Williams, although a few wins late in their rivalry helped Clijsters build the H2H to a respectable 5-6. Champagne Kimmy was less successful against Venus's sister, Serena, who was 7-1 (and 2-0 in majors) against Clijsters at the time the latter took her break from tennis. Clijsters did manage to wave good-bye with a positive H2H against Maria Sharapova, 4-3, although she was 1-1 against Maria in Grand Slam semis. Clijsters was a narrow 8-7 with Amelie Mauresmo, but hey - she owned that other Grand Slam champ, Svetlana Kuznetsova (7-1)! Didn't everyone?

Given all this, you might be inclined to think that Clijsters was totally bummed out when she heard that Justine Henin was following her out of seclusion, but the operative word there is "following." Henin is the one doing the following now, which is a 180-degree shift, and symbolic in a larger sense of where the two women stand in relation to each other. Given the way Clijsters stole the summer headlines in '09, the message seems clear: Clijsters has re-invented herself (that cute little kid of Clijsters is, among other things, a convenient distraction, although Clijsters certainly doesn't see it that way). The problem for Henin is that there was nothing to re-invent; she just faces the challenge of getting back to what she once was. She's burning a different form of emotional fuel.

The other day, in my post at ESPN, I went into the reasons that Henin might have a tougher row to hoe in her comeback than did Clijsters. I wrote that because her game is rooted in finesse and versatility, it may take her a long time to find her timing and turn her on-court decision-making into an instinctive reaction. But there's a little more to it than that. When I compared Clijsters to a four-wheel drive pick-up truck and Henin to a Ferrari, I was also thinking about where the game is, in general, and what it takes to win - on both tours.

Men's tennis has become, over recent years, a much more physical game. Pure power no longer reaps enormous benefits in the form of aces or winners the way it once did; it now pays off in long-haul stamina. Not just the ability to run for a long time, but the ability to maintain racket-head speed, quick-start muscle reactions, consistency of stroke. The relatively new polyester strings have played a part in this evolution; the harder you swing now, the more confident you can feel that the shot will go in. This has had a huge impact on the game (although we've seen that mostly in the men's game - so far).

A racket isn't a very heavy object, but when you have to swing it accurately, with something like full force, for two-and-a-half hours or longer, it can feel like an anvil. This will be an increasingly big factor in the women's game, too - just as serving power and efficiency is a new frontier that the women are finally beginning to explore.

Clijsters is well-positioned to take advantage of these developments, because she's an exceptionally physical athlete. A few weeks ago, Caroline Wozniacki told me (she was talking about her U.S. Open final against Clijsters): "That was the first time I’ve played her. She’s hitting a heavy ball. Every time you play short, she takes another step forward and wants to be the first to attack. She’s a good runner, too, and a fighter. I wouldn’t call it a different level from the other girls, but she was fresh and relaxed. She’s accomplished all she wanted already, so she’s just playing for herself and her family. I could feel she was relaxed and enjoying the game."

With all due respect to Caroline, I'm thinking it might be a different level.

We all love to watch tennis matches, and sometimes we get in too wrapped up in the details of the game - how someone hit the ball on a certain day against a certain opponent. We can learn a lot from that, but there's a forest-and-trees element at play, because so much of what happens in any specific match is determined by form of the day. We get a better understanding of the game if we look at how a player's fundamental profile fits into the gestalt. To me, the game is becoming more and more physical, and Wozniacki's experience puts into perspective the threat Clijsters represents to her peers and rivals.

If you want to read a counter-point, check out the piece Tom Tebbutt wrote for ESPN on this subject. Tom is a tennis aesthete who worships at the altar of Federer, irretrievably in love with "beautiful" tennis. And with Henin back and Roger Federer in command of the men's game until someone says otherwise, fans of pretty tennis are experiencing glory days. I'm not sure how much longer that will be sustainable, though. Last year's men's U.S. Open final was telling to me, in that it represented the first time that someone other than Rafael Nadal was able to play the game on his own terms on a big stage and get the best of Federer. Against Juan Martin del Potro in that final, Federer took his familiar position: Play any way you want; I'll still find a way to beat you. Del Potro responded with: Okay, its power tennis, with the emphasis on physicality.

In that match, Federer was banking on his formidable abilities to transition from defense to offense - to absorb del Potro's most punishing blows and use them roughly the way wise Yoda used The Force in Star Wars. Yoda, of course, was much older than Federer (Yoda was 900-plus years when he died; that's older than Jonas Bjorkman!) and his complexion was considerably greener than that of the olive-skinned Swiss. But in the end, Federer was unable to turn del Potro's power against him, and he spent most of the match futilely chasing rockets. Even when he did catch up with them, they were too hot to handle and fire back.

For different reasons, Clijsters took a similar, Federer-esque attitude into her U.S. Open semifinal with Serena Williams, but she came away with a different result (the match was close enough before the bizarre ending to draw that conclusion, no matter what might have happened at the end in a more conventional scenario). And she was one of the very few women who managed to resist Serena's shoving and pressing and athletic bullying.

95509212 The first time around, Clijsters suffered some injuries that hampered her effectiveness and probably contributed to her disappointing results in the late stages at some big events. But her game, specifically her physical attributes and abilities, were never in question. Like the lion in the Wizard of Oz, the thing she most needed was a heart. Other players, including Pete Sampras and Martina Navratilova, have faced and conquered a similar shortcoming. There's no reason Clijsters can't do it as well. If she's managed to banish her demons and her smoldering resentment of the way Henin once stole her thunder, she's positioned to flourish.

Now that the Williams sisters are nearing the finish line of their careers and appear to be in some stage of physical decline, Clijsters moves up is an ideal specimen for an increasingly physical game.

Hello all! Happy to be thinking about tennis again. I caught a couple Masters Cup matches, but other than that this is the first time since the USO.

Haven't seen a Roddick match yet (it's too early and I've been sick) but I'm going to try and watch him play against Gasquet - I can't believe it's the first time they'll have played since the Wimbledon '07 fiasco. Ugh. Still makes me sick thinking about it.

Be out for revenge, Andy. Be out for BLOOD.

Posted by Tfactor 01/06/2010 at 10:19 AM

Hi Jan,
Sorry for the delayed response. I was on the phone with Ruth :)
Still I was keeping an eye on the scoreboard. Happy to see it was another quick win for Fed.

Posted by greenhopper 01/06/2010 at 10:19 AM

ah, thanks, sokol.
I saw links for Hong Kong before the event had begun, but now they're all gone. le bummerific.

Posted by Flyer 01/06/2010 at 10:19 AM

Well - the very best to Roger for the rest of the tournament - won't be able to watch live tomorrow - have a long meeting to attend.

Hope his form continues to "round" nicely.

Yep - nice roundy bouncy Fed - tap dancing feather lite on the court!

Hmm - really need to eat something - me brain too fluffy feathery it seems.......

Hi Tfactor. Missed saying hi to you.

Mo the chair ump.

VERY shabby match over in Chennai between SDV and Tipsy. 4 games, 4 service breaks.

Posted by sokol 01/06/2010 at 10:24 AM

Kafelnikov looks pretty happy in the picture, that picture probably was taken before the end of the match :-)

Black Matt hi,I watched Andys match yesterday with Carsten Ball,well after his time out with his knee injury he seems to playing well.His movement around the court was good in his match and the serve was working too.

Posted by Flyer 01/06/2010 at 10:27 AM

This also working very well:

Caroline,
At your earliest convience, could you please find it on Roger's racuqet from RF.com?

Posted by Aussiemarg,Madame President,Summer in Oz Tennis 01/06/2010 at 10:39 AM

Good return Rafa from your f/hand wing

Rafa breaks

Posted by greenhopper 01/06/2010 at 10:40 AM

Defense baby!

Posted by sokol 01/06/2010 at 10:42 AM

Davai, Kolya! How about another bagel?

Come on, Tipsy! Take the set!

Posted by rafadoc 01/06/2010 at 10:43 AM

Nice love hold there. Keep this level, kay?

Posted by sokol 01/06/2010 at 10:44 AM

Janko with the set. Come on!

Posted by sokol 01/06/2010 at 10:45 AM

Vamos, Rafa!

Posted by observer 01/06/2010 at 10:45 AM

Glad to see Federer and Sharapova won, though I don't know much about the Hong Kong exo or its format.

Also glad to see Cornet won... she definitely had the most disappointing year to me on the WTA, and would like to see her improve in '10.

Posted by rafadoc 01/06/2010 at 10:45 AM

Chritoph Rochus watching the match.

Was it in Doha last year that Rafa was watching Fed with Mirka?

Starace holds.

Posted by mina (meanie and proud of it) 01/06/2010 at 10:47 AM

kinda think Cornet was broken by that Dina match at the AO, having held MPs and then losing the match in that extremely dramatic fashion... i hope she has a decent 2010 as well

Posted by TennisFan 01/06/2010 at 10:48 AM

The return of the Belgians is a huge boost for the WTA. I have not watched too many women's matches after Justine and Kim retired. The post-Belgium WTA was full of big grunters and big hitters who were overpaid by the sponsors... Justine is the Roger Federer on women's side and Kim is the Nadal in WTA. They are both good, quiet, classy and play beautiful games. 2010 will be a fantastic year for both the WTA and the ATP. The tennis fans will be the virtual winners.

Posted by rafadoc 01/06/2010 at 10:48 AM

Rafa hitting some pretty fast forehands. Woo.

Posted by mina (meanie and proud of it) 01/06/2010 at 10:50 AM

yeah Rafadoc, he's serving well and is playing agressive

Posted by rafadoc 01/06/2010 at 10:53 AM

Hi Mina! Yep, so far so good...

Posted by Aussiemarg,Madame President,Summer in Oz Tennis 01/06/2010 at 10:53 AM

Rafa you should have challenged again,that ball was out,shown on Hawk Eye

Posted by Aussiemarg,Madame President,Summer in Oz Tennis 01/06/2010 at 10:55 AM

Good volley by Starace there

Rafa your f/hand wing is still Opened??

Posted by rafadoc 01/06/2010 at 10:56 AM

Nice drop volley for Starace to win that game. Rafa still up a break.

Posted by Aussiemarg,Madame President,Summer in Oz Tennis 01/06/2010 at 10:59 AM

Plenty of time there Rafa,easy shot missed

Posted by greenhopper 01/06/2010 at 10:59 AM

Based just on his play so far, I feel Rafa played better yesterday.

Figures he'd pull a hook backhand passer just as I type that.

Posted by rafadoc 01/06/2010 at 10:59 AM

Really crappy passer followed by a brilliant one. 30-30

Posted by Caroline 01/06/2010 at 11:00 AM

MA, I think it is buried deep in one of the match threads, but if you look on the Tennis Warehouse site there is a full spec and description for the BLX. I'm sorry that I'm so technically useless that I can't post this as a link, but here is the site address. http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Wilson_BLX_SixOne_Tour/descpageRCWILSON-61TBLX.html

As far as I know no-one has asked Roger directly about it yet.

Posted by Caroline 01/06/2010 at 11:01 AM

TW is so clever now it posts the link automatically!! Thank you, TW. I could have hidden my ignorance.

Posted by rafadoc 01/06/2010 at 11:04 AM

Hmmm. Not great volleys there but sneaks a break. 5-2.

Posted by Aussiemarg,Madame President,Summer in Oz Tennis 01/06/2010 at 11:04 AM

Goodness me Rafa put the volley Away

Rafa breaks again,double break

5-2

Rafa breaks again for 5-2.

Posted by greenhopper 01/06/2010 at 11:05 AM

Why is he making all these faces? Unhappy with his play? Calls? Something physical? :(

'morning twibe.

how's rafa playing today? I think his new strings are a good thing, no?

Posted by mina (meanie and proud of it) 01/06/2010 at 11:05 AM

commie dude, get yer facts straight. Elf won't be in Auckland, it's Kooyong. pfffttt

Posted by Aussiemarg,Madame President,Summer in Oz Tennis 01/06/2010 at 11:06 AM

Rafa,Starace isnt a good mover

direct the volley behind

Posted by Aussiemarg,Madame President,Summer in Oz Tennis 01/06/2010 at 11:09 AM

Too short Rafa,your f/hand side again shown up

Starace with a easy volley

Posted by Flyer 01/06/2010 at 11:10 AM

Trying to get on this thread - and update it - is getting mighty irritatin'!

I wind up having to go to the "Podcast" page - scroll down to the bottom for the blogs - then finally click my way back here to get the page to refresh.

If I don't go thru all that - all I get is a blank page when I refresh.

Not worth all the effort.

Hope when the AO begins this has been corrected - will make it impossible to catch or participate in match calls in any meaningful way.

Nadal sailing along - and much quicker today!

Posted by Aussiemarg,Madame President,Summer in Oz Tennis 01/06/2010 at 11:11 AM

Rafa 6-2 1st set

Posted by rafadoc 01/06/2010 at 11:13 AM

GH: I don't know. Looks like grumpy Rafa today.

I love it when Rafa watches the highlights. lol.

Hi Annie!

2 easy points missed Rafa

Starace holds 1st game,2nd set

Lynne -

Ummm - what do you mean you deleted TW and re-installed?

Posted by Annie (Vamos Heavenly Creature) 01/06/2010 at 11:19 AM

GH and rafadoc (hi mina): I've noticed that rafa is more expressive on court since his return. hmmm, therapy maybe. I'm enjoying his bright colors for the time being while dreading the addition of the frank costanza shorts.

hi Annie. i'm hoping he's ditched the brown checked monstrosity, cos they're supposed to go with this popsicle shirt...

Posted by Aussiemarg,Madame President,Summer in Oz Tennis 01/06/2010 at 11:22 AM

rafa holds

1 game all,

Posted by Lynne (Rafalite) 01/06/2010 at 11:23 AM

I am sooo not keen on Rafa's shirt.

Posted by rafadoc 01/06/2010 at 11:23 AM

I love this kit. He should keep the white shorts. Just say no to the brown. We will see though...

Posted by Aussiemarg,Madame President,Summer in Oz Tennis 01/06/2010 at 11:25 AM

hell Rafa,that should have been a easy return,2nd serve as well.Pfft.

Posted by Aussiemarg,Madame President,Summer in Oz Tennis 01/06/2010 at 11:27 AM

Starace 2-1

Posted by Tfactor 01/06/2010 at 11:27 AM

He should keep the white shorts"

Amen!!!

Home for lunch and able to watch.
Reading back the comments it appear he's being more expressive than usual? hope everything is Ok in Rafaland though.

Posted by Flyer 01/06/2010 at 11:27 AM

Lynne - ahh - don't have it as a favorite though - so guess I'll still have the problems.

Don't think it's the proposed color of Nadal's shorts for the AO that's the problem - it's the pattern that may be on them that will make the eyes cross.

Posted by SimonSays 01/06/2010 at 11:28 AM

Since Henin retired ive only watched 3 WTA matches. That says alot.
Henin has the best backhand from both men and women

I guess it's a good thing the shirt is colorful cause had it been darker with that white collar he'd look like a priest

Posted by rafadoc 01/06/2010 at 11:41 AM

That was pretty. Nice point set up and volley

Posted by Annie (Vamos Heavenly Creature) 01/06/2010 at 11:42 AM

Lovely volley there. nice to see rafa going to net so often.

Posted by rafadoc 01/06/2010 at 11:43 AM

And there is the second break. Rafa will serve for the match.

The Fiz has kind of woken up

Posted by rafadoc 01/06/2010 at 11:44 AM

I have never seen Rafa hold his head like that. Headache? And now he is talking to himself, not nicely either.

Posted by Annie (Vamos Heavenly Creature) 01/06/2010 at 11:44 AM

okay, he's bumming about something. last changeover he was making faces at this team and now he's got his head in his hands. hope it's just a tweak or something.

Posted by Aussiemarg,Madame President,Summer in Oz Tennis 01/06/2010 at 11:45 AM

Rafa serves for the match

5-2

Posted by greenhopper 01/06/2010 at 11:46 AM

I liked the pace on that last rally for 40-0. Almost practice court stuff.

Posted by Aussiemarg,Madame President,Summer in Oz Tennis 01/06/2010 at 11:47 AM

Nadal d Starace 6-2,6-2.

Posted by Tfactor 01/06/2010 at 11:47 AM

Rafadoc, Annie,
I was wondering too. Didn't look good or like his usual self to me

Posted by greenhopper 01/06/2010 at 11:47 AM

Goodall thinks Rafa is striking the much better now than during the same stage last year. Can I have some of that?

Posted by Aussiemarg,Madame President,Summer in Oz Tennis 01/06/2010 at 11:48 AM

GH have you his match stats at all pls

Posted by mina (meanie and proud of it) 01/06/2010 at 11:49 AM
