Kim Clijsters and the road to the Aussie title


So, I missed making my women's predictions for the Australian Open before the whole shebang kicked off. I don't want to go back in do it now, with players already making their way into the third round. But I will give my semifinal picks, and scout's honor, I was thinking this before things started: pinky swear!

Semifinals
Svetlana Kuznetsova vs. Venus Williams, Kim Clijsters vs. Sam Stosur

Finals
Clijsters over Williams

I just think Kim Clijsters is currently the best hard-court player out there, which she demonstrated by winning most of the big events on the tough stuff last year. I hope I don't jinx her with this late prediction, though!

Hey Van... it's been a while... hope you're doing great!!

I don't see anyone other than Kim either winning this Aussie Open title.

Did you see her interview with Woodbridge??! Awesome stuff haha... Am loving her fun bubbly character more than ever!
