Nothing difficult here. Though I like Kim, but it would be too much.
Not really. Some women's matches are way better than some men's ones, in the same way some men's matches are better than some women's ones.

Plus, Clijsters has been a overall better player. And her tennis is and was more entertaining than a servebot's one.

I'll miss both players but I'll miss Kim more, I think she could've still win even slams.

I still remember time when WTA was worth watching, but that days are gone. I will better watch match between any two ATP TOP-50 players then Azarenka - Kerber for example.

Kim is more accomplished player for sure. But in 2005 when both were on top of their game I liked to watch Andy more than Kim.

Gasquet is next №1

Have you watched Li-Robson a few days ago? Very high quality.
Everytime I have to maxe an example, I love to quote Schiavone-Kuznetsova at AO 2011. Fabolous match, better than 90 % of men's matches of that year.
But as a WTA fan I must admit some matches are very lethal to the eyes. An out-of-shape Kvitova or Stosur or Radwanska are very bad for the image of the tour.

Re: Who will you miss more: Andy Roddick or Kim Clijsters?

i will miss both but i'll definately miss kim more. She was a great embassador of the sport and a great person

and i dont get what listing their career accomplishment has to do with anything, why does that affect who you will miss more?

Definately Roddick. I don't follow womens tennis too much, though Kim is one of the players I like on the WTA so I'm sad to see her go.

Yes, that was great play from Robson. She played against Kim quality too, I was watching all the match. But it`s like exception from rule. In ATP every second or third match is worth watching (more or less). In WTA - one of ten can be intresting, IMO. And if you want to chose the best WTA match from the last years it would be Madrid-07 final. Schiavone-Kuznetsova at AO 2011 was cool too of course, but not even close.

And actually I like Agnieshka. She is my favourite current player in WTA.

Re: Who will you miss more: Andy Roddick or Kim Clijsters?

I like Kim but she's never seem committed fully to tennis when she came out of retirement to win 3 slams. She's like a part- time tennis player whereas Roddick has always been around, slams or masters, or smaller tournies.

Neither. Kim and Roddick will both be forgotten as nobodies.

Both. They are box office, and outside the top four/Williams brothers we don't have enough of that in tennis.

kim has said she was disappointed this year in how little she was able to play. She did plan on a full schedule this year but injuries really hampered her
