Grass court season

16 06 2009

We are now right in the middle of my favorite part of the tennis season, on the grass courts. It’s way to short in my opinion, basically only 4 weeks, but always full of upsets, surprises and great matches. The grass court matches are shorter and thus a little more enjoyable to watch then slow baseline 5-set matches at Roland Garros.

This week a lot of players are in my country, the Netherlands, for the tournament in Rosmalen. As an exhibition match this Sunday Kim Clijsters(after Steffi Graf my all-time favorite) proved she is ready for her official comeback after defeating dutch Misa Krajicek in 2 easy sets 6-1 6-3. Kim played amazing and on her favorite hard courts this summer, she should be able to be a contender for titles again. Yes Misa is not at her best after injuries and the break-up with her dad but she is still a great player on grass, former quarter finalist at Wimbledon and yesterday
