sunday survey: kim's ascent

It’s been a while: Click the image to watch Clijsters talk about regaining the tour’s top spot. (Screengrab/ WTA video)

While Kim Clijsters lost in straight sets on Sunday to Petra Kvitova in Paris, she still came out of the week as the WTA‘s new world no. 1, displacing Caroline Wozniacki. Clijsters was last no. 1 in March of 2006, a mere 256 weeks ago. So what do you think of Kim re-taking the top spot? Or perhaps the better question: When will Kvitova be no. 1?!

sunday survey: aussie farewell

There are probably too many to choose from, so we’ll let you guys decide: Which was the moment you’ll remember from this year’s Australian Open the most? There was plenty to talk about over the two weeks of the tourney, including a wacky week one. Did Rafa’s exit surprise you? Or how about the way Roger and Murray went down to eventual-champ Djokovic in straights? Li Na made it a step closer to a slam title, but Clijsters was there with her agility and power. Can anyone stop her?

More afterthoughts to come this week… but for now, we’ll leave it up to you.
