Kim Clijsters certainly fooled me

I guess "my entire body is wrecked" and "never never never" don't have the same meanings I thought they did. When Kim Clijsters retired, she said her body was badly banged up and it took a long time for her to get going in the morning, she had to do so many exercises to do to get it to work properly and to be relatively pain-free. She also said she absolutely would not change her mind about retiring.

However, Clijsters appears to be on the verge of formally requesting a wild card for the 2009 U.S. Open. She is also expected to request wild cards for Cincinnati and Toronto.

She said "never said never". Not "never never never". Check your facts

Oh, please. I wasn't being literal. With immense connotation--and often literally, too--she said never never never.

She had me completely fooled too, Diane. She seemed so focussed on her impending marriage and having a family that I never ever thought she'd be back. She never seemed to me to be extra competitive; that she played because she enjoyed it, so I'm doubly surprised that she's back on the tour. It will be quite interesting to see how she does. I wish her the best.

I wish her the best, too. Kim is such a great player, and should have won more than one major. Having her back is certainly good for the tour.
