Clijsters Easy Against Camarin For 2nd Round
On Australian Open 2004 Kim dispatched the Italian without so much as a by-your-leave, and having taken just 24 minutes to steamroller through the first set 6-0, it looked every bit as though she would be force-feeding the world 125 a ‘double bagel’. This time she spared Camarin the ignominy, cruising through her opening round at Wimbledon 6-0, 6-3. It was, however, a loss of footing which spurred a momentary comeback in the second set. At 1-0 down, 30-30, Camarin slipped, did the splits, bumped her forehand back in to play, and to surprise of everyone (not least herself) won the point. It was the first time she had smiled all match. She raised her arms in mock celebration, and promptly won her first game. It had been some time coming. Clijsters had looked impressive at the Aegon International in Eastbourne last week, form she carried over, her powerful shots, skidding through inches from Camarin’s baseline troubling Italian from the outset. Taken to deuce in one of her service games was as bad as it got. brought up her first set point with a forehand return which whipped across court and found the corner, leaving Camarin raising her eyes skywards in understandable frustration. The set was over seconds later as Camarin squeezed a routine forehand a yard long. The second set was more competitive – but only just. Camarin stayed level until the seventh game. Clijsters broke, and then served out the match, winning her final service game to love. It was an emphatic performance. It is worth pointing out that Clijsters was similarly destructive at Eastbourne, swatting Yanina Wickmayer and Lucie Safarova – no mugs – until she came up against Victoria Azarenka in the quarter-finals, when her power was matched, like-for-like. Even so, she has returned in style.

Warning - No Vuvuzelas At Wimbledon Championships
London: Wimbledon has got the hump over the horn. The All England Tennis Club have banned fans from bringing vuvuzelas into their SW19 venue. The iconic plastic horns, the biggest stars of a disappointing World Cup so far, have been selling fast across Britain since last week's big kick-off. But a spokesperson for the All England club, whose flagship tournament begins on Monday, said: "The message is not to bring them. We have a list of prohibited items, including rattles and klaxons, and vuvuzelas will fall into that category."And tennis is not the only sport concerned by the ‘sound of the summer'.
Amazingly, there are fears that the horns could spoil England's Test series against Pakistan, whose notoriously boisterous supporters would surely relish the vuvuzelas.
However, now the England and Wales Cricket Board have said that each Test venue can decide its own policy about which items can be admitted. A spokesperson for the venue for the first Test between England and Pakistan, which is starting on 29 July, commented: "They're not on our banned list and we don't see them causing a problem ."
