The match is scheduled third on Pat Rafter arena, sometime around 1.30pm, local time.
Kim could face Ana IVANOVIC in the next round, then Samantha STOSUR, Serena WILLIAMS and PETKOVIC/JANKOVIC/SCHIAVONE.
Kim's draw is not exactly what you could call 'easy', but if she manages to win a few matches, it should be some ideal preparation going into the Australian Open...

Last but definitely not least, let me wish you a very happy New Year! May 2012 bring you joy, happiness, a lot of love and success, and naturally... many great tennis memories!
