While Kim's second career has bolstered her overall legacy will she be remembered as just a hard court specialist. Or is she in fact just a hard court specialist.

It seems increasingly unlikely she will ever win the French Open or Wimbledon as she continues to turn in increasingly abysmal performances on those surfaces even taking into account the layoff/injuries, etc...She used to be a good clay courter and should have won that 2001 French over Capriati. However she hasnt done much on clay since 2003, apart from one decent French Open in 2006. And on grass she never seemed a major title threat.

Some people give Venus and Henin heat for specializing more on grass (Venus) and clay (Henin) respectively but both have stellar careers on hard courts too. And Venus actually has some excellent performances on clay and Henin on grass too.
