She did ok versus Venus, but Serena dominated her. Opposite of Henin,
who did ok versus Serena but got dominated versus Venus. However, in
all cases the winning record belonged to a Williams sister. The
closest to parity was Henin versus Serena which was 7-6 in Serena's
favour, I believe.

So my answer was pretty good to the question "did Clijsters ever
actually beat a Williams??". She beat a Williams 5 times.

She beat them both when winning YEC 2002. She beat Venus when winning
USO 2005, and also just before that in Stanford. Some of the losses to
Serena were very close, like AO 2003 when she was up 5-2 in the 3rd
set. Also a very close match at USO 1999, when Kim was 16. She hasn't
played against Serena at all after Miami 2003, i.e. not once since she
turned 20. Didn't realize that until now.

My rating of her as Jankovic Mark 1 doesn't alter then :)
