Clijsters Finishes Her Professional Career With Her Head Hell High

One of the unwritten rules in tennis coverage is applause in press conferences is kept to an absolute minimum. For second round losers at the U.S. Open it’s unheard of but Kim Clijsters is very much an exception to most rules, and she received applause from an appreciative media audience.

And after losing out 7-6, 7-6 to Britain’s highly impressive 89th ranked Laura Robson, there was not any glimpse of any second thoughts. “This completely feels like the perfect place to retire,” Clijsters admitted on the post-match on court interview. “I just wish it wasn’t today.”

 

Clijsters Reflects On 'Rollercoaster' Career

Kim Clijsters heads into retirement after losing her second-round singles match to Laura Robson. Afterwards, Clijsters looked back at her career achievements, which include four Grand Slam singles titles and being World No. 1.

"I think my first [WTA Tour] Championships that I won were very special," she said. "Every victory has a special meaning because there's like a personal story behind each one of them."

 

Wozniacki Loses At US Open And Drops Out Of Top 10

Former world no.1 Caroline Wozniacki is set to drop out of the WTA’s top ten after suffering a second successive first round exit at a Grand Slam event. Questions are now being asked about the 21 year-old Dane’s sustained fitness and commitment after a painful exit against 96th ranked Irina-Camelia Begu.

 

Hingis Added To Lineup For WTT Finals

Martina Hingis, the 2012 WTT Female MVP, has been added to the lineup of tennis stars for the WTT Finals Weekend Sept. 14-16, at the Family Circle Tennis Center in Charleston, S.C.
