KIm Clijsters to Come out of Retirement, Plans to Play in the US Open

KimClijsters1 by Mercurier.Clijsters, who was formerly ranked number one in the world, retired in 2007 to get married and start a family. She plans to play in Cincinnati, Toronto, and the US Open.

On Thursday, Clijsters said that “I still have that craving. I look forward to the challenge. I want to be back at my peak as soon as possible, but I know that is not logical to ask that. I will have to take it match by match.”

Clijsters will play in a series of exhibition matches, along with Steffi Graf, Andre Agassi, and Tim Henman, at Wimbledon in May under the new retractable roof on Centre Court.
