Kim Clijsters comes back with amazing second act to win US Open

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Congratulations to Kim Clijsters for emphatically defending her US Open title last night with a 6-2, 6-1 defeat of Vera Zvonareva.

Kim, a former number one player now ranked third, had retired from tennis in early 2007. She got married, had a baby and after recovering from a series of nagging injuries, decided to give the pro tour another try.

What an amazing second act!

“It’s always an honor to go back to a place, especially a Grand Slam, where you’ve done well and you’ve won, and you want to bring your best tennis again,” Clijsters said after the match. “I know if I bring my best, I’m capable of beating the best players.”By becoming a three-time champion at the US Open, Clijsters tied Serena Williams for sixth on the all-time list. The only women to have won more US Opens are Chris Evert (6), Steffi Graf and Margaret Court (5), Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova (4).

Evert and Navratilova, who faced-off four times at the US Open, were on hand for the pre-match ceremony.
