Kim Clijsters to quit after the US Open
Kim Clijsters announced that she will retire after the US Open in a news conference at the headquarters of her sponsors Galaxo in Paal, Belgium.
The Belgian said she felt Flushing Meadows, which is only 45 minutes from her house in the States, was a fitting place to end her career.
Clijsters, who is married to NBA basketball player Brian Lynch, initially retired in 2007 before the birth of her daughter Jada. But she returned in 2009 and went on to win the US Open that year.
