Clijsters to make WTA comeback

FORMER world No. 1 Kim Clijsters will come out of retirement to play on the tour during the US hardcourt season later this year.

"I have missed playing tournaments most. I am doing it for the challenge. I have been training for 11 or 12 weeks. Training harder than ever before. Then this drive came back," Clijsters told a news conference at her home town of Bree, Belgium, yesterday. The 25-year-old retired in May 2007 before marrying basketball player Brian Lynch and giving birth to a daughter. "I have asked for wildcards for Cincinnati, Toronto and US Open, that's all for the moment. I want to see if I can still do it," the 2005 US Open champion said yesterday.
