World No. 2 Kim Clijsters has withdrawn from Wimbledon citing a foot injury. The former No. 1 injured her ankle in a freak wedding accident in April. Since then, the former No. 1 has only played two tournaments losing in the first round at the French Open and yesterday in Rosmalen.

“Iโ€™m very very disappointed to have to withdraw from Wimbledon after injuring my foot again at the tournament in โ€˜S Hertogenbosch,” Clijsters said in a statement released by Wimbledon. “At this moment I feel frustrated that it has to happen now before one of my favourite tournaments. Iโ€™ve always enjoyed being a part of the Wimbledon atmosphere but I have no other choice now but to rest, recover and to not play tennis for a few weeks.”

Also pulling out was Sam Querrey and Benjamin Becker who both withdrew with elbow injuries.

Yes, it looks like Serena is currently seeded 7 after the withdrawal of second-seeded Kim Clijsters http://news.sveyo.com/924/serena-williams-seeded-no-7-at-wimbledon but I don’t think she’s going to reach further than the quarter finals, we’ll see about that

Brando Says:

Hi. Wimbledon seeds announced and they have nadal as top seed followed by djokovic, federer and Murray, In that order. According to the past 3 draws for Wimbledon, the number 1 seed has always been drawn to face the 3rd seed in the semi final- so it seems almost certain that we shall have nadal – federer and Murray- djokovic as the semin final lineup. Thoughts?

Who is the gentleman in the photo? Obviously it’s not Clijsters, it’s not Querrey…is it Becker?


Andrea Says:

I put money on Kim retiring again by end of this year….she won’t be inspired to continue with injuries.
