World No. 2 Kim Clijsters has withdrawn from Wimbledon citing a foot injury.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.

“I’m very very disappointed to have to withdraw from Wimbledon after injuring my foot again at the tournament in ‘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. I’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

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.
