The bad news continues for Kim Clijsters. Playing her final season the Belgian has suffered from one setback after another. Clijsters turned her ankle at the Australian Open, injured her hip in Miami and now she’ll miss the French Open.
“My current physical condition does not allow me to get into top shape for Roland Garros,” the 28-year-old said Tuesday.
“However I cannot wait to begin a long period of preparation for the grass court season, with the main objectives Wimbledon and the Olympics.”
On her official website, Clijsters lists Rosmalen in June as her next event. She was scheduled to return after her hip injury in Madrid next month.
Clijsters missed the 2011 French Open as well because of a freak ankle injury during a family function. The four-time Grand Slam winner is ranked No. 41 this week. Kim’s won 41 career titles most recently at the 2011 Australian Open.
