Kiné: 'Kim zelf wou spelen'

Kinesist Sam Verslegers heeft wat meer uitleg gegeven bij het forrfait van Kim Clijsters voor haar halve finale op het grastornooi in Rosmalen. 'Kim zelf wou nog spelen maar uit voorzorg leek het mij beter naar het ziekenhuis te gaan om haar te laten onderzoeken.'
Onderzoek wees daar uit dat Clijsters sukkelde met een vochtophoping rond een kleine blessure aan haar buikspieren.

'Ze voelde iets tijdens de opwarming en wou zelf nog gewoon spelen maar we willen geen risico's nemen', aldus Verslegers. 'Met deze blessure had ze morgen wel gerust kunnen spelen en op een tornooi zoals Wimbledon zou ze ook geen forfait geven, maar nu moeten we denken aan wat nog volgt: Wimbledon de Spelen en de US Open.'

^^ Sam says Kim wanted to play, but her team adviced her not to and go to the hospital to get an examination
That showed she has some fluids around a small injury in her stomach muscles.
"She felt something during warm up and she herself still wanted to play, but we didn't want to take any risks. With this injury she could have played and on a tournament like Wimbledon she wouldn't have given a walk over, but now we have to think about what's still coming up: Wimbledon, Olympics & US Open" says Sam

good decision, thank god Kim finally starts to listen to experts and doesn't keep playing with small injuries in small tournaments

Re: Rosmalen - Unicef Open 2012

Probably the best decision but honestly, if Kim cannot get through three relatively easy matches this week without an injury, how will she get deep in the draw at Wimbledon? I'm not trying to be pessimistic, but I just can't see her beating the big names on her worst surface if she's not at 100%...

2005, 2009, 2010 US Open
2011 Australian Open

Thank You, Kim

I was expecting Kim to withdraw since her R2 match. And I'm not that worried to be honest, don't know why
