Hewitt beats girlfriend Clijsters in Love Match

Hewitt beats girlfriend Clijsters in Love Match

BREE, Belgium (AP) -- Lleyton Hewitt beat his fiancee Kim Clijsters 9-8 Saturday in a charity Love Match which marked the Belgian's return to court after being sidelined for a month with a wrist injury.

In front of a sellout crowd of 3,500 in Clijsters' hometown, Hewitt came back from 6-4 down to win the best-of-17-games lighthearted exhibition.


document.adtile = (document.adtile||0) + 1;document.random = document.random || Math.ceil(1+1E12*Math.random());document.write('') ;var ShockMode = 0;var plugin = (navigator.mimeTypes && navigator.mimeTypes["application/x-shockwave-flash"]) ? navigator.mimeTypes["application/x-shockwave-flash"].enabledPlugin : 0;if (plugin &&parseInt(plugin.description.substring(plugin.des cription.indexOf(".")-1)) >=4) { ShockMode = 1;}else if (navigator.userAgent &&navigator.userAgent.indexOf("MSIE")>=0 && (navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Windows 95")>=0 || navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Windows 98")>=0 || navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Windows NT")>=0)){ document.write(''); document.writeln(' on error resume next '); document.write(' ShockMode = (IsObject(CreateObject("ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFl ash.4")))'); document.write('');}if ( ShockMode ){document.write(" \n \n \n \n");}else if (!(navigator.appName&& navigator.appName.indexOf("Netscape")>=0 &&navigator.appVersion.indexOf("2.")>=0)) { document.write('http://<img ');document.write('SRC=h...#39; border=0>');} on error resume next ShockMode = (IsObject(CreateObject("ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFl ash.4")))
"I'm happy to be back on court and run," Clijsters said. Her left wrist was still heavily taped but at least the world No. 2 did not have to play with the brace she had been wearing for a month.

"I gave her a test," Hewitt said.

Clijsters moved freely around the clay court and seemed little hampered by the injury, although Hewitt rarely put her under serious pressure.

She hopes to make her official return to competition at next weekend's Fed Cup tie against Croatia, also in Bree

it was played in Bree, Kim's hometown, and well, it certainly was fun to watch, it was amazing, I was there, and well, together with all the other matches, mini-concerts etc. it was top entertainment, sometimes top tennis and there was a lot of love in the air

COME ON KIM!

Err, no. She couldn't have hit more than 10 backhands the entire game. Plus, her slice backhand might have improved, it's still not that good. Especially on clay, she'd get killed.

She never used her left (injured) wrist. She didn't play a single two-handed backhand. Plus, Lleyton was hitting to her forehand as much as he could. If necessary she sliced her backhand. Slicing is done with one hand (in Kim's case, her right (and not injured)) hand.

explanation enough?

Off course not The girls on the WTA Tour are not Kim's boyfriend. They're her rivals and won't spare her. They will target her (at the moment non-existing) backhand and she can't slice her way out of it. In order to win matches Kim needs to use her left wrist and, even with a tape and a brace, her injury isn't allowing her that at the moment.

Yea I just hope she will get better for the Fed Cup. It will show on The Tennis Channel, so I hope that Kim will play.
