The situation of Kim is more serious....

Clijsters in Open doubt
January 11, 2006

AUSTRALIAN Open favourite Kim Clijsters is in serious doubt for the season opening grand slam next week after injuring her leg in warm up at the Sydney International tonight.

A clearly dejected world No.2 did not want to even contemplate missing next week's Melbourne Park event but was bracing to face the music tomorrow.

Clijsters will have MRI scans in Sydney first thing in the morning to determine the exact nature of her injury after complaining of an acute muscle strain in her left hip.

The Belgian, who broke her grand slam drought at the US Open last September, said she had been suffering some back problems since flying to Australia from Hong Kong at the weekend.

yesterday on the news, she said she had already had some x-ray (??) thaken when she came back from HK. Maybe they pointed out something serious.

You've got to be kidding me

This season hardly started and it looks like an end of it

It looks more like media trying to write a sensation, just like with martina's supposed withdrowal from Sydney.

It's better to wait until official news from Kim come.

UPDATE 1-Injured Clijsters in doubt for Australian Open
Wed Jan 11, 2006 9:29 AM GMT

By Julian Linden

SYDNEY, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Kim Clijsters is doubtful for next week's Australian Open after a hip injury forced her out of the Sydney International on Wednesday.

"It's terrible," she told a news conference. "It's not good."

The Belgian, ranked second in the world, was due to play Italian Francesca Schiavone in the quarter-finals but withdrew after feeling a sharp pain during her warm-up.

Clijsters had problems with her hip last season and said she would not know the extent of her latest injury until she undergoes a scan on Thursday.

"I could hardly walk up the stairs. It feels like it's really deep inside," Clijsters said.

"I don't know what the injury is. I'll need to have some tests tomorrow."

Clijsters said she had minor back pain after flying in to Australia from Hong Kong where she played an exhibition tournament at the weekend.

"I don't know if that had something to do with it, maybe it was compensating for my back...I just don't know," she said.

"I hurt it warming up. I was hitting for about 20 minutes, just my ground strokes, and I was feeling fine.

"Then all of a sudden I just started to do serves and as soon as I served I felt some really sharp pains.

"I tried to stretch it out a little bit and do some movements to lossen up my hip or and my back but it just kept getting worse and worse."

Clijsters is one of the favourites to win the Australian Open, starting in Melbourne on Monday, after reaching the final two years ago and winning the U.S. Open last September.

The 22-year-old has been plagued with injuries since she sprained her ankle at the Hopman Cup in Australia two years ago.

She missed last year's Melbourne championship because of a wrist injury and said she could not bear to miss it again.

"That's something I don't want to think about yet," she said.

Oh no! Kim was very dependable health-wise all last year after she'd come back.
