SYDNEY, Jan 12 (Reuters) - Kim Clijsters has been cleared of serious injury after undergoing a scan on a hip problem that threatened her participation in next week's Australian Open.
The world number two said the scans revealed she had inflamed her left hip and would require further treatment before she could be certain of playing in the Open, starting in Melbourne on Monday.
"I had an MRI scan this morning and it's shown I have an inflammation of the hip joint and tendon," she said in a statement released by the Women's Tennis Association on Thursday.
"The good news is that there is no tear of the muscle.
"In the next couple of days I'm going to receive more treatment and do some stabilisation exercises. At that point I'll have a better idea of my condition."
Clijsters was seeded second for the Open on Thursday and is considered a favourite to triumph in Melbourne.
She suffered a scare on Wednesday, though, when she withdrew from the Sydney International after feeling a sharp pain during her warm-up.
Clijsters said she had minor back pain after flying in to Australia from Hong Kong where she played an exhibition tournament at the weekend and thought that might have been a contributing factor.
