Kim Clijsters: Only the 2nd ever person to defeat both the Williams in GS and win it!

Justine Henin did that in USO 2007... now another Belgian followed suit... KIM CLIJSTERS!

Ironically, both are Belgians, and the wins were at USO

Re: Was Kim Clijsters only the 3rd person to defeat the Williams in GS and win it?

No, there wasn't. Hingis beat both WS at AO 01 (which IMO was more impressive than the victories by Kim and Justine) but lost in the finals to Capriati
