Clijsters: I won't play in Japan or Beijing this year

World No. 2 Kim Clijsters tell the press in Miami that her fear of getting radiation poisoning as a result of leaks in a couple of Japan's nuclear reactors will keep her from playing any tournaments in Asia this fall. "I won't go [to Japan], Clijsters said. "And I won't go to Beijing either."

Isn't it a bit early to make this decision?
This is still 6 months away!

Re: Clijsters: I won't play in Japan or Beijing this year

I hope that's not her real reason, and it's about not wanting Jada to be away from her for so long. Because she would be pretty damn dumb if fear of radiation poisoning is her reason for pulling out from tournaments 6 months in advice.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

She should just retire now if she can't be bothered.

Kim doesn't seem to like Asia much So found a way out early. Sad really because she could have done well in both events/won them.

It's hard to be a fan when you are being so ridiculous, Kim.
