Clijsters withdraws from Italian Open

ROME -- Kim Clijsters has withdrawn from the Italian Open as she recovers from an injured ankle, putting her readiness for the French Open in doubt.

The Rome tournament starts Sunday and is an important warm-up for the season's second Grand Slam, which begins May 22.

The second-ranked Clijsters hurt herself at a wedding party last month. She hasn't played since losing to Victoria Azarenka in the Sony Ericsson Open quarterfinals in Florida in March.

Third-ranked Vera Zvonareva did not enter the Rome tournament, and No. 16 Venus Williams has also withdrawn with a hip injury that has kept her out since January.

Serena Williams, who has been out since July after two foot operations and then blood clots in her lung, is also expected to withdraw.

We can only hope she gets better soon.

Re: Clijsters withdraws from Italian Open

Now only 95 more top 100 players have to withdraw, so JJ has a 16% chance to win the Italian Open.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 24 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten three top 5 players en route to her 24 titles (#4 Radwanska, #4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

This update was pigeonpowered by Aga Radwanska and fake MTO.

Re: Clijsters withdraws from Italian Open

I don't think it's necessarily news-worthy since no one really epected her to be ready by then anyway,,,?

There are only 2 current GS champions actively playing and one can't be arsed to play. I think it's a real loss for the WTA and tennis fans.
