Two time defending champion Kim Clijsters out of 2011 US Open

Confirmed on twitter

Quote:
Clijsters statement: "“Unfortunately, I will not be able to defend my US Open title this year because of a stomach muscle injury (left rectus abdominus strain). Two weeks of rehab was not enough to heal this injury. Obviously I’m very disappointed. I trained very hard this summer and felt in a good shape to play the US Open.”

Re: Kim Clijsters out of 2011 US Open

As expected, this type of injury dosen't heal quickly.

The USO is very wide open this year... with Cijsters out, Vika & Serena potentially not 100% fit either, Kvitova struggling on HC as usual and Caro in the middle of a huge switch this really is anybody's tournament to win.

Probably. We all know she doesn't like to play the Asian events.

She might as well just go ahead and retire. Again.

I dont think anyone actually thought she would play. Stomach injuries do not magically heal in 2 weeks. But either way it sucks I hope she has a good recovery
