Kim not playing Indian Wells because its "too early" for her

Kim resumes in Miami
Kim Clijsters will resume competition in Miami (19 March - 1 April). The Indian wells tournament early March is too early for her.Kim has opted for full recovery before resuming competition. Last year Kim reached the quarter finals in Miami. She subsequently beat Anastasiya Yakimova, Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez and Ana Ivanovic. In the quarter finals Victoria Azarenka proved too strong.

"I'm very disappointed that due to my ankle injury I'm not able to take part in this year's BNP Paribas Open. Indian Wells has always been quite special tourmanent for me. In 2003 and 2005 I won the event after a period of recovery from an injury. I really have the most fond memories of Indian Wells and always enjoyed the support I got there from the audience. I wish the tournament the very best", Kim concluded.

After her semi final at the Australian Open Kim decided to rest for a while, but she has now resumed training. Training sessions will become more intensive in the next few weeks. From the first moments on the pitch, Kim proved very eager.

Re: Kim not playing Indian Wells because its "too early" for her

I am not surprised of her pullout after looking at her web presence some days ago. Her full statement:

Re: Kim not playing Indian Wells because its "too early" for her

I presume this is Kim's final season, and (like the W/S) she no longer cares that much about a stupid ranking system she transcended (after being the WTA's first slamless #1) by dominating the US hardcourts in 2005; starting from winning IW on a wildcard as #136, because she'd played Bob Verbeeck's new little Belgian event the past September, though clearly not ready to. (Thus not getting an IPR @ IW, because she hadn't been out 6 months). BTW, maybe she can get the USTA to replace her @ IW by giving her sister Elke a maindraw WC.

I must admit I wasn't really surprised as well that she pulled out.
It's not like she needs the money or the points. I do wish she'll be seeded for RG though...

And on another note, I saw Elke in the exhibition match she played with her sister against Wozniacki and Wickmayer... She was by far not the worst player on that court...

Thank you! KIM CLIJSTERS FOR EVER MY NUMBER 1

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Did you just compare me to Wozniacki? - Legend

Well I should hope so. The only reason to have an opinion in article is to get a rise out of Kim.

Re: Kim not playing Indian Wells because its "too early" for her

Not saying I like her picking and choosing events but Bodo is well known as a Clijsters hater... There was that time he described her as a milkmaid or something as well

Maria Sharapova
Sabine Lisicki - Victoria Azarenka - Nastya Pavyuchenkova
Yanina Wickmayer - Laura Robson - Aga Radwanska - KiKi Mladenovic - Angelique Kerber
Simona Halep - Heather Watson - Julia Goerges - Kimiko Date Krumm - Lucie Safarova - Nadia Petrova
