When will it end? Clijsters to miss 4 weeks with hip injury

http://sports.yahoo.com/tennis/news?...ijstersinjured

BRUSSELS (AP)—Kim Clijsters has a torn hip muscle and will have to recover for four weeks before making a return in Madrid in May.

A statement from her management company on Wednesday said that she had been troubled with hip pains during the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, Florida, over the weekend, where she lost to Belgian compatriot Yanina Wickmayer in straight sets.

Tests “have shown the presence of a small torn muscle” in her right hip, the statement said. She hopes to be back for the Madrid Open, which opens May 5.

Clijsters has said she plans to retire after the summer, hoping to highlight her year with a good showing at the London Olympics.

--Maybe the softer clay will help her avoid injury? but the rallies are even longer

Missing tournaments due to injury is becoming almost the norm now for Kim.

One can only hope she will be fit enough to do well in Wimbledon and the Olympics.

Quite surprising she continues to get so many injuries even without playing. Maybe the on-again, off-again nature of juggling parenthood and pro tennis is taking its toll.

She is either lying about the injury or is in denial that she should retire, in order to preserve her body. Whatever, I wish her well.

She was never gonna show up for the clay warmups anyway. Hopefully she'll be fine for the French.

Kim

Just retire, I mean you hardly play any tournaments as your whole year consists of injuries...

I don't think it's surprising. It's actually natural if your body is so unused to playing matches, that you keep picking up injuries on the rare occasions that you do play, because it's such a sudden shock to the system and your body doesn't have much resilience. And no matter how much offcourt training she does, you can never simulate the tension that your body is going through in a proper match.

Serena found this out in that whole 2004-07 period, when she was playing really infrequently and getting minor injuries pretty much everytime she played....then as soon as she started playing a fairly regular schedule from 2008 onwards, counter-intuitively the more she played the less she was injured. And in fact, Kim herself, the one period of her comeback where she was actually playing a pretty full schedule, between June 2010 and March 2011, that whole period she didn't get a single major injury.... then she got that freak injury from dancing at a wedding just before last year's claycourt season, but since then she's got it into her head that the less she plays the less likely she is to get injured, when the opposite is true. Skipping Indian Wells in order to have a two-month break after the AO, having been off the tour for the entire 6 months before that, was always going to be insane. Hopefully when this latest injury heals, she realises she's just going to have to put her nose to the grindstone and start playing most of the big tournaments (obviously there's a balance to be struck, and anything close to a Wozniacki-like schedule would be insane - but, call me biased, but I would say Maria's approach to scheduling is pretty much the perfect one for a top player, playing all the major warm-ups for Slams and playing just about regularly enough that her body doesn't fall out of the match-playing routine).

I don't think she's lying about this injury if you watched her match against Yanina she had trouble when pushed out wide and normally she has incredible ability to push off and get back into a rally from there

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Something like this.

She keeps getting injured after hardly playing at all.
