Elke Clijsters retires from pro-tennis!!!

Because of long-lasting backproblems, Elke Clijsters decided to retire from professional tennis.

She does want to stay active in tennis, and wants to guide young players.

Good luck Elke!

Damn! But well I'm glad I got to see her play a couple of times at least!

Good luck to her with whatever she chooses to do!

Elke Clijsters stopt meteen met tennissen
di 15/06/04 - Elke Clijsters stopt meteen met tennissen. De jongere zus van Kim Clijsters ondervindt te veel hinder van een aanslepende rugblessure.

Elke Clijsters speelt al heel lang met pijn. Volgens de dokters zou blijven tennissen de rug nu ernstige schade kunnen toebrengen. De 19-jarige Clijsters nam de beslissing met tegenzin, maar had geen andere keuze weten HBvL en HNB.

Elke Clijsters stond rond de 400e plaats op de WTA-ranking. In 2002 won ze nog de wereldtitel als beste dubbelspeelster bij de junioren. Nu gaat ze jonge tennissers begeleiden.

Good she won her first title some weeks ago, she quitted an a high
All the best Elke

C'mon Belgians

I can imagine that this is a very very hard decision for a 19-yr old girl..

I'm not even a pro, and I would be devasted if I had to stop playing tennis

Oh, that's a shame...
So she's out for the Fed Cup as well? Who's gonna take her place now?

I didn't see this coming, have a feeling other Belgians may follow her way soon tho...

All the best, Elke

All the best in 2007 Caroline Maes

Yeah, 'het was met serieuze tegenzin' following some papers and Sporza TT. But health goes in first place
