HAMBURG, GERMANY (TICKER) -- Kim Clijsters is healthy and ready for the French Open.

Clijsters claimed her seventh career title Sunday, upsetting top seed Venus Williams of the United States at the $585,000 Betty Barclay Cup.

The second seed from Belgium, Clijsters denied Williams her fifth title of the year, rallying from one set down to post a 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory. The match lasted one hour, 52 minutes.

"She played so good in the first set but I just kept fighting and did the best to raise my level," Clijsters said. "I felt more confident as the games passed. I knew I had to be aggressive from the first points on so I'm just so happy right now."

The 18-year-old Clijsters, who has struggled with injuries this year, claimed the $93,000 first prize. She also avenged a straight-set loss to Williams in the quarterfinals at the U.S. Open.

Earlier this year, Clijsters withdrew in Memphis and Scottsdale due to a leg injury. Three weeks ago at Amelia Island she advanced to the semifinals but retired in the second set against Justine Henin with a stomach virus.

"I feel good and it's a good way to go into the French Open," Clijsters said. "I also played well in my match during the Fed Cup so I hope it continues."

Despite the loss, Williams, a two-time champion of this event, will maitain her No. 1 world ranking for at least one more week.

"In the first set, I played great shots but it's difficult to keep going like that," Williams said. "Maybe I rushed a bit too much. Kim played great tennis. She served well and moved well and was very determined."

Are they talking about Dokic? Or don't they know that Kim withdrew from Antwerp and Scottsdale, with an ARM injury. The're just stupid

lol, people who are not tennis fans should not be writing tennis columns. they obviously have no interest in the matter, and they just write stuff that's wrong and everyone thinks that it's the truth! its so annoying! not that that's any different from the rest of newspapers, but....:rolleyes: ;)
