That's if you translate this dutch article in "Het Nieuwsblad" literally. I think they forgot to add: after Antwerp 2008 right?????? I hope this is just an error

Kim Clijsters stopt met tennissen

Kim Clijsters heeft aangekondigd dat ze na de Diamond Games in Antwerpen voorgoed stopt met tennissen. De kwetsuur die ze vorige maand tijdens het tennistoernooi van Sydney opliep, was de druppel die de emmer deed overlopen. ,,Ik heb er echt geen zin meer in om voortdurend gekwetst te zijn'', zei Kim gisteren in een tv-interview. ,,Daarom heb ik besloten volgende maand mijn tennisracket aan de haak te hangen.'' Kim gaat in mei voor al haar fans nog een groot tuinfeest geven in Bree.

="That's why I decided to retire next month"

No, I am sure if that was the case she would have made a statement on her website.

I'm afraid the article indeed does seem to say that Kim will retire after this year's edition of the Diamond Games, but I haven't seen this being confirmed by any other Belgian news channel! So let's hope it's just a mistake...

I didn't find anything in any other newspaper or tv channel, so it's probably a huge error or completey invented by the journalist

great smash

I don't buy it.

However, in an interview she gave 2 hours ago, she did sound a bit fed up. Asking her if she had been able to recharge the batteries, she said "well for this week at least". Doubt if she'll quit soon, but she didn't sound as if she was looking forward to the rest of the season

Does anyone have more information on the huge garden party she's giving for all her fans?!?!

She says in an interview that playing in Antwerp doesn't hold any risks, but that she WILL PLAY FOR THE NEXT FEW MONTHS with a taped foot. Doesn't sound like the comment from someone who's about to retire..........
