NEW YORK, NY, USA - Due to a left abdominal injury she suffered in Toronto last week, Kim Clijsters has withdrawn from the upcoming US Open, where she has won three times - 2005, 2009 and 2010. She is currently ranked No.3.

"Unfortunately, I will not be able to defend my US Open title this year because of a stomach muscle injury," the 28-year-old commented. "Two weeks of rehab was not enough to heal this injury. Obviously I'm very disappointed. I trained very hard this summer and felt in a good shape to play the US Open.

"Now there is nothing else I can do than to rest and have treatment every day. If a gradual approach is not taken, I will relapse in the same injury, and therefore I have also no other possibility than to withdraw from Tokyo and Beijing."

Clijsters is a four-time Grand Slam champion, winning the aforementioned three US Open titles as well as the Australian Open title earlier this year.

those abdominal injuries are horrible, you cannot rush their recovery. Enjoy your time with Jada, it will be so worth it.
