Jan 13th, 2004, 09:50 AM
Women's defending champion Kim Clijsters withdrew Tuesday due to an ankle injury that sidelined her during the Hopman Cup in Perth last week. The 20-year-old Belgian said she's in doubt for the Australian Open, where she's seeded second behind top-ranked Justine Henin-Hardenne.

Her place in the Adidas International draw went to Denisa Chladkova, who will face Anna Smashnova-Pistolesi in the second round. Smashnova-Pistolesi beat Myriam Casanova 6-3, 6-3.
