If you want to know what Kim is doing in this ATP tournament while Lleyton is defending his title:

Clijsters Claims Wives and Girlfriends Competition

Kim Clijsters is a winner at the Stella Artois Championships after an impressive display of tennis at the Queen's Club.

For those of you wondering how a world number five woman player can taste glory at an ATP men's event, the reason is that the Belgian, here to support her boyfriend Lleyton Hewitt, had entered the annual wives and girlfriends tournament at the Stella Artois.

Clijsters toned her play down a little to keep the event social, but still did enough to join Scott Draper's girlfriend Jessica Kersten as the winners of the event.

Also taking part were Jan-Michael Gambill's mother Diane, Bob Bryan's girlfriend Jennifer Kuhl, and Lleyton Hewitt's mother Cherylin.

The event was organised by Felicity Bernstein, the widow of former Stella Artois tournament director, Clive Bernstein.

"This is the 25th year that we have held the event," she said. "It was started by Rosemary Gullikson and it was so popular that Clive wanted to run it every year."

Well good on Kim but I think the other competitors are the ones who deserve a medal for taking her on!!

Arn, I don't know about a draw or anything of that kind.
Btw, BBC had some coverage of this event yesterday.
They showed Kim, Lleyton's mother, JM Gambill's mother,... it all looked very relaxed.

I can tell you that Kim played underated, just to let the others not losing 6-0 6-0!!
