Clijsters nears No. 1 ranking



LOS ANGELES, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- Top-seeded Kim Clijsters crushed French lefthander Emilie Loit Wednesday, 6-1, 6-1, in the second round of the JP Morgan Chase Open.

Although Serena Williams has been atop the rankings for 57 consecutive weeks, she is out for two months after undergoing left knee surgery Friday. The absence of the sport's dominant player opens up the WTA Tour, but that does not excite Clijsters.

"I've tried to contact her management company, to wish her the best or send her an e-mail," she said. "Tennis is a sport, but you get to know the person, and they become friends, too."

With the six-time Grand Slam titleholder sidelined, Clijsters can assume the top spot in the rankings by winning the title here and picking up 60 bonus points.

Clijsters' quick victory set up a third-round meeting against 16-year-old Russian sensation Maria Sharapova.

Well, Justine didn't pretend to be injured against Kim, she had to change the tape on her blisters :rolleyes:
And it's her own problems if Kim prefered to play while injured in her shoulder last year.
Well, Money must be a big motivation :devil:

She is the sweetest. I love her balanced outlook and attitude on life. It'll certainly make her a more sane person and player at the end of the game. :worship:

I wish I could call and ask Serena's management company for her phone number and email address!!! :p

I think she means what she says. maybe they're not really friends, but it's known here in Belgium that Kim keeps contact with sporters who have a blessure or so, just to wish them all the best.

For her it's not a big deal, i think, she finds it normal. :)
