Since the Australian Open we haven’t seen much of Kim Clijsters. Kim has struggled with multiple injuries this season. As she has attempted to return from a serious ankle injury she then tore her abdominal muscle and has announced today that she will not recover in the remaining two weeks and will therefore be forced to not attempt to defend her US Open title.
The two time defending champion said, “two weeks of rehab is 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 U.S. Open.”
When she attempted to play recently in Canada Kim was playing knowing that she had the tear and some bleeding around the tear.
