Playing only her second competitive match in more than two years, wildcard Kim Clijsters beat world No.20 Patty Schnyder 6-2 7-5 to reach the third round of the Western and Southern Financial Group Women’s Open.
Don’t forget that Clijsters started her comeback with a win over world No.13 Marion Bartoli!
The Belgian’s opponent in the third round will be sixth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia.
Seed No.11 Ana Ivanovic suffered an upset to world No.59 Melinda Czink, despite leading by a break in both sets. Ivanovic committed 11 double faults and lost this second-round match 7-6 7-5.
And only two days ago did I read that Ivanovic had found a cure for her troubled serve!
