Kim Clijsters to miss China Open with foot infection


Kim Clijsters

Kim Clijsters underwent a surgery to remove a mole from her right foot and the wound got infected so the US Open champion will have to skip next month’s Premier Mandatory tournament in Beijing. In case you’re eager to see Kim’s infected foot, enjoy the sight from Kim’s very own Twitter photo of her foot.

Serena Williams, with her own foot problem, will also not play the $4.5 million China Open which starts on October 2. (via BBC, photo: sr_cranks)
