Clijsters withdraws from Unicef Open, Kerber and Paszek into Eastbourne final


Kim Clijsters returned to competitive tennis this week, after a three-month hip injury layoff, and she imposed herself as a big threat for the upcoming Wimbledon by reaching the semifinals of the Unicef Open. However, just hours before her match with Urszula Radwanska, Clijsters preventively withdrew with a stomach muscle strain. The Belgian is sure, though, that she will play Wimbledon, the last one of her career.

At the tournament in Eastbourne, Tamira Paszek reached her first Premier-level final, while world No.8 Angelique Kerber recorded her 40th win in 2012, the most of any other player, to reach the title match. Paszek came to Eastbourne with 11 first-round losses this year and in the semifinal against fourth seed and defending champion Marion Bartoli she fought back from losing the first set and trailing 0-4 in the second and 0-2 in the third. Kerber cruised past Klara Zakopalova for a 6-0 6-3 win. (source: WTA Tour, photo: © Neal Trousdale)


  1. Marine, I’m currently on a short vacation, so my blog is running on the minimum power 🙂 When I come back, I’ll post Omair’s analysis. 🙂

  2. This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
