Kim Clijsters leaves women’s tennis as one of the top 50 greatest players of all time. Her terrific footwork and strong strokes helped her gain 34 singles titles, including the 2005 US Open, where she won over $2 million dollars in a matter of weeks.
Kim is one of the nicest people I have ever met, signing thousands of autographs at each tournament she played in, and giving out her sweat bands to anyone who asked for them. Her smile lit up stadiums after tough matches, and she always looked like she enjoyed what she did for a living. “It is time for a new life. Time for marriage. Time for children. Time also to relax and to play with my dogs. And especially to spend a lot of time with my family and friends’,” she explains on her website.
Aussie Kim, have fun and hope to see you around again!
