Clijsters says she moves better and sees the ball better on the blue courts used at the year’s last Grand Slam tournament, which begins Monday. She says the left hip that bothered her at a tournament a week ago is “doing good,” thanks in part to “a lot of acupuncture.”
The Belgian has a 14-match winning streak at the U.S. Open, taking the title the last two times she entered, in 2005 and 2009. In between, she took time off to get married and have a baby. And make no mistake: Clijsters considers herself a mother first, a tennis player second.
She says there are days when she decides to skip practice to spend time with her 2½-year-old daughter.
