Citizen Watches Ambassador Kim Clijsters Misses Wimbledon

Citizen watches ambassador Kim Clijsters has confirmed that she will miss this yearís Wimbledon tournament.

The injury is the second suffered this year by Clijsters, after the first prevented her from playing in this yearís French Open. Clijsters sustained the new injury during her match against Romina Oprandi at the UNICEF Open in the Netherlands.

During the match, she skidded on the grass court and fell, twisting her right ankle which resulted in severe bruising and a tendon injury. The new injury is unrelated to her previous ankle problem and it is thought it could not have been prevented by the application of ankle tape.

The Citizen watches ambassador has been ordered to rest and will resume training in a monthís time to enable her to take part in this summerís major US events such as the US Open, which takes place in late August. The event features Clijstersí major sponsor Citizen watches as the official timekeeper.

Earlier this season, the player had to take time off to recover from shoulder and wrist injuries sustained as a result of the WTA tournament in Miami at the end of March. In early April, she injured her ankle whilst attending the wedding party of a cousin. She returned to the courts at the French Open but her lack of competitive play and training activity showed and she was ousted in the second round by the Dutch player Arantxa Rux, currently ranked 114th in the professional standings, 112 places below Clijsters.

Clijster has so far reached four Grand Slam finals and has won 34 singles titles in her career. She has also won 9 doubles titles with her partner, Japanese player Ai Sugiyama. She retired from the sport in 2007, playing her last tournament in Warsaw. Kim returned to the game in March 2009 initially aiming to participate in exhibition tournaments but returned to competitive tennis in August 2009. A few weeks later she returned to the US Open, the tournament she won in 2005.
