Kim Clijsters victorious in return to grand-slam action

Kim ClijstersThe 2005 US Open champion Kim Clijsters, who has received a wildcard this year, wasn’t really tested in her first-round match at the 2009 US Open and defeated  Viktoriya Kutuzova 6-1 6-1 in just 58 minutes.

The 26-year-old Clijsters is playing her third tournament after a two-year-long break and a child birth. The Belgian former world No.1 had scored victories over four Top 20 players (Marion Bartoli, Patty Schnyder, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Victoria Azarenka) in Cincinnati and Toronto, prior to this US Open.

Clijsters will most likely face world No.14 Marion Bartoli in the second round, whom she beat in Cincinnati, in the match which opened her comeback to professional tennis. (photo via Sony Ericsson WTA Tour)
