The left foot injury Kim Clijsters sustained during the Fed Cup tie against Estonia last month has taken its toll and now it’s confirmed that the Belgian will miss the 2010 French Open.
The world No.10 Clijsters hasn’t played the French Open since reaching the semifinals in 2006 and will be replaced by Stephanie Dubois this year. However, the Belgian two-time Grand Slam champion is working on being ready for the season on grass and is expected to play at Easbourne prior to Wimbledon.
The latest news is also that Sania Mirza, Urszula Radwanska, Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Sabine Lisicki will also miss Roland Garros and will be replaced by Katie O’Brien, Anne Keothavong, Ekateryna Bychkova and Johanna Larsson. (source: On the Baseline, photo by our reader Tony)
