Kim Clijsters has been inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame this weekend in Newport, Rhode Island, and the best thing was to see the Belgian sharing the special moment with her husband Brian Lynch and three beautiful kids (Jada Elle, Jack Leon Lynch, and baby Blake Richard Lynch).
Being one of just six WTA players to hold a No.1 ranking in both singles and doubles at the same time, Clijsters’ story is even more extraordinary because she retired in 2007 to start a family and then returned in 2009, after giving birth to her daughter, spectacularly winning three of her four Grand Slam titles in that second career and returning to No.1 in 2011, despite taking care of a toddler. Who says you can’t have it all?
To honor Clijsters’ great achievement, her long-time clothing sponsor Fila created a special collection featuring unique details that pay tribute to her years with the brand and her major trophies.
