Go, Tennis Mother!
SEPTEMBER 29, 2009Eazibee I can't help but rave about Kim Clijsters - along with the article linked below from the New York Times! What a woman!
After retiring from her tennis career, having a baby girl and raising her through her first 18 months of life, Kim returned to tennis this summer and today won the US Open women's singles title. On the way, she claimed victory over both the Williams sisters (quite a feat in itself) and several other top-seeded players, though she was at the tournament on a wildcard.
She really is an inspiration - such character, dedication and grace. In a tournament that has seen a few tantrums on court, there were none today - from either Clijsters or her toddler daughter. Just some good tennis, and a great comeback story.Read the story: Clijsters Wins the United States Open
