Clijsters to face Bertens on WTA return
- 15 Feb 2020
Kim Clijsters will begin her WTA Tour comeback against world number eight Kiki Bertens at the Dubai Tennis Championships.
The first-round clash will be the four-time major champion’s first professional match in seven and a half years, having retired after the 2012 US Open.
Clijsters, a mother of three, revealed her shock decision to return to tennis last September but a knee injury forced her to sit out the start of the season.
The 36-year-old, a former world number one, was granted a wildcard for the singles tournament in Dubai, which begins on Monday.
