Belgian press is reporting that Kim Clijsters is doubtful for Roland Garros. It seems that Clijsters was dancing at her nephews wedding and severely sprained her ankle. It's reported that she has a hematoma on the ankle, her right ankle, and that there are torn ligaments. She is expected to be out 4-6 weeks.
So Clijsters, who doesn't want to play Roland Garros anyway, is injured and will not be able to prepare for the French Open. Does she really want to play on clay anyway? Is Wimbledon something she wants to do? Let's be real here. Clijsters plays almost nothing coming into the US Open and when you look at the ankle injury and combine it with the reported shoulder injury she may not step on a court until the summer hardcourt season is underway. If you remember this is how she was so rested coming into the US Open when she returned a couple of years ago and won.
Will her injury be questioned like Serena Williams much more serious injury has been? Don't count on it. St Kim is above reproach. She's a mother after all. And we all know all of Kim's motives are above board. Right? I'm just saying.
