Just when you thought you’d seen the last of the battling Belgians, Clijsters and Henin returned to the WTA tour and let us know why we should have never let them leave.
Clijsters rustled her way past every hurdle at Flushing Meadows in 2009 to hoist the trophy, despite being unseeded.
Henin almost added the Australian Open this year to her list of Grand Slam achievements.
Can the feisty Clijsters claim her third US Open title?
She’s displayed extraordinary composure so far; she hung in tough against a stellar Stosur in the quarters.
She’s an inspiration for sporting mammas everywhere. Can she make this the Mother of All Slams?
Kim Clijsters on the emotion she experiences on a great victory: “I mean, last year my emotions were very confusing because they were, you know, happiness, but then also sad at the same time, you know. But it's different for everybody. I mean, it's something that you have to—yeah, you have to experience, obviously. I guess it's maybe like having a baby. You can't explain it to somebody who has never had a baby what it's like to give birth, because it's a feeling that you, yeah, can't describe unless it's happened to you.”
