Kim Clijsters to play ceremonial farewell match against Venus Williams
BRUSSELS – Kim Clijsters will play a ceremonial farewell match on Dec. 12 against Venus Williams.
Clijsters retired from tennis after the U.S. Open in August but announced on her website on Monday that she will face her longtime rival in the Kim's Thank You Games at the Antwerp Sports Palace.
The 29-year-old Belgian, a four-time Grand Slam winner, initially retired in 2007 only to make a return to the sport two years later. This time, she insists her retirement is for good.
