Super-Mom of tennis - Belgian Kim Clijsters is playing in the Olympics for the very first time in her career. She missed out in Sydney and Athens Olympic games and could not participate in 2008 Beijing games, as she gave birth to her daughter.
In the her previous two rounds, she defeated Italian Roberta Vinci and Carla Suareznavarro of Spain in straight sets. Today she faces 11th seed Serbian Ana Ivanovic, who is also taking part in her first Olympics.
Similar to Clijsters, Ivanovic also won her first two round matches against Christina Mchale and Elena Baltacha in straight sets.
In head to head series, Clijsters lead 5-0 and recently they met at Brisbane this year where Clijsters won with 6-1 1-6 6-3 scoreline.
TennisEarth Pick: This will be first meeting on grass between the two players and could go Ivanovic's way if she serves well otherwise Clijsters should win in three sets.
