The Belgian Veteran, Kim Clijsters will be venturing into the Aegon International tournament and trying to get used to the quicker grass courts before starting play at Wimbledon. She will be playing fellow Belgian Yanina Wickmayer in the first round. Clijsters is seeded number five in the tournament and stands at number 9 in the WTA rankings. Wickmayer who reached the Quarter finals at the Aegon Classic held prior to this tournament is ranked at 16 in the WTA world rankings.
Clijsters had recorded one of the best comebacks in the game of tennis as she has quickly risen to a world ranking of 9 even after a series of injuries and personal setbacks. Clijsters will be looking forward to her performance in this tournament after a vital two month break from tennis due to an injury. Clijsters has a good win/loss record this year which stands at 16/3. Alongside Wickmayer has been doing considerably great herself as she has won much more than she has lost. She has a win/loss record of 27/9 this year.
Clijsters has won many of her memorable matches with perfect assistance from her aggressive and strategically placed deep ground strokes. Moreover Clijsters is known for her court coverage and the determination with which she enters the court. She is surely expected to put the same amount of determined effort into this match also. Wickmayer proved her mettle in the previous tournament before losing to an American qualifier Alison Riske in the quater finals of the Aegon Classic and seems to be in great flow which could prove advatangeous in this match up against Clijsters.
