After the much delay and pushing the limits of procrastination, the super Mom Clijsters earned the victory with a 6-2 6-7 7-6 score line. Till the very last moment, match oscillated to extremes as both players exhibited nervousness like amateurs. Finally, Clijsters earned the victory, which can be rightly called as a much-delayed triumph. Now, she will face the American Venus Williams in the final of the Sony Ericsson Open 2010.
Clijsters pocketed the first set comfortably 6-2, after breaking in the eighth game. Clijsters started off very positively and it appeared like business as usual for the Belgian. Clijsters complemented her quick serve excellently with well executed ground-strokes to win the first set comprehensively.
Clijsters started off really well in the second set from where she left in the first as she raced to 3-0 with a blink of an eye. But, this was when Henin jolted from a slumber and she retaliated well by winning the next three games. Both players held on to their serves, until the set moved into the tie-break. Henin won the second set in a tie-break after Clijsters let her come back by making too many unforced errors.
The third set witnessed the flurry of excellent tennis shots from both the players. Both broke each other once and again the set moved into the tie-break. More than an epic tie-break, it turned out to be a bit of ridiculous example of temper fragility, as both players missed out on key moments by committing uncharacteristic unforced errors. After all the hullaballoo and hold-up, Clijsters won the match.
