Tennis-Open-Clijsters wobbles a bit at the start but cruises
NEW YORK |
NEW YORK Aug 27 (Reuters) - Kim Clijsters overwhelmed American teenager Victoria Duval 6-3 6-1 on Monday in a powerful start to the final tournament of her career at the U.S. Open.
The three-times champion at Flushing Meadows wobbled a bit in the opening set against the 16-year-old wildcard but prevailed in 51 minutes.
Duval was the youngest player in the women's draw and won three straight games at one point in the first set against the former world number one.
Clijsters, 29, will retire after the U.S. Open to concentrate on family life. (Reporting By Will Swanton; editing by Steve Ginsburg)
