This time Kim Clijsters sent Olga Govortsova (Belarussia) packing in White Sulphur Springs (West Virginia), taking it with 5-2. Matches are being played to the best of 9.
Earlier, Kim Clijsters had beaten Sloane Stephens, the world's number 37, and Sofia Kenin, the world's number 4 and the winner of the Australian Open. 21-year-old Kenin, a big fan of Clijsters in her childhood, was beaten 5-3.
37-year-old and mother of three Kim Clijsters is making a second comeback at the highest level. At first, her comeback was slowed down by injuries, but now Clijsters seems to have got the engine going. West Virginia is just a test event in times of corona, the big challenges should be coming this autumn.
