Wimbledon: Australian Open champion Kim Clijsters has withdrawn from Wimbledon because of a foot injury.

The second-ranked Belgian, who was seeded No. 2 on Wednesday, said she had to pull out of the grass-court Grand Slam after re-injuring her right foot at the Unicef Open in the Netherlands on Tuesday.

Clijsters says "at this moment I feel frustrated that it has to happen now before one of my favorite tournaments. I've always enjoyed being a part of the Wimbledon atmosphere but I have no other choice now but to rest, recover and to not play tennis for a few weeks."

The two-time U.S. Open winner hurt her right ankle in April while dancing barefoot at her cousin's wedding. She played at the French Open but lost in the second round.

Reportedly it has nothing to do with the previous ankle injury.

Poor Kim. She can use the break, and if she's smart, reduce the number of hardcourt events she enters when that season starts.

I wish her a speedy recovery and would like to see her back soon.

I prefer Serena's back, though.

Was she wearing an ankle brace on her foot? (I can't find any photos)

It seems like this latest injury could have been avoided, by wearing an ankle brace on an ankle with loose (recently sprained) ligaments.

It would seem women's tennis is one long series of injuries..

3 USOs (2005, 2009, 2010), 1 AO (2011). The farthest she's made it at Wimbledon is SF in 2003 and 2006. Given her recent injuries and history at the event, I don't think she was a factor to win anyways. Better for her to rest up and get 100% healthy for the Open.

hmm i have no idea. What is Plantar Fascitis like??

But she injured in the grass court event she entered before wimbledon.. the commentators during a serena match last night talked about it. they said she injured it during the 1st set and lost the match after.

I cant find any more info or pictures/videos on it tho
