If you would've asked me two weeks ago if I thought Kim Clijsters would end up a two-time U.S. Open champion, I would have said that's as likely as a foot fault being called on a player deep in a second set and that player losing the match after being docked a point for verbally abusing an official. I mean, it just couldn't happen, right?
Oh, wait: that did happen! So I guess it's within the realm of possibility that Clijsters could win after all!
Not to sound like I'm spouting too much hyperbole, but this, in my opinion, is one of the most impressive tennis feats I've seen in my lifetime. I'm very, very happy for Clijsters and I wish her further success in her comeback! (And if you've read this, then you should know that wasn't the easiest thing for me to write, but I'm more than coming around!)
