Clijsters ordered to rest for four weeks
Wednesday 06 April 2011
World No 2 Kim Clijsters has been ruled out for four weeks owing to shoulder and wrist injuries.
Medics have advised the 27-year-old Belgian to take "four to six weeks of relative rest and intensive functional physiotherapy" after tests showed both joints were "clearly overstrained".
Clijsters will miss the Fed Cup semi-final against Czech Republic later this month and a WTA event in Madrid, but hopes to be back for the Internazionali BNL d'Italia starting on 9 May – two weeks before the French Open.
