    Victory at US Open for 'Tennis Mama' Kim Clijsters

    [​IMG]
    It seems motherhood is doing wonders for tennis star Kim Clijsters, who has managed to hold onto her US Open title for a second year.

    Having taken a break from the sport two years ago to get married and start a family, Kim has made an incredible comeback, taking the tennis world by storm.

    The 27-year-old, known in her native Belgium as the "Tennis Mama" was the first mother to have won a US Open, last year.

    Since then she has won 21 consecutive matches in New York, beating Russian Vera Zvonareva in straight sets, to secure her title.

    Despite her sporting success, family is still Kim's top priority.

    Her two-year-old daughter Jada was on hand to share in her success, and the star confirmed she would keep playing tennis, only "as long as it's worth balancing and if I'm able to balance it with the family."

    Perhaps it's possible to have it all, after all.

    Well Clijsters story is like typical film story.She was very good tennis player but used to get defeated in Semi's or in Final of Grand slams .She won only one Grand slam before marriage .At the peak age she decided to quit Tennis to get married and going for a child.
    But after returning from motherhood She won 2 back to Back US open titles.She still says that she is a full time mom and sometime even misses practice sessions for her daughter
    on the other hand the women she is defeating follow strict schedule prescribed by there coaches.
