Kim Clijsters defeats Venus Williams in US Open Semis
Written under: Sports
Defending champion, Kim Clijsters, continues on her winning streak after defeating Venus Williams at the women’s singles semifinals for the US Open tennis championships.
She scored 4-6, 7-6 (7-2), 6-4 against the two-time champion and earned her place for the Saturday finals. She will be up against Wimbledon finalist Vera Zvonareva of Russia, who defeated top seed Caroline Wozniacki in their semifinals match.
In an interview, Clijsters has this to say about Zvonareva, “She’s a very tough opponent. She’s a player who doesn’t give you much. She’s always there, hangs in there. It’s not that she has a game that’s very unpredictable, but what she does, she does extremely well.”
Watch the US Open tennis women’s singles finals today live from Arthur Ashe Stadium starting 8:00 PM ET to be broadcast over at CBS in the US.
