Kim Clijsters in 4th round of U.S. Open
Defending champion Kim Clijsters overcame a slow start to breeze into the fourth round of the U.S. Open on Friday.
Clijsters dropped the first three games of her match with Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic but went on to win 6-3, 6-0 at Flushing Meadows, N.Y.
The second seed from Belgium will now face former French Open champion Ana Ivanovic of Serbia, who was a 7-5, 6-0 winner over Virginie Razzano of France.
Clijsters won the Open last year in her first Slam since returning from a break of two years, during which time she gave birth to a daughter. She hasn't been able to match that initial splash this year, and suffered a hip injury at the Rogers Cup in Montreal in late August.
"A match like this today probably gives me more satisfaction, because I beat a good player without even playing my best tennis," Clijsters said.
