Kim Clijsters eases into 3rd round of Wimbledon with comfortable win

Kim Clijsters eased into the third round of Wimbledon by beating Andrea Hlavackova of the Czech Republic 6-3, 6-3 on Wednesday on Centre Court.

Clijsters never faced a break point and broke her opponent three times, including in the final game to wrap up the win in one hour, five minutes.

The match took place underneath the retractable roof on Centre Court after rain showers interrupted play earlier in the day.

Clijsters is playing in her final Wimbledon tournament, having said she is retiring from the sport after this year's US Open.

I'm very impressed with the way Kim is playing, very controlled and focused throughout nice to see.

If her body holds up she might be able to make a run at the title yet (and what a story that would be!).  Since her 2nd comeback I've learned never to count her out.
