Clijsters to end playing career at U.S. Open
The former No. 1 had already announced that this would be her final season and said Tuesday that she expects to quit after Flushing Meadows, where she is a three-time champion.
Clijsters said at a news conference that ``I will end my career at the U.S. Open.''
The Belgian star said Flushing Meadows ``is where I enjoyed my greatest triumphs and it is a very special place for me.''
Clijsters is skipping the entire clay-court season as she recovers from a hip injury, but hopes to be fit for Wimbledon and the London Olympics.
Clijsters initially retired in 2007 because of injuries, but returned to the sport in 2009, winning her second U.S. Open that year.

More Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who recently announced his support to the Pro-Kabaddi League, says that sport chose him. "I did not choose kabaddi; in fact, the sport chose me. It's a traditional sport and is yet to receive its due in a cricket-csrazy nation. Being a sports lover myself, I want to change the perception about the game in India. Despite kabaddi being an Indian game, it comes a long way down the pecking order of sports in our country. I want to promote it and would like to see the fan base of the game increasing tremendously with this tournament," he said.
