Kim Clijsters and her long-time rival and fellow Belgian Justine Henin have announced that they will be teaming up to represent the Belgian women's at the 2012 London Olympics.
“It would be nice of course to do it for the Olympic Games, because I tell myself that that year might be my last full season. So it would be nice to end that season in style,” said Clijsters. “But again, as Justine mentioned already, we have to get together to discuss this, see what the possibilities are and assess how far we want to go in this."
“I have stopped telling myself the last weeks that I am getting old, I prefer to think that I am getting more mature,” Henin said. “I think that if on the health level everything goes as planned, there is still a lot of potential for me. I have regained some freshness in the last two weeks.”
Clijsters has hinted at retirement after representing Belgium at the 2012 Olympics in London.
