TENNIS ACE KIM Clijsters is a major doubt for next month’s French Open after injuring her ankle while dancing at her cousin’s wedding.
The second-best female player in the world will be out for up to a month-and-a-half. It’s unknown which song was playing at the time.
A statement on her website reads: “Kim has injured her ankle. She won’t be able to compete for four to six weeks.”
“Her participation in the French Open is no longer certain.
“At the wedding party of her cousin Tim, Kim injured her ankle severely. The consequences are rather dire. Kim’s ankle is now completely immobilised and she cannot use her foot for a few days.”
She must have some pretty sweet moves – let’s hope she recovers in time for Paris.
Clijsters, of course, is not the first athlete to pick up an injury, away from the action.
