Clijsters into Unicef Open quarters
Kim Clijsters advanced to the Unicef Open quarterfinals with an easy 6-2, 6-1 victory over Kateryna Bondarenko of Ukraine in Den Bosch, Netherlands, on Tuesday.
The win on grass a week ahead of Wimbledon was just Clijster's second since returning from a three-month hip injury. She lost the opening set to Romina Oprandi on Sunday and struggled in the second before taking control of that match.
"Bondarenko's playing style suits me a lot better," she said.
Clijsters played more aggressively and saved the only break point she faced.
