“I’m not really playing for the money. I just want to go out there and have fun. I really missed it so much…”

I’m in love with Kim Clijsters. The US Open is only the third tournament of her comeback since becoming a new mother. She last played two and a half years ago.

Now she’s back.

I wasn’t a big fan of hers before her break, but after watching her play and upset Venus Williams yesterday, I am totally in love with her. She’s doing all the right things.

She is going all out.
She is having fun.
She knows it isn’t life or death.

After the match you could see how emotional she was, but also had things in perspective. She didn’t need to win. But she wanted to win.

And Clijsters knew she had a chance. Here is her “tweet” just before her match…

“On our way to the courts now. Feeling excited! There’s been a lot of upsets in the women’s draw, hopefully I can pull one today too!”

I know it’s a bold prediction, but I think that Kim Clijsters will win the US Open.

Time will tell.

Happy Labor Day everyone!
