Interesting to watch her play Caty McNally. They look alike.

Suspicious of athletes who keep retiring and unretiring.

"I don't feel like I need to prove anything, but I want to challenge myself and I want to be strong again," she said. "Let's see if I can get my body in shape to play tennis at a level where I would like it to be at, that I have in mind of where I would like to get to, and see if it's possible. To see, first of all, if my body is capable of even doing that."

I'm guessing divorce is around the corner too. She's bored.

Really? She made a lot of money and still brings in an income.

The WTA said that as a former top-ranked player Clijsters can receive unlimited wild cards at its tournaments.

She'd be better off then starting a business because that has longevity. Her return to the WTA can only last a couple of years at best. For me, unretiring just means she needs to get out of the house and her roles.

Two words: Bad idea
"Never argue with an idiot - they take you down to their level and then beat you on experience"

"Don't wrestle with a pig: you both get dirty, but the pig actually likes it"
