Barbie doll[edit]

Where's the mention she got a Barbie doll of herself and Jada? Regards, CapnZapp (talk) 22:47, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Ranking[edit]

Her current ranking is wrongly listed. She is No.3, not No. 2. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.231.190.218 (talk) 21:58, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Why protect this page[edit]

Some information is wrong: Wozniacki holds the record of number of weeks "Slamless" number one as she is number one since October 9th 2010. Besides this ridiculous record is demeaning. Please remove it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.66.210.36 (talk) 07:53, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Corrections to article Kim Clijsters[edit]

{{edit semi-protected}} http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Clijsters

1) correction needed in year section 1999

"She defeated tenth ranked Amanda Coetzer en route to the quarter finals"

should become

"She defeated tenth ranked Amanda Coetzer en route to the fourth round"

2) correction needed in last record tabular section under Records ("these records were attained in the Open Era of tennis)

August – November 2003 Most weeks at world #1 prior to winning first Grand Slam singles title (12) Stands alone

should be removed

because

i) info is incorrect: "record" is in hands of Wozniacki who has been number one now since October 9th 2010 (hence more than 12 weeks)

ii) Record is dubious in itself and hardly adds any credit to a player who has won 4 slams and became number one at different times throughput her career

Done. Thank you for framing the request correctly. Shearonink (talk) 15:33, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

2005 Coast To Coast Double[edit]

I think it's worth mentioning that she became only the second woman to win Indian Wells and Key Biscane back to back. Steffi Graf completed this feat before her in 1994 and 1996. Clijsters was unranked while doing so in 2005. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.177.226.220 (talk) 09:08, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Rivalries[edit]

Why are her matches against Vera Zvonareva mentioned in the rivalries section? For the Henin-Clijsters it's obvious why but for the Zvonareva-Clijsters it isn't. I mean she had more head-to-head against Lindsay Davenport (17), Amélie Mauresmo (15), Elena Dementieva (14) and Venus Williams (13). --Sofffie7 (talk) 09:46, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

equipment[edit]

What racquet adid she use prior to 1999? Also, what strings did she use? 24.33.93.239 (talk) 05:10, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
