BELGIAN Kim Clijsters, her injury comeback cemented last week with a triumph at Indian Wells, was primed to launch another run from the unseeded ranks at the WTA and ATP Masters Series tennis tournament. While 32 seeds in both the men's and women's brackets enjoyed the protection of first-round byes, Clijsters was to take on 150th-ranked German Sandra Kloesel in a first-round clash on stadium court, the winner advancing to face 24th seed Amy Frazier of the US.
Clijsters's unseeded status proved no hindrance at Indian Wells, where she defeated world number one Lindsay Davenport in the final to triumph at the very event where a wrist injury last year signalled the virtual end of her season.
