A wrist injury has forced world number two Kim Clijsters to pull out of Wimbledon. The world number two was also forced to pull out of the French Open after failing to recover from a torn tendon.
 

"It's healing slowly but there's no way I would be able to give myself a chance of competing there at the level I need to be at," she said. Clijsters had been in good form until her injury, winning back-to-back tournments in Paris and Antwerp. But her coach Marc Dehous told VRT radio "Now a cyst has developed on the wrist that means that we can kiss Wimbledon goodbye."

Clijsters had been due to compete at next week's Hastings Direct International Championships at Eastbourne.

She will be replaced as top seed by French Open winner Anastasia Myskina.

She has been playing real good tennis and this comes at a bad time for her. She would have had chances in both tournaments, lets hope she can get back on the court soon.
