Kim Clijsters: Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements

Former World Number tennis player, Kim Clijsters announced her return to professional tennis on September 12, 2019, after she hit the sack in the year 2012. She will begin competing professionally from January 2020. 

Born on 8 June 1983, in a small town in northeastern Belgium, on Clijsters’ fifth birthday, her father built a clay tennis court at their home as a gift to his daughter. She was extremely energetic as a kid and held her first racquet at the age of five.

Her father was a footballer who represented Belgium and her mother was a gymnast, but Clijsters is known as four-time Grand Slam slam.

She has drawn a salary of USD 24,442,340 from the WTA circuit.

On-court achievements

Internationally on the junior circuit, Kim Clijsters had a successful run and she stepped on the WTA circuit at the age of 14 in 1997. She won her first WTA title in 1999 at Luxembourg Open.

During French Open 2001, Clijsters became the first Belgian to contest a Grand Slam singles final and over there she lost to Jennifer Capriati with 12–10 scoreline in the deciding set. The match was recognized as the greatest French Open women’s final in Open Era history.

In 2003, Kim Clijsters turned World Number one in both singles and doubles and simultaneously dwelled on both the pinnacles. After being hit with injuries, she finally made a Grand Slam breakthrough at US Open 2005.

Soon after her US Open 2010 title, Clijsters picked up the subsequent Grand Slam at Australian Open 2011 by defeating Li Na in finals.

She has won 41 WTA in singles and 11 doubles titles.
