Back in the rankings at no. 19, previously unseeded Kim Clijsters celebrates her U.S. Open win in Times Square with husband Brian Lynch and their daughter Jada Ellie, 18 months.
The Belgian tennis star, 26, heads back to her home country today, but plans to return to the States soon — she and husband Brian, an American, recently purchased a home in New Jersey.
Of her win, the first for a mother at a Grand Slam event in 29 years, Kim said,
“I really believe anything is possible but it is a family affair. I also need help from family and people around me but it’s a great feeling to know that I can combine the sport that I love but also be a mum as well — it’s great.”
