Clijsters Completes Dream Run, Wins 2009 US Open

Wildcard Kim Clijsters, defeated 9th-seed, Caroline Wozniacki, 7-5, 6-3, to win the 2009 US Open title, after only one month from her return to professional tennis. The Belgian, who quit tennis in 2007, got married and had a baby (which was the star of the night I must add), before she decided to show up again on tour, only to find out that staying away that long wasn't such a big deal afterall.

Clijsters beat both Serena and Venus Williams en route to the title, and now has 2 US Open titles to her name, since she had previously won back in 2005.

Kim just proved to everyone that you can really have it all. If Sunday's US Open triumph isn't inspirational to everyone, I don't know what is... Congratz Kim!!
