Kim Clijsters Celebrates Win With Her Daughter

Tennis pro Kim Clijsters celebrated her US Open victory in New York this weekend with her biggest little fan: Her two-year-old daughter Jada. What a doll!

Beating Russian player Vera Zvonareva in straight sets at Arthur Ashe Stadium, this is Kim's second US Open win in as many years. She's made an amazing comeback since returning to the sport in 2009 after taking a 2-year break to focus on motherhood.


Kim Clijsters Has Kid, Will Travel

Tennis pro Kim Clijsters has a small entourage in tow these days as she travels to tournaments around the world - namely, her 2-year-old daughter Jada.

"It's definitely a lot more busy," the 27-year-old says. "In the past, whenever I was done with practicing or massage or treatment or working out, I had all the time to myself and now I'm sharing that with Jada. But it's a pleasure having her around and I wouldn't change it for the world."


Kim Clijsters Donates Prize Money To Children’s Hospital

Tennis pro Kim Clijsters proved herself to be a champ on and off the court last night when she donated her $37,000 winnings at the Brisbane International in Australia to Brisbane's Royal Children's Hospital.

Kim, who is mom to 17-month-old daughter Jada, reveals she was inspired to make the donation after spending some time with the young patients at the hospital last week.

"It changes you, it stuck with me for days," the 26-year-old says of her visit. "It's terrible to see kids (suffering). There were boys and girls Jada's age, 17 months and three years old, with brain tumours and everything. You wonder how it was possible for a young baby like that and it's not easy."

The Belgium-born athlete says that she hopes her "small amount" will inspire others to give what they can as well.

"It's a small amount but hopefully it can help other people and other people can see it that it's a good thing and hopefully other people can donate. Maybe in the long run it can really help."
