A “very very disappointed” Kim Clijsters has withdrawn from the 2011 Wimbledon Tennis Championships due to a foot injury she picked up at ‘S Hertogenbosch. The world number 2 ranked tennis player said

At this moment I feel frustrated that it has to happen now before one of my favourite tournaments. I’ve always enjoyed being a part of the Wimbledon atmosphere but I have no other choice now but to rest, recover and to not play tennis for a few weeks

– Kim Clijsters

The Wimbledon seeding system now makes world #1 Caroline Wozniacki (Denmark) the top seed, with Russian Vera Zvonareva becoming the new second seed, Li Na third, Victoria Azarenka fourth and former Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova fifth. Clijsters collected her fourth Grand Slam title earlier in the year, winning the Australian Open in January.
