Clijsters shines in comeback defeat by Garbine Muguruza
Kim Clijsters produced a remarkable display in her first WTA match in nearly eight years, which ended in a 6-2 7-6 (8-6) defeat by Australian Open finalist Garbine Muguruza in Dubai.
The Belgian, 36, went toe-to-toe with Muguruza from the baseline, produced several stunning winners and came from a double-break down in the second set.
But Muguruza finally saw off Clijsters with a big serve in the tie-break.
This is the Belgian’s second comeback, having first retired in 2007.
