Kim Clijsters beats Romina Oprandi on injury comeback
Kim Clijsters marked her return from injury with victory over Romina Oprandi in round one of the Unicef Open in 'S-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands.
The former world number one, a four-time Grand Slam champion, had been out since March with a hip injury but came through 6-7 (5-7) 6-2 6-3.
In her defeat by Oprandi at last year's event, Clijsters suffered an ankle injury that saw her miss Wimbledon.
The Belgian will face Sara Errani or Kateryna Bondarenko in round two.
