Clijsters says farewell to SW19
Kim Clijsters said she had no regrets when making a disappointing Wimbledon 2012 exit in straight sets on Monday.
The Belgian, who will retire from the sport after the upcoming Olympics, also in SW19, and US Open in New York City later this year, lost 6-1 6-1 to German eighth seed Angelique Kerber, who will now play compatriot and Maria Sharapova conqueror Sabine Lisicki in the quarter-finals. The two-time Wimbledon semi-finalist and four-time Grand Slam winner said she left with her head held high and admitted Kerber was the deserved winner. "I know that every time I've played here I've given my best, and that's the only thing that I can do," said Clijsters, a veteran of eight Wimbledon tournaments. "I'll never say that I didn't work hard enough or I didn't practise hard enough. I don't think I'll feel sorry about anything when I leave."
