Clijsters targets New York glory
Former world number one Kim Clijsters has said she hopes to end her tennis career by winning the Women's US Open for a fourth time.
The 29-year-old will bring the curtain down on a distinguished career, which also includes victory at the Australia Open in 2011 and reaching the final of the French Open twice, at the end of the year.
The Flushing Meadows showpiece will be the last chance for the Belgian to win a final Grand Slam and Clijsters hopes she can repeat her 2005, 2009 and 2010 successes.
The Queens event has been kind to her in the past and Clijsters, who first retired in 2007 and has won 41 WTA Tour titles, promised she was physically ready for another run in New York City.
"I'm in maybe the best shape that I have been in and my goal is to try and win the US Open," Clijsters said.
"I'm still focusing on trying to be in the best shape that I can be. My mindset is not any different and I really believe that physically I can do it."
