Wimbledon: No. 8 Kim Clijsters Easily Through To Third Round

No. 8 Kim Clijsters is into the third round of Wimbledon for the first time since 2006 with a routine 6-3, 6-2 win over Croatian Karolina Sprem.

Sprem is most famous for beating Venus Williams in the second round of Wimbledon 2004, helped by a phantom point in the second set tiebreak in an incident often referred to as the “Sprem Donation.”

Clijsters should have a fairly easy go of things in her third round against the winner of Maria Kirilenko and Shenay Perry, but things get extremely tough in the fourth round against the winner of Petrova-Henin.
