No. 8 Kim Clijsters beat No. 27 Maria Kirilenko 6-3, 6-3 in the third round of the Wimbledon Ladies’ Singles draw to advance to the fourth round in her first tournament at Wimbledon since 2006.
It was a fairly decent match with some nice shot-making by each, but ended with an ugly double fault by Kirilenko on match point.
Clijsters now awaits the winner of the match between No. 12 Nadia Petrova and No. 17 Justine Henin currently being played on Centre Court to see whom her opponent will be in a blockbuster fourth round match on Monday.
