Wimbledon: No. 17 Justine Henin Takes First Set 6-2 Against No. 8 Kim Clijsters

The much anticipated fourth round clash between Belgians No. 8 Kim Clijsters and No. 17 Justine Henin hasn’t delivered on its hype thus far.

Henin has been in control of the match from the word “Play!”, quickly going up a double break for 4-1 and holding on to take the set 6-2.

Henin slipped around the service line in the third game of the match, and though she led 4-1, took an injury timeout and received treatment on her right elbow.

As she has been known to do, Clijsters appears to be rushing through this match. If she doesn’t change something quickly, Clijsters could be making short work of herself.
