U.S. Open 2012 Tennis Scores: Kim Clijsters Advances In Final Grand Slam

Belgian Kim Clijsters has advanced through the opening round in her last Grand Slam tournament, defeating 16-year-old American Victoria Duval. Clijsters had little trouble with Duval, winning in straight sets, 6-3, 6-1.

The young Duval, playing in her first U.S. Open, was unable to post a single ace against Clijsters. Duval also struggled on her second serve, winning just 13% of those points. Clijsters was in control for much of the match, amassing five aces and winning 83% of her first-serve points.

The fan-favorite Clijsters has won three U.S. Open singles titles, her most recent coming in 2010. The 29-year-old has already announced that she will retire from tennis at the end of the year, making the U.S. Open the final time she will compete for a Grand Slam title.
