Clijsters says 2011 could be last year on tour

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Kim Clijsters says 2011 is "probably going to be my last full season on the tour," a day ahead of her Australian Open singles final against China's Li Na.

When asked Friday if Saturday's final could be her last appearance at Melbourne Park, she replied: "Yeah, it is."

Clijsters only returned to the tour in late 2009 after a 2½-year break. She won the U.S. Open in her third tournament back and has won five singles titles in all since her return, including the 2010 U.S. Open.

When she won the 2009 U.S. Open, she became the first mother to win a Grand Slam singles title since Evonne Goolagong Cawley at Wimbledon in 1980. During her absence from the tour, she got married and had a daughter.
