Kim Clijsters is to make her tennis comeback at the age of 36 with a return to the WTA Tour in 2020.
The Belgian former world number one initially retired in 2007 to start a family, two years after winning her first Grand Slam at the US Open.
She returned in 2009 and won two more US Open titles and the Australian Open before her second retirement in 2012.
“I don’t really feel like I want to prove something. I think for me it’s the challenge,” Clijsters said.
As a former world number one, Clijsters is eligible for unlimited wildcards at WTA tournaments. She will need to play three tournaments or earn 10 ranking points to re-establish a ranking.
