Clijsters to return from injury at French Open
Kim Clijsters has confirmed she will make her comeback from a two-month injury layoff.

Paris: World number two Kim Clijsters has confirmed she will make her comeback from a two-month injury layoff at the French Open, the Belgian said on Monday.

"I will be able to take part as long as I have some very tight strapping on my ankle," the 2001 and 2003 finalist said in a statement on the official Roland Garros website.

Clijsters suffered shoulder and wrist problems before injuring her ankle at her cousin's wedding and had been a doubt for the clay grand slam having only started light training again at the start of May.

Her decision to compete was a welcome boost for the French Open following a string of injury withdrawals including Serena and Venus Williams and Dinara Safina.
