Belgian Kim Clijsters, former world N.1, now 36, will return to competition in 2020, more than seven years after ending her career, she announced Thursday social networks.

Clijsters retired after the US Open 2012. "I've been a full-time mother for the last seven years, and I love it, but I've also loved being a professional tennis player. Frankly, I miss it, and if I tried both, let's go back again, "said Twitter's four-time Grand Slam winner, who had already interrupted his career for the first time between 2007 and 2009.
