Wimbledon (England), Jun 26: Kim Clijsters' last Wimbledon got off to a good start as she beat former No. 1 Jelena Jankovic of Serbia 6-2, 6-4 in the first round.






Clijsters is playing at the All England Club for just the second time in six years and has said she is retiring after this year's U.S. Open — this time for good, having returned to the sport in 2009 after a two-year break.

The 47th-ranked Belgian looked to have recovered fully from recent injuries, breaking the 18th-seeded Jankovic five times — including to love in the final game to clinch the victory.

She improved her record to 8-1 against Jankovic.
