“I’m very happy to again be the World No 1 player here,” the 27-year-old said during an on-court presentation.

Kim Clijsters will become world No 1 next week for the first time since 2006 after beating Jelena Dokic to reach the Paris Open semi-finals. The Australian Open champion has gained enough ranking points to go above Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki, who is not in action this week. Top seed Clijsters swept aside Dokic 6-3 6-0 to book a semi-final berth and wrest the WTA number one spot from Wozniacki. Clijsters wrapped up the first set when Dokic fired into the net and struck some superb winners in the second as her opponent fell to pieces.

The Belgian has been world number one three times before, twice in 2003 and once in 2006. She retired to have a child in 2007 before making a stunning return to tennis. Victory in the 2009 US Open came only weeks after her comeback and she has since added last year’s Flushing Meadows title and last month’s Australian crown to her list of grand slams.

“I’m very happy to again be the World No 1 player here,” the 27-year-old said during an on-court presentation. “It’s not in Belgium but it’s very close. Thanks for all your support. I hope I can maybe win the tournament too.”
