Kim Clijsters will hobble into the semifinal against Wozniacki.


Defending Australian Open champion Kim Clijsters faces an anxious wait to find out the condition of her injured ankle after her remarkable win over China’s Li Na on Sunday. Clijsters rolled her left ankle midway through the first set of her 4-6 7-6 6-4 fourth-round victory, in a repeat of last year’s final at Melbourne Park. The Belgian saved four match points in staging a remarkable recovery after she had hobbled to her chair at 3-3 in the first set, after rolling her ankle during a baseline rally. Clijsters, who had her leg raised during her post-match press conference, said she did not know the extent of her injury or how it would heal before her quarter-final against either Caroline Wozniacki or Jelena Jankovic on Tuesday. “It’s only the first hour since I’m done. I’m taped already and I was fully covered in the ice bath for the ankle and everything,” she said. “I have the best people around me to take care of me and to make sure that this is hopefully not going to get any worse than it is now. “That’s why I’m sitting here with my leg up, to try and keep the swelling down as much as possible. We will see.”
