The 37-year-old Belgian's appearance at the March 22-April 4 Miami Open will mark her first competition since losing in the opening round of the U.S. Open last September.

My solution to rugby’s card issue

  My solution to rugby’s card issue I am sick of seeing players infringing because they know they are unlikely to be yellow carded. They are unlikely to be yellow carded because it is a first or second offence. They are then to be told they are now on a warning and that same thing will get them a yellow card. I understand the conundrum the referees are in. If they hand out yellow cards for the first offence, then players would pretty quickly accumulate two yellow cards, bringing up the whole red card game dilemma: that it ends up ruining the game as a contest and thus as a spectacle. The red card dilemma is being addressed.

Clijsters won the prestigious Miami title in 2005 and 2010, making her most recent appearance there in 2012. "We are very excited to have Kim returning to Miami ," said James Blake, tournament director of the Miami Open men's and women's event that runs from March 22-April 4. "She is a tremendous player and an even better person. She also won the Australian Open in 2011. Winner of 41 singles titles on the WTA tour, Clijsters has also accepted a wild card to compete in Charleston April 5-11.
