Four-time Grand Slam title winner Kim Clijsters said goodbye to Wimbledon for the final time, taking away a lifetime of memories from a tournament she likened to Disneyland

“It all started from when I was a youngster, being at home, watching Wimbledon during summer holidays in Belgium, watching it on TV,” said Clijsters on Monday.

“You just kind of felt the magic coming through the television. Then as I got older, when I was able to be here for the first time as a junior, it was just very special. This was like Disneyland to another child. It was such a beautiful thing.”
