Clijsters to miss French Open

BRUSSELS -- Kim Clijsters will skip the French Open and clay-court season to focus on adapting to grass ahead of the London Olympics and Wimbledon.

The Belgian's recovery has been going more slowly than expected, after she tore a hip muscle last month during the Sony Ericsson Open in Florida. She will resume training in about three weeks.

Clijsters said Tuesday that "my current physical condition does not allow me to be ready for Roland Garros."

In her farewell season, Clijsters has focused on the Olympics. She will open her grass-court season at the Rosmalen tournament in the Netherlands starting June 17, one week before Wimbledon.

Tennis at the London Olympics starts July 28.
