US OPEN 2009: Clijsters Wins 2nd Major Title

26-year-old Belgian Kim Clijsters became the first mother (of Jada Lynch) in nearly 30 years to win a major tennis title, her second in 6 attempts, by defeating 19-year-old Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark 7-5 6-3.

Clijsters won her second US Open four years after her first, following a 2 and a half year long "retirement" from the sport in which she got married, got pregnant, had a kid and buried her father. She now has a 14-match winning streak in New York.
