Belgian champion enjoying tennis more than ever

7:42 am on 6 September 2010

The defending champion Kim Clijsters is through to the US Open quarter-finals, saying she's enjoying her tennis more than ever.

27 year old Clijsters capped a comeback to the game by winning at Flushing Meadows last year, and she underlined her enjoyment by outclassing the former world number one Ana Ivanovic from Serbia 6-2 6-1 in less than an hour to extend her winning run in New York to 18 matches.

The dual champion and third seed Venus Williams came through a much tougher match against Israel's Shahar Peer 7-6 6-3.
