Clijsters escapes car accident, advances to final at WTA Champs

Kim Clijsters is a wife, mother, caretaker and tennis player. You didn't think a little car accident would derail her?

The three-time U.S. Open champion was involved in a minor accident on Saturday while she and her manager were driving to her semifinal match at the WTA Championships in Doha, Qatar. A truck "came out of nowhere" and hit the car on a roundabout.

"Obviously, it was a little bit of a shakeup. We're all fine," Clijsters said after the match. "I was really just kind of trying to kind of switch my mental state and focus on the match.

Kim and Bob Verbeeck escaped unharmed. The car wasn't so fortunate.

Clijsters won her semifinal match against Sam Stosur and will play No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki in Sunday's final.
