    Belgium’s Kim Clijsters training to get back into top-level tennis is already well underway, with an Instagram video giving a look into her routine.

    A video – posted on the Instagram page of the Kim Clijsters Acadamy – shows Clijsters playing tennis alongside the caption “look who’s back.”

    Clijsters, 36, had announced that she will return to the Women’s Tennis Association tour in 2020.
