Champagne for fans

BRUSSELS: Kim Clijsters will offer every fan at her Diamond Games home tournament this month a bottle of Champagne to celebrate reaching the No 1 ranking. It could be a costly gesture for the Belgian, who won’t play at the tournament because of the ankle injury that forced her to pull out of last week’s Australian Open semi-finals. She was to have been the main attraction at the February 13-19 tournament. — AP
