Clijsters lifted the title in just her third tournament back after taking a two-year hiatus and although she rejoined the Grand Slam winners' club so swiftly, taking care of her daughter Jada remains the Belgian's priority.
“As a mother now, everything around you needs to be happy before I can go out there and play good tennis and be relaxed on the court,” Clijsters said.
“In the past you would have pushed yourself a little bit more in those kind of situations (when you are chasing ranking points) but that's something I'm not going to do.
Obviously, I've been through a lot of those situations and even now I'm not going to say ‘oh I want to be top 10 by the end of the year’. I'm just going to go home and make sure that I'm there for my sister when she has her baby in a few weeks,” she said.
