Jada Lynch danced around the US Open trophy as a tousle-haired toddler when her mum Kim Clijsters won at Flushing Meadows in 2009. These days, not so much.
“She is not a big fan of tennis,” confesses former No.1 Clijsters, now a mother of three, with an almost apologetic laugh. “She loves basketball. We [went] to see Melbourne United play, went to some of their practice games. She loves it. I’m splitting my time between basketball for her and tennis stuff for myself.”
So husband Brian Lynch, a former basketballer, has won over their first born. But what about their boys, Jack and Blake? Does the four-time major winner have any influence there?
“We’ll see,” she demurs.
