Kim Clijsters: Girl Crush of the Week

I love Kim Clijsters for her calm assurance on the court and for playing professional tennis through ther early stage of motherhood. And now I love her for this awesome court-side interview , in which she nails Todd Woodbridge for texting someone to find out whether she is pregnant. "Let me say what was written in the message: 'She looks grumpy and her boobs are bigger,'" Clijsters says on TV. She is not pregnant. Just utterly at ease.
