Clijsters, Hewitt announce engagement

December 24, 2003 09:31 IST

World number two Kim Clijsters announced her engagement to boyfriend Lleyton Hewitt, a twice Grand Slam champion, on her official website on Tuesday.

Clijsters and Hewitt"Lleyton has surprised me," said 20-year-old Belgian Clijsters, who became the first Belgian to be ranked the game's top player in August this year.

"He invited me for dinner on a boat and suddenly unveiled a ring and earrings. I didn't know what hit me, but I'm very happy about it.

"In Australia, being engaged means a lot," added Clijsters, who won nine WTA Tour titles this year. "But there are no concrete plans (for a wedding date). But I'm extremely happy with my early Christmas present."

Australian Hewitt, the men's world number 17, won the U.S. Open in 2001 and last year's Wimbledon crown.
