Whether it's starting a family or starting a business, Kim Clijsters and Venus Williams have figured out how to make life about more than hitting a fuzzy green ball.
As for that tennis part -- well, things are going pretty well there, too.
In the featured semifinal at the U.S. Open on Friday, Clijsters tries to stay on track for her second straight title after a 2 1/2-year layoff during which she got married and had a baby girl, Jada.
Not a bad second act.
The 27-year-old Belgian is trying to become the first woman to win back-to-back at Flushing Meadows since 2000-01 when Williams did it.
