Kim Clijsters Provides Us With The Luckiest Tennis Point You Will Ever See (Video)

Roger Federer may be the master of making the most incredible/impossible shots on a tennis court, but here is one shot that he couldn’t make.  Not even in one million attempts.

During the third set of her third-round match at the French Open against 20-year-old Arantxa Rus of Holland, Kim Clijsters returned a serve that somehow bounced off the top of the net, before hitting the top of the pole and bouncing in.  It was probably the luckiest point that the second-seeded Clijsters has ever won in her career.  However, that luck would be short-lived, as she would go on to lose the match to Rus in three sets, 6-3, 5-7, 6-1.

Here is a look at Clijsters’ lone bright spot during her third-round loss at the French Open.  She sure could have used more points like this one.
