In an interview with the Guardian, Kim Clijsters says she is actively planning to stop following the London Olympics and then try for a second child.
 
"[W]e do want to have more children... I'd like to try and keep the tennis going until the Olympics in London, at which point Jada will be obligated to go to school," said Clijsters. "So that's when I'll probably be calling it quits and just focus on the family.
 
"Together with a friend of mine, I've bought a tennis club in Belgium -- actually the club where I practice at in Bree," she added. "We're going through the process of rebuilding it, so when I retire from tennis, that's something that will interest me very much."
