Former World No.1s Andy Roddick and Kim Clisters were last night inducted into the tennis hall of fame.

Clijsters, a winner of four Grand Slam titles, won a total of 41 career titles over her 15-year career.

“It is a huge honour to be amongst a list of so many great tennis players who I admired when I was growing up, and some great players who I played with in my tennis career as well,” Clisters said.
