MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JANUARY 30: Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan of the USA hold aloft the championship trophy after winning their men's doubles final match against Daniel Nestor of Canada and Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia during day thirteen of the 2010 Australian Open at Melbourne Park on January 30, 2010 in Melbourne, Australia.

Four-time Grand Slam singles champion Clijsters' career ended Saturday, when she and Bob Bryan lost their second-round mixed doubles match at the U.S. Open to Ekaterina Makarova and Bruno Soares 6-2, 3-6, 12-10. Clijsters and Bryan saved four match points in the super-tiebreaker before Clijsters netted a return on the fifth. Clijsters, a 29-year-old Belgian, announced months ago the U.S. Open would be her last tournament. She lost to British teen Laura Robson in singles Wednesday, snapping Clijsters' 22-match winning streak at Flushing Meadows, where she won titles in 2005, 2009 and 2010. Clijsters and Kirsten Flipkens lost to Chuang Chia-jung and Zhang Shuai in the first round of women's doubles Thursday.
