Kim Clijsters has become the first female athlete to be immortalized by Barbie, the internationally recognized doll with the impossible proportions.
Her likeness was unveiled at the largest toy fair in Nuremburg, Germany along with a mini-Barbie of daughter Jada.
Kimmie expressed her excitement about the dolls saying,
"When I was a young girl I played with my Barbie dolls all the time and took them with me everywhere I went. I am therefore deeply honoured and humbled as I today join the ranks of iconic women who represent Barbie's aspirational values.
"My family means everything to me, so I was really excited when I found out that Jada would also receive her very own "Jada" Barbie doll. This is something that is very special to me and my family and we will cherish it for life."
She joins Oprah Winfrey, Sally Ride, Melinda Gates, Angela Merkel, Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe as famous women who've been "Barbied."
Honestly, the only likeness of the U.S. Open champ I see is the blond hair and Fila duds. Nice stems though.
Jada actually looks more spot-on than Kimmie especially the bushy hair, round face and striped sweater. Cute.
