Citizen watches ambassador Kim Clijsters has confirmed that she will miss this year’s Wimbledon tournament.

The injury is the second suffered this year by Clijsters, after the first prevented her from playing in this year’s French Open. Clijsters sustained the new injury during her match against Romina Oprandi at the UNICEF Open in the Netherlands.

During the match, she skidded on the grass court and fell, twisting her right ankle which resulted in severe bruising and a tendon injury. The new injury is unrelated to her previous ankle problem and it is thought it could not have been prevented by the application of ankle tape.

The Citizen watches ambassador has been ordered to rest and will resume training in a month’s time to enable her to take part in this summer’s major US events such as the US Open, which takes place in late August. The event features Clijsters’ major sponsor Citizen watches as the official timekeeper.

Demand for sports fishing device sky-rockets after a hugely successful television campaign.

Sports-fishing has been revolutionized thanks to ZipCut® Pro, a new and innovative device designed to cut braided fishing lines. The product picked up incredible hype after joining forces with Creative Bube Tube to produce a television commercial which aired in August. The response has been huge and the demand overwhelming. Anyone with a fishing rod is learning that ZipCut Pro is a must-have fishing accessory.

The television commercial production company was approached by Marlin Gear Ltd., the makers of ZipCut Pro earlier this year and asked to help them produce a television commercial to expose the fishing community to their product. Over the next few months a script was devised and production was planned. The commercial was shot in Milton at Mill Pond, a local fishing hole with some beautiful scenery surrounding the water. Darren Scaravelli, Creative Director at Creative Bube Tube, remembers filming during late spring, “It was a beautiful place to film but it was freezing cold that morning. We had a nice blue sky and the sun was shining down on us though, which made for some of the greatest looking shots we’ve ever taken. It was a perfect location and right in our backyard too!”
