Clijsters, the top-seeded woman in the joint WTA-ATP tournament at Queensland Tennis Centre, will face Australia's Alicia Molik in the second round.
"It was just a nice feeling to be out there again," the Belgian star said. "I am really happy that I'm here because it really makes the transition to Melbourne (site of the Australian Open) a bit easier."
Molik beat Russia's Ekaterina Makarova 6-4, 1-6, 6-4.
