It is a bit unusual for a 9 year old girl to be this clumsy.Of course this can be perfectly normal but it would be a good idea to make sure that her eyesight is normal. So have her eyes tested.This is obviously not something that she does deliberately so take it easy with her and try to encourage her not to rush things.
