Dementieva was injured in Miami?

Dementieva retires from second-round match at Bausch & Lomb4/7/04 10:27 PM


AMELIA ISLAND, Florida (AP) _ Defending champion Elena Dementieva quit her second-round match Wednesday in the Bausch & Lomb Championships because of strained right hip.

The fifth-seeded Russian lost the first set 7-6 (5) and was trailing Croatian Jelena Kostanic 1-0 in the second when she retired from the $585,000 tournament.

Dementieva said she was injured last week at the Nasdaq-100 Open. Still, she advanced to the final Saturday, but lost to Serena Williams.

``It was too painful today on the court and it was getting worse during the match,'' Dementieva said. ``I knew I had to stop because I couldn't finish the match. It's very tough to win on clay courts because you have to run.''

Dementieva upset Justine Henin-Hardenne in last year's Bausch & Lomb semifinals and Lindsay Davenport in the finals to win one of her three titles in 2003.

Most of the other top seeds had the day off. The exception was No. 3 seeded Amelie Mauresmo who breezed to a 6-0, 6-3 win over Akiko Morigami of Japan.

Two other seeds were losers.

No. 13 Anna Smashnova-Pistolesi of Israel lost to Barbora Strycova of the Czech Republic 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (1), and 15th-seeded Magdalena Maleeva of Bulgaria fell to Karolina Sprem of Croatia 6-2, 6-4.

In other matches: seventh-seeded Nadia Petrova of Russia beat Milagros Sequera of Venezuela 6-1, 6-0; No. 9 Paola Suarez of Argentina topped Shinobu Asagoe of Japan 6-4, 6-3; No. 10 Silvia Farina Elia of Italy downed Virginia Ruano Pascual of Spain 6-1, 6-1; No. 16 Conchita Martinez of Spain ousted compatriot Anabel Medina Garrigues 6-3, 6-4, and Alicia Molik of Australia topped Arantxa Parra of Spain 6-3, 6-4.

I'm not sure I believe her. She certainly didn't look injured, although I missed the final

Dang, not good, just when the tour seems to be getting back to normal. Hope it is not too serious! all the best.
Elena's good run at Miami was lost under the drama of what she said after Venus match and the fact that Serena had made an incredible coemback. This was by far the beat tourny she had played all year. She seems to have finally gotten her act together noew this!

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Could be the injury started in Miami and just continued to get worse.

She actually pulled out of Indian Wells with the shoulder injury so she's had it for a while.

You find somebody's injury funny? Just what I expected from a sick twisted bitch like yourself.

Except that she pulled out of Amelia Island because of a hip strain.

I saw the final, she did look like maybe she had some kind of discomfort, I guess she could have gotten the injury and it worsened as the week went by.

That actually explains. I thought that she was moving that badly in the Miami finals because of nerves and fatigue. If she already had strain hip, than it really explains..
