Henin Bows Out of German Open Due to Viral Infection

BERLIN (April 22) -- World No. 1 tennis player Justine Henin-Hardenne will not take part in next month's German Open because of a viral infection, organizers said Thursday.

The Belgian, who withdrew from the Family Circle Cup in Charleston earlier this month, has been ordered to rest by doctors and has decided not to enter the May 3-9 tournament in Berlin.




The 21-year-old is due to defend her crown at the French Open starting on May 24 in Paris.

Former world No. 1 Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario of Spain, who played the German Open 12 times and won it in 1995, will make her comeback this year in the doubles competition.

Organizers said the 32-year-old, who plans to play at the Olympics in Athens in August, had been granted a wild card.

No surprise. I have been saying that for days.

I hope she gets better soon.

So for now, Kim is the top seed, but I expect that to change and either Amelie or Venus will be the top seed as I don't expect her to play either.

Though I was desperately hoping to see her in person in Berlin...*sooo sad right now*...I am pretty happy to see taking the time out to get back to 100 percent health.

Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario wants a WC to play doubles in Berlin? Interesting. At least Anca Barna made it to the main draw due to Justine´s withdrawal...nice...lol
