Roland Garros Withdrawls: Update Thread(May 17th, 2004)

Found this article...we knew about Kim, here are some replacements.

Clijsters, Fish, Kafelnikov out of French
Belgian, U.S., Russian stars suffering from injuries

PARIS - Kim Clijsters withdrew from the French Open because of a lingering left wrist injury.

In a brief statement, the tournament said Wednesday the Belgian’s spot in the draw will go to Catalina Castano of Colombia.

Clijsters was the French Open runner-up in 2001 and 2003.

Other withdrawals announced Wednesday: 1996 French Open champion Yevgeny Kafelnikov and U.S. Davis Cup player Mardy Fish.

Kafelnikov, who is semiretired, will be replaced in the field by two-time Roland Garros finalist Alex Corretja, and Fish’s spot goes to Greg Rusedski.

Clijsters’ injury was first diagnosed two months ago as a stress reaction. Later, a half-inch tear was found in her left wrist. The former No. 1-ranked player is right-handed but uses a two-fisted backhand.

On Friday, Clijsters’ Web site said she would pull out of the year’s second Grand Slam tournament, which starts May 24. Her coach told a Belgian radio station she needs to take five weeks off.

Other players who pulled out of the French Open earlier: Paul-Henri Mathieu of France, Jarkko Nieminen of Finland, Rafael Nadal of Spain, Iroda Tulyaganova of Uzbekistan, and Alina Jidkova of Russia.

He's done some damage to his foot, possibly broken it. He's also out of the Olympics.

Get well soon to all injured players.

LOL at Kafelnikov in the headline. Semi-retired is a bit of an understatement - has he even played a match this year ?

As Venus won't be fully healed by then, I doubt she wants to risk an early upset (or aggravate the ankle B4 Wimby). I don't expect her Back B4 Eastbourne.

Kafelnikov is retired, not just semi

I hope Venus' ankle will be better by RG.
