Question Mauresmo Has A Rash From A Skin Allergy; She And Mary Withdrew From Olympic Doubles

Updated: 12:54 PM EDT

Navratilova, Raymond into quarters on walkover

ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Martina Navratilova and Lisa Raymond moved into the Olympic quarterfinals without hitting a shot Wednesday when Amelie Mauresmo and Mary Pierce of France withdrew from the doubles tournament.

Mauresmo said she couldn't play because she broke out with a rash from a skin allergy during a 6-3, 6-1 win over No. 16 Chanda Rubin of the United States earlier Wednesday.

Navratilova is playing in her first Olympics at age 47.

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

I don't buy this at all . She knows she has a great chance now at winning a gold medal so she just decided not to play doubles. I might be wrong, but if this rash doesn't heal and she plays singles tomorrow, then I'll be right.

ok you have to admit that 'acute rib injury' is a much better lie than 'rash from skin allergy'

Of course not.

If so, she will be confirmed as the most snakebitten woman on the tour.

She wasn't lying about the rib injury since she was out for a few weeks, but I don't buy this story.

OMG!!! Better not be true!!!

MARIA SHARAPOVA: "Amélie, you know it doesn't really matter at this point. I mean, I'd love to, I mean, Amélie is No. 1 in the world. She's playing great tennis. You know, I love that challenge of going out there and competing against the best in the world."
You'd love to what, Maria?

I don't think this is true at all. Rash injury?? Better come with something better whoever the author is...
Like a stupid rash would stop her when she is so close to her goal.

You don't come down with a rash during a match!

It's something you wake up with in the morning.

Everything you do continues long after you've gone
