Watson's Water Challenge - Amélie withdraws, Serena gives up Singles!

Very bad news for Amélie, Serena and Hong Kong! According to today's local newspaper, Amélie is still hurt by muscle strain, while Serena has not recovered fully from her stomach injury. Serena will still come to play doubles with Venus.

We now welcome - Vera Zvonareva!

The new singles draw is as follows -
Red Group - Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva, Nicole Vaidisova
Green Group - Svetlana Kuznetsova, Venus Williams, Vera Zvonareva

This will be a round robin tournament with the top player from each group squaring off in the final.

The opening match on Wednesday is Maria v Lena D. Venus will play first on Thursday and the Williamses will play right afterwards.

I'm glad that they picked another russian to play
Nicole got the chance to play single. I hope she can kick some ass because she is the one to watch this year.

Unhappy

I think it is smart for Serena to not play singles if she is still suffering from the strain. Venus made the mistake of plyaing singles and doubles at Wimbledon in 2003 and it cost her the rest of the season and I think it affected her a little when she came back. Unless Serena suffers something more serious, then she could miss the AO again this year. However, Amelie's injury sounds a little more serious. I hope she will be able to play at the AO.

This sucks, the season hasn't started and already jen, lindsay, and now serena and amelie have some injuries of some sort. I really do hope that is is more precautionary for all of them than real serious. Get well ladies.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

RIDING THE 3AM ROLLERCOASTER

Anastasia Myskina my NO.1 favourite.
Daniela Hantuchova super eyecandy!
Emilie Loit heartbreaker.
Alize Cornet she's just 15!
Elena Dementieva pretty!

As far back as the beginning of December, Amélie said she would probably be going straight to Melbourne for the AO, rather than playing any warm-ups. From that, and what I've read (according to the Dec. 30th L'Equipe, she was flying directly to Australia on January 8th), the exo was never mentioned, so I kinda figured she wouldn't show up. What's a little disturbing is that they mentioned an injury

I hope Momo and Serena are healthy and rarin' to go at the AO

AMÉLIE ALWAYS

Why they don't ask Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario to play singles?
