Mary Pierce of France withdraws from Rogers Cup tennis tournament

10 minutes ago

TORONTO (CP) - Mary Pierce of France withdrew from the $1.3-million US Rogers Cup women's tennis tournament Tuesday due to a strained right quadriceps.

It's the same injury that forced her to drop out of the JP Morgan Chase Open in Los Angeles last week.

Pierce, the No. 8 seed in the tournament, is the fifth top-20 player to withdraw from the event in the past week.

"We support Mary's decision and wish her a speedy recovery," tournament director Stacey Allaster said in a statement.

Top-seeded Russian star Maria Sharapova backed out due to a strained chest muscle Sunday while American Venus Williams, ranked ninth in the world, withdrew last week due to the flu.

No. 13-ranked Australian Alicia Molik and No. 16 Russian Elena Bovina also withdrew last week due to injury.

Lucky loser Hana Sromova of the Czech Republic took Pierce's spot in the draw and received a bye into the second round.

Lucky Sromova lol. Too bad about Pierce, though not entirely unexpected. Winner of Fujiwara-Camerin much easier draw now.

Damn!
I thought her injury was just an exuse not to play LA!
How wrong was I?

I didn't blame her for the exuse, btw. That was logical to me.

Is it Mary's luck whenever she starts playing well she has a new injury. Like after she won French 2000.

Rika Fujiwara is breathing a huge sigh of relief! Playing Sromova is like a billion times better than Mary Pierce.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!
