Red face Kuznetsova out of Bali

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) -- World No. 1 Lindsay Davenport will welcome a change of pace when she lines up as top seed for the Wismilak International tennis tournament starting Monday on Indonesia's tourist island of Bali.

Defending champion Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia was forced to withdraw from the tournament while she recuperates from a back injury she sustained during a loss to Gisela Dulko at Toronto last month. Kuznetsova went on to slump out of the first round of the US Open.

Davenport, who suffered a quarterfinals defeat at the hands of Elena Dementieva at the US Open last week, will head a lineup that includes, Switzerland's Patty Schnyder, Australia's Alicia Molik and Jelena Jankovic of Serbia-Montenegro.

Also competing in Indonesia will be India's Sania Mirza, who has enjoyed the fastest rise of any player on the WTA Tour this year, and 10-time grand slam winner Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario of Spain.

The 18-year-old Mirza beat the world No. 5 Kuznetsova at Dubai in March and last week reached the fourth round of the US Open, losing to Maria Sharapova.

Wild cards into the main draw were awarded to Indonesia's Wynne Prakusya, replacing Angelica Widjaja, who is absent due to an injury, and Virginia Ruano Pascual of Spain.

Davenport, 29, receives a bye in the opening round and will play either Japan's Rika Fujiwara or Natalie Grandin of South Africa in the second round.

Also receiving a first round bye is second seed Schnyder.

Arantxa and Sveta were to play doubles here, so obviously ASV had to withdraw too. Pity

That back injury came at a bad time for Sveta, right before the US Open.
But she never used it as an excuse.
I knew she was hurting, but she never admits to injuries.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
