Rubin To Make Comeback At Moorilla Hobart International

Not sure if this has been posted, but it is confirmed in this article from tennisaustralia website.

After missing the majority of the 2005 season with knee and ankle injuries, 1999 Moorilla Hobart International champion, Chanda Rubin from the USA will be back to try and re-establish herself as one of the world’s best players. With a career-high singles ranking of No.6, Rubin has dropped down to 544 on the world rankings, but will use a special injury protected ranking of 29 to be the second seed for the tournament.

I guess protected ranking is always there to help top players having injured to get into Main Draws, what I doubt is whether the protected seeding still exists.

I'm sure she played Cinci, she got a wildcard I think. I looked up her activity on WTA site and she also played FO qualifying (losing first round to Mattek ) and losing first round at Strasbourg to Zheng. Hopefully she'll come back strong this year, for one (or more ) last solid year on tour.

Whoa, protected seeding is BACK!

This also means that Capriati will be seeded at the start of her comeback. I believe her protected rank is 11 or something like that.

Unless the article is wrong.

And Chanda is back!
