If their report is accurate, that explains their DEFINITE absence from doubles. It was noticed also Babsi Rittner wasn't in the draw either.

Davenport, Capriati, Molik, Golovin, Seles, Clijsters, Myskina, Dementieva, Groenefeld, Frazier, Sprem, Hantuchova, Peschke, Dulko, Ivanovic, Smashnova, Likhovtseva, Vaidisova, Zvonereva, Schiavone, Pennetta

According to Eurosport.com, she has a left foot injury.

No further details, though

That's a shame, I hope she returns soon.

martina Hingsi lost again; and what happens: oh no she's injured again. It's always the same with her: if she loses she blames it on a injur: see Miami 2002 and others

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

The consequences of this withdrawal are that she will fall to at least #7 next week. I doubt she would bring that on herself just because she lost to the World #1.

Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100

Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1

Jennifer Capriati : 3 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1

Sorry to hear that.

I was anticipating so much a Hingis-Henin contest.

POOR MARTI!!!!

She just needs her confidence back and stop being pressured to much. She needs to take one tournament at a time. She is too pressured of the coming RG.

Thumbs down

Bummer. That's going to weaken the draw a bit.

And poor Barbara seems snakebitten. No sooner does she recover from one injury than she gets another.

Well, if Martina withdraws because of the injury, then probably because she let the doubles trophy of BBC slip and it fell on her foot.
She was completely okay today.

That doesn't surprise me too much. She probably has some foot problem but basically just wants to practice more. Hopefull she will be fully recovered for Italian Open or at least the French. She really is taking a different approach this year not playing so many tourneys and taking care of her body as much as possible.

tennisfun,

just because I have manners doesn't mean I am fake. It's Venus's waves to the crowds which are fake.
