petrova always gets injured in during the australian leg of the season, didn't she retire from gold coast and sydney last year (sydney was for heat stroke though i think....) anyway being a walkover maybe she was taking precautions so she can play AO. quite unfortunate actually seeing that she always plays well down here yet always gets an injury.
