Lindsay out of Miami

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/4827072.stm

Lindsay Davenport has pulled out of the Nasdaq-100 tournament in Miami because of a back injury.
The American former world number one has a bulging disc in her lower back which hampered her at last week's Pacific Life Open in Indian Wells.

"I was hoping to have recovered in time (for Miami) but unfortunately I am not yet ready to play at the top of my game," said Davenport, 29.

Fellow American Serena Williams is also out of the event with a knee injury.

I, for one, am so happy to see this. Lindsay is clearly not healthy and she doesn't play well through pain. There is really no point in going to a tournament that she dislikes and traditionally gets hurt at anyway. If she wants to have a chance at a slam, she needs to rest and make sure she is 100% healthy.

Matt

Get well soon Lindsay!!!!

Completely agree

She needs 4-6 weeks to heal this back injury anyway - there was no point in going to Miami simply to aggravate it.

I'll miss Linds but you're right that she needs to recuperate. Linds

LOL. She never planned on playing it, let's be honest.

But anyway, I'm worried. I hope she can at least keep a top 5 seeding for Wimbledon.

Women's tennis sucks.

Ideally a top 4 seeding, but that looks very unlikely.

But really, it wouldn't make too much of a difference whether she's the number 5 or number 8 seed - she'd still get one of the top 4 seeds in the QFs.

If the studio gave me some piece of shit to do that I didn't want to do, I could always get a doctor's note. Laryngitis was my top one, second only to flu and nervous exhaustion. Sam Cohn never seemed to realize that I yelled at him the loudest when I was supposedly suffering from laryngitis!
