Where is Elena Baltacha?

I'm British and I haven't heard what's up with her - injured? Someone standing behind me at Eastbourne said she had retired. Anyone?

Back surgery sidelines Baltacha

British number two Elena Baltacha will not play again until 2007 after opting to undergo back surgery.

The 22-year-old world number 210 will attempt to remedy her long-term back problem by having surgery on a prolapsed disc on Wednesday.

Baltacha said: "I'm very disappointed that I require surgery, but I'm optimistic I'll make a full recovery."

Baltacha reached the third round of the 2005 Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2002 before her injury problems.

The Ukrainian-born player achieved a career-best world ranking of 118 in March 2005 and her coach Alan Jones is confident she will improve following her recuperation.

"She has a huge amount of potential and I believe as a player, that she is capable of being competitive at the top level," Jones said. "Bally is still only 22 but her physical age on court is that of a 19 or 20-year-old, so time is definitely on her side."

Following surgery, Baltacha will spend two months in recovery with a further two in rehabilitation.
