Maybe she had a run-in with Larry Scott similar to what Lindsay had in Montreal and the wildcard was taken away. Seriously, it does seem strange that nothing has been said. It's as if she never entered the tournament.

All I've heard is that she was one of many who withdrew, but they don't say why?

Ivanovic joins long list of absentees at Stuttgart tennis
The Associated Press

Published: October 2, 2006
STUTTGART, Germany Ana Ivanovic joined the long list of injury withdrawals from the Porsche Grand Prix tournament.

The Serb hurt her shoulder in practice Sunday and pulled out of the US$650,000 event starting Monday.

Other players who withdrew earlier included Kim Clijsters, Justine Henin-Hardenne, Maria Sharapova, Lindsay Davenport and Serena and Venus Williams.

Amelie Mauresmo is the top-seeded player, followed by Svetlana Kuznetsova, Elena Dementieva and Nadia Petrova. They all have a bye into the second round.

Nobody knows. Caroline Schneider said that nobody in Stuttgart knows a real reason

I dunno I just hope she's working hard wherever she is. I can't deal with another 2006, I thought last year was bad...this is disgusting.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

Lindsay Davenport never committed to this tournament in first place, right? She was signed up too late like Montreal?

holy shit. What a terrific line-up! Too bad we may never see all of them active at the same time
