Kuznetsova Withdraws From Charleston

Kuznetsova Withdraws From Charleston


Tennis Week
04/06/2007

Svetlana Kuznetsova is the latest former Grand Slam champion to withdraw from the Family Circle Cup field. The 2004 U.S. Open champion pulled out of next week's Tier I Charleston clay-court event citing a right wrist injury.


Kuznetsova joins top-ranked Justine Henin and former World No. 1 players Amélie Mauresmo and Maria Sharapova in withdrawing from Charleston.

"I am really disappointed to have to withdraw from the Family Circle Cup because of an injury to my right wrist," said Kuznetsova in a statement. "I was very much looking forward to playing this great event, and hope to be back next year. I am focused on recovering as quickly as possible so I can get back competing on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour."

The tournament still boasts 11 of the top 20 players, including reigning Australian Open and Miami champion Serena Williams. Martina Hingis and Venus Williams are also entered in the $1.34 million event.

I expected her to withdraw from this tournament after I read her Indian Wells press conference interview.

Gotta love these heartfelt withdrawal notes from the players.

Re: Kuznetsova Withdraws From Charleston

Ree, Vee, 'Tina, and Shahar

I think the field is still strong

I do think, however, it got THAT much easier for Ree to win another title

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

Re: Kuznetsova Withdraws From Charleston

This title will definetly go to a youngster now.

And no, not to Serena (Although that would have been classy).

Well Kuzy has really overplayed herself. I hope she recovers in time for the red clay.

Re: Kuznetsova Withdraws From Charleston

I'm sorry, but no way should Hingis be the top seed in a Tier I. That's just really bad.
