Thigh injury spoils eagerly awaited Schnyder-Williams match

Thigh injury spoils eagerly awaited Schnyder-Williams match

The good news is that the home nation has a player, Patty Schnyder, in the second round of the Zurich Open. The bad news is that it was no contest and Serena Williams, playing her first singles in Zurich for 10 years, was so hampered by a thigh injury that she didn’t win a game and retired after just half an hour. Schnyder won 6-0 3-0 as Williams retired injured after giving herself a lot longer on court than many people would have expected.

“I got here yesterday,” Williams said afterwards, “and I was feeling really good. Then just before the match, as I was warming up, I felt something go. I got the trainer to strap it, and I thought I’d be able to play through it, but it just didn’t work.”

Williams, whose run to the final in Moscow last week guaranteed her a place at the Sony Ericsson Championships in Madrid, must now hope the thigh strain heals in the three weeks she has available. Schnyder, meanwhile, moves on to play the winner of the Wednesday afternoon match between Elena Dementieva and Francesca Schiavone.

“I feel a bit sorry for Serena,” said the Swiss, “but I’ve had so many tough draws in recent weeks that I was well geared up for playing her. I felt I played a very good match, even if the opposition wasn’t at the level we were all expecting.”

Elsewhere, Amélie Mauresmo won her first match for four tournaments when she beat Eleni Daniilidou 6-4 4-6 6-3 to keep alive her slim chances of qualifying for Madrid. Among the other winners on day two of the Zurich Open’s main draw were Agnieszka Radwanska who beat the US Open quarter-finalist Shahar Peer.
