Karin Knapp out of Olympics, Santangelo in

Koubek, Knapp withdraw from Olympic tennis
The Associated PressPublished: July 15, 2008

LONDON: Austria's Stefan Koubek and Italy's Karin Knapp have withdrawn from the tennis tournaments at the Beijing Olympics because of injury.

The 31-year-old Koubek has a back injury and will be replaced by Australia's Chris Guccione in the men's singles competition, with Mara Santangelo replacing her fellow Italian in the women's singles.

Knapp, 21, hasn't played since losing to Maria Sharapova in the third round of the French Open last month.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There were some news on tennis webs here in Brazil about a month ago stating that Karin Knapp had to stop playing tennis because of some heart condition. Does anyone know anything about this? Just today a hungarian olympic champion died while training because of a heart stroke.

Re: Karin Knapp out of Olympics, Santangelo in

Why does Santangelo get in and not Garbin? Perhaps SR? I forget what Mara's is.

I hope that's not true about Karin and the heart condition.
