Pierce withdraws from Olympics

16/07 12h34 - JO 2008, Tennis Pierce n’ira pas
Mary Pierce ne participera pas aux Jeux Olympiques de Pékin.



Georges Goven a confirmé dans L’Equipe que Mary Pierce ne participera pas aux Jeux Olympiques de Pékin en août prochain. La Française, qui n’a plus joué depuis 2006, souffre toujours du genou. Amélie Mauresmo est sur la liste de la Fédération pour la remplacer mais l’ancienne n° 1 mondiale a déjà fait savoir qu’elle n’ira pas en Chine. Si elle confirme son absence, Pauline Parmentier s’envolera pour Pékin.




Pierce won't go
Georges Goven confirmed in the newpaper l'Equipe that Mary Pierce won't play at the Olympic Games of Pekin, in August 2008.

The Frenchwoman, who hasn't played since 2006, is still suffering of her knee.

Amelie Mauresmo is on the French Federation list but the former number one in the world already withdrew. If she confirms this withdrawal, Pauline Parmentier will fly to Pekin.

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

Had she made this decision sooner, Amelie wouldn't have withdrawn

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

Mary should just retire and stop being so delusional about a thunderous comeback because it won't happen.

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics


I guess she won´t come back...similar to Capriati
She´s 33 now...and I think it´s time for her to say good-bye
She´s out now for almost 2 years

Re: Pierce withdraws from Olympics

What is the explanation about Amelie? I missed that. Why wasn't she playing if Mary was, but if Mary is out Amelie would play?
