Official: Ivanovic pulled out! Obziler replace her

http://www.itftennis.com/olympics/ne...rticleid=19105

Ivanovic is out

The battle for the women’s singles has been thrown wide open by the withdrawal of the French Open champion and top seed, Ana Ivanovic.

Ivanovic has a pain at the joint between the thumb and forefinger of her right hand. She first felt it when she practised after Wimbledon, and it has been getting worse in the weeks since. She says its refusal to respond to treatment means she may have to have it immobilised – her Australian doctor Grant Brent says this may mean a plaster cast – but she says it is too early for her to think of withdrawing from the US Open which begins a fortnight from now.

The Olympic women’s singles was already without a clear favourite, after the withdrawal of Maria Sharapova last month and the retirement of Justine Henin in May. Now without this week’s world No 1, it seems very much up for grabs, with the favourites now Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Svetlana Kuznetsova and the coming week’s new world No 1 Jelena Jankovic.

Smart move from Ana
I expect several other top-players (not Russians though ) to do the same.

That's too bad. Hopefully, she'll get better before the U.S. Open.
