Organizers of Olympic Games in China NOT happy about the situation in tennis....

I've just read few articles about tennis tournament In Beijing and many withdraws from the competition. Apparently organizers are not happy because of this and they want medical statements from every national medical team of each player who pulled out or thinking to withdraw. If medical team proves that player is not able to play they'll respect that otherwise organizers will report a player to Olympic Committee...
Just read also that Jankovic is thinking of pulling out as well...

What happens once they get reported to the Olympic Committee ?

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

tennis will be pulled out or probably open for only non-pro players?
i don't mind to see the players like Elena Baltacha & Kristina Barrois playing in the final of London 2012 if only they are fully commited to the tournament.

evidently they are not used to dealing with such unprofessional athletes. they are used to dealing with people who follow through on their commitments.

Re: Organizers of Olympic Games in China NOT happy about the situation in tennis....

It´s obvious where this leads to. And I fully support that.

If professionals earnings millions of dollars in their sport get injured and just go for the games opening ceremony and the experience for 4-5 days of being in the village knowing that they are in danger of withdrawing, they make the draws a joke if withdrawing the last minute.

If players know they are in danger of not being able to play, stay at home and allow others to go BEFORE a draw is made.

If they cannot re-arrange the seedings, top or bottom halfs of draws get ridiculous.

I support Davenport and Niemayer who support doubles by withdrawing from singles, but the withdrawal of Ivanovic as this was very clear days ago is sad for tennis. She would have allowed another player to go to the Olympics.

They should be glad that the Chinese players have more chances to win a medal in the Olympics.

I don't understand why these athletes commit, make the trip, walk in the opening ceremonies, and THEN decide to pull out.

Seems pretty selfish to me.
