Serena withdraws from Paris.

Injuredrena doesn't want to take any risks. Dementieva becomes the top seed now.
Paris' field looks ridiculously cheap. Thankfully Amélie will have some farewell celebration on Wednesday which could draw spectators there. Otherwise this year's edition doesn't seem very exciting.

Just to make it clearer :http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/breves2...s-forfait.html

Re: Serena withdraws from Paris.

So much for her hitting partners being in Paris.

Serena n'habite pas ŕ Paris cette année.

Wow, but not surprised.

Rezai has a better chance now, Hope she can pull out a win.

Re: Serena withdraws from Paris.

Nope, since it's not a mandatory tournament. She'll only lose last year's points.

She wouldn't be playing earlier than Wednesday, so your argument is pretty weak.

Re: Serena withdraws from Paris.

Are there byes for the top 2 seeds?

I expected as much, no point risking injury like she did last year, compromising her clay court season.

"And thanks to all the people around the world for supporting me, and my fan club, I could feel your support no matter where I was in the world. Thank you for your devotion. Most importantly, thanks to my family, especially my mom. You've been very supportive, encouraging, inspiring... you were always there for me. It was a long way and we did it together. I love you mom. It's so emotional. It's so hard to say goodbye. I'm going to miss you so much"

More a flippant comment than an argument. But okay, by the time Serena finishes hob-nobbing it'll be Monday morning. Getting herself sorted and flying means she wouldn't land in Paris until very late Monday night/Tuesday morning. Doing all the to play in mere Premier tournament was never going to happen
