"Fitness fight" report about Elena Baltacha

From the "News of the World", not the most reliable source, but I don't think there's anything dodgy about this:

Elena fitness fight:

"Britain's new no.1 Elena Baltacha faces a fight of up to 2 years to regain full fitness. The 19 year-old Scot has liver damage caused by antibiotics taken to combat tonsilitis and other infections.
Baltacha - who has just gained a career-high world ranking of 154 - has been told there is no lasting damage and she can continue to play, although she must avoid getting over-tired. She has still to decide whether to play in the Southampton tournament this week.
Coach Alan Jones said "She's given everything while being ill for 18 months, which makes you wonder what kind of career she will have when she's rid of all this" "
