Exclamation Hingis also withdraws from Tokyo

Sorry if it has already been posted.

Auch in Tokio wird Hingis fehlen

(sid)- Die Schweizerin Martina Hingis hakt den ganzen Januar 2003 ab. Damit verschiebt sich das Comeback des Tennisstars weiter. Die 22-Jährige musste jetzt auch ihre geplante Titelverteidigung beim WTA-Turnier in Tokio Ende Januar absagen.

Die ehemalige Weltranglistenerste leidet immer noch an den Folgen einer Knöcheloperation im Mai, durch die sie bereits den Start bei den French Open und in Wimbledon verpasste. Ursprünglich wollte sie zu den Australian Open vom 13. bis 26. Januar wieder in den Turnier-Zirkus einsteigen.

En anglais (from BBC):

The uncertainty over the future of Martina Hingis will continue after she announced her withdrawal from next month's Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo.

Hingis, the defending champion, pulled out of the $1.3m (£850,000) tournament beginning on 28 January because she has not fully recovered from ankle surgery.

The 22-year-old Swiss had already announced that she would not be able to play at the first Grand Slam event of 2003, the Australian Open.

The former world number one had surgery back in May that kept her out of the French Open and Wimbledon.

She announced in October that she would take an indefinite break, citing January for a possible comeback.

However, in December, Hingis admitted that her left ankle required further rehabilitation.

Hingis has shared the Tokyo indoor title with Lindsay Davenport over the past six years, winning in 1997, 1999, 2000 and 2002.

Her withdrawal leaves Davenport and Australian Open champion Jennifer Capriati as the favourites for this year's crown.

I'm pretty sure he's talking about the Tokyo tournament

Anyway, I'm not at all surprised with this. I was sort of expecting it.

I don't care much, but why does she withdraw today when she can wait 3-4 weeks...and why is the listed on the Tokyo web, when she don't even entered...

Please visit my Caroline website.

the Tokyo website needs updating, plus Martina always plays there so Tokyo PPO just put her on the site.

Poor Martina
Tennis needs her.

Good luck to my favs

I think Martina will be out long enough to get a protected ranking, so expect to see her in late March/early April. Just my hunch.

How can she know now that her ankle won't recover by the time of Tokyo? I'm just saying that she should wait a bit to be certain that she can't play.
