Kournikova out of Memphis!

Kournikova sidelined with bad back

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ESPN.com news services


MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Anna Kournikova, bothered by back problems, withdrew from next week's Kroger St. Jude tournament on Thursday.

Kournikova injured her back in the Australian Open last month. Kournikova lost in the second round in Melbourne to Justine Henin-Hardenne.

Kournikova confirmed her withdrawal from the tournament on her Web site.

"My back sprain is improving, but I won't be in tournament competition for about the next three weeks," she said. "Unfortunately, this means that I won't be able to play in Memphis next week, which is very disappointing for me. It's a great tournament that has a wonderful charitable beneficiary in St. Jude. I wish them all the best for a really successful tournament week."

Kournikova will make an appearance to present a $30,000 check to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Kournikova had won a skills challenge at last year's U.S. Open and designated St. Jude as her charity.

"It is really disappointing that she can't play, but it's amazing that she's coming," tournament owner Mac Winker told The Commercial Appeal of Memphis. "I think that's really a wonderful showing of good faith."

Kournikova had been promoted heavily by tourney officials. Kournikova has not won a singles tournament since turning pro in 1995 but has been ranked in the top 10 on several occasions since November 2000.

lol we posted it on the same time

....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

What did they mean she has been ranked in the top ten on (several occasions) in 2000? Didn't she get to #8 for about a week then fall out to never return?

that you're a moron. and sad. that it's pathetic how you live your life hoping that Anna is pregnant just so you can be right. disgusting.

Thats pretty much right. She spent most of her career ranked about 10-20, and then was #8 for a few weeks, then fell out of the top ten again. They like to hype up her achievements to promote her more.

Is the $30, 000 to St. Jude's money from her, or the event itself? And does anyone agree that if Anna "spontaneously" announced she was donating her own $150, 000 appearance fee (let's be honest, that's a modest sum to her) to St. Jude's and got a big embrace from Marlo Thomas, it would do wonders for her image?

Anna end the year in no. 8 in 2000, so it is more than a few weeks you guys are talking about

Why don't you check your facts, before you open your mouth next time, of course unless you enjoy looking stupid all the time and I am not going to waste my time listing them either..
They hype her achievements now.. that's a new one

If you are so interested in where the $30,000 is coming from?? Perhaps if you little bit of reading you might find out.

Oh, do you really thinks she is going to be getting $150,000 (I don't know where that figure came from) when she aren't playing now.

How many separate times was she in the top ten and for how many weeks did she remain there?
