Kournikova Withdraws From Challenger Tournament

Kournikova withdraws from challenger tournament


April 17, 2003
DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) -- Anna Kournikova pulled out of a minor league event because of a thigh injury.

She signed up for the $75,000 USTA Women's Challenger Tournament, part of the lower tier of tennis tourneys typically for players trying to move up. More established players also have used the events to regain confidence or tweak their games.

But Kournikova scrapped her plans to tune up here because of the injury that forced her to quit during a match last week at the Family Circle Cup.

``She's definitely out -- unfortunately,'' challenger tournament director Kim Meeker said Thursday. ``She's the highest profile person there is in tennis. There's nobody I would rather have had for the draw.''

Kournikova's anticipated participation, Meeker said, ``was met with a lot of excitement in Dothan.''

She has dropped 59 ranking spots since peaking at No. 8 in May 2001. Kournikova never has won a WTA Tour event.
