Article on Seles pulling out of the Tourney..

Get well soon Moncia, take your time!!!

ROME (AP) -- Monica Seles pulled out of her second-round match at the Italian Open on Wednesday due to a lingering foot injury.

Seles was using this US$1.3 million event as a key clay-court tuneup for the French Open, which starts May 26. She said she would still attempt to play the tournament in Paris.

The 10th-seeded American had lost the first set to Nadia Petrova 6-3 and was down 4-1 in the second against the Russian when she signaled on the changeover that she had had enough.

Seles missed several events earlier this year due to the injury in her left foot.

On Tuesday, she had to rally for a 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 victory against 46th-ranked Myriam Casanova and then pulled out of the doubles competition due to her injury.

Facing Petrova, Seles lost her serve in the first game of the match and then again early in the second set. The injury explained why she did not attempt to run down several of Petrova's shots.

This injury has been going on for far too long. Because of that, I fear it will never heal sufficiently and that the end of Monica's career is at hand.
