Serena Williams Withdraws From Chase Open

CARLSBAD, Calif. - Top-ranked Serena Williams (news - web sites) withdrew from next week's J.P. Morgan Chase Open due to a strained left quadriceps, the third straight tournament she will miss due to injury.

Tuesday's announcement by the WTA Tour comes a day after Williams pulled out of the Acura Classic. She also withdrew from the Bank of the West Classic last week.

Williams, winner of five of the past six Grand Slam titles, had an MRI performed on her left leg Monday in Los Angeles and was advised not to play this week. The quadriceps injury was causing Williams considerable pain in her left knee.

Williams missed the Bank of the West Classic because of pain in her left knee not associated with her strained quadriceps.

She wasn't going to the JP Morgan in the first place...so to answer your question..yes in all likelihood Kim will take the #1 ranking. Although it is possible for her to get it this week..she probably won't.

Get those flowers ready j/k

Cause she needs the seeds to hold up..in addition to winning the tournie she would have to collect a rather large amount of bonus points as well..she needs to beat Justine in the final..also she has to beat either Davenport or Rubin..if the draw collapses she won't have enough bonus points to overtake #1

from www.tennisone.com... here are the facts, no guesses...


San Diego - No Round In Particular
Serena Williams -- WITHDRAWN

This is it. The #1 ranking is on Kim Clijsters' racquet.

Well, just barely. It's going to be a very, very, very close thing.

First, the story of what happened. Serena, who last week withdrew from Stanford with a knee problem (believed to be tendonitis), has now withdrawn from San Diego as well. Since she didn't withdraw until after play began, seeds will not be promoted; Meilen Tu will take her place as a Lucky Loser. It has not been announced, but it appears that Serena will be fined for two consecutive late withdrawals.

But the real penalty is bigger: She might lose the top spot, at least for a week. Here is the situation: Serena leads Kim Clijsters by 264 points. However, Clijsters has 122 points in her seventeenth tournament, meaning that she has to earn 386 points to pass Serena.

Can she do it? Yes, barely -- if the seeds hold. This is a bonus Tier II, so it's worth 220 points. And, as the draw stands, Clijsters's path to the title is:

Second round: Virginia Ruano Pascual (8 quality points)
Third round: Meghann Shaughnessy (23 quality points)
Quarterfinal: Ai Sugiyama or Conchita Martinez (35 quality points)
Semifinal: Lindsay Davenport (50 quality points)
Final: Justine Henin-Hardenne (66 quality points)

Grand total: 402 points. That means Clijsters has a margin of error of 16 points. That means she can accept only one substitution: If she faces Chanda Rubin rather than Lindsay Davenport in the semifinal, she's still all right. (The withdrawal of Nathalie Dechy genuinely hurt her: Had Dechy been in the draw, she would have had a 31 point margin, and would not have needed to face Henin-Hardenne in the final.)

Even if Clijsters doesn't make it this week, she can all but guarantee herself the top spot at some future time by doing well here. It's going to be a very interesting week.

I think I see Kim in the back rumbling through the garbage looking for those extra points now that she heard Serena is not going to JP morgan chase.................

could it be that the Williamses have a protest against California? This Indian Wells thing is going too far........

Doesn't this mean Serena isn't gonna play a match from the Wimbledon final to the first round of the US Open. Won't she want to re-enter in Canada or enter in New Haven?

All math doesn't matter anymore. If Kim wins Acura she WILL BECOME #1. Barring some incredible chain of upsets.

I think that's exactly what it means..that quite a long break Can she re-enter Canada? Isn't she doing some movie thing that week?

btw I just got my Rogers Cup tickets today and the envelope they come in has Serena on the cover...just like last year ..me thinks they're going to stop putting her on the cover
