I think i've found the article:

http://www.wort.lu/ It's in the Sport section:

Anna Kurnikowa verzichtet auf Seat Open

Die Russin hat ihre Teilnahme an den Seat Open wegen einer Bänderverletzung, die sie sich beim Turnier in Moskau zugezogen hat, abgesagt.

Letzte Aktualisierung: 07-10-2002 18:02

(jm) - Die Seat Open finden in diesem Jahr ohne Anna Kurnikowa statt. Die Russin hat ihre Turnierteilnahme wegen eines Bänderrisses, den sie sich beim Turnier in Moskau zugezogen hat, abgesagt.
Anna Kurnikowa sei sehr enttäuscht darüber, dass sie wegen der Verletzung weder in Luxemburg noch in Zürich antreten könne, heißt es in einer Mitteilung ihres Managements . Zuletzt zeigte die Russin, die in ihrer Karriere noch kein WTA-Turnier gewinnen konnte in der Weltrangliste auf Platz 33 steht, ansteigende Form. Sie verlor erst im Finale des Turniers von Schanghai gegen Anna Smashnowa aus Israel.

Favoritin auf einen Turniersieg bei den Seat Open ist Kim Clijsters. Die 18-jährige Belgierin wird bei dem Turnier versuchen, das am 19. Oktober in Kockelscheuer startet , ihren Titel vom vergangenen Jahr zu verteidigen. Daneben haben Top-Spielerinnen wie Mary Pierce, Magdalena Maleeva und Amanda Coetzer ihre Teilnahme zugesagt. Anne Kremer und Claudine Schaul werden versuchen, die luxemburgischen Farben so gut wie möglich zu vertreten.

Translation (perhaps not too accurate but you'll get the general idea):

Translation:

Anna Kournikova withdraws from Seat Open.
The Russian calls her participation off in the Seat Open because of a volume injury that tightened itself during the Moscow Open.

The Seat Open will take place without Anna Kournikova this year.
The Russian called her tournament participation off because of a volume tear, which she tightened herself (i guess we can take they're talking about her left ankle sprain) in Moscow.
Anna Kournikova is very dissapointed about not being able to play neither in Luxembourg nor in Zurich, a report from her management says. The Russian who still hasn't won a WTA singles tournament title and is 33# in the rankings was showing a rising form lately, only losing the Shangai final to Anna Smashnova from Israel recently.

The favourite to win the tournament is Kim Clijsters. The 18 year old belgian will try to defend her last year title in the tournament, which starts October 19th in Kockelscheuer. Other players participating are Mary Pierce, Magdalena Maleeva and Amanda Coetzer. Anne Kremer and Claudine Schaul will try to represent the Luxembourg colours as well as possible.

Las Leonas World Champions 2002, gracias chicas!!!!!!!
