Anne suffers from an inflammation in her her left wrist.When i met her some weeks ago in town she told me that she was undergoing a laser therapy and if it would not help she would have to undergo surgery!
The problem first appeared at the end of last season (ironically when she played the Seat Open here in Luxemburg) and it still persists.I am not a doctor but I think a wrist inflammation is one of those injuries that forces a player to take a long break to heal completly.
It is very sad that Anne cannot play IW and Miami because she reached in both tournaments the 4th round last year and eliminated each time Jelena Dokic in straight sets.I hope she will be fit for Amelia Island where she was in the semi-final last year and had back to back wins over Testud and Mauresmo.
I also want to take this opportunity to ask for a player forum for Anne.It is always very complicated to get some information about her and I think a player forum would facilitate it!I do not want to know how complicated it is for people from other countries to get information about her if we Luxemburgers are not informed at all!!!
Poor Anne Sounds like Agassi's injury he had to have surgery on years ago.
Anyways, I will snatch up every piece of literature I can from the WTA about injuries and report all I know in this forum later this week. I'm not going until maybe Thursday though, so it won't be until then.
