Elena Baltacha and her latest injury

Does anyone know what is now wrong with Britain's Elena Baltacha? She was apparently recently playing in a tournament in Changwon Korea and had to pull out. It is reported in sportinglife.com, however they don't say what the injury was.

Any ideas anyone? Any idea how long it will be before she's back to fitness? Will she make Wimbledon?

She is on list the list for Surbiton.......I beleive after playing match after match it would be muscle fatigue.

Re: Elena Baltacha and her latest injury

Hoping it is just fatigue. She needs to get plenty of rest after 3 tough weeks in Korea. The only other player who could have been as active as her over that time would be Jankovic

Re: Elena Baltacha and her latest injury

If it's muscle fatigue surely she could have recovered sufficiently to play in the qualifying rounds for the french. How long does it take a professional athelete to recover - even if they are British!

Ummmm...the red clay is not her best surface. I think she would rather prep herself for the grass season and save her SR for a surface she can make an impact on.

Re: Elena Baltacha and her latest injury

When I read the topic title I thought she was re-injured. Thankfully it seems not good luck on the grass Elena.

She can't even make a impact on a piece of butter! Baltacha can barely win matches on grass and hard...so...

I started this thread because it was reported on Sportinglife.com that she was re-injured. It is just conjecture that she is not. No-one seems to know for certain one way or the other as far as I can see. Anyway its all moot; being a Brit there's probably not much difference in the standard of her play when she's injured to when she's not. She'd have still gone out in the first of second round of the qualies.

McDonalds are missing useful staff (like Baltacha, Keothovong and co.) that are instead being subsidised by the LTA to go on a world tour for ten years. Wasters.

how about you play them and see how poor they are?

Baltacha has beaten many good players like Coetzer and Srebotnik - how many players can say they reached a 3rd round of a major.

Keothavong has been our most consistant player for ages - I strongly believe had she not injured her knee a couple of years ago she would be top 100

Re: Elena Baltacha and her latest injury

I beleive that Bally could have been inside the to 100 if it weren't for her injuries. There is still hope. I wouldn't listen to that fool!
