Unhappy I'm seriously worried about Monica...

Wow, it has been a long time since I posted something on this messageboard! So y'all! Anyway, I saw Monica's match yesterday on Eurosport and I must say that I'm seriously worried about Monica's foot injury. Though Monica looked very slim and in form, she was contantly looking at her feet and at one point she also stood still and made some strange movements with her left foot. The camera instantly zoomed in and you could see on her face that she was in pain. Later on, Monica kept looking like she was in pain, and when she won, the immediately took off her shoes and gave her left foot a rest. Now, I just heard that she withdrew from the doubles because of this injury... she hasn't played for weeks because of this injury... I'm just so worried! I don't want Monica to be in pain ! I want her to be healthy...

Anyone else saw the match yesterday? Anyone else worried like me?

Monica SELES: Hi Tom! I really like a variety of artists - I like the CDs that have a variety of artists so I don't get bored with just one or two!

I'm sure it was more of a precaution
but Monica is a fighter, so unless shes in a lot of pain she'll still play on it

Monica deserves a break so hopefully it's just an annoying blister but given her spate of injuries from her foot I wouldn't be surprised if it was the same injury. Good luck Mon!

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Well obviously your "worry" was well waranted, since Monica was forced to withdraw from her 2R match -- do you think she'll try for the French Open or not?

Well obviously now - we know that her foot is still hurting her.
Lets hope her foot will be ready for the French. oh hum.....

Here is an article I found:

Foot taking its toll on Seles

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

She was using this event as a key clay-court tune-up for the French Open, which starts on May 26.

Seles said she would still attempt to play in the Paris tournament.

The 10th-seed had lost the first set to Nadia Petrova 6-3 and was down 4-1 in the second when she signalled 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.

Don't know if this was posted elsewhere on WTAWorld

Tennis-Rome defeat hurts for 10th seed Seles

By James Eve

ROME, May 14 (Reuters) - Monica Seles faces a battle to be fit for the French Open later this month after she retired from her second-round match against Nadia Petrova at the Rome Masters on Wednesday with a recurrent foot injury.

The 10th seed, who has already pulled out of tournaments in Indian Wells, Miami and Charleston this year, had lost the first set 6-3 to the Russian and was struggling at 4-1 down in the second when she retired.

Her demise contrasted with easy wins for second-seed Kim Clijsters, fourth-seed Amelie Mauresmo and fifth seed Jennifer Capriati.

Elsewhere, four-time former champion Conchita Martinez followed up her first-round win over Jelena Dokic with a 6-4 6-3 victory against Emmanuelle Gagliardi to set up a last 16 clash with seventh-seeded Slovakian Daniela Hantuchova.

Seles, who has been dogged by pain in the arch of her right foot for more than a year, never found her rhythm against Petrova, dropping serve in the opening game to lose the first set in 28 minutes.

She then committed a series of unforced errors to lose 12 of the first 13 points in the second to allow Petrova to race to a 3-0 lead and then retired two games later.

"Today I tried, but, you know, I can't run to the level that I need to run if I want to win a match," she told reporters afterwards. "It would take at least six to nine months to cure this.

"(Anna) Kournikova had it and she had to have surgery. It's one of those problems that's pretty serious.

"I just don't feel at this stage in my career I want to have surgery and be off nine months and come back to the world of tennis.

"If it can get better, I'll take a little bit more time off. If it's not, then I have to make a decision to stop."

Seles said she still planned to be at Roland Garros at the end of the month, though she would only know for certain after treatment had taken effect in 10 days' time.

"It's really disappointing. There are days it feels fine and there are days that it's so painful.

"That's why I can't make a decision. Definitely since February there have been more days of pain than less, and that's what I have to take into consideration."

Petrova will meet Capriati in the third round after the fifth seed cruised past Colombia's Fabiola Zuluaga 6-3 6-4.

Belgium's Clijsters swept aside Virginia Ruano Pascual of Spain 6-1 6-0, while Mauresmo beat 19-year-old Lina Krasnoroutskaya of Russia 6-2 7-6 to also advance.

I think the end is near for Monica. It's sad that both Hingis and Seles and Pierce to a lesser extent are constantly facing surgeries and injuries and weight problems and stalkers (I don't know if Pierce was ever stalked). I really think if Monica says that it will take 6 to 9 months that she will not come back.
