petra withdrew from doha a dub because she will go to rehab in switzerland.. she had a cyst removed from her knee a few hours after losing to doi..
petra will suffer on the rankings in the short term, but the most important thing is to have her 100% before she goes onto the court in ind well/miami..
if she is 100% and able to maintain that, she will be able to get on a roll with her tennis and the ranking will sort itself out..
in the end, the aim is for a longterm career.. at the moment she is competing against herself.. nobody else.. once she is right, she can start to look at those ranked in front of her..
Vv good update. Ziveli to her!
