Tennis: Henin-Hardenne forfait à Linz

ZURICH (AP) - La numéro 2 mondiale Justine Henin-Hardenne, trop fatiguée, a déclaré forfait pour le tournoi de Linz (Autriche) programmé la semaine prochaine, a annoncé la WTA vendredi.La Belge, qui a déjà assuré sa place aux Masters de Los Angeles en fin d'année, avait remporté le tournoi autrichien la saison dernière en battant en finale l'Américaine Alexandra Stevenson."Malheureusement, je n'ai pas d'autre option que de me reposer après cette semaine pour être sûre d'être à 100% pour les Masters dans trois semaines", a déclaré Henin-Hardenne, qui pourrait devenir numéro un mondiale en fin de semaine si elle s'mpose à Zurich. AP


Will they try to get another top tenner Amélie to play?

Exclamation

So that means Myskina is the highest seed?

That's pretty weak for a Tier II tournament. At this point, the highest seed they could get is either Venus or Amelie and I don't think they will get either.

There has been a rumor that Amelie will play, in fact.

Not saying it's reliable, but...

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

According to the tourney website, they're in the process of getting another top ten player to enter. The draw will be done on Sunday now, instead of Saturday.

I've heard that rumor, too....

To be honest, its not a surprise. I think Amelie should rest too, especially with the YEC Champs coming up!

It's be better to see the top players there rested and ready to play!

Good decision. Linz is already a little tournament in Juju's scale. I think that she is in better shape in the Championships now.

Allez Juju!

All the best to Justine Henin-Hardenne!!

the WTA-Tour give a garantee and so there have to be 2 top10 players
now there is just 1, and so WTA have to make a top10 girl play, or have to pay

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Well, they can't use the gold exempt list on Jen, since they already got her to play Moscow that way.

I wonder which top 10 player they will get. Maybe they can get one of the players who is commited to Luxembourg to play. Maybe Elena or Chanda?

its not Top 10 ranks of this week
its TOP 10 of GOLD EXEMPT LIST 2003

Gold Exempt List 2003
1. Serena Williams ---- OUT NOT PLAYING
2. Venus Williams --- OUT NOT PLAYING
3. Jennifer Capriati --- "PISS OFF you already forced me to play Moscow, you know"
4. Martina Hingis
5. Lindsay Davenport --OP OUT
6. Monica Seles OUT
7. Amelie Mauresmo...... possibly maybe
8. Jelena Dokic
9. Kim Clijsters-- playing LUX
[s]10. Justine Henin/s] withdrew
11. Anna Kournikova (wc) OUT
12. Daniela Hantuchova
13. Anastasia Myskina
14. Chanda Rubin playing LUX


so as it stands they got 3 Top 10 in (Dokic, Hantuchova plus Myskina (both was promoted when Seles/Hingis/Anna being out)

Chanda is next one on list, if they cant force Amelie.

Elena D withdrew from LUX too cos she's tired

Good luck to my favs
