Re: ~Petra Martic~

From tournament website:
"Petra Martic de Croacia y quien había logrado el viernes su cupo a la semifinal tuvo que retirarse por enfermedad."

It's true.
It's like Croatian womens tennis is cursed, we are not allowed to really look forward to anything...
I really hope this isn't anything serious, poor Petra...

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Just terrible... Get well soon Petra

P. S. My Spanish isn't perfect, but from what I know "enfermedad" is more likely to mean sickness/illness than injury (verdad, mis queridos?).

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Oh well, the important thing is that she's ready in time for IW - defending some nice points there.

BTW, Petra is back into top100, up 21 spots from 119 to 98! Best ranked Croat again.

Petra is not in the singles draw but is in the doubles draw with Hercog (#2 seeds) What's that about?!?!?

It's also interesting that last week in Bogota Petra played singles but not doubles. I expected her to play with Hercog.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

^^ Yeah, I also thought she'll play doubles last week, but it turns out it was a good choice to play only singles cause she was finding some great form.

Maybe they wanted to give her some extra warm-up time before big events by playing this week, but didn't want to drain her energy levels too much after that sickness (maybe it was something like a stomach virus, cause she's already back in action), so signed her up only for doubles. It's 4 matches at most, and they're not as long and exhausting as singles might be, so it's a safer bet. Also, she's not defending any doubles points until early April, so there's no real risk in terms of ranking.

Anyway, good luck girls!

Yeah, you're right. I assumed Petra's ranking was good enough to make the singles MD but the last DE was Pous-Tio (#108), who was ranked higher than Petra when the list was made.

Oh, well, it's not a disaster, given Petra's recent illness.
