Rita Grande has been forced to withdraw from the Australian Open as she is still recovering from her tennis elbow injury :(
It's been affecting her for over a year, so let's hope she is not forced to retire because of it :sad:

thanks for the news...altough it is a very bad news :sad:...I was expecting it when I did not see her name at the Morilla Open, a tournament that she always loved....I pray that this does not mean retirement.....

I knew something wasn't right when I saw her in New York for the Open. Her loss to Linetskaya was tough to watch.

Come back soon Rita :sad: :hug:

Don't worry she is determined to make her comeback soon :bounce:

Let's hope the WTA do give her a special ranking as her ranking has suffered badly because of her injury.
