A New Year's exhibition match in Seoul between Maria Sharapova and Lindsay Davenport has been cancelled due to the latter's pregnancy, an organizer said Wednesday.

The two world-class players were due to clash on the first day of 2007 in Seoul.

"Early this morning, we were notified from the agent for Davenport that she cannot play the exhibition match because of her pregnancy," Lee Seung-hwan, the president of sports marketing company Sema Sports, told Yonhap News Agency. "Because of the short notice, we have decided to cancel the event."
The company has arranged various sporting events, including a tennis exhibition match between Roger Federer and Raphael Nadal last month and Sharapova and Venus Williams last year.

Oh Congrats to Lindsay, I don't particularly like her but this is great news for her... :D :bounce:

I'm sure Maria will find something else (party) to go to instead ;)

Great for Lindsay to be having a baby! :) But i'm sad that she's retiring. I'll miss her, she's one of the greatest strikers of the ball. :hug:

Does this mean Maria won't have a doubles partner in the Hong Kong exo?

I havr heard that Caroline Wozniaki was the alternate and might be the replacement player. I would love to see Caro and Masha play doubles together.
