Flavia had been out for almost four months with a wrist injury and only just returned to action, so she'll need a little more time to get back into form.

Schiavone is also recovering from an injury i think.

Hey - don't forget about Tathiana Garbin who just reached the semis at Gold Coast!
She's from Italy and ranked #33 in the world.

this is true - she is in the form of her life!


She like Farina Elia has gotten better with age and I think her game makes her into a late bloomer so its nice to see her acheiving what she deserves
