Injury, rain hang over Hobart final

Friday January 12, 6:17 AM


Top seed Anna Chakvetadze will enter Friday night's Hobart International final against fellow Russian Vasilia Bardina under an injury cloud after straining a stomach muscle late in her semi-final.

Late showers have also been forecast for Hobart on Friday, leaving plenty of questions marks surrounding the tournament decider, scheduled to start at 7pm

Chakvetadze beat India's Sania Mirza 6-4 6-1 on Thursday night, but admitted the painful injury may have forced her to retire had the match gone for too much longer.

The world number 13 on Thursday night claimed she was 99 per cent certain of being fit for the final against qualifier Bardina, who beat Sybille Bammer earlier on Thursday.

Injuries and rain are part of the sport.
I hope they get the match in tonight, and everyone leaves healthy.

Anna C you better withdraw. AO is a lot better than this Tier III(?) :hug:

I hope there is no severe injury in a match for the final since Justine retires from AO Final!

Good luck for those players! I think Bardina will win as well i heard that she is a qualifier which seems very impressive!
