Lina is playing LA and then she is hoping for a wild card of some type into the U.S. Open. She is also entered in the Bronx $50K Challenger event, right before the Open. (Aug 12)
After the Open, she will head to Tokyo (the week of September 16)_ and then to Europe
Good luck Lina on her way back from injury. :)
i hope its a full and fast way back to where she was before it happened.

Is she for sure playing in LA?
Jul 22nd, 2002, 07:27 PM
Yay!!! Welcome back, Lina :)
Jul 22nd, 2002, 07:33 PM
At the moment all plans are for the go ahead for LA
she's been practising for about 5 weeks nearly
things finally looking good
so ** touch wood**
Jul 22nd, 2002, 07:52 PM
nice news...:) ;) :)
Jul 23rd, 2002, 11:43 AM
AWESOME!!!!!! Im so wraped to hear that, i reckon she would have been in top 20 by now if not for injury!
God luck making your way back to the top.
Any news on Nadia Petrova?
Jul 23rd, 2002, 11:54 AM
sorry, which Lina?
Jul 23rd, 2002, 11:58 AM
Lina Krasnoroutskaya :)
Nadia still a mystery, she was due to play Sopot but pulled out at last minute :confused:
Jul 23rd, 2002, 02:37 PM
it will be very hard to Lina to get a US Open WC...lets wait and see what those folks do at the USTA.
I cant wait to see which American girls get WC's this year.
Jul 23rd, 2002, 02:40 PM
Can't wait to see her back healthy and playing kick-ass tennis!!
Thanks for the news!
Jul 23rd, 2002, 02:47 PM
She is also entered in the Bronx $50K Challenger event, right before the Open. (Aug 12)
And that means that she doesn't think that her hopes of getting any kind of WC for USO are any high. AFAIR, that Challenger is also a pre-qualifying tournament for USO. So she makes sure that she has a chance for USO anyway.
Hell, and that means that now I am probably going to attend Bronx Challenger..:)

Go ys go! Bring Lina good luck! :D Jus tlike I did when I saw Maria Sharapova play WTT. Oops! Maria lost 5-0 to Katarina Srebotnik!
Eggy, it's going to take Lina many months to regain her form! :(
I hope Lina is willing to take it one step at a time.
Since Lina's terrible ankle injury was caused by that horrible sticky rebound ace court in Australia, why didn't she receive an injury ranking?
Lina won't get a WC from USTA. I doubt they will even give a WC to Maria Sharapova. And she deserves it! :)
Jul 23rd, 2002, 09:40 PM
Lina has got an injury rank (about 38)
Jul 23rd, 2002, 09:46 PM
won't they give Lina a wild card into the US Open since she is one of the players on that top 20 list or is that just for tour events and not slams?
Jul 23rd, 2002, 09:52 PM
they could but the WTA Tour is independent from the slams but that would be taken into consideration.
Even a qual WC would be gladly welcomed.
cat ....... there's a big difference between Maria who is a 15 yr upstart and Lina who's 18 and was one of the Gold Exempt players for 2002.
Jul 23rd, 2002, 10:01 PM
Welcome back Lina! Here's hoping she gets in to the US Open. (Ted Robinson loves her name.) Let's see the wounded all return to form soon.
BTW, wasn't there something about Nadia in the last injury report?
Jul 24th, 2002, 01:27 AM
What does that injury rank actually mean, Eggy? Will it come into play?
Jul 24th, 2002, 03:10 AM
They will give her a WC i reckon, either because of injury rank or common sense!!
Please keep us posted with Nadia news, i like both those girls, so sad for them to have been out for so long!
Jul 24th, 2002, 04:07 AM
of course it will come into play, thats the whole point of the injury rank
thats how she is playing LA, Tokyo
she has 8 tourns to use her IR in.
help a little but its not the same as playing at your actual rank of 38 when you'd get seeded if high enough
