Klemenschits mit 25 Jahren verstorbenFrühere österreichische Fed-Cup-Spielerin einem Krebsleiden erlegen
Das österreichische Tennis trauert um die frühere Fed-Cup-Spielerin Daniela Klemenschits. Die Salzburgerin, die bis 2006 mit ihrer Zwillingsschwester Sandra Österreichs bestes Doppel gebildet hatte, erlag im Alter von 25 Jahren in ihrer Heimatstadt einer Krebserkrankung.

Das österreichische Tennis trauert um die frühere Fed-Cup-Spielerin Daniela Klemenschits. Die Salzburgerin, die bis 2006 mit ihrer Zwillingsschwester Sandra Österreichs bestes Doppel gebildet hatte, erlag im Alter von 25 Jahren in ihrer Heimatstadt einer Krebserkrankung. Ihre Schwester leidet unter derselben Krankheit, einer seltenen Form von Unterleibskrebs.


(sid/si/apa) Daniela Klemenschits litt seit Jahresbeginn 2007 an einer seltenen Erkrankung im Unterleib. Auch ihre Zwillingsschwester Sandra hat dieselbe Krankheit, befindet sich aber auf dem Weg der Besserung.
Die am 13. November 1982 geborene Daniela Klemenschits absolvierte an der Seite ihrer Zwillingsschwester Sandra im Jahr 2005 zwei Fed-Cup-Begegnungen für Österreich und gewann auf ITF-Ebene 23 Doppelturniere.
Im Juli 2005 siegten die Österreicherinnen mit den Geschwistern Klemenschits in Lausanne gegen die Schweiz. Im Doppel feierten Daniela und Sandra Klemenschits gegen Gaelle Widmer/Stefanie Vögele einen diskussionslosen 6:0-6:2-Erfolg. Als beste Weltranglisten-Klassierung erreichte Daniela Klemenschits Position 95 im Doppel (August 2005) und Platz 356 im Einzel (Juli 2001).
Der Fall der österreichischen Zwillingsschwestern hat weltweit für Aufsehen und Anteilnahme garantiert. Nicht zuletzt auch dank Initiative von Barbara Schett wurde auch eine grosse Spendenaktion auf der WTA- und ATP-Tour ins Leben gerufen, sowie Geld im Internet gesammelt, um für die kostspieligen Behandlungen beider Schwestern aufzukommen.

Former Austrian tennis player Daniela Klemenschits dies of cancer at age 25

THE ASSOCIATED PRESSWed Apr 9, 12:19 PM ET

SALZBURG, Austria - Former Austrian doubles player Daniela Klemenschits died early Wednesday after a battle with cancer, the country's tennis federation said. She was 25.
Klemenschits teamed up with twin sister Sandra to play doubles on the WTA Tour and the ITF women's circuit until 2006.
Both sisters were diagnosed with a rare form of abdominal cancer in January last year, forcing them to retire from the sport.
Daniela had to have several tumours removed and required expensive medical care, causing many tennis players on the ATP and WTA tours to make donations and rally for support.
Roger Federer, Marat Safin, Justine Henin, Amelie Mauresmo and Martina Hingis and others donated items for an online auction in June to raise funds for Klemenschits' treatment.
The Klemenschits sisters won 20 titles on the ITF circuit and, although they failed to win a WTA Tour event, entered the top 100 of the WTA doubles ranking in 2005.

There where questions about the kind of cancer they were suffering:

Klemenschits Passes Away

SALZBURG, Austria - It was a sad day for the tennis world on Wednesday, as Daniela Klemenschits - who, along with twin sister Sandra Klemenschits, was diagnosed with a rare form of abdominal stomach cancer last January - passed away.
Last summer, the Klemenschits sisters made a plea for financial help as their treatment was becoming more and more expensive. The tennis world came together, beginning with ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour stars like Justine Henin, Roger Federer, Amélie Mauresmo, Marat Safin, Martina Hingis, Ana Ivanovic and Daniela Hantuchova, Maria Sharapova, Rafael Nadal and Steffi Graf donating items for an auction on sonyericssonwtatour.com that raised $10,000. Players donated $50,000 out of their pockets and the Tour matched the auction earnings for a total of $70,000.
Unfortunately, the illness proved too much for 25-year-old Daniela, whose cancer was more advanced than Sandra's. On Wednesday night in Amelia Island, there was a moment of silence in memoriam prior to the night match between Lindsay Davenport and Jill Craybas.
The Klemenschits sisters are perhaps best-known for reaching the Istanbul final in 2005 and the Stockholm and Budapest semifinals later that year; they were an impressive force on the ITF Women's Circuit as well, winning 20 titles together

very sad to hear.. also very dissapointed that the players only donated $50K total. If they each at give $50K each it wouldn't be so bad but $50K combined?

Saying that someone lost the battle against cancer is a very gentle, euphemistic way of saying that this person passed away because of cancer :shrug: I don't see what's wrong here. :confused:

Unfortunately it was too late for Dani; but Sandra seems to be on the way to recovery.
All the best for her now, now that has to fight against her disease and has to deal with the death of her beloved sister too. Unimaginable hard time for her, as well as for her family and friends...

Wish them much strenght and courage now to come through this!

If you don`t have other thoughts and feelings by reading that a 25 year old woman died of cancer and her twin-sister suffers of the same cancer - sorry i think THAT is insensitive!!

Sandra plays Tennis again

http://heuteonline.at/images/1504_sport_krebs_gepa_big.jpg

Der Schmerz ist riesengroß: Sechs Tage nach dem Krebstod ihrer geliebten Zwillingsschwester Dani bricht Ex-Tennis-Profi Daniela Klemenschits (25) immer wieder in Tränen aus. Ihre „alte Liebe“ hilft den Schmerz etwas erträglicher zu machen – Sandra spielt wieder Tennis.



Ihr Körper ist schwach, die Schläge sind lange nicht so präzise wie früher: Doch Sandra Klemenschits, vor zwei Jahren gemeinsam mit Dani noch das beste rot-weiß-rote Damen-Doppel, spielt wieder Tennis. Behäbig – und abwesend. Doch die „alte, gemeinsame Liebe“ soll beim Vergessen helfen. Aber Sandra tut sich schwer. „Dass die Dani nicht mehr da ist, das tut so weh“, sagt sie.

Vor dem heutigen Begräbnis in der Pfarrkirche Niederalm (15 Uhr), bei dem auch die Ex-Profispielerinnen Patricia Wartusch und Barbara Schwartz anwesend sein werden, hat sie so wie Betreuer und Freund Kurt Waltl Angst. „Weil wir alle nicht wissen, wie wir reagieren werden“, so Waltl. Viel zu tief sitzt der Schmerz. Viel zu groß ist der Verlust, den Dani in ihrer Welt hinterlässt.
