I read in another thread that Jen injured her back in the match agianst Kim today. Since we have NO TV COVERAGE (f*ucking sucks) I was hoping that someone could give me a few details about what was said of this injury on tv today. It wasn't reported on Yahoo tennis site.

Anybody? I hope it is nothing serious.

Thanks. :wavey:

Oh what a pity !:( Jen was playing great tennis this week and for the first time this year looked happy with herself . It couldn't have come at a worse time with RG so close ....i hope its nothing serious though coz a healthy and fit Jenny would be a real threat @ RG !

It was nothing serious, she said this in her post-match interview:

Question: You seemed to have a problem with your lower back?
Answer: I was getting a little tight out there. It was nothing major. Probably just from the cold and the clay.

At least its nothing too serious - did it effect her serving today? She'll need a good back to get through the Rome draw!

I think Jen is a good player.
She didn't use injury to make an excuse to lose.
Get well soon , and good luck in Rome !

i hope she's fine, but i fear she might just be dismissing it. u know how if u dont talk about it, it must not be there. she really looks like she's in pain, but hopefully it is JUST what she says-- some tightness. with a first round bye, i think she should be ready. that gives her 3 whole days to get this taken care of.
