Former French Open champion Anastasia Myskina is battling a foot injury ahead of the US Open, which starts next week.
The Russian was beaten 4-6 6-3 6-4 by Italy's Mara Santangelo in the first round of the WTA event in New Haven.
"Of course I tried hard today but maybe not 100% because it is the US Open next week," said the 25-year-old Myskina.
"I wanted to try to see how my foot feels. It was OK but I will see the doctor. Then I have a few days to get some rest."
Oh god, four of my biggest favs might miss the open :hysteric:

Why not pull out of New Haven if she's dealing with a foot injury the week before a GS? She makes no sense to me, it sounds so stupid. So either she's making an excuse for her loss or she's really that stupid to play on an injured foot right before the USO.

Get well soon, Nasty.

As much as i dont want her to, i think Anastasia should miss the US Open ... she is suffering from elbow and foot problems, and consequently has lost a few matches. I think she should take a month off to ged rid of the injury and to clear her head as well ... but whatever she decides, we will always love her ... right? hahaha

Aug 23rd, 2006, 06:42 AM
I don't think the injury is that bad. I think she will still play the US Open.

Aug 23rd, 2006, 07:45 AM
