Kuznetsova pulls out of Hong Kong exhibition with bronchitis

HONG KONG (AP) -Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova pulled out of the Champions Challenge on Saturday because of bronchitis.

It wasn't immediately clear if the illness would prevent her from playing in the Australian Open, which starts Jan. 15.

Kuznetsova, the 2004 U.S. Open winner, appeared fatigued during the tournament and struggled with her movement.

She lost in three sets to Switzerland's Patty Schnyder in the first round on Wednesday, but beat China's Zheng Jie in straight sets Friday in the losers' playoff semifinal.

Kuznetsova was scheduled to face China's Yan Zi in the final on Saturday and play in the doubles final.

She has a bye in Sydney. But she should pull out.
The AO is much more important. And it isn't smart for her to play Sydney.

I agree. best if she rests up for the week to prevent any further problems from occuring.

Sveta always honors her commitments, so if she withdraws, then she's really sick.
If she's 70%, she'll show up.
