The Associated PressPublished: July 15, 2008

LONDON: Austria's Stefan Koubek and Italy's Karin Knapp have withdrawn from the tennis tournaments at the Beijing Olympics because of injury.

The 31-year-old Koubek has a back injury and will be replaced by Australia's Chris Guccione in the men's singles competition, with Mara Santangelo replacing her fellow Italian in the women's singles.

Knapp, 21, hasn't played since losing to Maria Sharapova in the third round of the French Open last month.

There were some news on tennis webs here in Brazil about a month ago stating that Karin Knapp had to stop playing tennis because of some heart condition. Does anyone know anything about this? Just today a hungarian olympic champion died while training because of a heart stroke.

Why does Santangelo get in and not Garbin? :o Perhaps SR? I forget what Mara's is.

I hope that's not true about Karin and the heart condition.

La Commissione medica del Coni ha ritenuto l'azzurra non idonea a partecipare ai Giochi a causa dei problemi cardiaci che accusa

Niente Olimpiadi per Karin Knapp. La tennista azzurra, fermata dalla Commissione medica del Coni per un leggero problema di natura cardiaca, è stata dichiarata "non idonea". La Federtennis ha chiesto alla Federazione internazionale di poter iscrivere Mara Santangelo, al posto della Knapp, nel torneo olimpico di singolare femminile.

Il direttore sanitario dell'Istituto di Medicina e Scienza dello Sport, dottor Carlo Tranquilli, ha inviato oggi alla Federazione italiana tennis la seguente comunicazione: "In data 10 luglio 2008 si è riunita, presso il nostro Istituto, la Commissione Medica convocata per discutere il caso dell'atleta Karin Knapp, appartenente alla vostra federazione. La Commissione Medica ritiene attualmente l'atleta non idonea al conseguimento della qualifica di Probabile Olimpico".

Mara Santangelo, indicata dalla Fit come sostituta della Knapp nel torneo di singolare, era già risultata eleggibile dalla stessa federazione internazionale. La Santangelo era già iscritta nel torneo olimpico di doppio. La Knapp era stata fermata per un paio di settimane dalla Commissione medica del Coni per un leggero problema di natura cardiaca scoperto nel corso delle visite mediche disposte dal Coni per gli atleti in odore di Olimpiade.
