Dokic is the biggest mystery and amusement in that list :lol: I wonder if she actually shows up.

Krajicek has had heart problems? :confused: but she's so young, is it so serious? :unsure:

Dokic deserves an own thread. :worship:

where is Evgeniya Rodina ? :scratch:

Also Bacsinszky + Sevastova are some of the names that have come back from injuries this year.

Now there's only players which will play their 1st tournament after injuries in next few weeks. I'm working on list of players coming back in whole year ;)

Nov 10th, 2012, 09:29 AM
also I remember Szavay also came back this year, and Chakvetadze for like a month :lol:

Nov 10th, 2012, 09:32 AM
Rodina, I was wondering the same thing...

I just hope Jelena plays:scared:

ِAnna had a serious back injury at the beginning of the year and couldn't fully recover from it so far. She retired from her last match in Tashkent and didn't play after that.

Erm, I guess Kleybanova deserves a mention. I read somewhere that she is contemplating a comeback next February/March.

Petra Cetkovska returned to action last week by taking part in an ITF tournament (50k) played in Nantes. This week she is playing in Equeurdreville (ITF 25k). Petra had been injured since the Olympics.

Rodina got married this spring

Krajicek has not confirmed she will play in Toyota, so it's unsure when she will return :shrug: But yes, she hasn't won a match since Miami and hasn't played since the USO. She had a knee injury at first, got surgery and then got ill after Birmingham which happened to be heart problems.

I expect her to return at the Dutch Masters halfway December.

I hope Dokic will find court this time.

Correction, Krajicek has already withdrawn from Toyota.

She is on the EL for 75k Dubai but I expect her to withdraw.

Nov 10th, 2012, 05:41 PM
You should add Petko :cheer: shes down for 75k dubai!

Nov 10th, 2012, 06:13 PM
Krajicek isn't playing in Opole. First tournament scheduled is Dubai indeed, but can't see her playing a PRO tournament this year. If she comes back, she'll probably play Dutch Masters :)

Hopefully Dokic does show up!
