Martina withdraws...

May 10, 2002

ROME (AP) -- Martina Hingis, Monica Seles and Amanda Coetzer will not play in the Italian Open.

Hingis, ranked No. 4, withdrew from next week's tournament because of a left foot injury that also forced her to miss the German Open.

Seles, ranked sixth, will miss the tournament because of a stomach virus, and Coetzer, who lost in the first round of the German Open, said a muscle problem would keep her out of the tournament.

Emmanuelle Gagliardi of Switzerland, Gala Leon Garcia of Spain and Janette Husarova of Slovakia moved into the draw.

Let's hope Martina is back at RG!!


The cowie is back...

As much as I don't like to see her withdraw from tourneys, it's a sensible thing to do, because it gives her 2 weeks rest before RG, and if she had played this week, maybe she'd have come back too soon and missed RG, I just hope the injury isn't as serious though as I think

This is a sensible decision. I don't want her to rush anything, even if it means sacrificing her ranking.

I'm not happy with it, but I think it's better and I'm sure Martina knows what's best for her.

Get well soon Martina! I U!

Marti, whatever you do: Listen to your heart & proceed with confidence!
