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.
Thank you for great moments and inspiration!
