Unhappy Monica withdraws from Italian Open

Hingis, Seles and Coetzer withdraw from next week's Italian Open

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!

Bad news ... I hope it's not serious and it won't affect Monica in her preparation for Roland Garros

I'm very sorry for all Italian fans who wanted to go to this tournament and see Monica

Get well soon, Monica

This also means Monica doesn't have a chance to be seeded in the top 4 at Roland Garros. Serena will be probably seeded 4th.

Monica speaks:

Im really disappointed I wont be able to make it to Rome this year, said Seles. Its such a wonderful city and I was looking forward to the Italian Open after missing it last year through injury.

Ive had some great matches in Rome and I have a lot of good memories from over the years, especially winning the title again two years ago. I'm confident of being ready and fully fit for Roland Garros.
