Amanda Coetzer lost her first round match today against Katarina Stretbonik 2-6, 6-4, 3-6. Amanda lost to Stretbonik earlier this year in Tokyo. It seems that after a good start to the year; Amanda has gone into a bad slump. I was really hoping that after good results in Sydney, Melbourne, Memphis and Indian Wells, plus her win at Acapulco, that Amanda was back. However, with a 1r loss in Miami, consecutive 3r losses in Charleston and Amelia Island and a 2r loss in Rome, it appears that Amanda's tendinitis is still a problem. If so, I hope that she withdrawals from doubles and saves herself for the grass court season.
