Lindsay has pulled out of the final of the Sanex Championships due to an injury to her knee.

Hopefully it will heal before the Aussie Open.

This is indicative of the whole year, promising much, then ending in a bust. Record numbers of injuries, withdrawals and no shows. A lot of it was outside the control of the WTA. No one could have predicted 9-11, or long breaks for Kournikova, Davenport and Seles.

Here's to a recovery for Lindsay and the WTA in 2002!

Well firstly, I really do hope Lindsay is OK for the start of the Australian hardcourt season. At the moment there appears to be doubt over that being the case. (?)

Secondly, I agree with Rollo that this is indicative of the season this year. Forget Hingis losing the #1, Hingis being at #1 with no slams, Capriati being #1 then losing it again, Lindsay getting to #1 with no slams, this is the WORST possible permutation to the end of the season.

How disappointing! <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

But this is what Lindsay gets for playing four weeks in a row. And it got her to no.1 so maybe it wasn't such a bad plan.

Do you think that the WTA should come up with some type of "Match Limit" where a player could only play "X" number of matches within a given period of time...so that they don't overshedule themselves toward injury?

It also makes withdrawals due to fatigue look more "legitimate."

Initially, it seems like a plan that would hurt a player like Hingis...but, then again, it might also help her focus and stuff.

friend, it happened during the Kim-Lindsay semi-final yesterday. At 5-2 in the tie break in the third set, Lindsay hurt her knee while trying to reach for a drop-shot. I had escaped my notice, I confess, but GoDominique clearly saw it and posted a message on this board right after the match, wondering whether Lindsay was okay. And this was long before we received any news about Lindsay being injured.

I think there's possibly some doubt over how serious the injury is, because it's the same one that had Lindsay miss RG this year.

Hopefully it's not too serious and she can be back training etc soon.

It sounds really bad. Let's hope it won't have much effect on her Aus Open preparation <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

Get well soon Linds!
