Just the same Knee, injury that kept her out for 3mths this year.. I would say she would be doubtful for this event..

Perhaps Anna will take her spot, since she is playing Monica on the 29th November..

thanks ajayares.... I don't know what to make of it (Anna taking a spot). I know she needs some match practice, but she also needs a little rest before a long 2002 season.

on emore question about Linds: she missed FO this year, right? But she did play at Wimbledon and Ericsson. So I guess, she missed the whole clay court season. Then it becomes even more impressive how she was able to finish #1.

Yeah, she injured herself against Elena in the QF at the ericsson in March, tried to be ready for the French in 2 mths later, but reinjured her knee after the draw was done, on the Friday before the event began, then made her return to tennis at Eastbourne, so all up missed almost 3 mths..

She did say that the pain in her knee this time was worst than last.. what that means, who knows..

As for Anna taking her spot, who knows, I was only suggesting it, since she was playing Monica only 2 days prior..<br />You are right those, she needs a small break, before she luanches herself full steam ahead into 2002
