Injured or not, Santangelo is ranked #177. That's a disgusting loss, especially the fact Jelena lost in straight sets. This really is her worst loss in about six years (since her rookie year on tour).

If the injury is that bad, hopefully she'll learn from the past and take a fucking week or two off rather than be a globetrotter who crashes out in the first round every tournament
Well, Santangelo is actually 32 places higher than Jelena in the ranks, at #177 ;) :p

But yes, it is a very bad loss especially considering that Santangelo has done nothing since the Aus open last year. I really don't know how Jelena can expect to compete in Antwerp when she can't even win a match in a tier 5!!!

But it does sound like her injury was quite bad, so hopefully with a week off it will give it time to heal and she'll be fit for antwerp - with Jelena you never know, she may just suprise us again like at Zurich in 2003???

GO JELENA!!!! Don't give up - just stay out there and give it your best! :D

Well reports were that Jelena was a special invitee. Which means that she would receive a nice sum of money in the form of an appearance fee. So I assume that Jelena thought she would go to Hyderabad, try to play and if she lost would at least walk away with a nice sum of money.

It's a disgusting result from her but at the end of the day this is her job and sometimes when you're not playing well and earning enough money off your results, you might have to play when you don't want to just to be able to earn some cash.
