Injured Venus Retires From Australian Open



MELBOURNE, Jan 21 (Reuters) - Venus Williams retired from her Australian Open third round match against Germany’s Andrea Petkovic with injury on Friday after lasting just seven points.

The seven-times grand slam champion pulled up with what appeared to be a groin strain after lunging for a return with the German leading by a game and 30-0 in Melbourne.

“It was just too painful to move,” fourth seed Williams told reporters after aggravating an injury that troubled her in the previous round.

“The last 48 hours I did as much pain management and recovery that I could. A lot times you get this adrenaline that blocks pain. I just didn’t get enough of that today.”

Williams, a Melbourne finalist in 2003, strained a muscle in the same area during her second round victory over Czech Sandra Zahlavova on Wednesday.

Her retirement leaves a grand slam without an American woman in the last 16 for only the fourth time, the last time coming at the French Open in 2008.

Petkovic moves on to face former champion Maria Sharapova in the fourth round.

“It’s super disappointing,” said Williams. “This is just not how I envisioned my Australian Open being. I’ve never had to retire from a grand slam.

“I was just hoping for some magic that I could recover. I’m just going to focus on getting healthy and coming back,” added the former world number one, who last won a major at Wimbledon in 2008.

“I love tennis and I’ve got a lot of great tennis in me. I love my job, so (there’s) no end in sight.

Petkovic had mixed feelings after going through, and earning A$38,500—the difference between winning and losing in the third round—for her four minutes on court.

“I feel very weird about tonight,” said the German, who matched her fourth round appearance at last year’s U.S. Open.

“Obviously I’m one round further which is great. But on the other hand I really felt great today. I really wanted to give it a real go.”

The sisters took the doubles titles now its up to Venus to take the next step at Wimbledon. I just don't see big things happening for her in the red dirt of RG.
Comment by Jae on January 21, 2010 at 12:49pm
So Venus will now face Dellacqua in 3rd rd. Lets Goo Vee!!
Comment by Jae on January 21, 2010 at 12:06pm
Well i think if she continue to play consistent anything is possible. I think her game fits well at the AO. I see a potential QF match with Wozniacki.
Comment by Jae on January 14, 2010 at 4:23pm
Well she did well in the hong kong exhibition which she played some good tennis. The week before in Thailand was really bad for her. Im just happy to see her with some matches in before the AO. If she can play to her ability then i think anything possible.

To be honest, I don't think very well. V is my girl but she seems not to every really be prepared for the AO. In addition I think she only has played 2 exhibition type tournments to start the season, and faired poorly in both.

So much talenet, but the focus is not their for what ever reason.

I say that to say she is my pick, but I don't see it happening. I would love to be proven wrong
