Arantxa Rus has withdrawn from the Monastir WTA tournament, which starts on Monday. The best tennis player in the Netherlands suffered an ankle injury earlier this week and did not recover in time for the hard court tournament in Tunisia.
The 32-year-old Russian, number 51 in the world, sprained her ankle in Seoul on Wednesday and eventually gave up in South Korea.
Tallon Greekpoor, the best tennis player, still has doubts about participating in the ATP tournament in Stockholm. He called in sick in Shanghai a week ago and was unable to train for a number of days. Greekpoor (27), who is 24th in the world rankings, will decide this weekend whether he will travel to Sweden. The tournament starts on Monday.
Botic van de Zandschulp will be making an appearance in Antwerp next week.
