It's hard to breathe in L.A.
Yesterday, Eleni Daniilidou, who was involved in a close and exciting contest against Maria Sharapova in the East West Bank Classic, retired because of respiratory problems. Daniilidou has been sick all week, and the match proved to be too much for her. Today, Daniela Hantuchova retired during the second set of her match against Elena Dementieva. The reason? Respiratory problems.
