Less than two weeks ago, I published the good news that Martina Hingis's hip injury was 100% healed. Not so. The pain in her hip has crept back, and she also has back pain. She has withdrawn from the Rogers Cup Tournament in Toronto next week. Hingis was a finalist in the tournament last year, so she will lose a lot of ranking points.
Nicole Vaidisova has also withdrawn from the Toronto tournament, but she is supposedly hitting again, after recovering from mononucleosis. Also withdrawing is Sania Mirza, who cited "personal reasons."
