On the advice of her doctor, Justine Henin has withdrawn from the China Open in Beijing. Henin has respiratory asthma; in fact, she was having difficulty breathing during her U.S. Open semifinal.
Jelena Jankovic may accept a wild card into the tournament, which is an infuriating thought if you are a Jankovic fan. She needs to stop playing, not enter another tournament.
The good news is that Amelie Mauresmo is confirmed for Beijing.
Henin's condition may keep her out of the Stuttgart tournament, too.
