Injured Shaughnessy retires in first round at Gold Coast

Poor Meghann Shaughnessy. She arrived at the Mondial Women's Hardcourts tournament at the last minute because she had played (and won) in Serena Williams' place at the Hopman Cup. But in the middle of leading Francesca Schiavone (6-0, 1-0), she injured her left knee and had to retire.

What a way to begin the season: defeating Mirza, then taking a solid lead against Schiavone, then getting hurt. Here's hoping she's okay for the Australian Open.
