Update on Lisicki
Sabine Lisicki was sufferning with a shoulder injury recently, and I wondered whether she would make it to Roland Garros, or--if she did--what kind of shape she would be in. The good news is that the shoulder problem appears to be history. The bad news is that she was admitted to a hospital three days ago with such severe abdominal pains that the first suspicion was appendicitis. Appendicitis has now been ruled out, however. Of course, she withdrew from Warsaw, and--as of now--it is uncertain whether she will play in the French Open.
