Dementieva withdraws from Wimbledon

The rumor was swirlling yesterday, but I wanted to wait until I had absolute confirmation to announce it: Elena Dementieva, because of her calf injury, has withdrawn from the Wimbledon Championships. Dementieva, a semifinalist last year, had been seeded 5th for the 2010 tournament.

Too bad about this. It is getting closer and closer to the point where she probably won't win a major (never say never after Schiavone, right?). Dementieva has always been so fit and athletic it is difficult to see her injured.
