Ana Ivanovic has withdrawn from the Qatar Ladies Open, which begins next week. Ivanovic is experiencing a recurrence of the abdominal muscle injury she sustained in Australia.
Ivanovic is currently without a coach, and reports that she doesn't want to rush into hiring one.
(Petra Kvitova is also experiencing an abdominal muscle problem which, one hopes, will be healed by rest. She is scheduled to play in Doha.)
