Updates on sick and injured players

Amelie Mauresmo has been training for two weeks, and is doing well, other than experiencing sore legs at night.

Sam Stosur has been back in Australia for a week now, after her lengthy medical timeout in the U.S. Her condition is described as "not 100%" but she is due to begin light training soon.

Zheng Jie has been practicing, and--according to one of the tennis authorities in China--has made a complete recovery from the ankle injury that has kept her out of play since the French Open. She is, according to the official, working on regaining confidence, and will play in the Australian Open.

Li Na, out since she sustained a rib inflammation during the summer, has been recovering in Germany and is also scheduled to play in Melbourne.

many thanks for the updates, especially Amelie; I'm knitting a pair of 'Amelie' dedicated socks, in that beautiful coral shade she wore a while back.....have finished one, one to go! Thanks for such a wonderful blog.

You're welcome. I am more concerned about Amelie's state of mind, having lost so much momentum, than I am about her physical health.

yes, absolutely....she is quite vulnerable to self doubt, I think; I do hope she can get her inner strength back to its best: how I would love her to win Roland Garros!
