Peer withdraws from Rome

Shahar Peer has withdrawn from the Internazionali BNL d'Italia because of a shoulder injury. There is also a question as to whether she will be able to compete in Strasbourg and Roland Garros.

Peer will be replaced in the draw by Francesca Schiavone, who will be replaced by a lucky loser.

hi Diane,
I'm just watching the start of the third set in the Safina/Dementieva final on Eurosport, and the commentator has just said that Amelie has withdrawn from Rome..... :(

just to let you know, in case it hasn't been announced on any other channels: I'm so disappointed; apparently it's still a problem with her ribs, and breathing.

loving this final, though!

Thanks, Claire. I just saw it on the Web right after I read this. How sad.
