Srebotnik tells her story
And a sad story it is. Apparently, Katarina Srebotnik's Achilles injury was not terribly serious, but the shoulder injury was, and it continues to bother her. Srebotnik explains that she was bored while she was waiting for her foot to heal, and she may have overdone it on the machines at the gym, where she injured her shoulder.
During the 10-month layoff, Srebotnik's long-time coach, Biljana Veselinovic, decided to stop coaching her. Srebotnik is currently auditioning coaches, and at the end of the year, she will select the person who is to be her next coach.
In 2008, Srebotnik was number 20 in the world in singles, and number 4 in doubles.
