Ivanovic to rest for at least one week
LONDON -- Former French Open champion Ana Ivanovic has been told to rest for at least a week after sustaining a slight tear in her left thigh during her fourth-round match at Wimbledon on Monday.
The 13th-seeded Serb left the court in tears following one game in the second set after dropping the first set 6-1 to defending champion Venus Williams.
"The 21-year-old has a micro-tear in her left thigh muscle and must rest for the next one to two weeks," a statement on her Web site said.
"Although highly painful, the injury is not serious and, considering that her next planned tournament is not until 3 August, it is not expected to affect her playing schedule," the statement said.
