Serena Williams has a badly sprained left ankle, Roger Federer an aching back and Kim Clijsters a sore left hip.
Add in a limping but "I'll be OK" Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal playing with a sore left shoulder from the end of last season and the advance tournaments for this year's Australian Open are beginning to look like a star-studded casualty ward.
Williams' injury seemes to be the most serious of the bunch, and could affect her chances of winning the singles title for the sixth time at Melbourne Park. She rolled over on it badly in the second round at the Brisbane International and pulled out of the tournament several hours later.
