The Easiest Gold For Luxembourg

NICOSIA, 5 June 2009 - Luxembourg’s Mandy Minella and Claudine Schaul celebrated the gold medal in the women’s tennis doubles event on Friday without even taking to the court.

The two tennis athletes were pronounced the winners after their Luxembourg opponents were forced to pull out of the final because one of the players failed to shrug off an injury sustained in the previous semifinal.

Luxembourg’s Marina Novac had injured her knee in the semifinal victory over Malta and couldn’t recover in time for the final, leaving both herself and Kathinka Von Deichmann out of contention for the big game.

Novac is expected to be out of action for around five weeks.

The bronze medal was shared by Monaco and Malta.
