Re: Henri Kontinen

from his website:
Quote:
Dispite all the setbacks during the past year, I am feeling very positive at the moment.
I had a second operation on my left knee last Thursday (11th of October). The operation was this time done by a well known knee specialist Håkan Alfredson from Sweden. He has had great results with many famous footballers and other athletes. He estimated that the operation would take approximately 45 minutes, but during the operation he found something that hadn't been found in the MRI or Ultra. In the end it took him nearly two hours to finish his job with my knee, but afterwards he was very happy with the result. He said it was one of the toughest knees they have had to operate, but he was very positive about my recovery. He estimated that it will take approximately three months before I can play tennis fully, but already after the first week I am allowed to start working with the rehabilitation.
All in all, I'm feeling very optimistic and I wish everyone a nice autumn!

Re: Henri Kontinen

He didn't really tell anywhere what his exact plans are right?

Looks like for the first time in his career, he has the desire to build up a decent ranking in doubles? If that is his plan, he is basically forced to play futures in the beginning, because his ranking is just too bad to enter challengers. Another title would move him back to the top 700 at least. I hope Jarkko plays with him in Tampere, would certainly make them the title favourites there.

Re: Henri Kontinen

he is just playing doubles right now to test his body and see how the knee feels. he doesnt have on mind becoming a doubles specialist right now. as soon as he feels ok, he will play singles tournaments too, instead of the doubles. imo, its a great decition from him to team up with christo now again, 5 years later, they were a really good team in doubles, and so far they are impressive together these 2 weeks...

Re: Henri Kontinen

But he seems awfully serious with doubles though? I mean Rungkat even came to Finland etc, I think they might really try to go for ATP tour in doubles or something. Not like that really rules out one playing singles either though , I don't really think he is done with singles yet either though and I don't think he would give up on it too easily but maybe he sees doubles as possibility too still, not like one makes it so easily to ATP tour anyway and given his injury history etc doubles seems way safer bet for sure, he has really high potential as doubles player anyway IMO (not saying it will be easy for sure still but I think he is likely to succeed in doubles if he stays healthy at all.)

Re: Henri Kontinen

So third doubles title now in row without dropping a set, seems it is time for break, wonder if he will train for Tampere open challenger (it will start in three weeks.) I guess he might play Tallinn 15k future doubles with Micke or someone else before that as it is conveniently clay tournament before Tampere.
