Re: Estonia's Finest (yes better than Kanepi): Jurgen Zopp

That is so awful to hear....3-4 months is horrible...Just when he was steadily moving through the Top 100 Now his ranking will plummet...Hope he doesn't lose too much ground in the rankings and gets back very soon...Get well, Jurgen

Jürgen fell out of top 100, down 20 places to 119th And he will be gone for 2-3 months.

Re: Estonia's Finest (yes better than Kanepi): Jurgen Zopp

He was at the opening of the new fitness centre at one of our tennis centres. He said the back has improved but still not well. Some doctors say he can play in 2 months, some that it will take much longer. So it's impossible to predict more exactly. He just wants to get well first and doesn't worry about the ranking any more, he's wearing the corset and doing special excercises atm. His 'dream' is to be back for RG but we'll see.
In one interview last week he said he hopes to start tennis practice in April. I just wish him all the best.

Also today's photo for his fangirlsboys here. Not too fond of the new short haircut but he still looks cute.

Re: Estonia's Finest (yes better than Kanepi): Jurgen Zopp

I was really hoping he would break through further into the Top 100 this year So sad that he will lose so many points from the clay season which he played pretty well last year..This must have been one hell of a back injury...Serious stuff considering those can be career ending a la Safina Poor, Jurgen

Hi Jamie!
Not only Safina, many players have back problems, even the GOAT Federer. Marat Safin also had back issues in 2001 after playing too much, don't know exactly if it was a stress fracture. Zopp has a stress fracture of the 5th vertebra.

Re: Estonia's Finest (yes better than Kanepi): Jurgen Zopp

Stress fractures to the back are one of the most frustrating injuries in sport. Simply can't do anything for months. The ranking doesn't matter for the moment, just have to get healthy and then hopefully it will take care of itself. Just unfortunate that all his hard work over the last couple of years has come undone.

Cheers for the updates Maria

Thanks Maria I feel bad for him, just when he was breaking through...When he does come back, he will have to start all over playing Challengers Will he qualify at all for a PR? If he is out for six months, he should be eligible for one, right?

Of course he will get a PR.

I hope the recovery is going well. It looks like he will need to get in shape as well; it's easy to gain some pounds if you can't do anything. He was having such an amazing year too

Re: Estonia's Finest (yes better than Kanepi): Jurgen Zopp

After 5 and a half months, Jürgen is finally able to play some tennis again. He doesn't serve or move around a lot but at least he can hold a racket and do something with it. Tests show that he is recovering well but he don't know when he can return to tour. Still feels some pain during the practice but physically he is in good shape, he has done workout a lot recently.

Re: Estonia's Finest (yes better than Kanepi): Jurgen Zopp

Jurgen has been out on court hitting with Henri Kontinen the last couple of days. Great that he is up and moving again but it will still be a while before he is ready to compete properly on tour again...
