Paradorn getting treatment

[TENNIS] Thai star Paradorn Srichaphan is spending a week in Bangkok having treatment on his injured right wrist before returning to the court to prepare for the Asian Games.

The Thai No 1 is spending about 20-30 minutes a day having ultrasounds and getting treatment at Smitijev Hospital in Bangkok to cure the wrist injury which has bothered him for most of the season.

The good news for the Thai star is that he does not have to have an operation - there were rumours earlier this year that surgery was the only option for the former world No 8.

"The doctor said my condition is not serious. So ultrasounds and treatment should be enough for the time

being,'' said Paradorn, who was advised by his doctor to rest more as he is also recovering from an illness which forced him to pull out of his match against Juan Ignacio Chela of Chile in the Paris Masters Series.

Paradorn has previously

had some therapy for his injured wrist, but was never completely cured because of his commitments to play in tournaments.

"I have to stop training for a week and go for the treatment every day to allow my condition to improve. After that I can pick up a racquet again," he told The Nation.

Paradorn's season is finished and his ranking has dropped to No 53 this week. But in December he will be defending his title in the Asian Games. Four years ago he defeated South Korean Lee Hyung-taik to win the men's singles gold medal.

At this year's games he is likely to only contest the men's singles and might skip the men's team event, despite the fact that Thailand's men's team have a good chance of winning the gold medal.

"I'd love to play the team event, but I have to listen to my body. I don't want to play too much only to injure myself before the new season,'' added Paradorn.

Meanwhile, fifth-seed Danai Udomchoke was put to the test by Noam Okun of Israel before moving into the second round of the US$75,000 (Bt2.8 million) Flea Market Cup Busan Challenger tournament in South Korea yesterday.
Danai, who surged to No 95 in the world rankings this week, won the first set comfortably but struggled in the following two sets before winning 6-2 4-6 7-5. Danai will next play Australian Alexander Peya, who defeated Switzerland's Marco Chiudinelli 6-1 6-1.
