Re: Alex in 2005

Hi all!
Unfortunately I have some bad news. Alex had surgery on one of his eye recently. Everything went ok but it seems that he has that problem again now with the other eye...
Here's an article I found:

ALEX CORRETJA SUFRE UNA GRAVE LESIÓN OCULAR

Corren malos tiempos para el hombre que, junto a Joan Balcells, ganó aquel doble que dio la primera Davis a España. Alex Corretja, que recientemente había sido operado de un desprendimiento de membrana en un ojo, acaba de sufrir el mismo percance. El catalán, campeón del Masters en 1998 (derrotó en la final a Carlos Moyá, en cinco históricos sets) se enfrenta, pues, ante un grave problema de cara a su carrera profesional. La recaída, mientras se entrenaba, podría llevarle de nuevo al quirófano y poner en entredicho su continuidad. En los próximos días se sabrá su futuro. -

Babelfish translation
ALEX CORRETJA SUFFERS ONE SERIOUS OCULAR INJURY

For the man run bad weather who, next to Joan Balcells, gained that double that gave first Davis to Spain. Alex Corretja, that recently had been operated of a membrane loosening in an eye, finishes undergoing the same mishap. The Catalan, champion of the Masters in 1998 (he defeated in the end to Carlos Moyá, in five historical sets) faces, then, before a serious problem facing his professional race. The relapse, while it trained, could take to the operating room and again put in prohibition its continuity. In the next days its future will be known. -

Forever an ever!!?!!:

Re: Alex in 2005

It is ages since I came over here - but just wanted to say how sad I was about the news and I hope Alex gets well soon. I had eye surgery in 2003 - I know how difficult and painful it can be - I still have probems today - so Alex has all my sympathy. Get well soon sweetie

Re: Alex in 2005

Hi all!
I have bad news:
Alex Corretja podría retirarse del tenis
Miércoles 28 de Septiembre de 2005
11:21
El Mercurio en Internet / Agencias

MADRID.- El desprendimiento de la membrana de un ojo podría obligar al español Alex Corretja a retirarse del tenis, justo cuando el oriundo de Barcelona preparaba su regreso al tour de la ATP.

Corretja, quien llegó a ser número dos del mundo en 1999 y un año antes se proclamó campeón en el Masters (Singles Championships) tras derrotar en cinco sets a su compatriota Carlos Moyá, recientemente había sido intervenido quirúrgicamente del mismo problema pero sufrió una recaída que lo podría llevar otra vez al quirófano en su afán por no dejar la actividad.

El español no juega desde abril de este año, cuando cayó en la primera ronda de Estoril ante su compatriota Feliciano López. Antes también se había despedido en el debut en el torneo de Valencia tras perder con el italiano Fedérico Luzzi.

Corretja ha conseguido 17 título a lo largo de su carrera, que se inició en 1991, y también fue finalista en Roland Garros en los años 1998 y 2001.

Re: Alex in 2005

Hi!
On the Web-site of Tennis a fondo you can post messages for Alex for the next
issue! We should give him as many as messages as possible!
In the November issue of Tennis a fondo is a very cute photo from Alex and his
little daughter Carla and also a big 2-side article about his Masters-Win
in 1998! I will try to scan and post it here!
