Malisse lost yesterday his 1st round match at the Mons Challenger against Muller. After the match he told the press he already heard his knee crackin' during training a week ago. He said he could play, but only at 70 percent of his capacities.
He will take some rest and then he will decide if he will play again this season or if he will call it a day for this year. Xavier has planned to play 3 or 4 tournaments the following weeks, but he told it would maybe be better to look forward to next season.
