Get well soon Jamie, all the best.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Tough luck for the kid. I wish him quick recovery. Life can hang on a thread even for the best of us.

Don't know him, but of course... all the best to him! This sucks.

Re: Britain's Jamie Baker - just out of intensive care

ohh, Jamie

I was wondering why he was pulling out of the tournaments, and it seems serious, fortunately he will recover. He was making the transition futures-challengers and was the player of the month at ITF site in February

Re: Britain's Jamie Baker - just out of intensive care

Here's another article. http://www.theherald.co.uk/sport/hea...ery_period.php

Sounds really nasty, I'm so glad he's ok. hug: I like him a lot, I hope he makes a full recovery. It'll be sad if he'snot able to play Wimbledon, but better that he rests if he needs to.
