Davydenko out of AO with heel problem

Davydenko out of Australian Open


World number five Nikolay Davydenko will miss this month's Australian Open because of a heel injury.

The Russian pulled out of his match against Lukas Dlouhy at the warm-up event in Chennai, India, on Wednesday after the problem flared up.

"It's obviously serious since I'll even miss the Australian Open," he said.

Davydenko reached the Masters Cup final in November, beating Andy Murray in the semis, and would have been among the favourites in Melbourne.

"I'm having acute pain in my left heel that flared up last week," the Russian added.

"I've had painkillers even today, and the doctors here in Chennai have tried some therapy for a few days, but I now need to fix this before playing any more tournaments.

"I need to check my heel and that's why I'm going home, to see what's happening and what's wrong.

"The problem started last year, but I thought I could still continue playing. It was (painful) even when I played the Shanghai Masters in November."

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".

Re: Davydenko out of Australian Open!

This sucks, and it feels like a surprise withdrawal out of nowhere. I wanted to go see him. I hope he recovers soon.

Re: Davydenko out of Australian Open!

Dlouhy w/o win is confirmed.

Why couldn't he retire in the first round to give us a Köllerer/Dlouhy match?
