Re: AO : Simon withdraws, right knee injury

Oh as a result, Isner is the 33rd seed and faces Seppi in the first round instead.

Re: AO : Simon withdraws, right knee injury

Is this the same problem that plagued him last year? Tendinitis isn't it?

Re: AO : Simon withdraws, right knee injury

Simon wasn't a top player in 2009 anyway, complete non-factor

And yet his draw will still somehow be 2-3x harder than Nadal's. Just wait for that cotton candy draw to open up.

Simon is a crushing loss... probably won't watch AO now.

Re: AO : Simon withdraws, right knee injury

Good to see, he's been dragging himself tournaments for months now. Get proper recovery, then come back

Yes, tough indeed that he gets a tricky draw after all these years and records.

Good to see you have the right attitude about Simon.

Re: AO : Simon withdraws, right knee injury

i kind of expected the news though. he didn't sound like he was ready. i hope he lets it rest properly, it was troubling him for most of last year.

get well my sexy simon!

Re: AO : Simon withdraws, right knee injury

That's great news. He wasn't fit to play anyway, glad he finally saw sense. Hope he can get some rest and let the knee heal properly before coming back.
