Career-threatening injury for Ljubo?? :(

At 6-4 1*-0 30-15 he hits a big first serve and hurts is lower back. Tries to get to his chair, but just falls down half way and never gets up the physio was out there for a while, but Ljubo was really struggling. Couldn't even lift his upper body to get his arm out from under him. He got up with a lot of help after about 15 minutes and slowly limped over to his wife (who was going crazy because they wouldn't let her on the court, even after he retired).

Ljubo was playing a pretty solid early match up til then. Big serves whenever he needed them (Becker didn't get a single return back when he had bp) and breaking Becker in the two games he pressed. So sad

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

It looked really bad. He already had lower back problems in Australia and recovered, but this time it looked much more serious

This is so sad, I cant even find words. I guess Ljubo really took all he had in his body to win Indian Wells, what a champion Ljubo is and if this is the end of his career it is a more worthy end than most players get.

Wow. I really hope he'll be okay. Such a shame to have a bad injury after having such a great tournament last week.

Re: Career-threatening injury for Ljubo?? :(

That would be quite the way to finish your career, after winning your biggest title. Might be the perfect time to call it a day.

Then again it's always better when a player can make his own decision before his body lets up.

You were obviously in hibernation for the last couple of weeks, I take it.

I really hope he can come back from this, but if it does turn out to be career-ending, the only good thing is that it happened now and not a week ago.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
