Looks pretty serious.

Anyone saw what happened?

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Almagro was standing then when he went to move one leg hit the ground before the other, jarring it, then doing the splits as he was away to return a shot, he immediaetly grabbed his left groin area and didn't get up for at least 15 minutes, had to be helped off court and couldn't walk, left on a stretcher.

Didn't look as serious when it first happened, but the fact that he couldn't get up and was down there for 15 minutes suggests I highly doubt you'll see him at Wimbledon

Also from the look on Almagro's face you could tell he was in sheer agony, maybe a tear of some degree

You never know with mugro, could just a grass burn.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

That sounds serious, hope he's okay.

Looked to me like he was moving for a ball, slipped and did sort of a split, immediately grabbing his groin/upper thigh. It didn't look that bad when it happened but you could tell he was really hurting and the fact that he just lay there and couldn't get up to walk on it seems pretty serious or he is a huge drama queen which didn't appear to be the case.

I'd be surprised if he can play Wimbledon.

Shit, I wish him all the best. Even though he is generally a prick.

Too bad
He should pull out of Wimbledon since he's most likely going to heal by then

bad luck. Groin pulls are often more painful than they are damaging though

very sad news.Hopefully it's not something serious so he can be ok for Wimby but I doubt it.
