Karlovic & Stepanek out of Wimby - Injuries

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/tennis/8745695.stm

Ivo Karlovic and Radek Stepanek have both withdrawn from Wimbledon starting on Monday because of injury.

Stepanek was seeded 22 but is out with knee trouble, which will also sideline him for the Czech Republic's Davis Cup quarter-final with Chile next month.

The big-serving Croatian Karlovic was due to have been seeded 25th, but has been troubled by a foot injury.

Victor Hanescu of Romania has been elevated to number 31 seed with the remaining seed still to be announced.

I just thought stepanek was getting back into the swing of things. He better be careful or he will fall in the rankings.

Re: Karlovic & Stepanek out of Wimby - Injuries

Both Stepananek and Karlovic had the potential to do reasonably well at Wimbledon. Their absence may be a blessing in diguise for some of the more dangerous 'floaters' to make more of an impact at the tournament.

Karlovic of course also loses QF points so he'll hope to recover them in the North American hard court swing, should the recovery from injury allow.

Knee trouble? When did Radek injure his knee?

Re: Karlovic & Stepanek out of Wimby - Injuries

I read Vaidisova's interview and she was saying she and Radek were going to marry in June

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better

Re: Karlovic & Stepanek out of Wimby - Injuries

Unfortunate for ivo this is his highlight of the entire year.

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.
