Youzhny has a back injury. Bizarrely Ernests gets through to the 3rd round with 2 retirements
But it's not unique,or completely unexpected to me...its the end of the season,many players are exhausted or carrying injuries.
I doubted Youzhny would be fully fit,and he had added pressure of trying to qualify for London,proving too much for the Russian. Youzhny got sick and couldn't play Moscow,pulled out of Valencia injured...understandably under prepared.
