Re: Eugh who is this poor player?

Michael Stich injuring his ankle in the Vienna indoor.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

You saw the video didn't you? It pretty much ended his career.

Re: Eugh who is this poor player?

I can't confirm who it is, but what's sure is that it's already aching a lot only watching! So I can't stand imagining how it was for the poor guy!!!

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

It's Stich Choupi I was watching the match.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Eugh who is this poor player?

Don't worry, I trust you. I was only saying that I couldn't confirm, as I didn't see the match and the back wasn't really recognizable.

Re: Eugh who is this poor player?

It was in 1995 against Woodbridge, that Woodbridge has been invloved in matches like this before.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Eugh who is this poor player?

Woodbridge? Well, I guess that the only match I've seen of him, I mean complete!, it was against Agassi in RG, a loooong time ago. He lost in 3 sets. That's all I remember!

He cracked two ligaments in his left ankle at 2-2 and 30-15. A very bad moment for him, he was crying out in pain at this moment. But he recovered very well and he was back only a few weeks later and won a title in his 2nd tournament back on Tour in February 1996, beating Ivanisvic on a fast carpet (two things that he liked: carpet and playing Ivanisevic). Also he played Vienna again the next season. He admitted it's hard for him to come back to this place, but also didn't want to run away from this memory. He was defeated by Becker in the 2nd round who was back then fighting for his last ticket getting entry for the year-ending ATP World Championships.

This ankle injury didn't end his career later, he was moving just fine again and was recovered almost like before. It were his chronical and always again up-coming shoulder problems which he carried for long time and through which he played for years despite until he finally had to call it a day way too early and saying "I don't want to have all this shit anymore" and retiring.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Eugh who is this poor player?

Oooh boy...never seen that before. Poor guy, I can't even begin to imagine how that must have felt.

It's pretty pathetic that that video is supposed to be funny, according to the people who put it on that site.

It's well known that situations in which ppl are falling, no matter if they hurt themselves or not, are funny and laughable. But I agree that it's pathetic that those who find it funny are so narrowminded as to the cqs of the falls...
