Re: When do Schalken and Escudé return?

You're not the only one.

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.

Does anyone know anything about the return date of Martin Verkerk.

I've heard the Escude plans to return in February.

Not for quite some time thank you!!! He was on tv last week saying the AO would be too soon.

Sjeng Schalken is busy practicing. He was on tv a few weeks ago and he said that he will only return if he's able to give 100% or more. I hope Sjeng does return, he's a nice guy

You mean Sjeng might never return?

I had no idea his injuries were so serious.

Well he just doesn't feel he's able to compete on top level...also I think all his rankingpoints are gone, so he has to start all over again. On his website he says: he's been working for 3 months now. He could be back in a month's time, but it could also be April....

He's been trying for 18 months now....and mentally he's also tired. So he has to work on his mental health as well.

it's not that he doesn't want to....he just won't go on court if he knows he'll be off court again within 30 minutes or so....

About Escudé, in L'équipe of today, they say that he trains 3 hours a day. He is going to Val Thorens, in the Alps, to train on his fitness with the other french players (Mathieu, Gasquet...) And he will be able to serve within about 2 weeks.

Re: When do Schalken and Escudé return?

News about Sjeng Schalken (bad news unfortunately ):

http://teletekst.nos.nl/tekst/657-01.html

**Sjeng Schalken zal de komende maanden
geen wedstrijden spelen.Bij de nummer
230 van de wereld is een lichte hernia
geconstateerd.Hij hoeft niet onder het
mes,hij mag ook trainen,maar het spelen
van wedstrijden is hem afgeraden.

Schalken ontbreekt in ieder geval in
januari op de Australian Open en heeft
zich afgemeld voor het Davis Cup-duel
Nederland-Rusland in februari.

Vanwege een achillespees-blessure kwam
Schalken de afgelopen maanden niet in
actie."Ik ben blij dat ik nu weet wat
ik mankeer",zei hij."Maar ik baal dat
ik nu weer door een sluipmoordenaar te
grazen ben genomen."Een jaar geleden
kampte hij met de ziekte van Pfeiffer.


Translation:

Sjeng Schalken won't play any matches in the next few months. He's been diagnosed with a slight hernia (I assume they mean a lumbar disc herniation here). No operation is needed, he's allowed to keep training, but he's been adviced not to play any matches.

Schalken will miss the Australian open in January and he also pulled out of the Davis match Netherlands-Russia in February.

Schalken was out of action because of a achillestendon injury in the past few months. "I'm glad I know what's wrong with me now", he said. "However, it feels very bad that i've been surprised by another hidden problem now". One year ago he had Mononucleosis.
