Thomas Johansson out for four months with eye injury

Quote:
ROTTERDAM, Netherlands, Feb 24 (Reuters) - Swede Thomas Johansson will be sidelined for four months after injuring his eye during a training session on Thursday.

Johansson, the world number 13, was preparing for Friday's doubles quarter-final at the Rotterdam World tournament with his playing partner Mario Ancic when a ball hit him in the eye.

The 2002 Australian Open winner had to have surgery at the Dijkzigt hospital in Rotterdam to repair a detached retina.

Tournament doctor Babette Pluim said Johansson would be out of action for four months and cannot fly for three weeks.

The fourth seeded Swede had already lost in the first round of the men's singles to Briton Tim Henman on Wednesday.
Just when you thought it couldn't get worse for ToJo

Re: Thomas Johansson out for four months with eye injury

Bad luck for Tojo, always frustrating when a player gets an injury that is 'freak'. Hhmm...not sure if anybody follows football, but exactly the same thing happened to a Liverpool F.C player last week...except he got a boot in the face. Suppose it just shows how hard the tennis balls are hit.

Re: Thomas Johansson out for four months with eye injury

Ouch, poor guy. The only bright side is that of those four months, two of them will be the claycourt season where he wouldn't have done well anyway. But still, this is a real momentum-stopper after a great 2005, I just hope the long break doesn't end up finishing his career because of the time he'll lose.

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.
