Unhappy Baghdatis injured; pulls out of Thailand Open

Marcos

September 26th, 2006 - Marcos Baghdatis pulls out of Thailand Open with shoulder injury

World #9 and second seed Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus has withdrawn from the tournament at the last minute due to an injury on his right shoulder.

The Cypriot, who clinched his first ATP title in Beijing two weeks ago, said he was injured during practice on Friday.

“I’m a bit disappointed. I’d like to play here. I hoped it would get better this morning but it didn’t,” Baghdatis said.

“My trainer said it would take three weeks at most to recover. I’m not sure if it’s a muscle problem. I’m going home tomorrow so that I can treat this well.”

Baghdatis has revealed he was more disappointed to miss the chance to collect points in the INDESIT ATP Race. The top eight finishers will make it to the prestigious Tennis Master Cup in Shanghai in November.

Tournament Director Allon Khakshouri told Baghdatis that it had been an honor to welcome such a world class player like Baghdatis. Khakshouri also added that Baghdatis has tried his best not to announce this last-minute withdrawal in order to play his first Thailand Open.

The Cypriot star said he was hoping to come back next year.

Satoshi Iwabuchi of Japan, ranked 368th in the world, is a lucky loser to replace Baghdatis and takes on Julien Benneteau in the first round starting tomorrow.

This is good news for Ancic, Robredo, and Blake. But out for 3 weeks, this is just terrible. He really needed those race points, before Madrid and Paris.

This is a shame. Hope he gets well soon, Marcos is a class guy and one of my favorites.

I feel bad because he's injured, but as I'm cheering for Ancic to play in the MC, that's good news.

Re: Baghdatis injured; pulls out of Thailand Open

Surely he is already going to Shanghai as a GS finalist?

Erm, I am a total dunce here of course but I think only one GS WINNER gets to the TMC if he's outside the top 8. The highest ranked GS winner from those outside the top 8.

Re: Baghdatis injured; pulls out of Thailand Open

So is Marcos destined to be one of those players plagued by injury their whole career?

Re: Baghdatis injured; pulls out of Thailand Open

That's sucks! Does Marcos still have a chance to qualify for TMC, even without playing for the next 3 weeks?

Re: Baghdatis injured; pulls out of Thailand Open

Get better soon! But on a more selfish note, this may be James' chance to qualify. Sorry it had to be that way. I'm sure he would have prefered to have legitimately qualified.
