Hrbaty def Monfils 3-6, 2-2 ret.

I didn't see exactly what happened as I'm getting ready for work while watching the Tennis Channel coverage, but Monfils apparently hurt his ankle and was taken off court in a wheelchair.

Sucks too because Monfils was playing really well and winning.

Monfils was leaping across the court in celebration.

As he came down he landed on the side of his foot, his ankle twisting in a very painful-looking way.

Time for Pimms...

Oh man it wasn't even during a point? That somehow makes it worse.

Yep, that was awful... He was just returning from injury and now comes that... Keep it up Gael, better times will come !

"When I talk to myself on court, I say, ‘I love you, you're a good guy, but don't miss next time, OK?’” Marat Safin, 2004.
MARAT SAFIN US Open 2006: No, when you're 26, it's difficult to change. You can't teach the old dog to sit, huh? "

When you win, when you lose, when you smile or when you're mad : Marat you're still the best to watch.

"Just give yourself the opportunity, give yourself the chance. You have to
be happy with what you have achieved and don't take any notice if somebody
tells you that you should have achieved much more. You have achieved what
you have achieved. Nobody can take that away and you have a clear
conscience." Marat

Re: Hrbaty def Monfils 3-6, 2-2 ret.

The first set was a freak show - Monfils was hitting the crap out of the ball both on serve and return and everything seemed to land inside the court

Bad luck.

I hope he recovers quickly but I'd almost hope he waits until next year to come back...he shouldn't rush it.

It's always very painful (physically and mentally) to have to retire while leading a match, especially in this case when Monfils was clearly dominating Hrbaty on court.

He was leaping off a point and hurt himself? Can someone confirm this?
