Wayne Arthurs!

Is anyone seeing this? It is the saddest thing. He's in his last AO & is in tears b/c of his knee... Injured from the start, such awful luck...

Re: Wayne Arthurs!

Feel so bad for the guy, can't move at all. Looks like he's just praying for rain right now...

Re: Wayne Arthurs!

It's awful. He can't move or serve at all. He's going to have to retire. I wanted Fish to win, but not like this.

I wonder how he hurt himself.

Re: Wayne Arthurs!

I know, Fish just has to get it in and he wins the point... not his fault though, he's doing what he has to do...

This is heartbreaking, no player deserves to end their career like this...

Re: Wayne Arthurs!

I feel awful for him. Can't he call a trainer? Did this just happen during the warm-up?

And... he retires. Good luck to Fish.

Re: Wayne Arthurs!

They're showing something of his leg like crumbling under him and talking to Mardy, who said he thought he was fine (played him in doubles yesterday in fact). He sounds incredulous and he thinks that Arthurs was probably okay while he came out.

Geez

Re: Wayne Arthurs!

Poor Wayne...gutting

I think he'll end up looking back though on his good first two rounds on his last AO, not this unfortunate ending.

Re: Wayne Arthurs!

That was really sad. And I have to admit that when Luke Jensen was saying that Wayne had tears in his eyes while trying to serve I got teary myself. That is really just horrible luck.

I like a lot of players.
