Unhappy News on Lleyton's Injury and Surgery

Split toenails ground Lleyton
By Leo Schlink
March 23, 2005

LLEYTON Hewitt could be sidelined for up to six weeks with a toe injury.

The world No.2 yesterday withdrew from the rich Nasdaq-100 in Miami after severely injuring toes on his right foot in Indian Wells last week.

Plagued throughout his career with feet problems - a legacy of pounding hardcourt baselines around the world - Hewitt will undergo minor surgery.

It is understood some of his toenails have lifted and split because of the lack of give on hardcourts.

Andre Agassi was unable to take to the court against Hewitt last week because of a similar problem.

Hewitt returned to Australia yesterday to receive treatment from Davis Cup doctor David Brooks. He aggravated the problem during a tight three-set semi-final victory over Andy Roddick - now the most likely beneficiary of his absence from the tour.

While the Australian extended his rankings gap over the American by reaching the Indian Wells final, he has now left the door ajar for Roddick to reclaim the world No.2 position.

Hewitt leads by 450 rankings points in the entry system - 4305 to 3955 - but a long lay-off will allow Roddick to close quickly.

The Australian Open finalist is not expected back on tour until the Hamburg Masters series in May.

He will use the German claycourt event to prepare for the Arag World Team Cup in Dusseldorf ahead of the French Open. He will then lay siege to a second Wimbledon title.

Apart from helping Australia to a 5-0 Davis Cup thrashing of Austria in Sydney, Hewitt has been in superb form this season.

Assessing his current form to be the equal of that he produced during a two-year stint as world No. 1, he has built an 18-3 record this season.

The right-hander has contested just four events, reaching three finals.

Beaten in the Adelaide quarter-finals by Taylor Dent, Hewitt won a fourth Sydney crown before losing the Melbourne Park final to Marat Safin.

He was beaten at Indian Wells by nemesis Roger Federer.

Hewitt reached the third round in Miami last season.



C'mon, Lleyton!

Re: News on Lleyton's Injury and Surgery

Thanks for the article

I think someone in another thread was right and it's something like "out for three weeks with the toes and then out for another three because he wasn't going to play then anyway what with the Logies and all"

Nevertheless, get well soon Lleyton Sounds painful, and it's better he heals completely whatever the excuse for a break
