Good news

OFFICIAL GOOD NEWS!!

This came in the early hours of the morning from Marat's management:

Good News - No operation is necessary. Instead Marat will have a cast on his wrist for two weeks. If all goes well, he could be back in less than 6 weeks.

Marat Safin - always the one and only

what is a cast??

"And how to say this one? The Russian one, doesn't have a bad one also. What is his name, the young one, the tall one? This guy, you know (laughter)? The one not playing too bad. He beat once Sampras in the finals of US Open. Do you know him (laughter)? Safin, maybe Safin? I mean, I don't know, I consider myself I don't have a bad backhand. Not super, but I'm working on it."

VAMOS

Re: Good news

A cast is the thing you were around the wrist to support it and to calm the wrist...

if i`m not wrong he also isn`t allowed to really move his wrist for the next time. that should be complicated for Marat LOL.

Re: Good news

What I don't know if this is good news. Doesn't he have a torn ligament? This is what Serena has, except behind her knee. She will require surgery. Why doesn't he???

Well, I hope he is doing what is best. I don't want Marat's name to become synonymous with "retired from match".

Re: Good news

Well, the doctors told him that he don`t need a surgey and that threatment and rest is enough to heal, it just takes the time, so why should he not listen to them? They are profis, they know what is to do. The thing is that he did return too early, the wrist wasn`t fully healed yet. He wanted to play again too early. So now there is resting again for some weeks.

The news is that he has to wear a plaster cast, like for broken bones.

didn't he asked advice before he started to play again??
or did he just not listen to them
