Re: Tommy skips Halle and most likely Wimbledon

There's a new entry on Tommy's website. And this article sounds positive.

The pain is gone at the moment but the doctors adviced him to withdraw from Halle. Tommy practises already, works on fitness and staying power too and he's confident to play Wimbledon.


Here's the whole article in german:

"Auch wenn ich insgesamt "Entwarnung" vermelden kann, musste ich meine Teilnahme an den Gerry Weber Open leider absagen. Meine Ärzte haben mir empfohlen, der rechten Schulter noch ein wenig Pause zu geben. Es sieht gut aus mit einem Start im All England Club in Wimbledon, aber die nächste Woche will ich nochmal dazu nutzen, meine Schulter behutsam aufzubauen. Jetzt überhastet auf die Tour zurückzukehren, wäre einfach ein großer Fehler.

Nachdem ich, während der Vorbereitungszeit auf die French Open, plötzlich starke Schmerzen in meiner Schulter verspürte, habe ich mich erneut untersuchen lassen, um kein Risiko einzugehen. Es ist alles in Ordnung, die Schultermuskulatur benötigt jetzt noch ein wenig Pause. Ich habe mit leichtem Training auf dem Platz schon wieder begonnen. Ansonsten bin ich natürlich fleißig, arbeite viel an meiner Fitness und Ausdauer."

Confident to play Wimbledon? But didn't he already withdraw?

Re: Tommy skips Halle and most likely Wimbledon

There's no official statement about a withdrawal from Wimbledon. Tommy's father told a german newspaper that he's merely unsure.

A little bit confusion.

Re: Tommy skips Halle and most likely Wimbledon

this sounds not too good though... he'll go to Munich to see his German doctors and physio Klaus Eder who also took care of Nicolas Kiefer

http://www.sport1.de/de/sport/artikel_1337238.html

Münchenr Ärzte sollen Haas fit machen
München - Der Schmerz in der Schulter ist immer da. Obwohl es eigentlich ja gar kein Schmerz ist. Oder doch?

Tommy Haas musste seit dem 8. Mai wegen der Schulterverletzung pausieren
Vorschau Tommy Haas musste seit dem 8. Mai wegen der Schulterverletzung pausieren
"Ich weiß es selber nicht so genau", sagt Tommy Haas: "Es ist ein permanentes Schwächegefühl und irgendwie auch so ein kleiner Schmerz." Wenn er sich im Auto anschnallen will und den Gurt runterzieht zum Beispiel: "Eben diese Rückhandbewegung, dabei habe ich immer das Gefühl, überhaupt keine Kraft im rechten Arm zu haben."
Das ist für einen Tennisspieler eher hinderlich, und deshalb hat Tommy Haas auch "absolut keine Ahnung", wann er auf die Tour zurückkehrt.
Das kann noch zwei Wochen dauern, oder vier. Oder vielleicht auch länger. In Halle/Westfalen hat er abgesagt, in Wimbledon offiziell noch nicht.
Seit 8. Mai nicht mehr Tennis gespielt
Aber er weiß natürlich, dass ein Grand-Slam-Turnier für jemanden, der einen Monat lang keinen Ball mehr geschlagen hat, ein unmögliches Unterfangen ist.
Seit Tommy Haas am 8. Mai in Rom im Spiel gegen den Tschechen Radek Stepanek aufgab, hat er kein Tennis mehr gespielt. Erst jetzt, zum Wochenenende, will er "mal probeweise ein paar Bälle schlagen".
Zweimal war er in der Zeit beim Arzt seines Vertrauens in New York, und der konnte grundsätzlich erstmal Entwarnung geben. "Ich habe zweimal eine Kernspin-Tomografie machen lassen", sagt Haas: "In der Schulter ist definitiv nichts gerissen."
Haas fliegt nach München

Aber weil in den vergangenen fünf Wochen auch definitiv nichts besser geworden ist, sollen nun die Spezialisten in der Heimat ran. Am kommenden Mittwoch fliegt Haas nach München, dort sollen sich Physiotherapeut Klaus Eder sowie die beiden Ärzte Dr. Ludwig Rembeck und Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt der Sache annehmen.
"Vielleicht liegt die Ursache ja auch ganz woanders", sagt er: "Vielleicht ist es eine lädierte Rippe oder irgendein Problem mit der Halswirbelsäule."
Bis jetzt nimmt Haas die Zwangspause noch einigermaßen locker hin, auch wenn ihn vor allem der Verzicht auf Wimbledon schmerzt. Dort hat er in bisher acht Versuchen noch nie das Achtelfinale erreicht, weshalb er findet, "dass ich da noch eine Rechnung offen habe".
US Open und Davis Cup die großen Ziele
Dass er die Sandplatz-Saison fast komplett sausen lassen musste, findet der 29-Jährige dagegen nicht weiter tragisch: "Es ist ja bekannt, dass ich da sowieso nicht so ein großer Fan von bin."
Seine beiden großen Ziele in diesem Jahr sind ohnehin schon lange klar definiert: Bei den US Open will Tommy Haas, der auf den US-Hartplätzen groß geworden ist, seinem Traum von einem Grand-Slam-Sieg so nah wie möglich kommen und anschließend mit der deutschen Davis-Cup-Mannschaft durch einen Sieg in Russland das Finale erreichen.
Und dem ordnet Deutschlands Nummer eins zurzeit eben alles unter. Konditionell hat er sich fit gehalten, mental findet er seine aktuelle Situation manchmal "ein bisschen schwierig".
"Ich darf nichts überstürzen"
Aber egal, ab nach Deutschland, wo die Familie ihn unterstützen kann und wo die geballte medizinische Kompetenz ihn so schnell wie möglich wieder auf den Platz kriegen soll.
"Ich hoffe, dass ich bald mit dem Tennistraining anfangen kann", sagt er: "Wenn es sich wenigstens wieder ein bisschen besser anfühlt, kann ich mit dem vorsichtigen Aufbau anfangen. Ich darf nichts überstürzen, immerhin ist die Schulter schon zweimal operiert worden."

Could someone please give a brief translation of the sport1 article? I'm sorry I can't read German But right now I think things are confused mainly due to the fact that no one is answering the question--exactly what is wrong with Tommy's shoulder? Surely the doctors and Tommy must know by now

Re: Tommy skips Halle and most likely Wimbledon

use Babelfish http://babelfish.altavista.com/ for translation. It is not good but still better than German I think.

The article said that Tommy's shoulder is still not better. He even feels pain when he reaches for the safetybelt in his car. He went to New York to see his doctor but the shoulder seems to be ok. On wednesday he will go to Munich so see other doctors and the physio. They think it could be something wrong with his rip or the spine.
He didn`t play any tennis since 8th May but he will start slow practice this weekend and see how the shoulder reacts. He doesn`t want to hurry things because he already had 2 surgeries on this shoulder. He wants to give it some more time to heal.

Re: Tommy skips Halle and most likely Wimbledon

Munich doctors to condition Haas

Munich - The pain in the shoulder is still there. Altough it is actually no pain, is it?

Since May 8, Tommy Haas had to pause due to a shoulder injury.
"I´m not quite sure, too", says Tommy Haas. "It is a permanent feeling of weakness and somehow a little pain."
If he wants to strap up in his car and pulls down the seat belt for example: "It is the backhand movement. I always feel like I have no power in my right arm."
This is rather obstructive for a tennis player, and that is why Tommy "doesn´t know at all" when he will return to the tour.
It can take 2 weeks, or four. Or maybe longer.
He skipped Halle/Westfalen, Wimbledon officially not yet.
He knows for sure that playing a Grand Slam is impossible for someone who didn´t hit any balls for a month.
Since he retired against Stephanek, he hasn´t played any tennis. But this week end, he wants to hit some balls by way of trial.
He went two times to his confidential doctor in New York who gave a basically all-clear.
„I had two nuclear spin tomographies“, says Haas. „There is definitely nothing torn in my shoulder.“"

Haas heads for Munich
But because there has definitely nothing got better in the pas five weeks, it is he turn of the specialists of his home. The next Wednesday he flies to Munich, where physiotherapist Klaus Eder and the doctors Dr. Ludwig Rembeck und Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt are going to look after it.
„Maybe we attribute an effect to a wrong cause“, he says. “Maybe there is a damaged costa or a problem with his cervical spine“
Up to now, Haas copes quite good with his enforced time-out, even if especially the waiver of Wimbledon hurts. He has never reached the last sixteen round there, that´s why he thinks that he “has a score to settle with it“.

US Open and Davis Cup are the big goals
Haas doesn´t think that it is tragical that he had to skip the clay season almost completely: “It is well known that I´m not such a big fan of it”.
His two big goals of this year are well defined for a long time anyway:
Haas, wo has grown up on US-Hardcourts, wants to get as close as possible to his dream of triumphing at the US Open and wants afterwards to reach the final beating Russia
with the german Davis Cup Team.
Germany´s No. 1 subordinates everything at the moment to make his dreams come true. He stayed fit conditionally. His mentally situation is sometimes „a bit difficult“

„I may not rush things“
But no matter what, he heads for home where his family supports him and where the medical competence conditions him.
“I hope to begin practicing soon”, he says. “If it feels a bit better again, I can start building up carefully. I may not rush things, after all the shoulder has been operated two times yet.”

Sorry for my lacking translation talent. I hope you don´t mind the tense and vocabulary mistakes

Re: Tommy skips Halle and most likely Wimbledon

Thank you so much tennislady And it sounds like Tommy and his doctors really don't actually know exactly what is wrong with him In some ways I'm encouraged that the medical tests he has had so far were good, but then he still has a problem with his shoulder May be it is something in his cervical spine a pinched nerve or something that is the real cause of the shoulder not feeling right Whatever it is, I just want him to get well soon

Re: Tommy skips Halle and most likely Wimbledon

Eurosport, Tommy's website and other sources told us different things. It's a little bit strange: pain and no pain, practise and no practise, Wimbledon and no Wimbledon.
