"Pablo Cuevas, este miércoles se presentó en la segunda ronda del Medibank International Sydney, para enfrentarse al argentino Leonardo Mayer, cayendo por 6-4, 6-2, en poco más de una hora.
Esta no fue la única decepción del uruguayo, sino tal vez la más importante al encontrarse totalmente disminuido en su condición física producto de la fractura que padece en su mano izquierda.
La respuesta de los médicos de confianza de Pablo es la necesidad de una intervención quirúrgica en un lapso de tiempo breve, que posibilite una rápida recuperación y vuelta a las canchas.
En la manana del jueves, el salteno concurrirá al consultorio del cirujano del comité olímpico australiano para determinar si en el trascurso de la presente semana es asistido.
De ser intervenido, casi con seguridad se bajará del primer Grand Slam de la temporada. "
has not yet pulled out of the Australian Open though doctors have said that he needs at least 10 days rest for his injured left hand to heal. Cuevas is down to play Feliciano Lopez in R1. Cuevas is right-handed and plays with a single-handed backhand.
was photographed arriving at Melbourne airport with his left arm in a sling. Cuevas will decide with his coach Daniel Orsanic at the last minute whether he can play against Feliciano Lopez
I hoped he was due for another clutch alla Wimbledon.
What a shame they didnt show it, seemed like an interesting match, and it sure would've helped my nerves not to follow it by livescore. Pablo is gonna fall around 5 spots in the ranking now I guess, nothing to worry about. Now, rest and focus for the first title
Saw this piece on his website today. I can make out on a bit on it, but not clearly what's going on and if he can play in Santiago next week. Can somebody please translate, especially the part just above the picture? http://www.pablocuevastennis.com/index1.php
Thank you for supporting me in so many different ways.
PABLO EN BUENOS AIRES
Pablo Cuevas, having just concluded his participation in the first Grand Slam of the season traveled to Argentina where he will regain his condition. As soon as the Uruguayan had arrived he went for a consultation with his personal physician, who took some x-rays and examined him and indicated that his injury is healing and the efforts he made to play did not cause any further damage.
Pablo will put his racket aside for a few days and just concentrate on physical exercise to keep himself in shape.
Also he's supposed to start rehabilitation work within the next 10 days with the goal of arriving at the Santiago ATP in good form.
At any rate his participation depends on his complete recovery.
