Source for the news about the knee please?

Re: 2012 Schedule : The Roman Empire Awaits

It was apparent during the match, he had someone look at it and the commentators mentioned it too.

Re: 2012 Schedule : The Roman Empire Awaits

Good clean match, served well and didn't get broken, Tsonga next.
The knee was strapped, but he was moving well, hope its just a precaution.

Re: 2012 Schedule : The Roman Empire Awaits

Delpo is playing Tsonga in the evening which means I get to watch it! One match away from playing Nole which is a dream for me.

Re: 2012 Schedule : The Roman Empire Awaits

I saw his 1st match live on tv,but today I had to watch a stream,because the Fed borefest was on at the same time.

If his next match is on at the same time as one of the big3, it's
back to crappy streams in Italian.

Re: 2012 Schedule : The Roman Empire Awaits

Tipsy lost
Now I think Delpo needs to beat Tsonga to get the 8th seed. I think.

If it's true, that's great!! Tsonga is not that good on clay and he's Delpo's pigeon.

Yeah either way he'll get it eventually. Tipsy will always fall before him.

Thanks for that. I was not able to watch the match until the replay here last night so figured it out by watching. It looked like it bothered him more in the first 2 sets but by the 3rd maybe he loosened up Don't know. Some nice passing shots last evening and woohoo a few volleys
Glad to see he made it through today

Re: 2012 Schedule : The Roman Empire Awaits

Bad news, he lost, he wasn't moving well and his serve was off, he looked tired and frustrated and he even got mad at his knee and pulled the tape off.Tsonga played very well.

Oh well look on the bright side,he gain ranking points and he has extra time to rest the knee before RG.
I'm always an optimist.

Re: 2012 Schedule : The Roman Empire Awaits

He made lots of uncharacteristic errors and you're right, he wasn't moving well. I am pretty sure the knee was stopping him and making him very tired. Time to rest my dear and get ready for the big major. Vamos
