Re: News & articles
I'm going to start playing again in a few days!
Q : How are you doing jo?
A : I'm in rather good spirits. I'm flying to New-York for a couple of days. I've got some stuff to do there. It'll let me think of something else, I'm gonna see some people...
Q : With that left knee injury, you must have had a strange summer...
A : Obviously, most of all, I took some rest. Every morning I used a machine called Cybex for physiotherapy. I strenghtened my leg a bit, too. Otherwise, I took some time off, did some stuff I didn't have time to do before : had my car checked, mowed my lawn... I also did a lot of fishing.
Q : The US Open will start on monday without you, what about Davis Cup?
A : I'm still recovering but I think I'll start playing again in a few days. I'm just going to hit a few balls, not too hard, without running. For the semi-finals against Argentina in Lyon (17-19 september), it's true that it might be too soon. I'm going to wait for a few more days before taking my decision. That being said, I should still be at the Gerland stadium, since it's close to my home.
Q : Your patellar tendon suffers from a lesion, it looks like the same injury that has plagued Gilles Simon for the last months...
A : That's true, but Gilles kept playing before the lesion was fully healed, whereas I stopped playing immediately and completely. Though I must say I was "lucky" enough to have already had the same injury on my other knee - the right one - a few years ago
