Seems that he had some back problems during the first set. Just hope it's nothing to fear...

Yeah, we had some hard problems with the diffusion of Jo's match in autralia. That's strange.

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

It will be a rematch against Nieminen, a tough match certainly.

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

I'm impressed at how easily Jo disposed of Bolelli. Well done! Nieminen shouldn't be that tough second time around, he will have a better idea of his opponent's strengths and weaknesses. Now that Jo has got some matches under his belt, he will get better and cut down on unforced errors. Just hope that the back problem is not serious and he will be fit at AO.

He seems confident about his form, and certainly not afraid of the top 4. I like his attitude.

He is playing tomorrow against Nieminen for the last match of the night session, after Ancic-Djokovic.

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

Can I come with you ? TT
According to l'Equipe (http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/breves2...ga-blesse.html

«Je me suis décidé dans l'après-midi parce que j'avais vraiment trop mal. Je ne pouvais pas jouer. Mon physio a tout tenté hier, tout comme celui de l'ATP ainsi que le médecin mais ils m'ont dit que ce serait trop dur de jouer dans ces conditions. J'espère juste que je pourrais disputer l'Open d'Australie mais je ne le sais pas encore», a expliqué le Tricolore, finaliste à Melbourne la saison passée.


"I've decided this afternoon to withdraw because it was hurting too much. I couldn't play. My physio tried everything yesterday, as the ATP's and the doctor did but they all said it was too dangerous to play under these conditions. I can only hope that I will be able to compete in the Australian Open but I can't be sure of anything right now."

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

It's unbelievable how that guy can't play few tournaments in a row. So talented but so fragile.

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

He was saying yesterday it's nothing worrying ("rien de méchant", he says in L'Equipe today), so maybe the media are a bit exaggerating too. They love to make a big deal out of Jo's physical problems.
But I know the last quotes are worrying. On the other hand, he can't withdraw from the event and stress it's just precautionary.

It makes sense and I really hope it's the reason of those alarming quotes ! There is a few pics of his press conf on getty images, but I don't know how you can see them without the watermarks. Still on one of them he looks so sad and worried. And the AO begins in 3 days

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009



The withdrawal could be a precautionary measure, so I suppose we should not panic yet. On the other hand, if the back injury is more serious, then he and his team will have to consider the risks of aggravating it, and withdraw from AO if necessary. Tough decision, especially as we all know just how much he has been looking forward to this grand slam.

Please stay healthy Jo and and live to play another day.
