Damn Jarkko... He was in a hot streak. Loses some points, hopefully his ranking will be high enough for the Main Draws of IW and Miami.

Apparently it was his right hip, he says it didn't feel bad during Sydney, but he felt pain already in the first game but tried to fight through. Says then that realized it was stupid and didn't want to risk it anymore. He says he's not sure if he'll play doubles, the injury has to be examined.

Though IMO if you pull out of singles, you shouldn't be fit for doubles.

hm probably

both Tursunov and Guccione last year lost early also... it'd be interesting to look up how Sydney finalists have gone in Melbourne in the past few years

Sure. He still has by far the toughest draw of the top 4.

Too bad for Jarkko.

Oh yeah.
Chardy and PHM are very tough players for a 2nd and 3rd round of GS.
