Eastbourne: Istomin def. Almagro [1] 6-4 1-0 ret. (carried off on stretcher)

Looks pretty serious.

Anyone saw what happened?

What happened??

Almagro was standing then when he went to move one leg hit the ground before the other, jarring it, then doing the splits as he was away to return a shot, he immediaetly grabbed his left groin area and didn't get up for at least 15 minutes, had to be helped off court and couldn't walk, left on a stretcher.

Didn't look as serious when it first happened, but the fact that he couldn't get up and was down there for 15 minutes suggests I highly doubt you'll see him at Wimbledon

Also from the look on Almagro's face you could tell he was in sheer agony, maybe a tear of some degree

You never know with mugro, could just a grass burn.

That sounds serious, hope he's okay.

Looked to me like he was moving for a ball, slipped and did sort of a split, immediately grabbing his groin/upper thigh. It didn't look that bad when it happened but you could tell he was really hurting and the fact that he just lay there and couldn't get up to walk on it seems pretty serious or he is a huge drama queen which didn't appear to be the case.

I'd be surprised if he can play Wimbledon.

Too bad
He should pull out of Wimbledon since he's most likely going to heal by then

bad luck. Groin pulls are often more painful than they are damaging though

:sad: very sad news.Hopefully it's not something serious so he can be ok for Wimby but I doubt it.:( :sad:

I think his drama queen days have ended since last year's u.s. open. If he is writhing in pain like that, I wouldn't be surprised if he's out for a couple weeks.

I'm no fan of the guy, but this really sucks for Almagro, just less than one week before Wimbledon.
Wishing him a speedy recovery.

Shame, but if he had to miss a slam, Wimbledon's probably the best one to miss. As for Istomin, he impressed me against Nadal - would be good if he could win a few rounds at Wimbledon (assuming he's in the draw - not sure of his rank).

Nico has to stop trying to imitate Kim Clijsters doing splits - it's just not going to pan out for him. But seriously, this is lousy luck right before Big W. Rest up young man, nurse the strain (hopefully only that) and hope to see you at Wimbly.

Didn't see the match. What was it about Istomin's behavior that made him classy? (No sarcasm about or judgment on Istomin here, just an honest question)

He literally ran over the side of Almagro when the chair umpire (L.Graf) was still in the chair. He was the first one to get to Almagro and was asking him where is the pain and whether he was ok. He stayed with Almagro until asked by the referee to leave as match was over. He then collected Almagro's racquet, packed his bag and took it along with his own one.

by the way, Istomin was a better player in the match anyway. Almagro was doing nothing but complaining about every other call. ANNOYING.

Very classy really. Should qualify for Stefan Edberg Award. If it were me I'd vote for him.

That's just plain nice to hear in this very unforgiving sport. It's so rare I might have taped it. Yes, it says a lot about Istomin as a person. Thanks for the details Rosa.

well known fixer to whom? to the gamblers? yeah, right :lol: anyone who they bet on and he loses is labelled as being a fixer even though very often they are only "watching" the match on the SB :)
He is not known to be a fixer to me :shrug:

Can't have been that serious if this is true (from Twitter):

@MyTennisFilip Almagro 12 hours ago rolled out on a stretcher from cc Eastbourne. Now practicing as we speak. Quite an injury!
about 8 hours ago via web

I guess, then, since we are now in business accusing ppl without any shred of evidence.

I know I'm in the minority here, but I like Almagro. Maybe he hasn't got the best attitude, but lots of tennis players have bad attitudes. He's done very well lately, and is currently one of the best Spanish tennis players (obviously after Rafa and Nando). It's a shame this happened right before Wimbledon. Oh well, hope it's not too serious.
