Marat's ankle

Marat has just taken a nasty fall during his SF. Apparently twisted his ankle. He was limping to his chair and is now taking a medical timeout- it is 1-0 first set to Safin.

Please please please another injury is the last thing we need here! :banghead: :bigcry:

I may have prematurely panicked- he is continuing to play. I just hope this won't affect his movement too severly.

Hopefully its nothing serious. Though he started very well, I doubt he will play as well, because of it.

It doesn't look TOO bad for now- he is moving ok, and if he can keep the points short he can still finish off the short balls. His only problem is when he is forced to cover great distances in a short amount of time he is a little bit slow off the mark.

he should retire if he feels even a lil bit of pain IMO. ankle is one thing you don't want to mess around.

Marat just broke to go 2-1 up :banana:

But I can definitely see a change in Canas' game plan- he is serving out wide on both sides of the court trying to go a lot behind Safin, make him cover as much ground as possible. For the moment Marat is up to the task.

Sorry Ilhame, I was freaked myself when it happened- but he seems to be ok now. Maybe a little bit slower and more cautious but still playing very well!

He is now 4-1 up- he is pounding serves in, hitting great off the ground, and he is even moving in to volley now and then.

Thanks Ron. I just get scared when I hear he falls or might be injured.

He is still belting 'em away- 5-2 now to Safin.

Rone, you scared the shit out of me in that first post.. LOL i saw it when i had just logged in... ;)

Canas still up a break, 3-2 in set #2.

He has definitely picked up his game, started to hit with more angles and spins, move Safin around. He seems to be trying to "Santorize" Safin. The quality of the match has gone up a couple of extra notches in the last 10 minutes or so.

RonE

4-3 to Canas still with the break.

In his last service game Marat had to save BP. He chucked his racquet in anger but he steadied himself and re-composed to take the game. This is just the sort of game that might inspire him to break back.

But Canas has definitely picked up his game- he is a real terrier-like fighter, gets everything back, fires winners from impossible positions when he is way out of court. Let's see if Marat can retaliate.

I was right! Marat breaks back to love!!!!!!!! :banana: :banana: :banana:

5-4 now to Marat- another little scare, he was 40-15 on his serve and then made 2 careless errors to put the game at deuce. He threw his racquet again but he recomposed himself again superbly.

One big push here and he might just wrap this match up.

I hope that the ankle pain doesn't get worse over-night. Like it happens sometimes. Leave it and you wouldn't be able to move the next day.
Best wishes Marat!

I don't think it's anything too serious. The same happened to Cañas yesterday in his match against Feliciano and it wasn't anything to be worried about. Look at him, he played perfectly well (besides his game i mean, without any kind of pain lol)
It has happened a lot here this week but thankfully no one got any serious injury.
I'm sure some massages there will be enough for him to be 100% for the final :D

I hate that when something like that happens, they pass that image again and again. And again and again. Close-up. In slomo. And again the whole image. Player being treated. Again fall from another angle. And again the original. And again.

LOL. And here's some more pics to relive that moment ;)

It was nice of Canas to give Hippo a hand when he was down. :)

If Marat has weak ankles, why doesn't he wear ankle braces? He could twist his ankle again tomorrow. :eek: I have weak ankles too so seeing someone twist theirs kinda freaks me out. :scared:

Good on Guillermo to help him out although i notice that he was also injured with his thigh!

Yeah turning on ankles is horrible and i wear a support on my left one from time to time as i have very badly sprained it in the past - my foot went black and blue!
