Question for Norman fans

10-27-2002, 01:31 AM
I just read this on ESPN:



PARIS -- Former French Open finalist Magnus Norman has pulled out of the Paris Masters Series tournament with a hip injury, organizers have said.

Norman was ranked No. 2 in the world in June 2000 but his career has since been plagued by injuries and operations. He has slipped to 79th in the ATP standings.

The Paris event, won last year by Frenchman Sebastien Grosjean, starts on Monday

Is this hip injury the same as before? Does anyone have any more info on Norman?

I really hate this happened. He was just starting to look like he was getting back on track. Hope this won't be as serious as before.

What?! Another hip injury?! :sad: Yes, it was same before...

Oh no, awful news!
Just when he was doing well!
I hope it is not the same injury, but it might be.
Magnus, come back :fiery:

Magnus started winning numeous matches consecutively, getting to the finals of a tournament, and now again a road block.

I wouldn't mind giving him a hip massage though.

Norman to Undergo Knee Surgery in November
Sun Oct 27, 7:41 AM ET

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Swede Magnus Norman, who has pulled out of this week's Paris Masters to rest his sore hip, will undergo knee surgery in early November, the Swedish news agency TT reported Sunday.

"The decision was taken some weeks ago," coach Fidde Rosengren was quoted as saying. "It's nothing very complicated, a piece of the meniscus has to be removed.

"We hope to be back at the end of November."

Norman is currently ranked 79th in the ATP standings after a comeback in February from close to a year's absence with a hip injury. He lost to Moroccan Hicham Arazi, 6-2, 6-2, in the first round of the Stockholm Open this week.


I just hope that what his coach is saying could be truth, that it isn't anythign complicated.
I want Magnus back for next season.
