I surely thought after all his main junior competition have all gone and left and been SUCCESSFUL on the main/challenger tour, Young would have this one in the bag. I was mistaken.:o

Turned pro two years ago, 0-10 professional record only mostly wild cards and losing to unseeded juniors yet still so much hype.

Try thinking for once it will help you.

One of these incidents involved Peter Polansky who is ranked number one on Canada's junior tennis circuit. He jumped or fell from his third story hotel window at 12:30 AM. He survived the fall, but sustained serious injures.

When questioned, he told of a dream in which he saw a dark figure approaching his bed wielding a knife. His only thought was to escape. He backed to the window, and, finding it closed, kicked it out, tumbled through the opening and fell to the ground where he lay, frightened and helpless, in a pool of blood.

This sounds like a frightening nightmare or night terror that led to sleepwalking and the fall. Polansky was only 17 and had everything going his way. He had no known reason to attempt suicide. It was only a dream, put a potentially fatal one.

This is amazing! The doctors were not sure whether they could save his life 5 months ago.

Tennis: Polansky hurt while sleepwalking
Tennis Canada

Canadian Press

4/4/2006 6:02:19 PM

Canadian tennis player Peter Polansky is expected to make a full recovery after plunging three storeys from his Mexico City hotel room window in a bizarre sleepwalking accident.

The 17-year-old from Thornhill, Ont., an alternate on Canada's Davis Cup tennis team, severed an artery in his left leg and suffered several lacerations early Monday after kicking out the glass window and falling to the grassy courtyard below.

Polansky was very fortunate to have landed on a hedge, which helped soften the blow and prevented other serious injuries. Davis Cup captain Martin Laurendeau said Polansky crawled out of the window after an apparent nightmare in which he thought an intruder was in his room.

"He went through the window trying to escape and in the process he was cut up pretty bad," Laurendeau said in a phone interview with the Canadian Press.

"I guess he didn't realize he was also on the third floor."

With blood oozing from his leg, the dazed teenager was able to spot a light on in a nearby room and knock on the door for help. Laurendeau said the hotel guest got some towels and raised Polansky's legs to slow the bleeding before help arrived.

"He had a lot of luck because the cut missed his (femorial) artery by two millimetres," Laurendeau said. "He's very fortunate I tell you."

It took five hours of surgery to repair the severed popliteal artery near Polansky's left calf muscle. He did not suffer a single broken bone and there were no signs of any internal injuries.

Polansky could even be out of hospital by the weekend.

"He's out of danger right now, that's the No. 1 thing," Laurendeau said. "He will walk again, he will run again and play tennis again. That's what we hear from the doctors."

Tennis Canada president and CEO Michael Downey flew down to Mexico with Polansky's mother after hearing the news.

Laurendeau said the teenager even cracked a few jokes when his teammates stopped by the hospital for a visit.

"If anything it's an uplifting experience," Laurendeau said. "Seeing this kid go through this, not shedding a tear, staying calm throughout the whole thing, keeping his poise - which probably helped save his life as well - he never panicked any further.

"He went through this whole ordeal and he's in great spirits."

Canada opens its Davis Cup tennis tie against Mexico on Friday. The team will not fill Polansky's alternate position.

Daniel Nestor of Toronto, Frank Dancevic of Niagara Falls, Ont., and Robert Steckley of Thornhill, Ont., will play for Canada in the Americas Zone Group I second-round tie. A victory would secure a spot in a World Group playoff tie to be played in September.

Laurendeau, who has travelled with Polansky several times over the last few years, said Tennis Canada was not aware of any previous sleepwalking incidents.

Polansky, who's about five-foot-10 and 175 pounds, is a former under-18 national champion. He holds the No. 975 position in the latest ATP men's singles world rankings.
