Hrbaty career hangs in the balance

Beaten Paris Masters finalist Dominik Hrbaty has admitted an elbow injury could spell the end of his career.

The world number 21 was brushed aside in straight sets by Nikolay Davydenko on Sunday and immediately sought doctors' advice on the troublesome joint after the match.

The Slovakian has opted to rest until January's Australian Open instead of going under the knife, but he knows his career could soon be over.

He said: 'I am happy I do not need to have an operation. On the other hand, it could be the end of my career if there are any complications.

'I will probably make some changes in preparation for the 2007 Australian Open - I will not work so much on my tennis.'

Hmmm, I wonder what the problem is exactly. If Hrbaty has tennis elbow then the only thing to do for him would be to rest it and if he has surgery he could be out for about 6 months.

As for the end of his career, well it's too early to say and just hope he can manage the problem with the elbow. I remember when used to have a topspin forehand, but those were the days.
