Davydenko out of Australian Open


World number five Nikolay Davydenko will miss this month's Australian Open because of a heel injury.

The Russian pulled out of his match against Lukas Dlouhy at the warm-up event in Chennai, India, on Wednesday after the problem flared up.

"It's obviously serious since I'll even miss the Australian Open," he said.

Davydenko reached the Masters Cup final in November, beating Andy Murray in the semis, and would have been among the favourites in Melbourne.

"I'm having acute pain in my left heel that flared up last week," the Russian added.

"I've had painkillers even today, and the doctors here in Chennai have tried some therapy for a few days, but I now need to fix this before playing any more tournaments.

"I need to check my heel and that's why I'm going home, to see what's happening and what's wrong.

"The problem started last year, but I thought I could still continue playing. It was (painful) even when I played the Shanghai Masters in November."

Nikolay very rarely has to pull out before the start of a GS, his heel must really be bothering him. Its no wonder his fans are hurting for him. Crazy Girl:hug::hug:

OH NO! I'm shocked. Had no idea he had a problem with his heel.

This is obviously disappointing for many reasons. In terms of rankings, he only made the R16 last year and had points to gain. And I'm also waiting for him to win that first Grand Slam, and I imagine it would come on hard courts either in Melbourne or New York. This is a sad missed opportunity considering how well he played in Shanghai last fall and how open this AO field could be in 2009 with Fed, Nadal, and Djok all very beatable... still no GS QFs reached for Nikolay since USO '07, and that's so surprising.

Get better Nikolay, and I hope we can see you again soon.

Leo
01-07-2009, 05:13 PM
No big loss. Davydenko doesn't perform well at slams anyway, he'll peak at Poertschach.

:rolleyes: Which is why he usually plays his best in New York at the US Open, right? :rolleyes: In 2007 before meeting Fed in the semis, Davydenko was breaking serve about 2/3 of the time in this tournament. That is an unheard of statistic. New York is not Poertscach.

I don't know that the tournament will miss the Russian. Davydenko is one of the most underrated players of the Open Era, but his best Slam performances seem to be behind him on 2008's evidence. That loss to Ljubicic at the French, from two sets up, was the pits.

Sucks that Davydenko is out of the first Slam of the year. It's sad whenever a Seed has to withdraw. The heel must be really bothering him though. I didn't think it was anything serious.

All the best to him though.
