Wasn't Stakhovsky serving for the first set? :confused: I wonder what happened.

Nope, You are wrong. Sergiy could not take a LL spot

Ukrainian Sergiy Stakhovsky didn’t finish the match against French Arnaud Clement.

In the final qualifying round at 6-5 ahead Sergiy was serving for the first set and injured his knee. Ukrainian had to leave the court in an invalid chair.

By phone Sergiy Stakhovsky has told to Yuriy Sapronov that nerve ending in his back had been jammed because of a big tiredness and overstrains due to a big number of matches during the last time.

Tomorrow Ukrainian player goes to Vienna for an observation. After recovery Sergiy will organize a master-class for young players in Kharkiv.

Holy crap, I hope the guy will be alright soon. These pics on a wheelchair looked horrible.

Was wondering if something like this might happen after his October. 22 matches in 26 days is never going to be a good idea.
