Ancic is just unlucky, not injury prone.

Add baghdatis and tursunov to your list.

Not in the same measure than the others, but Calleri has that tendence too. And about Nalbo, not only injuries but he has stomach problems and he gets sick a lot too.

Edit: sorry I didn't see Calleri was already mentioned....

Right convenient injuries that have taken him our of tourneys before he's played. Because that's the grand scheme of Toni Nadal, that genius bastard

If this recent SI Mailbag entry is to be believed, then Taylor has indeed retired:


Blake Edwards of Olathe, Kan., writes: "Today I took my USPTA tennis exam, and the other person who happen to be taking it with me was none other than Taylor Dent. How surprised was I, living in Kansas City, Mo., and Taylor walks in the door. Injured, and done with the tour to my surprise, I had the luxury to spend the day with him.

"I must say, he is one of the classiest human beings I have come across. I talked with him about simple subjects, as did he to me. It was refreshing to meet a player that I held in high regard as a talented American sportsman. I wanted to somehow put this out there, that he will be missed, and I wish him well, as does my former college team on his marriage to Jenny Hopkins. What a classy cat."

Is he as injury prone as Nadal who had "trouble" every month 2006-7 every month except April and August (when he was at home)? Sore throats, flu etc. don't count as injuries in my book, though they can keep a player out, obviously. Injury prone seems to me regularly having trouble with shoulder, leg, wrist etc. Just how I interpreted this thread.

Pim Pim is definitely injury prone and if you want greater examples of injury prone players the thread that has Worst Luck tc on GM has greater examples.

Sore throats, dandruff, ingrown toenails are not injuries.
