He withdrew! Dieter Kindlmann took his place in the draw. I am glad he didn't take the risk. It's better to have Australian Open without Kiwi than to have 2009 without Kiwi

yes, should be at least 4 weeks. We don't know what the doctors told him. As far as I know you can only see how serious this injury really is after the swelling is gone which usually takes 2 days. Maybe the doctors said it looks like the ligaments are torn but it's possible that you are lucky and after 2 days we can see that they are not completely torn Hrbaty said he had a similar injury and was able to run after only one week. But Kiwi had a surgery for the same injury on that same ankle a few years ago already. I think this will make it more difficult this time.

2 torn ligaments and a cut (not torn) string. He still has a very little hope to be able to compete in the Australian Open but he also fears that he might need a surgery. He will go to Melbourne on saturday to meet with his physio Gabriel there.
For these kind of injuries the most importand first aid is to put ice on it. The earlier you put ice on it the faster it will heal later. As far as the news are telling Hrbaty was the first to help him. He made sure that Kiwi immediately gets ice on his ankle. Maybe his immediate help gave Kiwi a good chance for a quick comeback
This is just so sad. What did he do to deserve so much bad luck??

Re: Kiwi Down Under

All Hopman Cups are ending with retirements from German players it seems. I thought he already has strong tapes on his ankles for every match, so I thought we won't see those injuries again. Now the DC seems to be in danger again.
