Bubka’s eight hours of surgery led to six months on crutches, a month of sometimes painful walking and an extended regimen of physical exertion.

“I lost 10 kilos,” he said, which is about 22 pounds. “So I have to build all my muscles again now. I do bikes, I do skis, I do little situps.”

But so far, little tennis. “I hit a couple of balls on one leg,” he said with a chuckle, “but now I feel like I can slowly playing some mini-tennis to start feeling the ball again. And in a month or two I should be able to start running.”

His upper body is strong again, he said, “but it’s the right leg is still, aah, still weak,” he said. “It’s painful from time to time, around the hip.”

“It’s the biggest challenge I’ve ever faced in my life,” he said. “So it’s very difficult, but I believe in it, I miss tennis; I’ve always loved to play tennis. Now I love it even more. When you take something away, that’s when you realize how much you miss it.”
I'm glad he feels this way. I wish him all the best.

How much time has to pass before it's no longer in bad taste for someone to photo-shop this Bubka attempting to pole-vault into a third story window? I don't know how to do it and were already on page seven here and nobady else has done it either, wtf?

He's lucky it's not instant death to be honest. Hope all goes well for him but how did this happen in the first place?

Update on the ATP website:

Quote:

Sergei Bubka is making positive strides on the road to recovery - already standing and almost walking - after sustaining multiple fractures in a three-story fall earlier this month.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian has been undergoing six hours of physical therapy daily, assisted by his Italian physiotherapist Gianluca, whom he calls “his magician”. Last week, Bubka also began making visits to the pool.

Despite the injuries, Bubka found much to be thankful for following the accident. “The circumstances leading to the fall were all so unlucky, but since the accident I feel I have been really lucky,” said Bubka. “I was lucky to be alive and not have damaged anything major. I was lucky my friends found me and took me to a great hospital where they took great care of me.”

Bubka admitted he didn’t remember the fall, which occurred when he leaned to look outside the window upon getting locked inside the bathroom of his friend’s flat, but remembers yelling for help. After waking up from nine hours of surgery at the Georges Pompidou hospital in Paris, he asked him mom four different times where he was and how he got there.

He expressed his gratitude for all those who came to visit him at the hospital, including Sergiy Stakhovsky, Malek Jaziri and Bob Brett, and for the outpouring of support received via text messages and e-mail.

Errr, that info alone is hardly enough for you to make such an assessment.
