He worked so hard to come back. I wonder if he has it in him to climb back. Those that know how it works...will he receive a protected ranking if/when he returns?

Not sure, but I think you have to be out at least a year to use protective ranking. Brian doesn't have much to defend until May so hopefully he will be back by then. Even if his ranking drops off, he will probably receive wildcards into the American tournaments. So I think he should be okay.

I hear it's a torn meniscus, not an ACL, so not season ending. Surgery and out four months. Probably next slam be Wimbledon, or more realistically, the USO.

Same injury that Andrea Petkovic got at the beginning of this season.

Such a shame.This also means he's going to miss the entire clay season(don't think he's going to play on clay after Wimbledon),and most of his points.At least he didn't torn the ligament.Come back soon Brian.

Update on @BBakesTennis: Had surgery today to repair lateral meniscus and ALC looks fine. Knee brace about 6 weeks. Wish him back soon.

Thumbs up but a sad face. I just want to see him come back again and not let his body dictate when he's done.

6 months actually, which means if he's only back in Washington.

But he'd probably like to be back for Roland-Garros and Wimbledon

ATP - Brian Baker says knee is getting better

Quote:
27 year old American Brian Baker is continuing his rehab from knee surgery which he underwent last month after injuring his knee at the Australian Open.

The 27 year od Baker was one of the more memorable stories of the 2012 season as he rebounded from five surgeries in six years to break into the top 100. But bad luck struck again in Melbourne where he injured his knee.

Baker is blogging for USA Today while he does his rehab and in his latest blog, he spoke about how his rehab is going.

Rehab is taking a big chunk of time out of my days. I have been leaving my house around 8:30 every morning (weekdays) and not getting home until about noon. Since I am used to being very active, I've actually enjoyed getting out of the house for several hours each morning. I'm still limited with what I can do with my knee, but I have been amping up my upper-body and core workouts. It's amazing how quickly your conditioning vanishes when you stop working out. I thought I did a fairly moderate upper body workout on Monday which consisted of bench press, pull-ups, dips, biceps curls, push-ups, and various shoulder exercises. To my surprise, I'm still quite sore! I figured that I wouldn't have lost that much muscle endurance from taking four weeks off. I guess it proves that it takes a lot longer to get in shape than to lose it.

The toughest part of my rehab each day occurs at the beginning and end of each session. During these times, my therapist works on my knee extension. After surgery, the knee joint tends to get tight due to the excess fluid, and this makes getting full extension a struggle. Although it's extremely painful, I can already see the improvement, and my knee feels better.
