I am torn between David and Marcos.
Any clash between these two payers is a win-win situation for me.

Strongly hope these two guys will meet at Australian Open. It would be one of those rare (and peculiar, I might say) cases where I will root (with all my heart, screaming ) for both players.

Well, I guess everyone knows: David withdrew from Kooyong today (1/9) with spasms. While I don't believe that a three-day rest period will take of the problem, it's what was recommended-and we can only hope that it won't interfere with AO.

Yes, suddenly his AO chances don't look as good.

Let's hope he will be fully fit for the Australian Open and that his lack of match practice won't hurt him.

Let's hope...although we have to get past the immediate crisis first before we think about what's next.

Injured Nalbandian in fitness fight for Australian Open

By Simon Cambers

MELBOURNE, Jan 9 (Reuters) - A frustrated David Nalbandian is fighting to be fit for next week's Australian Open after pulling out of the warm-up event at Kooyong because of a back injury.

The Argentine, who ended last year by winning back-to-back Masters Series titles in Madrid and Paris, suffered back spasms during a practice session at Melbourne Park on Wednesday.

Nalbandian will have an MRI scan on the injury later in the day but has been told to rest for at least three days, leaving him just a couple of days to prepare for the first grand-slam event of the year.

"I think I am going to be OK, but you never know," Nalbandian told reporters.

"I had what they say is a distension in the back. I have four, five days to go. I will try to hit on Saturday for 30-40 minutes and see how it is."

Nalbandian was considered one of the favourites for the title at Melbourne Park, having ended the season on a high with his back-to-back Masters Series wins.

The world number nine was practising with former number one Marat Safin of Russia when he first felt pain.

"I started to feel some pain after about 30 minutes. I tried to keep going all the way with Marat -- we were playing points -- but I couldn't continue."

Nalbandian said he had arrived in Melbourne feeling fully fit and ready to bid for his first grand-slam title.

"I felt perfect," he said.

"I was just resting for two weeks, so for a month and a half, I have been practising. I feel great, fit and everything, so it was just bad luck today."

Nalbandian's place in the eight-man Kooyong field will be taken by Brydan Klein, who won the boys' title at the Australian Open last year.

Oh that sounds depressing!

Thank goodness I didn't go to Kooyong today. It would have been a waste.

I guess we can wait for the results of the MRI...although I don't hold out much hope of a "recovery" in three days.

NOOOOOOO!

Is he ever going to get a break? This could be fine in a day or two but it also could take a while to subside - hopefully it is not more serious than spasms.

Nalbandian injures back in practice, withdraws from Kooyong

By JOHN PYE, AP Sports Writer
January 8, 2008

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- David Nalbandian injured his back practicing with Marat Safin at Melbourne Park on Wednesday and withdrew from the upcoming Kooyong tournament.

Nalbandian, a 26-year-old Argentine whose past two title wins came over No. 1 Roger Federer and No. 2 Rafael Nadal at the Masters Series events in Madrid and Paris in October, said he is doubtful to compete in next week's Australian Open.




Nalbandian said he would have medical scans later in the day to assess the injury.

"For sure I can't play. I can't even hit slowly with the ball," he said. "This best thing is to rest and get treatment. In two or three days, start hitting slowly again and see how it goes."

He said the pain came gradually in the middle of his back over an hour, but became so intense he could not do anything.

"I felt fit, great and ready to go. It was just bad luck today, warming up," he said. "It's bad luck."

Nalbandian said he would try hitting again on Saturday or Sunday before making a decision on whether to play in the Australian Open, the season's first Grand Slam which starts on Monday.

Nalbandian, who reached the 2002 Wimbledon final but has never been beyond the semifinals at another major, will be replaced in the eight-man invitational Kooyong field by Australian Bryden Klein.

"It would have been my first matches of the year, here, so it would have been good to get the feeling of the ball, the surface and everything," he said. "It's very disappointing but all I can do is wait and try and be ready for the Open with a good feeling by Monday."

He was the third high-profile player to withdraw from the Kooyong tournament, after Federer and Tommy Haas.

Federer, who usually uses this event to fine-tune for the Australian Open, pulled out Monday because of a stomach virus.

Hope his 1st round match at OA is scheduled on Wednesday and his 1-2 opening matches are not against tricky opponents.



Hey . I'll introduce myself on the Asado thread in 2-3 days. I'm bit busy with other stuff. The only thing I can "reveal" about me now, is the answer I gave to Martine when she asked me, on Gaudio's forum, which players I like.
BTW, my name is Getta (same as my username )
