No problem with his back. The problem is in his head.

A fairly winnable draw if he's mentally fit (considering Delpo is injured) but I really don't see him going far in this condition. Don't think it will be much of a surprise either if he lost in the very first match against whoever this qualifier might be.

Well, Vashy sure is in a horrible slump ... not even close to good form yet (& probably really low confidence) ... needs do SOMETHING in clay court season or risk of dramatic ranking drop. I see he is entering every tournament right through RG (MC -> Bucharest -> Munich -> Madrid -> Rome -> Nice -> RG) .. which would be 7 or 8 weeks in a row .. but of course, if you only play 1 match per tourney that isn't too much. Also suspect he'll get a lot of doubles actions with JK (next one in a couple hours) .. hopefully that experience can help his form & confidence on clay.

I would not be surprised if he was 0 for on clay this season.

It doesn't take much to start a roll again, one good match can get Vasek swinging it again. Too bad with his back injury, he was playing so well early in the year. Qualifier in R1 at Bucharest, hopefully a stream will be available

Has Vasek won a match since Ozzie? He is such a lovely person, so talented and all credit to you all in Canada. I wish him every success on the clay!

Vashy pulled out of the doubles with Knowle in Bucharest and he will be out of Munich too. With back spasm/pain. But he will stay in Europe for Madrid.

I assume his back is still giving him issues as he has pulled out of Nice. Hopefully he'll be ok for the French Open. Fortunately most of his big points to defend are in the later half of the season. Maybe he needs another few months off?

Default Re: Vasek Pospisil

Let's hope he really figured the problem with his back

http://www.tenniscanada.com/index.ph...GENIE&pid=5615

Quote:
Seeded No. 30 at Roland Garros, Pospisil was ineffectual in a 6-4, 6-2, 6-3 loss to the Russian. Gabashvili, 29, is playing the best tennis of his career but it was mostly a matter of one-way traffic with Pospisil looking uninspired and lethargic throughout the match.

One of the only positive moments was when he pulled off the above successful drop shot in the third set.

I spoke to Vasek briefly last Friday and he said that he had finally found out what the problem was with his back – an issue that first arose in the first week of the year when he had to retire in the semifinals of the Chennai, India, tournament against Stan Wawrinka.

He didn’t want to reveal exactly what the problem was but said he was taking some medication and seemed confident that he was definitely on the mend.

In probably the first match that he played as his “normal self” since withdrawing from the Australian Open third round in January, Pospisil lost 7-5, 7-6(4) to No. 20-ranked Kevin Anderson in Rome two weeks ago.

In his post-match media conference Monday, it became clear right from the outset that Vasek did not want to say what was going on with him during the match. But he was bitterly disappointed with his effort.

Here are some snippets of what he said.

“Against Anderson, I played a normal match – one of the very few. It was also one of the ones where I was able to fully able to focus on competition, which hasn’t been the case lately.”

Asked directly about the back, he replied, “I’d rather not talk about the back, to be honest, but let’s just say that Rome was the first time where I played pain-free and that was really good.

“It’s much better now, but there’s still some demons I have to face obviously.

“It’s a combination of a lot of things. But I didn’t recognize myself on the court today. That’s the disappointing part.

He said he didn’t want to say much about how he might be able to turn things around. “I’d rather not talk about it actually. I’m going to have to make some phone calls and figure out what to do exactly the next couple of weeks.”

Pospisil added the following about him and coach Frédéric Fontang: “We’ve just been trying to make the best decisions with the information that we’ve had. Obviously, some of them, you don’t know how you’re going to feel or the future or anything. We really found out what was happening (with the back) just a couple of weeks ago and so we kind of know how to manage it.”

He said he will play in the doubles event at Roland Garros and was insistent that he will also play Wimbledon.

Pospsil is one of the most likeable and popular Canadian players, and it was tough to see him so obviously flummoxed by what is happening to him.

To finish on a positive note, asked if what is going on is fixable – he replied with a clear “yes.”

Vasek finally wins a match (barely, in 3, over Lorenzi, on grass )

good luck vs Stakhovsky!
