Oh? Is she not wheelchair-bound herself, then?

Oh yes she is!
Esther developed paraplegia when she was 8 years old due to an otherwise successful, very risky surgery concerning hemorrhaging blood vessels around her spinal cord.

Completely sentenced to her wheelchair ever after.

She was pushing those wheelchairs, while being in a wheelchair herself.
She's a genuine sportslady, remember.

Ouch, nasty. But I was just wondering how she was propelling the other wheelchairs while propelling her own!

Despite us having held the Paralympics last year, I have to keep reminding myself that not everyone in the wheelchair disciplines is actually normally a wheelchair user - I just assume nobody's come up with prosthetics yet which are sufficiently stress-resistant to allow you to run from side to side on a court in the same way you can run forwards round a track.

With one hand she was propelling her own chair, with her other hand she was pushing some 20 left-over abandonned wheelchairs.
I kid you not.

Yeah, good point, I always wonder in what ways the PTB decide how much or less an athlete is indeed a paralyzed athlete, as it's so difficult to distinguish one's remaining physical abilities between, say, someone with a broken neck and someone who's lost his/her legs to cancer, just to name a nasty, extreme example.

Ms. Vergeer, however, is totally bound to her wheelchair.
It might become interesting if anyone would offer her - or rather, her younger colleagues, as she's reaching the age of retirement by now - some ingenious kind of prosthetics, like happened with those runners.

Ah, nice piccies, Kat!
Best of all I think that it's always so nice to see Rodge get along well with whatever his main rivals at any tournament he enters.
It's damn clear that he appreciates both JMDP, and Tsonga, and I guess the majority of other players in Rotterdam just the same.

Roger should play on Wednesday at 7:30pm

This is what he wrote on his FB page:
Quote:

Thanks to all my great fans for this week's 'Red Envelope'. I always get so excited to receive it each tournament week. Looking forward to playing my first match on Wednesday at 7:30pm....
and before he posted this smily pic:

Quote:

Excited to be back in Rotterdam!
