Not necessarily, he didn't have a bye two years ago - they only introduced that last year But yeah, I'm sure it must have been very stressful and tiring for him the past years, organizing his tournament then flying to another country to play a tournament the next day. I'm sad he won't be there though, especially since Rosmalen is a bit of a low-key tournament, very relaxed and Tommy is not mobbed by fans like he is in Spain

I know the feeling Gaby. Estoril is a lot like Rosmalen. No stressed fans all over him. But I'm sure you'll have better luck with it next year, then I'll ever see him back in Portugal

Tommy gets too involved in his own Tournament that you can see him really happy, but totally exhausted from working day and night out there. I remember him saying he was too tired he didn't even knew how he could run and win points on the Court and joking about it

Well, it should be Youzhny vs Robredo in the final with the result being the opposite of their last meeting at the US Open.

Ugh, he pulled out.

Quote:
31.05.2011 11:53:10 Tommy Robredo withdrew from the competition

Seed no. 2, Spanish Tommy Robredo currently ranked 31st, withdrew from the UniCredit Czech Open tournament. "We saw him practising on the court this morning but during the training he renewed his old injury and decided not to go on," said the tournament manager Jaroslav Navratil.

"Tommy got injured at the tournament in Indian Wells, he wrecked his thigh muscle and had it torn a little; now he has been practising for two weeks again and wanted to use our tournament to get back to the tour. It is a great pity for our tournament because of two reasons – firstly because he is a great player, and secondly we could have invited Stakhovsky or Tipsarevic.

There is nothing to be done now, we have to respect his decision. But I must say that he acted very professionally – his approach was more fair than to start a game, quit it and collect money … we saved some money but we will miss this player anyway," added Navratil.

Boo for injuries that won't heal, boo for unsympathetic tournament organisers ('we could have invited Stakhovsky instead' indeed :|) and just all round boo. Starting to wonder if he'll ever get better.

Ouch. It is bad news but much better than he would play in injured again. He has two free week, he isn't on entry list at Queen's/Halle and 's-Hertogenbosch/Eastbourne. It is weird decision, hopefully he will play finally at Wimbledon but isn't good prospects for his performance.

Tommy!!!

It's the 'renewed his old injury' that worries me silly. If it had said 'decided he wasn't quite fully fit' I'd've been OK with it; that would imply he's almost healed, but being sensible. But this suggests that it had got better and then flared up again. Which makes me fret like no-one's business.

...but then fretting is my default state; I'm a natural-born worrywart. :/

He must be devastated! I actually hope he'll skip Wimbledon, he has no points to defend and surely the grass is very risky for this kind of injury... I think he should not play any tournaments until he is 100% sure he's better, perhaps even longer than that. These kind of situations only add to the frustration

Feel better soon Tommy!

I just want him back for Bastad--not only for the points, but because it's over my birthday. What a wonderful birthday present that would be.

Unfortunately it doesn't surprise me he's still not well, because these kind of injuries are very tricky

Nevertheless, he did the right decision pulling out. Poor Tommy

As for the Tounament people at least they know he didn't go there just for the money. But saying they could have picked other players
