Smart move. As much as he loves Houston, health always comes first. Even if the injury isn;t huge, there's no reason to play through it and make it even bigger and force you to sit out for god knows how long. Even if it's the clay court swing and a surface Andy detests, I'm sure he's pissed he'll be sitting out for the next couple of weeks.

I'm sure that he wasn't. In fact, he never said he was. He said it was just good enough to play. And with the style he played that match (aka tons of running and little aggression), it's hardly surprising he re-tweaked it. Bummer b/c of the history he had in the tourney but all in all not a big deal.

But sorry, Jimnik, I'm SURE he won't play MC. First of all, if you read the article it says that he was told to take a week to 10 days off. That means no MC per doctor's orders if nothing else. Second, the article also mentions that his next scheduled tourney was Rome. So he was (as we all know) never planning to play in the first place.

anyway, if he heals for Rome, he'll be fine. But he needs to play Rome.

And this is certainly one of the most unflattering photos ever.

Beating bye on clay is not enough, not even for Andy. Or will it?

I'm sure he'd rather stay home and beat up John at poker or something.

Because they only update once per day, they will take care of it when all of the matches are finished tonight.

At this point, instead of changing surfaces - you know how natural my movement is on clay in the first place - it would probably be best to make sure I get healthy.

Another year, another skipped MC...Shocker.

It's good that he's taking out the time to heal properly. I was worried that him playing in DC will worsen it, but it sounds like he re-aggrevated it which was bound to happen with such little down-time. Happy healing and Rome, it is! (:

Awwwww Andy.

It's for the best though. If he's gonna fullfill my Roland Garros dream where he makes the semis, then he needs to be healthy.
