Good luck against Igor!! Can't follow on livescore though I'm afraid. Janko won, now I must get on with my day! But I'll be supporting form afar! :lol:

To be honest I don't know either Cat :shrug: :awww: I was at work and in a meeting, so couldn't even follow the scores :sad: When I got home, I saw Misha had retired, but there is nothing on GM about it, and they haven't mentioned a reason on Sky TV either :sad: I'm assuming it had something to do with the injury he got in DC practice, but of course if I find out anything definite later I'll post it here. Misha :hug:

Every player has ups and downs, maybe this is a down, he doesn't feel well (bodywise) let's look at the bright side : he may come back in form, and he has not so much to defend this summer.. maybe I'm too optimistic right there :lol:

No - actually you're being very sensible I think :) Tennis players are only human beings - they have good and bad times the same as everyone else. might be mental, might be physical, might be personal stuff :shrug: He went though a really good time, now is time for something a little less spectacular - it's just life :)

You're right. It's normal.. even if the words Misha and spectacular are supposed to fit together :worship:

Youzhny, who retired during his opening match at Monte Carlo with a neck injury, may be out for a month, according to Russian tennis chief Shamil Tarpishchev. As a result, Russia may not field a team for the World Team Cup at Dusseldorf.
does anyone know more???:confused:

Haven't heard anything definite, no - though I think it is quite likely that Misha will withdraw from Rome next week to give his neck more time to heal, at least according to this link, which I believe has already been posted in the tournament thread http://sport.gazeta.ru/sport/2008/04/a_2709290.shtml
There, let's get ready for a bad Roland Garros. With no preparation on clay, and no clay court confidence, (and a down in his general confidence) I'm not sure Misha will go far in RG. :sad: unless a miracle happens, which is always possible with Misha.. but somehow I doubt it :sad: What did SHE do to him ?? (that's the obvious and hidden reason behing his neck injury, can't you tell ?!!!)

Well - whatever she did - I hope he had fun :)

No - seriously - I am sad for Misha, but, let's be honest, - clay is not his best or favoured surface - so if there is a "good" time for him to be injured - then better now than in the US hardcourt swing, or even on the grass, where he is more likely to gain good points. I hope this injury is not too serious, but I do think he needs to take good time and rest properly - or it may happen again later in the year :sad:

Get well soon Misha :hug:
