Through The Pain In Monte Carlo
no.1 Novak Djokovic admitted he certainly felt pain in his suspect right
ankle after taking the calculated risk of deciding to contest the Monte
Carlo Rolex Masters just ten days after suffering what appeared a
serious injury securing Serbia’s place in the Davis Cup semi-finals.
Sometimes It Is The Receiver Who Delays Play
Murray added his opinions to the ever growing debate on the umpiring of
the time violation rule, maintaining the officials should be as diligent
in monitoring the delaying tactics of the returning player and they have
been with the server.
One More Fed Cup Player
Fed Cup captain Judy Murray will not announce her decision on who gets
the second singles spot in the World Group II play-off against Argentina
in Buenos Aires until just before the start of play tomorrow (Friday)
with Elena Baltacha poised for an unlikely return.
For Understanding In Speeding Up Play
Djokovic is asking for a bit of understanding as the ATP attempts to
speed up the game this season by coming down hard on time-wasting after
the end of a point. Djokovic, making his return after an ankle injury
with an opening win in Monte Carlo, got a time warning in his victory
over Mikhail Youzhny but said that the chair official should have some
leeway at his disposal.
He’s Not A Media Target
Gasquet has come under some criticism for not being able to play
France’s Davis Cup tie against Argentina the week before last. Gasquet,
who reached the semifinals of Miami the week prior, injured his right
ankle and had to pull out of the tie just before it began. Giles Simon
substituted for Gasquet, but lost both of his matches and France went
down 3-2 despite Jo Wilfried Tsonga winning both his contests. Argentina
also won the doubles point.
Might Have Trouble In Fed Cup Competition
could be limited against Switzerland in their Fed Cup tie this weekend
if former US Open winner Samantha Stosur cannot be fit from the calf
injury which has bothered her for a month or more. The Aussie has not
played for several weeks since quitting a match in the US with the
problem and also missed last month's Miami event.
