After pulling off 2 very impressive victories, 1 of them a 5 setter over Richard Gasquet, Russia's Mikhail Youzhny has been forced to withdraw from the Australian Open with a sprained wrist. The world number 2o played through the injury in his 2nd round match, an easy win over Jan Hajek, but was told by doctors that he risked further aggravating it if he stepped on court to play number 86 Lukasz Kubot in their 3rd round match.
I obviously can't feel the pain that Youzhny is playing with, but, there is a rumor that Nicholas Almagro has been competing with a broken wrist. Sort of puts Mikhail's toughness in question, because his is only sprained.
Get well soon.
