Understandable if it affects your practice and preparations, and a blow to tournament organisers.

Hopefully he's back for Roland Garros. Sadly, the knee injury may lead to his premature retirement

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Slava's Auckland Quarter...

(1)Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) v Kristina Mladenovic (FRA)
Simona Halep (ROU) v Arantxa Rus (NED)
(wc)Eugenie Bouchard (CAN) v Elena Vesnina (RUS)
Lara Arruabarrena-Vecino (ESP) v (6)Yaroslava Shvedova (KAZ)

Should reach the Quarter Finals at least. Interesting potential QF with Aga. Some reason, i see another choke coming there . Slava will probs win the first set, be a break up in the 2nd, and have a chance to serve it out. but fails to do so in typical fashion. Aga takes the 2nd and then easily wins the 3rd.

Brisbane main draw
(1) Andy Murray (GBR) vs Bye
Tatsuma Ito (JPN) vs Qualifier
Radek Stepanek (CZE) vs (WC) Lleyton Hewitt (AUS)
(8) Martin Klizan (SVK) vs Denis Istomin (UZB)

(4) Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) vs Bye
Julien Benneteau (FRA) vs Jarkko Nieminen (FIN)
Tommy Robredo (ESP) vs Qualifier
(5) Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs Marinko Matosevic (AUS)

(6) Florian Mayer (GER) vs Santiago Giraldo (COL)
(WC) Benjamin Mitchell (AUS) vs Marcos Baghdatis (CYP)
Qualifier vs Alejandro Falla (COL)
(3) Gilles Simon (FRA) vs Bye

(7) Jurgen Melzer (AUT) vs Qualifier
(WC) Matthew Ebden (AUS) vs David Goffin (BEL)
Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs Brian Baker (USA)
(2) Milos Raonic (CAN) vs Bye

Hoping for a Murray vs Kei semi final. Raonic is a good shout for the final here.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Real pity about Nadal, as others have said it may be to cover up his knee injury or something. I was looking forward to him coming back though as I was intrigued as to how he would fare against the rest of the top ten or so. I'm afraid he might never come back at full strength now, he's likely going to be very very rusty when he does come back and it'll take him a little while to attempt to get back to his best. I believe the era of Murray/Djokovic (hopefully with Del Potro added in later in the season) is upon us!

Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.

Very likely will, I really don't see him coming back to his very peak after this long from the game, but we'll jsut have to wait and see.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Nadal may turn to the Spanish version of Hewitt - shows the hunger and fight that he's renowned for, but the injuries fatigue him quicker and thus he cannot challenge the top guys in the big games.

Kei defeats Matosevic 7-5,6-2. Good first match of the season for King Kei.

Wozniacki has lost already to Pervak in 3 sets. Kerber & Errani also won

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Slava wins her first match of the year 6-3,6-2. Didn't see it, but it looked like a mixed performance. Many winners, but many errors too.

In other results, Hantuchova defeated Errani, Pavlyuchenkova defeated Kvitova, Niculescu beat Robson, and Sharapova has withdrawn from Brisbane.

In the mens Brisbane tournament, there were wins for Istomin over Klizan, Robredo over Harrison, and Dimitrov over Baker. There were also wins for Melzer, Falla, and Goffin
