  • [injury]TOMIC HIP INJURY
    Tomic has confirmed his withdrawal prior to his second-round match with fourth seed Ferrer earlier today was due to a left hip injury. The 21-year-old Australian had surgery on both hips at the start of the year but says the pain is not in the same place as before.
    I did the best thing not to play. I don't want to muck around with that area. For sure something is there. I've got to get it checked. Got to get it analysed the next few days ... It's painful. I needed to go out against David today and be 100 percent on my game. I was playing good the last month. But it's unfortunate now.
    Tomic is unsure if he will be available for Australia's Davis Cup World Group playoff tie against visiting Uzbekistan, starting September 12.
    For sure my biggest priority is to get this hip checked and see what the cause is and what problem is. Then after that I can look into whether I can go down to Australia for the event in Perth for the Davis Cup.


    8/29/2014 8:20:34 PM

    8/29/2014 8:40:42 PM
  • [game-set-match]GASQUET BEATS LORENZI 7-6 6-3 6-3
    Gasquet closes out a trouble-free, straight-sets win over Lorenzi and will advance to a third-round meeting with French compatriot Monfils, who leads the career head-to-head 6-4, including both meetings in 2014.

    Thiem completes his recovery from two sets down to beat 11th seed Gulbis in three hours and 45 minutes. Gulbis did receive treatment to his back after losing the fourth set but it was still a superb turnaround from the 20-year-old Austrian, who is ranked 45 in the world. Mixed emotions right now for Gunter Bresnik, who coaches both men. Thiem's reward is a third-round meeting with Feliciano Lopez.
