Avoid Those Doctors, Lanky Donkey

(If you didn’t know ‘Nikolay Davydenko’ is an anagram for ‘Avoid Lanky Donkey’, well, now you do.)
Sad news for the Kolyanation: Nikolay Davydenko was forced to withdraw from his third round match with Viktor Troicki because of a broken left wrist. Kolya has been suffering since he fell on his wrist during Rotterdam, but the injury was apparently misdiagnosed and he tried to play on until pain and swelling forced him to hand the walkover to Troicki. An MRI scan then revealed a fracture that had been missed.
Kolya will apparently be in a splint for four weeks and who knows how much time he’ll miss. Which really, really sucks. Get well soon, Donkey; we miss you when you’re gone …
