Good News, Bad News

Posted by gauloises1 on May 19, 2010

Mario Ancic has been given a wildcard for Queens.

Mario Ancic has injured his back in practice and been forced to withdraw from Nice to rest up.

While we’re on the subject … Kolya, Karlovic, Steps, Igor Andreev and Gilles have all withdrawn from the French Open. Not to mention El Rey David.

So really not so much ‘good news, bad news’ as ‘bad news, worse news’.

    seriously?? injured?? Poor Mario. he needs to be transported swaddled in goose down, on the back of a magic carpet drawn by white doves. such a stupidly delicate flower.

    My reaction was to laugh. I mean it’s sad, of course, but at this point with Mario’s frailty and terrible timing is just so totally ridiculously crazy. Like some really odd joke the tennis gods are playing.

    Also we should postpone RG. Surely there is a quorum for slams? No? Well there should be.

    Just wait. In about 2 days the news for RG will sound something like …

    “And your number 1 seed, Eduardo Schwank!”

    Good lord. Poor Mario. He should just retire. I mean, at least he maybe won’t get injured.

    I’m sad most for Gilles. He’s just vanished 😦
