    Was he THAT badly injured in beating Nadal?

    I hear silent bans are popular these days, and throughout all ages.

    So...


    Anyone have an update?


    Where is Waldo?

    I have a Waldo t-shirt. #Fact.

    Er, sorry don't know where he is. I guess he took a 6 month sabbatical after winning over one of the best guys in the world. Such was the mental scarring.

    Or am I thinking of someone else?

    Huh?

    I didn't comment on the silent ban theory, but rather referred to the theory of taking 6 months off caused by mental scarring after losing to a journeyman, no?

    I assumed that they were referring to me but you could be right, perhaps it was directed at yourself.

    Darcis was just lucky and Nadal wasn't moving too well.

    And... there we go with those crazy silent ban theories.

    I thought it was a well known fact that you're a Federer fan around here.

    There'd be no reason to give Darcis a silent ban. They didn't give them to Troicki or Cilic and they are much higher ranked and influential players.

    Nobody has come up with anything yet. I simply want to know, how's he doing?

    Is he still suffering from the same injury, when will he be back, yadda yadda yadda etc.

    In short, a news report. It would seem that the point of the thread was tremendously lost and that my posting style is too ambiguous. WHAT A SHAME.

    Anyone, then?

    Because of his injury his ranking dropped further and he had to play a few challengers. Then he picked up a new injury (can't remember what it was) and he hasn't played for a few months I think. Ranking dropped further to #170. Unlucky for him.

    I wonder exactly what the second injury was/is. Whatever it is, it must be quite serious because he's been out for a long time now, a really long time.

    Took me a while but I found it: http://www.hln.be/hln/nl/953/Tennis...1/Steve-Darcis-vier-tot-zes-maanden-out.dhtml

    Article is in Dutch, but apparently the shoulder was still troubling him so he decided to get a surgery (October 2013). Out for 6 months.

    Basically, it says "Defeat Nadal at your own peril".

    Thanks for these links, this is what I was looking for.

    This is really unfortunate... he actually required surgery on his shoulder.


    We need Warriorcis to be ready to rumble at Wimbledon. ;)

    Nadal should lose every clay tournament in 1R so that his ranking drops and he can play the Murrays and Djokers during the first week. Only the will he be ready to deal with the Rosols and Darcises the 2nd week.

    Stakhovsky is already studying hard, I'm not sure why though when the task is so ridiculously simple.

    Steve Darci is Marcy Darci's husband, on Married with Children. That's a good question. What did happen to him?
