    On Medical advice. Nothing serious; just needs 4 or 5 days rest


    "Under advice from medical experts I have had to withdraw from the Barcelona tournament due to a right elbow injury," he said in a statement.

    "I'm going to take four to five days rest and begin practising next week."


    Berdych also out with 'flu

    Disappointing but understandable.

    No point in putting undue stress on the inflamed elbow until it has had to time to heal properly.Sensible decision.

    Sad. But I hope he is back in full form for Madrid.

    Keep off the video games Andy. Not good for elbow.

    I think it's pretty sensible.

    Don't you worry about Rafa. He will be just fine.

    Right elbow injury - I hate the sound of that. Elbows can be so tricky.

    Andy has been diagnosed with a Wii Elbow.
    It's not the same as a Golf Elbow as some think.

    Wasn't that Roddick's wisecrack about The New King having Avian Bird Flu ;)
