I haven't heard about Tahir's injury
Again, I'm not positive, but the dots connect. He played four clay futures in a row with the first two having to get through Qualies to get into the main draw. When you add up all the doubles he played as well, it's over thirty matches in a four week period. Maybe it's something like tendinitis. Maybe in his forearm since you say he has an unusual **** in his forehand mechanics. Anyway, he makes the USTA collegiate team, gets a $3K grant and the possibility of wild cards into Challengers and then hasn't played a match since Pittsburgh? Something's up, I'd say. I wish the colleges would let us know about this stuff. They do it for basketball, football. All it takes is a couple of lines in the stories they publish on their websites.
