He tried this with the elbow and it was costly. If it is a minor surgery which it looks to be, get it done instead of having a fiasco like the elbow issue.If Novak is injured, he might not want to leap onto the surgeons table immediately. He might want to see if taking some time off might be enough to heal his injury. Sure there are some year-end tournies, but frankly the main part of the tennis season is over. Depending on the injury, avoiding surgery, if possible, seems to be the wiser choice. Not all surgeries work in the way intended.
Novak is my second favorite. I sure enjoy watching him play.
I reckon it's time for good ole' Nole to hang up his racket and call it quits. He has a remarkable career to reflect on, while he's drinking cocktails in his mansion in Monaco.
How about mocktails then?He's said he's a teetotaler, so no booze.
Is it sure ?YE #1 seems lost so this is the right time to get it I guess so he can try to peak for AO next year.
Didn't know it was that serious.
He could still withdraw because of his shoulder (actually that’s what he should do even if he’s not injured anymore). That’s dumb to risk his health for an ATP 500 event.If he actually plans to play a 500 tournament (and so far I didn't hear any news about him withdrawing) then I guess he is fine.
This year was the first time when he decided to limit his schedule a bit. It surprises me that he wants to play a 500 tournament.He could still withdraw because of his shoulder (actually that’s what he should do even if he’s not injured anymore). That’s dumb to risk his health for an ATP 500 event.
I mean he basically said it’s not that bad and that he’ll be back soon. Returning in 2 weeks doesn’t suggest any major problem to me. I think he’ll push really hard for YE1, he doesn’t want Nadal to get it or give up his chase for Roger’s weeks at number 1 record.It worries me that he’s still being so secretive. I hope it doesn’t mean his shoulder is still an issue.
