Yes, I agree totally. Very unlucky not to get the opportunity to give it her all this year at Wimbledon. Very frustrating and no doubt worrying for her and her family to end up in intensive care after some great performances this year. I hope she gets back to full health ASAP

Goodness. That sounds as if it was truly grim. I hope she continues her recovery well, and that the doctors work out what the cause was. And that the family are able to take some time just to be together - that's a lot of emotion to go through in one week.

 Yes, really quite an ordeal, poor things.  Really hope it doesn't end up as some kind of chronic issue.

Alex Ward tweeting that he's been back on court for 30 mins and the forearm pain seems to be recovering well.

Fingers crossed and good luck to you !

(But it's the thing I'm always nervous about with him; two stress fractures in the forearm is not a regular occurrence......)


Evan Hoyt also showing pictures of him in the gym, doing shoulder rehab.

And Joss Rae is also 'rehabbing' her injury in the gym too....


Best wishes to all.

Re Alex.  When I spoke to his coach earlier this season after Alex had withdrawn from Murcia with the same problem, the consensus was that as a result of the stress fracture a couple of years back, the muscles in the forearm work overtime to compensate from the (perceived) weakness in the bone and that the muscle tightness was the problem and not a recurrence fo the tress fracture itself.  My fear is, that if this is "learned behaviour" by the muscles, Alex is always going to have to live with this problem and will find it difficult to maintain a heavy schedule.

Re Evan, I spoke to him at Wimbledon qualies and he was saying 6-8 weeks before he would be playing again.  Hopefully he is on track for that timescale.

Great to have some news (and, seemingly, not bad news either).

And the same wishes obviously go to Billy Harris and all other players who are battling injuries/illness

PS Saw some tweets from Gabi Taylor looking quite spry and healthy - so that looks good

Yes, I also had checked Gabi Taylor on Twitter the other day to see how she was and was most encouraged. And likewise, thank you, BiS, for the info on Alex Ward. Like CD, I'd been worrying. All the best to them and all the others!

I know it's not 'British' but I never even realised this had happened:

What a freaky, awful accident. All the best to her, and good luck with her tennis, now things seem to be going in the right direction.

That's a bit similar to Sarah Borwell - she got hit on the back of the head by a ball and was never the same again.

That's s bit different from smaking your head against the cement when falling backwards which must be up there as one of the few ways you can kill yourself on a tennis court.

The number of times you see a single knockout punch resulting in manslaughter charges is usually due not to the punch but the blow to the back of the head when the victim hits the ground.

Very nasty indeed, great to hear Casey is on the mend and looking to get back for the Aussie open

You'd think but Sarah's symptoms were probably even worse than Casey's.

Thanks for posting, it does sound like she was pretty unlucky, particularly given how compressible a tennis ball is compared to concrete.

Concussion is obviously a big thing out here (US) and the repeated cynical brutality of the hits inflicted on Sydney Crosby mentioned later in tha article have to be seen to be believed and the guy in ice hockey circles would be the equivalent of Novak.

The issue as it effects the NFL is better documented and the movie "concussion" (2015) well worth a watch, fortunately in comparison tennis had relatively little to worry about although falls on hard courts are an obvious issue, there is a fantastic much more forgiving surface that I think they ought to consider for the US and Australian opens, it's called grass.
