I know it's ATP - but best wishes to Leander Paes

Paes Admitted to Hospital--Out of USOpen
Posted on 8/19/2003 at 5:24 PM


Leander Paes To Withdraw From U.S. Open For Medical Reasons

Leander Paes, 1996 Olympic Tennis Bronze Medal Winner and 2003 Wimbledon mixed doubles champion with Martina Navratilova, has been admitted to M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Orlando. Paes checked himself into the emergency room of a local hospital near his home, on Sunday, Aug. 17, after suffering from severe headaches for three days.

After an initial brain CT scan and MRI, Leander was told that he has a lesion in the left occipital region of the brain. This morning, doctors transferred him to M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Orlando where an expert medical team has been assembled. At this time, multiple tests are being conducted to determine the specific cause of this lesion. The results are expected within a few days, during which time Leander will remain hospitalized. A brain tumor has not been ruled out.

Leander and his family are trying to cope with this sudden setback and family members are en route to the United States. Leander's father, Dr. Vece Paes, prays that the tumor is not cancerous and states that all the good wishes and prayers by his fans are appreciated.

I hope it is nothing serious and that he is well soon.

It has been great to see him help Martina Navratilova back to Grand Slam glory this year.

Hope he's ok. Great year for him with 2 slam mixed titles with Martina. Wonder who she'll play with now.

Ouhg. I saw Leander play in Charleroi back in 2000. He's very entertaining to watch.
Hope he recovers soon.
