Re: US Open 2012!
"The day after I played my doubles match in New Haven, a nerve in my lower back got pinched and I basically couldn’t get up for 3 days. In the two days that preceded my match with Gréta, I could practice only 30 minutes. There is a great physiotherapist here in New York, the same person that treated me in 2007. The treatment I got helped me to be able to play at all. I really didn’t want to retire, especially that I was playing a Hungarian player, I wanted to be fair. But my back was really hurting and even though I took a couple of painkillers before the match, the moment came when I just couldn’t play any longer. I will try to play the doubles though, because I promised Melinda I’d play, and it wouldn’t be fair to her if I withdrew. "
