Re: Ana Konjuh

We all know that Ana is the most deserving player to be number 1 right now. The only players that might argue with that are Townsend, who still is inconsistent and not good enough on clay, and Abanda, who's been through so many injuries. Belinda is a top junior, but she's no match for Ana.
However, there are 2 positives involved: motivation to become #1 again and less pressure in Wimby

PS: Belinda is one of my faves though and I'm 'wearing' an avatar with her for a while

Re: Ana Konjuh

^ they usually said "arm problems" and her tape was always on the lower part of her upper arm.

I like the way they are handling this, it appears they have it figured out - now it's just a matter of doing what has to be done

Re: Ana Konjuh

Don't have time for translating the whole article, sorry

But they say Ana's visited a specialist in Strasbourg after RG, who confirmed that the problem is a bone growth on her patella joint on her elbow, which causes pain in her muscle when she streches her hand. This injury is not uncommon amongst athletes and also one French tennis player has had it and he's overcome it. They are planing to get a second opinion and after that she will most likely undergo a surgery which would "remove" this growth. Her father says that ideally this surgery would happen after the US open and she would be able to train moderately 6 weeks later and play as soon as 3 months after the procedure. SHe would then play AO.

Re: Ana Konjuh

Also she will not play doubles in the next two slams.

She is using another JE after Wimbledon in Contrexeville 50k.

Re: Ana Konjuh

Surgery is risky, but only solution.

I don't know why it should be a risk...sounds to me as a routine surgery...

Re: Ana Konjuh

Well, every surgery certainly carries some degree of risk, but it would be best if some medical professional would offer an opinion here so that we know the facts.

Re: Ana Konjuh

I assume that there is no risk of doing further damage by playing through it (she already has been doing so for quite some time). Let's hope all goes well whenever the procedure is done and she is 100% healthy for her first year on tour in 2014.
