Since last week Shahar has a sternum injury which was diagnosed yesterday as a severe inflammation. She didn't practice at the weekend at all because she had strong pains and the WTA doctor said that this kind of injuries request a long rest without practicing and of-course playing.

Shahar won't practice till the match vs. Tu in the First Round of the US OPEN, but she made it clear that she is not going to give up on such an important tournament: "I have serious pains, I'll try to be ready for Tuesday, in my opinion I'll be on the court in any case and do the best that I can".

If she won't recover she probally will have to make an operation that may shut Shahar down for a long time.

:sad: :sad: :sad: speedy recovery Shahar!!!!

Oh wow... I don't think she should play. She's risking an even bigger injury in doing so. That's scary.

Darn, terrible news. I hope she doesn't exacerbate the injury in her match.

She should withdraw. She is still so young, so she can bounce back after a lay-off, rather than risk some long term damage by playing this match.

wow sternum injuries are amongst the most painful you can get. I remember i damaged mine playing rugby when i was at school and the pain was just excruciating because it's most intense just from breathing - which obviously isn't something you can stop doing. i remember my doctor's only remedy was "TLC" :lol:

she will do very well to get past Tu considering she gets a lot of balls back.

She started the season very well,this is not a good sign for sure.She should take a long break after the Open to recover.

She shouldn't play the US Open honestly if the injury is that painful, she is still very young, she will have many other possibilities to give play a Grand Slam. Those kinds of decision could backfire on her & her carrier. Stay wise Shahar, please :sad:.

Shahar :sad:
Hopefully it won't be one of those injuries when you push them and they get even worse and she would have to stay out of the game for longer :(

:bigcry: :bigcry: :bigcry: Shahar :bigcry: :bigcry: :bigcry:

I can't believe it, why now why???

I am telling you, it's all because of Na Li, When she lost Shahar lost and when she got injured Shahar followed her after a couple of monthes!

Please get well soon Shahar! And if you can not play, don't go on court it will just get it worse.

Why play if its a really serious injury?

Shahar shouldnt play if its really that serious.

I think Shahar should just pull out. I don't want her to risk anything.

I don't know why players want to play so much if they know they're gonna loose early, and if the injuries might get worse:confused:

That sucks for Shahar. I hope she doesn't make it worse by trying to play against Tu. Speedy recorvery! :hug:

I'm not sure if such a cavalier attitude is a good thing if the injury is serious. I know Shahar is a fighter but this might not be the best time to fight.

They mentioned it briefly on Saturday night. I think she just got some good treatment and it's not bothering her much...wasn't as serious as it sounded.

I think maybe something got lost in the translation :shrug:
I never got the impression that the injury was absolutley crippling
Just that she needed significant treatment.

Don't get mad at me people for merging all different threads about Shahar here. However please make sure you don't see several threads on a particular player in GM after a match.

If shahar is not slam material so what golovin worth?
A loss to role? she should learn from shahar, came with a very serious injury to the US and now has a great chanse going to the finals, she can meet players who she has beaten them this year (chacky,paszek,kuzy) she has great chance now, and golovin can just watch her on tv and be jealous :bounce:

I just want to thank whoever took apart these threads again. :yeah:

If Serena, Venus, Maria, Justine can have have 173018731 threads about different topics in GM, Shahar can have THREE. :rolleyes:

Agreed. Venus literally "gutted it out" with what started as a slight ab tear late in Wimby '03, beating Kim in the SF and (going thru the motions, I guess) vs. kid sis in the final. By the time she held the RU trophy @ SW19, her season was ova.

Yeah. That abdominal tear in Warsaw just worsened through RG and Wimbledon. It was awful to know that Venus was in pain like that, and I knew her season was done after that.

having watched Peer play in this tournament i can only come to the conclusion that the sternum injury is very mild one or she really is a robot (literally). You simply can't perform some of the movement she has been displaying when you've got a serious sternum injury. Well you probably can, but you would see a lot more agony on her face than we currently are.

Okay this is the story...(This is my first message here.. :-)
Acording to the people that escort her in tournament she suffered before the tournament from a inflammation..
She had a serious pain so she stoped the training for a few days until the first game...
During does days she was getting a treatment from an a special Doctor that came with the israeli players and give her an exercises to ease the pain.
The massages helped her to fill much better and after the first two games she said she feels better and don't have pain almost at all..

She said right after her first match that she felt good and almost no pain at all, she never claimed to be playing seriously injured once the tournament started. When she got injured she stopped practicing, got treatment, got better - isn't it how those things suppose to work?

Shahar and Justine can both fight and have a great all-court game. Probably that's why the injuries don't bother them too much :wavey:

Having a shoulder injury seriously effects your serve and it hurts hitting a one-handed backhand. Justine is doing fine.

Same shit as Nadal. Claims to be injured to lower expectations, and then proceeds to demolish the opposition.
