I know you tell player's forum but it's quite rare that tennis player undergoes a spine injury.

Next week Ula will undergo an operation filling defects in the injured vertebra. Good news that one of the best surgeons in USA will do it. He operated e.g. Taylor Dent. He said that our daughter would be fully physically healthy. After the surgery she will have five weeks of rehabilitation so we decided to us Protected Ranking so Ula won't lose her points so Ula will come back near Wimbledon.
- Robert Radwański

So now let's keep fingers crossed for the surgery ans plz come back strong ;)

Spine surgery? That doesn't sound very nice. But if everyone seems to think it should all be okay and she should be fine come Wimbledon then I guess it's not the end of the world. Let's just hope they are right.

I remember the news reports when this first came out, and they said she had the same injury as Safina. That was worrisome, this even more. I wish her well.

thats not good news for her long term tennis career...Dent was out of tennis for nearly two years after sugery.The father is more worried about her losing points than her health,if she comes back early she might ruin her career...plus she is not a top tier player so she wont be greatly missed.

This is pretty major and I think it qualifies as enough of a general interest to rate a thread here. Poor Ula. Hopefully she'll recover. She's not top tier but she's not a total hack either.

:rolleyes: She just turned 19 before the season started! Ula has GREAT potential with a LOT of talent. And yes she will be greatly missed until she returns :sad: :bigcry:

Come on Ula! Come back at Wimby and show everyone wrong, make a QF :)

Spine surgery? :scared:
Don't think she'll be back by Wimbledon, unless it's incredibly minor.

Urszula was always the one of slender built and I'd imagine this would hurt her more then some of the athletic players. Could be unlikely for Wimbledon...

Back problems are a big deal for tennis players.
They ended Kournikova and Golovin's careers.
And hurt Safina's career badly.

Terrible news :sad:

It must not be too big of a procedure if she plans to come back that soon. Hopefully it goes well :hug:

Is it a just a matter of bad luck when players suffer injuries of the back, wrist etc? Or is it due to poor technique?
(I'm not addressing Ula, just musing in generalities.)

When it is the latter, it doesn't make sense to have too much sympathy should the player's career suffer due to the injury.
After all, she may be hitting the ball in an unsustainable way to gain an advantage over the competition. Cost/benefit.

Apparently the cause of her injury is genetic. :(

Not interested in some kind of neo-liberal morality of health by trying to determine who 'deserves' no sympathy and who does. :rolleyes: Spine surgery sounds pretty serious to me.

However you came by your injury, get well soon Ursula.

GL Ursula!

I'm sure she'll still wangle herself into a player party or two (it still bemuses me how she got into the Doha one last year).

In all seriousness, get well soon kid.

WTF? Neo-liberal? I've no idea what you are talking about.


Oh, poor Ula. I can't see her making it back for Wimbledon, but I hope she can come back. She has some promise. Hope she's not out as long as Dent, but she is young, so...

Also, I really hope Dinara can recover from her back problems soon. I miss that Sanowa.

I think he meant the first quoted message. If so I agree with the statement. :yeah:

However you came by your injury, get well soon Ursula.There's a difference between having sympathy for a player's health, and for their career.
And let's pretend that people never ever determine, consciously or subconsciously, who "deserves" sympathy.

Anyway, this doesn't have anything much to do with Ula. It just seemed like the right thread.
