Stanislas Wawrinka Is Still Getting Treatment For His Thigh, But For Now It’s OK

Stanislas Wawrinka limped into the French Open nursing a thigh injury. The Swiss who made the Madrid final injured his thigh and was questionaable to play Paris. But he says the injury is improving and he feels no pain, for now.

“I’m still continuing to have treatment for that thigh, but I look after it,” he said yesterday after a win over De Bakker. “I will tell you, if you like, tomorrow how it stands, but it looks okay. When I felt no pain for my thigh, that was great.”

Wawrinka, who’s never been to the quarterfinals at the French Open, could face Rafael Nadal next week in the quarterfinals.

“For my preparation wise, I’m happy and relieved that I saw no pain for my thigh, which means I can put this behind me now while retaining obviously top of mind that I was wounded in the past,” he said. “But I don’t think we need to think about this right now. No excuses to be had. I can devote myself entirely to the tournament and the up and coming match.”

Wawrinka will play the Zeballos-Pospisil winner on the Thursday in the second round.

Hopefully everything will be fine,and Stan can still carry on playing.

contador Says:

hippy chic – sorry you didn’t make it into the bracket. You would probably be at the top !

contador Says:

Picked Jerzy over Stanley. I am a sucker for an injury report.

Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Contador i really dont know what happened TBH? I filled everything in a couple of times,i dont know where it was i went wrong?(sratching head),im quite p*ssed off really,as you say and without bragging i would be doing quite well,the majority i picked have gone through so far,with the odd exception(sigh,shame):(.

contador Says:

Ye – you have been awesome picking in the ATP 1000 bracket.

I wrote you a note, I think. My internet explorer browser would not work with this bracket – sometimes one browser will work and another won’t. Safari worked fine. So maybe try filling out the thing with a different browser for Wimbles. :)

Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Just to add im determined that the same thing will not happen,when i fill out the Wimbledon bracket,DAMN so annoyed.

Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Contador thankyou but i think its more out of pure luck than anything else,i missed the Rome one as i was away,and unfortunatly had no access to a computer,but thanks for the advice,ill bear it all in mind in time for Wimbles :D.
