But isn't it to his credit that he didn't let the organisers down?  And they showed their appreciation with that cake.

Andy should have rested up and enjoyed his gold and silver wins. Cinci would have been better for him as prep for US open. The Fed always rests up and did not want to face Andy again so soon after being wapped.

Took a 2 week break from tennis and got back onto the court on Thurs - spent 2.5 hrs hitting on hardcourt after spending most of summer on clay and my left knee was killing me. Went out for another 2.5 hr hit today and my knee was fine.

Your body gets a shock with change of surface and Andy is just going through the same.
Indeed it does.  I used to experience the same thing.  Hard courts are murder on the body for 2 or 3 days, and it's probably even worse making the sudden transition from grass to hard as Andy had to do.

Maybe he tripped.  Shrug
Just looked at his official website but no explanation is given.  However, doctors have told him to rest his knee for 10 days.

^ My thoughts too - they're quite big and painted red.  Maybe he was still a bit jet-lagged?

I heard he ran into a fire hydrant and had eight stitches in his knee.

Sorry, just read subsequent replies. I too initially thought it was a car accident.

How the hell do you run into a fire hydrant?

Jo-Wilfried has pulled out because he was in a car accident last night and had to have his knee stitched.

Poor lad, what a shame.

^ The fire hydrant story has been confirmed by tennis.com, who removed the word "car" from their article's title.


I believe Alex Salmond and the Scottish Parliment are organising a reception for the Scolympians (as he calls them), but with a schedule like Andy's, attending things like this are always going to be tricky, such a shame really, it is always the same with the Sports Personality of the Year both the BBC one and the Scottish Sports Awards (which he won last year) they always clash with his pre AO training stint.
I really hate Alex Salmond calling them that.  It sounds like a nasty disease!

Andy might be OK for this reception, if they schedule it properly.  He usually returns to the UK after the USO before going on to the Far East, and also the off-season now lasts for 7 weeks instead of 5, which is why the WTF starts on 5 November this year, so Andy might be able to attend before going off to train in Miami.  I would think though that the reception would be held as soon after the Olympics as possible.

Obviously some misinformation here, another report says this:

Freak accident rules Jo-Wilfried Tsonga out of Cincinnati Open
By Jack Prescott, Olympic Tennis Correspondent
Filed: Friday, August 10, 2012 at 21:52 UK

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has pulled out of next week's Cincinnati Open following a freak accident in Toronto.

The world number six, who was competing in the Rogers Cup, had to have stitches in his knee after he ran into a fire hydrant in the street.

Earlier reports had suggested that the French Olympic silver medallist had been involved in a car accident."
