    Walk it off, rub some dirt on it

    Not Your Normal Tennis Injury

    In the few weeks between the French Open and Wimbledon there are a few weeks in between when players tune up their grass court games. What happened at the Queen's tournament in England to Marc Gicquel should not be permitted under any circumstances. Here is the caption from Yahoo! Sports:

    "Frenchman Marc Gicquel is dragged away by a doctor after he received a serve, travelling at 208 kilometres per hour, in the testicles during the fourth day of the Halle ATP tennis tournament, 14 June 2007 at the Gerry-Weber-Stadion in Halle, western Germany. Gicquel continued his second-round tie against German Benjamin Becker after treatment."

    And just what was the treatment he received?

    By the way, 208 km's is the same as 129 mph.

    The pics of Gicquel and his trainer in the link below are interesting . . .

    Clearly no real harm done. If he had really taken a 129mph serve full-on in the naughty bits, he'd be on his side in the fetal position, face contorted into something barely recognizable as a human expression, possibly ralphing his guts out.

    Apparently the doctor's job description has been changed to include "ball boy".

    I remember reading about one unfortunate cricketer who got hit in the 'box' (the hard plastic protector cricketers use). It was turned inside out and he had to have surgery to retrieve his testicle from where it had been driven into his body (I assume it got stuck in the cavity in his groin).

    I remember playing tenis in gym class in high school. Trying to blast your opponent in the yam bag was pretty much all I remember doing.
