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 . . .
