ANDY'S Comeback Today

Post by Grossefavourite » Aug Mon 12, 2019 10:22 am

He plays Gasquet today. I feel severe pain just thinking about him playing. He had what's called 'hip resurfacing surgery' which involves removing the part of the damaged bone with the hip bone socket, replacing it with a metal shell. Hip resurfacing is a type of hip replacement surgery.

Good luck, Andy, and welcome back. I just love his game and bad attitude. The way his eyebrows furrow when he's annoyed is priceless. Wish he could regrow his afro.

He lost the 1st set to Gasquet and is down a break in the 2nd.
Gonna be a tough walk back at the top of the podium. Should be easier than trying to do that @ WTA. There is more depth. Girls like Boozkova, SWaitek, Kuzmova, Kaja, McNally, can take over a match.

Not bad losing 4 and 4, but it's gonna be tough going.

Years ago I worked with an older woman who had hip replacement. At first they replacement it with the wrong parts so they had to go back in to replace that. She was out for six months and was still in pain. I walked with her everyday during lunch and she had an awful limp. Haven't heard from her since 2004 tho!!

Best wishes for Andy and his curly fro 8)

At 82 my Dad fell in a nursing home, broke his hip, and had to have surgery. He never fully woke up :(
