Injured Roger will miss Madrid and Basel

12.10.2005 | Tennis

Roger injured a ligament in his right foot during training

and will miss at least two weeks of tournaments.

He was hurt in training while he tried to hit a forehand drive shot. The mishap will keep Roger out of action for up to three weeks.


Roger will miss next week's Madrid Masters. He will also miss his home event, the Swiss Indoors in Basel.


"After bad luck last year with my thigh and now this. I'm extremely disappointed, above all that I can't play at home for the second straight year in Basel. But I'm hoping to go to Shanghai again perfectly fit," said Roger.


Medical opinion is optimistic that Roger will be fit for the season-ending Masters Cup in Shanghai from November 13-20.
