Welcome back to the tour Stefan Koubek
Welcome back Koubek
Stefan Koubek has recovered from the back surgery and will be returning to the tour next week in the Mons Challenger and then like I wrote in my previous entry on him, he got the expected Wild Card into the Vienna.
It’s going to take him a bit of time to get back into the swing of things naturally and as he said in his last blog entry, that he is hitting the ball well, but lacking in conditioning. Well, one can always get fitter and two no matter the amount of training and rehab is done on the courts, it doesn’t beat match practice. He should be able to play some challengers at the end of the year as well and he will play in Melbourne with his protected ranking.
The most important thing is that his back surgery was successful and that he doesn’t feel any pain when he is playing, so I don’t expect too many big results straight away, but that it’s irrelevant compared to his health. I am just happy that he is back on court playing again.
