Why Did Ernests Gulbis Retire?
07.06.2017 15:29:28 | Those looking forward to the second round match Robredo – Gulbis were disappointed. The Latvian retired due to an injury. Yesterday he played a match against Slovak Gombos, but after that he was unable to continue. "Gulbis had felt pain in his abdominal muscle already before the match, however, he finished it and then came saying that the pain was getting worse. To be sure whether he could continue, we took him to hospital and magnetic resonance confirmed a rupture in an abdominal muscle," the tournament doctor Rene Kloc said.

Tommy Robredo: This Year I Am Staying Longer
06.06.2017 16:52:52 | This is Tommy Robredo's second time in Prostejov. In 2013, his first time, he only spent one day at UniCredit Czech Open. "This year I am definitely staying longer," he said. In 2013 he was the second seeded in Prostejov and 31st ATP. "He had a training session in the morning, and during that training he renewed an old injury and decided not to participate in the tournament," said the tournament manager Jaroslav Navratil. "He acted as a true professional, it was much more fair not to start playing rather than play two or three games and then say he could not continue. Not to mention the money... Robredo said he was not a hundred per cent fit to perform his best at our tournament," Navratil added.
