American tennis player Sam Querrey injured his right forearm while sitting on a glass table on Monday in Bangkok, Thailand. The 21-year-old had just finished practice at the Impact Arena when the freak accident took place. Apparently the table shattered while Querrey was resting on it, severely injuring his arm.
Querrey was immediately rushed to hospital for emergency surgery and will likely miss up to six weeks of action.
The American had been enjoying the most productive year of his career, raising his ranking to No. 25 in world on the strength of a title in Los Angeles and five tour finals.
The California native will stay in a Bangkok hospital until he is prepared and fly back to his home in Thousand Oaks.
Querrey was quoted on his Twitter feed as saying, “worst day ever.”
Querrey, who arrived in Bangkok on Friday will now be replaced in the draw by a lucky loser. The 6′6″ American was one of the leading candidates for the title in Bangkok.
