Hamstrung Jeff makes semis

Doubles specialist Jeff Coetzee went as far as the semi-finals of the Austrian Open tennis tournament at the weekend.
Coetzee and British partner Jamie Murray progressed to the semis but went down to Chile’s Hans Podlipnik-Castillo and Austrian partner Max Raditschnigg.
The third seeds lost 7-5 6-3 and their conquerors went down to tournament fourth seeds Dustin Brown (Jamaica) and Rogier Wassen of the Netherlands in the final 3-6 7-5 10-7.
“It wasn’t good,” said Coetzee. “I finished the match but hurt the hamstring again. Now I’m back in London sorting it out.”
Coetzee delayed his departure for Europe after problems with the same hamstring and will be hoping he sorts it out quickly ahead of the US Open at the end of the month.
“Luckily I’ve got two weeks off in London now which should help.”
