Olé cites a source from David's camp:
The tear is causing him a lot of pain, it hurts even if he just says hi. We're going to evaluate the development on a day-to-day basis. We have to wait until the area has healed. Right now, he's taking painkillers.Which really doesn't sound too promising, two weeks ahead of the Davis Cup semifinal.
The objective is to take away the pain. He'll continue with the rehabilitation process but we cannot say when he'll be ready to pick up a racquet again.
Jaite: We have to wait and see how things develop with David. This setback means that we had to wait a little but on Monday, we're going to announce the team.Whether David will be at one hundred percent two weeks from now seems highly doubtful, to say the least. But the question still is whether he might try to play (and if Jaite will let him) if he's at a little or much less than one hundred percent.
Q: You still have time until Tuesday.
Jaite: Tuesday is the last day but Monday or Tuesday won't make a difference. Afterwards, we can still change [the line-up] up until an hour before the draw ceremony. It would be good if all the players would be available until then. Those who were part of the team against Croatia, as well as those who were not. They all want to play.
Q: You spoke to David before he left for Buenos Aires. What was your impression of him?
Jaite: He was calm. He was in pain. I think nobody foresaw this kind of setback. But he was okay, he wanted to get to Argentina to begin with the treatment as quickly as possible, to see if he might be able to play. Obviously, nobody likes to miss a Grand Slam but setbacks like that happen to tennis players.
Q: Berlocq already knew that he's going to be the fifth [player to get nominated], that's what he told us.
Jaite: No, I wouldn't nominate a fifth player. We talked to Charly on Sunday. Before we knew that about David. David came to talk to us on Monday night, he said he'd wait and see how he was on Tuesday morning. At that moment, it was maybe just a contracted muscle. And to Charly we talked ahead of that because we wanted to explain to him why he wouldn't be among the four [players to get nominated]. That we'd go with the same team like against Croatia and that in case there was a setback he might be an option for us. But he's not the fifth player. If he's there he'll work with the team. Leo Mayer as well. And it's good that way.
Q: What if David only just makes it...
Jaite: David doesn't have to only just make it. Because that wouldn't be good for the team, and also not for him. If he recovers he'll be on the team, if not... Every player has to be at one hundred percent.
