Timea Bacsinszky pays a visit to the Health Parc
Tightly packed rows of spectators are gathered in the foyer of the St. Jakobshalle, and as a pretty young lady checks in at the entrance to the Health Parc, the crowd grows even bigger. Timea Bacsinszky (24), a professional tennis player (WTA number 256) who has long been plagued by injury, is about to undergo a health check. This attractive service, which includes an eye test and a hearing test, is available to all visitors at the tournament and, what's more, it's free of charge. "I think that health checks like this are very good indeed. They are extremely important for athletes as they enable us to train effectively and with a clear Focus." said the lady from the Waadtland region. The Health Parc also offers fitness enthusiasts the chance to measure their strength and their muscle mass. According to unconfirmed reports, manager Nathalie Beck is also expecting a visit from Arnold Schwarzenegger. If these rumours are true, then the Terminator will probably cause the machines to malfunction.
